When I’m in need of a spiritual tune up or more clarity around my purpose I make myself this wonderful cleansing bath with some of the branches from my cedars at my home.
I find this to be a simple and relaxing way to detox your entire energetic being. Using what nature has provided us for our own healing is such a beautiful gift.
Once I cut my branches I wash them and boil them for 45 minutes.
Drain the branches and pour the water into my bath.
I also keep the branches and place them into my water.
I’m also a big fan of Rosemary Oil and include 3 drops of that as well.
Before I get in I take white buffalo sage and cleanse my 4 bodies (physical, emotional, spiritual + mental)
Light a candle and sink into my delicious bath.
If you are wondering why cedar I’ve found this information below that’s helpful in understanding its powerful benefits.
Cedar is one of the most important Native American ceremonial plants, used by many tribes as an incense and purifying herb. Cedar is especially associated with prayer, healing, dreams, and protection against disease. Many Salish tribes consider the cedar tree a symbol of generosity and providence, and had special rituals regarding the felling of cedar trees. Cedar is commonly used as part of sweat lodge ceremonies, and is also one of the herbs frequently included in medicine bundles and amulets. Cedar leaves and bark are used as medicine plants in many tribes as well. More on Native American Indian Cedar Medicine here
