Last week's podcast episode about the Goddess Melusine taught us the importance of making self-care a non-negotiable practice. As a mermaid, it's no surprise that Melusine's self care routine included bath time, but recently when I took a highly unscientific, informal Facebook poll on your favorite self-care practice, you mentioned that you love treating yourself to a regular bubble bath, too.
Bathing is an obvious practice for self-maintenance, but there is truly something magical about soaking in water as a holistic healing practice.
I recall one particularly challenging time in my life when, after losing my father to cancer and in the midst of a very contentious custody battle with my ex-husband, my girlfriends and I decided to get away for a weekend trip to a nearby hot springs resort. I soaked in the mineral waters for most of the day and night. It was exactly the tonic my body, mind and soul needed at the time.
Healing baths are nothing new, as this is something found in cultures across the globe. I've often wondered when practices span cultures like this, is it because the practice satisfies a deep, perhaps primordial, human need within?
In today's episode of The Goddess Diaries Radio, I am talking to Dr. Paulette Sherman, the author of the newly published "The Book of Sacred Baths: 52 Bathing Rituals to Revitalize Your Spirit."
She talks about the importance of Sacred Bathing as part of your self-care routine.
