Since we have more at-home time now, it's a great opportunity to improve self care for you and your family. One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is by adding common salt to your daily shower or bath routine. If you do this in the evening, it can help you have a great night's sleep.
Pranic Healers will recommend salt showers and baths to their clients as a long-term approach to keeping their energy clean. As Pranic Healers, we use salt and water to dispose of unwanted energy in our clinic setting; and we regularly follow healer-hygiene practices by bathing or showering with salt. You can do this at home.
SALT BATH: Fill your bathtub with water at a warm to hot temperature you prefer. If you have lavender essential oil, add that to the water. If it is a high quality oil, start with 10 drops. If you are unsure of the quality, start with 5 drops. If it is granulated salt, add before entering the bath. If it is rock salt, get in the bath and THEN add the salt for comfort reasons. Soak for 15-20 minutes, but no longer than 30 minutes, as you will reabsorb the unwanted energy. Afterwards, shower off the salt residue. For children (not infants or toddlers), adjust ratios down, depending on water level in the tub. Use fewer drops of oil.
Salt baths are the most powerful method, but if you do not have a bathtub, a salt shower will work well.
SALT SHOWER: Mlix a clean-ingredient shower gel, table salt, and lavender oil (5 drops or more/1 cup of salt) to a spreadable consistency. The ratio and amount of lavender oil depends a lot on personal preference. Apply to the body and let it remain for 3-5 minutes, then rinse, imagining gray energy leaving the body and disappearing down the drain. Note: make sure that you apply to the back and to the solar plexus (just below the breast bone), liver, spleen, and kidney areas. This will improve the cleansing and relaxing properties.
In this blog, we are referring to table salt, solar-dried rock salt, kosher salt, whatever type you have on hand, iodized or non-iodized. These types are easily found online. Solar-dried rock salt is commonly available in store and online at home improvement stores. It does not have to be expensive dead sea salt or Himalayan salt for this purpose. Epsom salt, while it is widely and successfully used for physical aches and pains, does not have the same properties for soothing as sodium chloride. Think about how table salt is used for centuries to draw out impurities.
