Full Moon Bath Ritual

Updated: Oct 5

I am away this month, preparing for the arrival of the newest member of our family. The baby is due any day now and we are all hoping for a Full Moon Baby!


The Full Moon is known as a time to release and let go. She illuminates the darkest of corners, making it a perfect time to shine light into your own life and assess what is and isn’t working.


Enjoy this process of preparing, soaking, and reflecting!


1. Clear and Create Sacred Space

Clean your space with intention. Clear everything from around your tub and only put back that which adds divine energy. Consider sprinkling in sacred sensuality with candles, music, and incense.


2. Prepare Your Bath Water

Whether you are a fan of bubbles, salts, or oils - choose your scent based on the feelings you want to feel more of in the month ahead. Do you seek to feel more confident, more loved, more patient, or more at peace? Think on this and then do a quick search to pair it with an essential oil/scent that will support your vision.


If you have moon water left over from last month, add some of that to your water. Save a little to pour over yourself while you are in the water.


3. Gather Crystals and Nature’s Beauty

You chose the scent to support the feelings you wanted to feel more in the month ahead - now it is time to gather crystals that will amplify them for you.

Some of my favorite crystals for my Full Moon Baths are quartz (spiritual growth), amethyst (spiritual healing, calmness, and wisdom), moonstone (inner clarity, cyclical change, and a connection to the feminine), and citrine (clarity, positivity and optimism).


Flower petals or a bouquet of herbs are also lovely additions to your experience.


4. Layer in Luxury

Luxury means something different to each of us. I enjoy soothing my skin with a deliciously scented facial masque, preparing a freshly washed and warm towel, and laying out a soft goddess gown to slip into after my bath make my experience feel special.


Think about what would make your experience special and gather those items.


Use the energy from the water and crystals to generate your vision.


What am I seeing?

What am I ready to release?

What do I desire to create?



5. Scribe Your Gratitude

As the water fills your tub, take a moment to write a list or letter of gratitude. What are you thankful for in your life - right now? Let it pour out onto the page as the tub fills up.


6. Journal Your Vision

Before you go on with the rest of your Full Moon ritual and ceremony, please take time to write down your vision and the answers that were downloaded to you during your soak.


7. Nourish Your Skin


Take the time to nourish your skin now. Coconut oil is my favorite ingredient for this part of the ceremony. I'll be adding in a little Pink Pepper, Rose, and Vanilla essential oil. This is a delicious part of the self-love ritual, so be sure to savor each body part. As you rub in the oil, thank your body for her strength, grace, and love - even in those moments, you were not loving to her. She deserves your attention and is grateful for it.


8. Carry Your Crystals

The crystals you used are now divine generators of your vision. Carry them in your pockets and let them be a reminder of the visions you cast while in your Full Moon Bath.


Goddess Sister, I pray you are able to find sacred time to bless yourself with this ritual.


xxoo,
