Like breath, it is vital to us
When I am stressed whether it is my body
or my mind that needs relaxation
I always end my day with a long warm bath.
And even though my bathroom isn't nestled in the beauty
of the outdoors like the photo above, I still take time to
make my tiny room a sacred space.
Candles can transform any room into
a place of welcome.
A bath infused with lavender's sweet, gentle scent
calms the overstimulated mind and
prepares the body for sleep.
To prepare the infusion combine a half cup of fresh lavender
blossoms with four cups of boiling water in a French press.
Let steep for twenty minutes.
Fill your bathtub, then pour the infusion into the bath,
and soak in to the comfort of lavender.
In very simple yet powerful ways
water can heal our bodies and our souls.
