As a deeply healing and luxurious self-care practice, bathing can bring forth ultimate relaxation, improve circulation, relieve pain and strengthen immunity. But beyond the everyday bath, is the bathing ritual. Creating a weekly experience that allows you to completely focus on yourself inside and out.  A bathing ritual is an opportunity to tie in body and spirit. Ancient cultures knew the benefits of bathing turning to the water element as ritual purification. At Field Trip, we understand the spirit and the benefits of immersing ourselves in a ritual bath. Therefore, we are so happy to stock the magical, Botanical Bath Teas by Moon Bath

Moon Bath came into being through a group of women who found that during their personal ritual baths, they reconnected with themselves and received the profound healing benefits of plants, minerals and oils. These women felt compelled to share this healing and restoring experience with others, and thus Moon Bath came to life.  Botanical Moon Bath Teas help to create your bath waters into healing herb infused waters with the use of intentionally crafted botanical blends that enhance your connection to the energy of the moon. All of the Lunar Blends promote healthy skin, healing and relaxation that correspond with the phase of the moon. 

How To Take A Moon Bath

STEEP  —  The process of preparing your Botanical Bath Tea begins with filling and turning on your kettle. While the water is heating, pour the dry botanicals into a large (34 oz) French press*.

Add hot water to French press, cover and let the Bath Tea steep for 15-20 minutes. This process of steeping the botanicals — in just under boiling temp water — is imperative to extract the medicinal properties from the botanicals and receive the most potent healing benefits.

SOAK  —  Run your bath water, compress and pour the Botanical Bath Tea and Moon Bath’s Infused Sundance Sea Salt into your tub before you get in. Consider burning Sacred Smoke to clear the space. Slip into your Moon Bath and notice how your energy shifts as you submerge in the healing water. Allow your senses to awaken and your physical body to soften. Let the medicinal waters

remind you of the healing power of plants and the value of creating space to reconnect with yourself.

INTEGRATE  —  Before, during or after your ritual bath, do a mindfulness practice such as repeating an intention, gentle stretching, meditation or journaling.

*If you do not have a French press available, you can prepare your Botanical Bath Tea on the stovetop: bring 34 oz of water to a gentlesimmer, turn off stove, add botanicals, stir and steep covered for 15-20 minutes. Strain into a pitcher or strain directly in your bath water.

By treating yourself to a weekly Moon Bath, you are not only cleansing your physical body, you are cultivating clarity, vitality and balance for your whole being.
