3 Simple Baths for Spiritual Cleansing to Detox Your Aura

A spiritual cleansing bath is a fabulous way to melt away the day’s stress, and freshen your aura. Your aura is the energetic mirror of your physical body, as well as, the place where thoughts, emotions, and intentions are held. The aura is basically your energetic story.

Read an Introduction to Spiritual Cleansing and Protection. 

Throughout the day you accumulate energy from the people and places you have encountered. Without releasing, and protecting yourself from these blocks you create more energetic obstacles in your life. You may find you feel lethargic, moody, and off kilter. If you feel ungrounded, and out of your head it is a sure sign you need a good spiritual cleansing!

As the day goes by you are walking through bubbles of thought forms, emotions, and negative energies that people are spewing all around. This is a natural by-product of daily living, and something that sensitive people (empaths) know far to well.

Here are three of my favorite baths for spiritual cleansing. They are simple and effective!

Baking Soda Bath

Baking soda is a common household item that packs a powerful punch of spiritual cleansing. A natural alkalizer and detoxifier baking soda is great at pulling out blockages from the aura. Returning your energetic vibration to something more neutral. Leaving you with a sense of peace, and equilibrium. This is especially helpful when dealing with exhausting people, or situations. I find it combats feelings of anxiety and depression very well.

Simply run a bath of warm water that feels relaxing to the touch. Add a cup of baking soda to water. As the water runs the baking soda will begin to dissolve neutralizing the water’s acidity, not only leaving you feeling energetically level, but also leaving your skin feeling silky smooth.

I like to say a prayer or affirmation while bathing in a spiritual cleansing bath. This can be a simple statement that comes straight from the heart. Something like:

“As I relax into this healing bath all negative blockages and energies dissolve. I am wrapped in the light of the Universe.”

Apple Cider Vinegar Bath

Apple Cider Vinegar is another great remedy for energetic blocks and releasing psychic toxins. Soaking in Apple cider vinegar is beneficial for easing skin issues, detoxify and restoring its natural ph balance. It is also rich in vitamins and minerals which can be absorbed through the skin.

The onset of a cold can often mean energetic disturbances in the aura…taking an apple cider vinegar bath will help the cold run its course, and move the energetic debris out of your system.

Again, you will run a warm bath that is relaxing to the touch. Adding 1-2 cups of Apple cider vinegar to the bath water. Slip into the tub, easing your mind and relaxing. Allow yourself to become completely embraced by the experience. You can visualize the energetic toxins, and debris being drawn from your body/aura, into the bath to be neutralized.

Be sure to allow your head to be submerged for a few moments. The base of the head/back of the neck is one of the major places we take on stray energy. You can also use the above affirmation, or an appropriate prayer during this bath.

If the smell of Apple cider vinegar is offensive to your nose then add a 5-10 drops of peppermint oil to the bath. Peppermint is also a detoxifier, and it uplifts the senses… Easing the mind and emotions.

Sea Salt Bath

Sea Salt is a traditional bath for spiritual cleansing. Salt also has a detoxifying quality that will draw out impurities in the energy bodies. You can substitute sea salt for Epsom salt which is high in magnesium, easing aches, pains and the muscles.

Run a warm bath adding in a handful of sea salt. As you soak begin to imagine the tube filling with pure white light. This is the healing light of the Universe. Imagine any dark, and negative vibrations lingering in the aura being absorbed by this light. Envision these blocks being replaced with nothing but positive intentions.

Salt can dry out the skin so you may want to dress yourself with a rich oil after your bath. You can dress yourself with a mixture of olive oil, and lemongrass essential oil to nourish the skin, and charge the aura with a magnetic quality. Lemongrass oil is an old botanical used for attracting prosperity and good fortune.

Baking Soda, Sea Salt, and Vinegar Bath

Adding all 3 ingredients together will create a wonderful spiritual cleansing bath!! Or combine them as you like. Remember to use an affirmation, prayer or visualization.

After bathing spend time in meditation, prayer, or just relax for the evening. I like to make a warm cup of chamomile and valerian tea to calm my nerves and promote sleep. Turn in early for the night, allowing the healing process to continue into sleep.

If you are feeling especially heavy and blocked use a spiritual cleansing bath for 7 consecutive days.

      i am interested in the final suggestion of using all three ingredients for my cleansing bath, however i have read that these baths should only be taken once a month ideally and never more than weekly. your take on that?

        Spiritual cleansing should be done monthly as a way of keeping yourself in high vibration. However, most people come to learn about spiritual cleansing when they are experiencing extreme blockage and in that case doing a series of baths is ideal. Traditionally you would do this for 3 days or even 7-9 days everyday!

    Hi Shaheen,
    I am putting together a workshop on spiritual bathing for a mind body and spirit festival I am attending. Have used magical baths for twenty years, from complex multi-herb formula to simple daily additions to strength my energy.

    Great page. The way you write is really clear and without any dogma.

    I plan to use share your affirmation with the group “as i relax into this healing bath all negative energies and blockages dissolve…….etc.” So I wanted to send thanks to you.

    It’s great that it’s not traditionally religious, because not all the people in the talk will have a spiritual practice. I like the fact that it reaches to all in a simple and adaptable way. I hope you don’t mind if I include it as a suggestion in my talk.

    Bright Blessings x

      Hello Amanda, thank you for your kind words. I am so happy that you found this piece helpful for you, and for your teachings. You are welcomed to use the affirmation, but please give me credit for that piece. I’d love to see your presentation or hear more about it if you’d be open to sharing. Thank you! Shaheen
