Happy Imbolc! Or if you aren't Pagan Groundhog Day.
Today marks the beginning of Spring.
Its when the earth starts waking up. The Goddess is waking from her slumber in the Earth. Persephone is going to be heading home to her mother Demeter. It's when the groundhog sees his shadow or not and we have 6 more weeks of winter or 6 more weeks till spring (did you notice either way it's 6 weeks).
Anyway a nice thing to do for Imbolc is to take a detox or purifying bath. I'm going to give you my Easy Peasy receipe for one that I use most of the time.
Easy Peasy Detox Bath
- 1 cup of Epsom salts
- 1/2 cup of baking soda
- Couple of drops of tea tree oil (optional)
See isn't that easy?
Now what you're going to want to do is get the water in the tub as hot as you can stand it, the key here is that you want to be sweating but not so hot that you burn yourself. While the water is running you want to put your new bath salts into the water so they are spread around. Then you can slip into the tub turn on some nice music and relax for as long as you want.
Have a happy Imbolc!
You should cause I'm total awesomesauce.
