Ground, Soothe, Reflect
The New Moon is a time of rebirth and renewal, calling upon us to tune inward and take rest. Fragrant like a field of lavender and chamomile, our New Moon Bath Tea is deeply calming to the mind, soothing to the physical body, and uplifting to the spirit.
According to Ayurveda, the air and ether element, known as vata, is dominant during the New Moon, evoking a cool and wavering energy. This Bath Tea balances the New Moon’s energy with a combination of grounding and warming botanicals — it invites us to take comfort in the void, as this is the open space in which we plant the seeds of new intentions.

Two baths / 8 oz
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 gentle simmer, 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.
