Herb and Crystal Baths for Relaxation and Healing

Feb 26, 2021 07:50AM ● By Mackenzie Dickson citalliance (Follow)

Mother Earth has provided so many healing tools for us, and more people are beginning to awaken to the concept that crystals and herbs harmonize beautifully and enhance one another when combined. There are so many ways to bring these gifts together, and herbal and crystal baths are one of the easiest yet effective ways of doing so. When you enter the warm water, your pores open up, allowing the medicinal constituents of the plants to enter your body unimpeded. Water is an excellent conductor of energy, amplifying the benefits of the crystals. Combining the two makes for a luxurious and powerful healing experience.
It is important to keep in mind that not all crystals are appropriate for submerging in your bathwater, as some contain toxic elements, such as aluminum or asbestos. Additionally, some stones are not appropriate choices, as they may be water-soluble and/or their appearance may be altered by water submersion. Make sure that you know the properties of your stone before placing it into the water. As a general rule, stones that are part of the quartz crystal family, such as rose quartz, amethyst, clear quartz, smoky quartz and citrine, are safe for submersion. When in doubt, consult a certified crystal practitioner or place it along the rim of your bathtub in lieu of submerging it in your water. Always use tumbled stones to ensure your comfort while bathing. Nikki Zalewski (Follow)


Here are some lovely herb and crystal combinations to get you started with this practice:
Energetic Cleansing and Protection
Oatstraw, eucalyptus and smoky quartz
Enhancing Intuition
Mugwort, blue lotus and clear quartz
Lift Your Spirits
Calendula, St. John’s wort and citrine
Nourish Your Physical and Emotional Heart
Rosebuds and petals, hibiscus and rose quartz
Lavender, chamomile and amethyst
Add a few drops of high-quality, organic essential oil or some unrefined salt, Epsom salt and/or baking soda for additional benefits. When you finish your bath, be sure to remove your crystals and filter out the herbs before draining your tub to prevent any clogged pipes. You can also place the herbs in a secure muslin bag or cheesecloth prior to placing into your tub for easy removal. If you do not have a bathtub, you can get the same benefits from a footbath.
Not only will this practice add healing benefits to your self-care routine, but you will have a chance to connect to some of the gifts our beautiful Mother Earth has provided for us.
