Aphrodite Bathing Ritual
Perfect for a “pre-date” ritual for Valentines Day, or just to add a little extra sparkle to your aura!
Supplies: 3 pieces of rose quartz
A pink or white candle
Pink rose petals
9 drops of your favorite oil
Pen + Paper
Directions: Friday is the ideal time to do this ritual – the day aligned with Venus, the planet of love. Fill the bathtub with warm water, add one of your rose quartz crystals, the oil, and then sprinkle in the rose petals. Before getting in the bath write down what you want from this ritual, be as detailed as possible, fold the piece of paper three times toward you and place it under the candle. Light the incense and the candle and step into the beautiful bath you have made yourself. Submerge yourself in the healing waters and allow yourself to relax. Soak for about twenty minutes holding the two remaining rose quartz crystals one in each hand. After the bath, give the rose petals back to the earth, and carry your rose quartz crystals with you in your purse or place them on your nightstand.
