Inspired by today’s chamomile tea ritual and the sprig of eucalyptus I had in a vase in my room from an old flower arrangement…
- Chamomile tea – Love, Purification, Sleep, Cleansing, Peace, Tranquility
- Eucalyptus leaves – Protection, Healing, Purification, Reconciliation
- White candle – Healing, Protection, Baths
So I brewed a giant pot of strong chamomile tea and let it cool to a comfortably warm temperature with the tea bags still in.
Ran the bath, lit the candle (this is a Cleansing candle I made myself with white rose, lavender and chamomile), and poured about half of the tea into the water.
Once in the bath, I took the sprig of eucalyptus and pulled one leaf at a time, each time taking in its scent (so much sweeter and gentler than eucalyptus oil), running it through the water and then stroking it across the places which are hurting while saying
’Thank you for healing me, I feel better already’
Then I took the remainder of the tea and poured it over my head and body.
’Thank you for cleansing me and bringing me peace,
that I might sleep well and awaken healed.'
I took the warm tea bags out of the pot, squeezed them and placed them over my eyes. I lay back in the bath and stayed there for a few moments allowing the chamomile to work its magic. (Chamomile tea is anti-inflammatory, reduces puffiness and dark circles around eyes and mainly it’s just instantly soothing.)
Air dried afterwards and now I’m heading to bed. Here’s hoping for a restful night.
