3 Simple Baths for Spiritual Cleansing to Detox Your Aura

simple baths for spiritual cleansing and clearing the aura with salt vinegar and baking soda

A spiritual cleansing bath is a fabulous way to ease the day’s stress and refresh your energy field or aura.

Do you know what an aura is? An aura is the energy field that surrounds your physical body. It holds the vibration of your thoughts, feelings and beliefs. Your aura will mirror your physical world, or vice-versa.

You might need a spiritual cleansing if you feel:

  • Lethargic and unrested.
  • Moody or overly emotional.
  • Off-kilter and ungrounded.
  • Cloudy, out of your head or unable to focus.

Throughout the day you accumulate stray energy from the people and places you have encountered. Ragged emotions and abrasive throught-forms float through the atmosphere like dust. Energetic detritus is a natural by-product of daily living. Every thought and feeling has to go somewhere!

If you are sensitive, prone to depression or display empathic tendencies you’ll be especially vulnerable energetic intrusion. As you can tell washing away energetic debris from the day is important for your wellbeing. Without releasing these energies you create more energetic blocks, which manifest as obstacles in your life.

Read an Introduction to Spiritual Cleansing and Protection. 

Would you like to perform your own spiritual cleansing? Here are three of my favorite bathes for spiritual cleansing. These are practical and very effective!!

Cleansing with Baking Soda

Baking soda is a common household product that packs a powerful punch. A natural alkalizer and detoxifier. A spiritual cleansing bath with baking soda neutralizes your aura. Afterward you are left with a sense of balance and peace. When you are dealing with exhausting people or situations this bath can be especially helpful. I find it also combats feelings of anxiety and depression very well.

Run a relaxing bath that feels warm to the touch. Add one cup of baking soda to your water. I use tried and true Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. While the water runs the baking soda will dissolve into the water. Once dissolved completely the acidity of the water is neutralized. Now your bath will spiritually cleanse and neutralize your aura, as well as, leaving your skin silky smooth.

Say a prayer or affirmation while you take your spiritual cleansing bath. A simple statement straight from the heart is appropriate. You can try something like:

“I relax into this healing bath where all negative energetic blocks are dissolved. I am wrapped in the nourishing energies of the Universe.”

Cleansing with Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar is another great ingredient for a spiritual cleansing bath. Use this bath as a remedy for releasing psychic toxins. An Apple cider vinegar bath is beneficial for easing skin issues. It will detoxify and restoring your skins natural ph balance. It is also rich in vitamins and minerals which are absorbed through the skin.

The onset of a cold can often mean energetic disturbances in the aura. At the first signs of a cold treat yourself to an apple cider vinegar to move any energetic debris from your aura and ease the duration of your cold.

Run a relaxing bath that feels warm to the touch. Add a 1/2 cup of Apple cider vinegar to your bath water. I prefer Bragg Apple Sider Vinegar!! Allow the vinegar to mix with the water and then slip into the tub. Let your mind and body ease into relaxation. Feel the water embrace every fiber of your being.

While you soak in the tub you can mentally visualize the energetic blocks dissolving. Imagine that all the toxins lingering in your energy field being drawn out and neutralized by these cleansing waters. See, sense and know that this is happening. You don’t need to force anything. Just relax!

Submerge your head or the base of your skull in the water. The base of the head and back of the neck is one of the major centers where we absorb energy. You can repeat the affirmation from the sea salt bath if you like, or speak from your heart.

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. It eases your senses, clears your mind and uplifts your emotions.

Cleansing with Sea Salt

Sea Salt is one of the most traditional bathes for spiritual cleansing. Salt has a detoxifying quality that will draw out impurities in from your energy bodies. I prefer sea salt for this bath as it draws on the regenerative power of the sea. You can substitute sea salt for Epsom salt, which is high in magnesium, easing muscle aches and pains.

Run a relaxing bath that feels warm to the touch. Add one cup of sea salt to the water. I prefer Dead Sea Salt. Slip into the bath and allow yourself to relax. In your minds eye imagine the tub being filled with vibrant white light. Know that this is the Universal light of healing.

See, sense and know that this bath is drawing out all negativity from your aura. See the light filling all the dark spots in your energy body, until you are radiant with glowing light. Set an intention for yourself during this bath by repeating a mantra, such as: “Peace and healing.”

Salt can be very drying to your skin to avoid this dress yourself with a rich body oil. You can dress yourself with a mixture of olive and lemongrass essential oil to nourish the skin. This mixture has the added benefit of magnetizing your aura with positive energy. Lemongrass oil is an old botanical used for attracting prosperity and good fortune.

Baking Soda, Sea Salt, & Vinegar

You can create a bath for spiritual cleansing by combining all three ingredients together. Or you can use them in whatever combination you like. Always set an intention for your bath by visualizing your desire and repeating a prayer, affirmation or mantra.

After a Spiritual Cleansing Bath

After your spiritual cleansing bath spend time relaxing. Remember, a bath for spiritual cleansing is not used to wash your physical body. Treat this as a holy act. Usually I take a cleansing bath in the evening, then I retire early to meditate, pray or tuck myself into bed.

You can make a whole evening self-care ritual by taking a bath for spiritual cleanings. Followed by meditation and prayer. Then curl up with your favorite book and a cup of chamomile and valerian tea to calm your nerves and promote peaceful sleep.

Remember: Turn in early for the night allowing the healing process to continue into sleep.

When should you take a spiritual cleansing bath? 

Sunday is the traditional day to take a spiritual cleansing bath or do any type of cleansing work. However, you can perform cleansing work whenever you need it the most. Try to dedicate a set time each week for a simple self-care ritual.

If you perform a bath for spiritual cleansing once a week or once a month as daily upkeep you’ll see positive changes in your spiritual and energetic wellbeing. You can perform other self-care rituals in between your spiritual bathes. When you take care of yourself you’ll get radically positive results. 

During difficult times or especially crossed conditions you should perform a series of spiritual cleansing bathes. Take one bath each night for seven days to mitigate the effects heavy and oppressive energies.

      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?

      • Shaheen on January 9, 2019 at 11:55 pm

        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
