Full Moon in Aries Ritual Bath Salts

aries_saltsHow’s the full moon energy treating everyone? It’s a little intense over here.

This full moon in fiery Aries–also called the Traveler’s moon or the Harvest moon–is all about action, intensity, and breaking through obstacles. It’s about pursuing new passions, or bringing ones from this last year to light. It’s a force to be reckoned with. And it’s also damn exhausting.

I don’t know about you, but I’m spinning. So many ideas, so much to do, so much to keep up with. This energy is a powerful catalyst for movement–but take a minute to check in with yourself and ensure you’re not running yourself too ragged. Or becoming too competitive or overbearing to those around you, which is kind of Aries’s thing.

A little alone time might be in order. This is what I’m blending up tonight.

Full Moon in Aries Ritual Bath Salts

  • One part pink himalayan salt, for its high mineral content and detoxifying properties. But also because it’s pretty. And pink.
  • One part epsom or sea salt, for the same detoxifying purposes.
  • One part baking soda, to make your skin feel all soft and silky.
  • 4-8 drops of grounding, calming essential oils. I’m using lavender, cedarwood, and the Valor and Peace & Calming blends from Young Living. If you’re newer to oils, go easy on the quantity.
  • A handful of botanicals such as rose petals, lavender buds, chamomile, or jasmine flowers. This can end up being messy, so if that irks you add it all into a tub tea pouch or muslin bag.
  • Grounding, calming, loving crystals of your choice. I’ve got rose quartz, amethyst, clear quartz, tigers eye, aragonite, and pink aventurine on deck. Just don’t forget to charge those babies outside when you’re done.

Grab some tea or wine, put on some calming music, dim the lights, and let that Aries energy simmer down, now. It’ll still be around in the morning.

And go outside and say hi to that beautiful moon at some point tonight.

I wear a lot of hats. I’m a writer, designer, and motion graphics artist. A Taurus sun/Scorpio moon/Leo rising. An ENFP, HSP, and all-around bleeding heart. A folk medicine anthropologist and purveyor of tiny bottles of plant magic. I co-own Baskervillain Studios with my husband, John, and we live in a funky little enclave five-ish miles outside Atlanta with our kitty, Magical Mr. Murphy O. Milam. I started my blog because I’m fascinated by herbal medicine, natural remedies, essential oils, and DIY beauty. And because when the zombie apocalypse hits, damn it, I’m gonna need a trade. I’ll pull my weight, I promise. I write about my ongoing journey using herbs, Young Living essential oils, and traditional foods as a way to take ownership of my own health and wellness. I post recipes, herbal and folk remedies, and DIY skin and beauty care made from natural ingredients. And a little kitchen witchery sneaks in now and again.
