Healing Baths for Each Phase of Your Cycle
Baths have been known for their healing properties for thousands of years. Not only are they used to cleanse the body, but they have also been used for spiritual practices.
When it comes to fertility and hormonal support we can use baths to help reduce stress, restore magnesium levels, and detoxify.
A bath can truly be what you make it - a time to relax, cleanse, and even birth.
I love to use baths to support my hormonal health by syncing them with my cycle.

Fertility Bath using Fertile Alchemy Aromatic Bath Soak
For this bath you will need the following;
(If you cannot find or afford everything on this list, use what you have. Intention is a powerful thing.)
Glass of Water or Raspberry Leaf Tea
Rose Quartz Chakrub (Optional)
1/2 cup Dried Hibiscus Leaf
1 lemon sliced
To prepare for your bath bring 8 cups of water to a boil and add Dried Hibiscus Leaf, Allow the water to boil for 2-3 minutes and remove from heat. While the hibiscus tea is steeping, hop in the shower for a quick rinse. Spiritual baths should always be done with a clean body.
After showering began to prepare your bath. Light your candles, turn on some relaxing music. I recommend you listen to this. As you run your bath water, grab the Hibiscus Tea and add it to the bath straining it as you pour as well as Fertile Alchemy Aromatic Bath Soak (1/2 the jar or for a deeply relaxing bath you may use 8 oz.) and let dissolve for 2-3 minutes. Check to make sure the bath water is a comfortable temperature.
Before you step into the tub say a prayer and/or set an intention for you bath. If you are attuned to Reiki you can infuse the bath water before you step in.
Slowly step into the tub and allow yourself to completely unwind. After 5 minutes, take a few deep belly breaths. Place one hand over your heart, and one over your womb and visualize a white or pink light flowing between the two. Once you're very relaxed grab your Chakrub or use your hands to gently caress your body. Rub acupressure points on your feet and legs using the Chakrub or your hands. While you sensually caress your body recite affirmations...
I AM FERTILE
I AM SENSUAL
I AM CREATIVE
I AM A DIVINE VESSEL
If you choose you can fully submerge your whole body in the tub. After 20-30 minutes carefully step out of the tub and lightly pat yourself dry. Slowly and gently apply body oil making sure to take your time, and to mindfully massage the oil into your skin. Once you have massaged your body, anoint your inner ankles and neck with Fertile Alchemy Aromatic Oil and relax until you fall asleep.
*PRIOR TO TAKING BATHS YOU SHOULD CHECK WITH YOUR PHYSICIAN TO SEE THAT IT IS OKAY.
