One of the quickest ways to release pent up energy and make space for something new is by marinating in a salt bath, but there’s ways to level up your salt bath that does even more wonders for your energetic, emotional, and mental health. Crystal Bath Therapy is one way to take your standard salt bath and turn it into a riveting experience.
What is Crystal Bath Therapy?
Crystal Bath Therapy is when you bathe with crystals or submerge your crystals into the bath itself. Soaking with your crystals is kind of like supercharging your bath to receive all the energetic properties of the crystal and one of the quickest ways to absorb the crystal’s energy into your own aura and orbit.
Benefits of Crystal Bath Therapy
While salt baths in general are regarded as good ways of releasing negative energy, protecting your aura, and letting go of stress, tension, and other low vibrating emotions, adding crystals to your salt baths can boost positive vibes and aid in releasing energy that might be stuck.
All crystals have their own energetic properties and have corresponding chakras, so using a crystal in your bath to help you move through something, release something, or understand something can be quite life changing.
How to maximize your Crystal Bath Therapy experience
It can be helpful to set an intention or affirmation for your bath before soaking in it. An intention or affirmation can help you choose a crystal that will support you in remaining in that vibe. For example, if your intention is to practice self-love during your bath, you might choose a heart-centered crystal like Rose Quartz. The Rose Quartz crystal would supercharge your bath with a positive, loving, and open energy that would help facilitate an experience of self-love.
The sacral chakra, which controls our creative, sexual and compassionate energy fields, is connected to the water element. One of the best ways to recharge and cleanse that chakra is through submerging your body in water. Utilizing crystals such as: Carnelian, Citrine, Tiger's Eye, Sunstone or Jasper during your bath experience will help to create a stabilized frequency between the sacral chakra and the soul alignment.
Another way you can maximize the benefits of Crystal Bath Therapy is by setting the overall mood of your space. Lighting candles such as the Buddha Beads crystal infused candles, using the cleansing kit, lighting some incense, adding some dry florals, or dropping some essential oils into the bath can all elevate the time you spend with yourself.
Which crystals to use in Crystal Bath Therapy
Not all crystals are water-safe, so it’s important to be mindful of which ones you use for Crystal Bath Therapy. A good rule of thumb is to avoid crystals that end in “-ite”, such as Malachite, Fluorite, Calcite, Selenite, Hematite and so forth.
Popular crystals, like the ones Buddha Beads carries such as Amethyst, Rose Quartz, Aventurine, Citrine, Jasper, Agate, Tiger’s Eye, and Black Obsidian are all water safe and make for the ultimate Crystal Bath Therapy session.
More than anything, adding crystals to your salt bath can increase relaxation, put you in a high frequency, and allow you to connect with yourself on a deeper, more intimate level.
