RITUAL BATHS RITUAL BATHS

During times of crisis, there is a certain comfort in turning to the rituals and practices that are within our control. As we begin to establish our new normals, including less time in the public realm, and more time spent at home connecting with ourselves, we’re turning to ritual baths to process our full range of emotions that are coming up. 


We can marinate in the stress and uncertainty of these trying times or we can bathe in the stillness, the pause, the gentleness of slowing down. We are choosing the latter, and thanks to Mama Medicine, bathing it all in has never felt so luxurious.


Read on for these two ritual bath recipes, as recommended by Mama Medicine.
