Cleopatra's Honey + Milk Bath
Ancient Egyptians believed the prerequisite to a heavenly afterlife was a heart that was light as a feather. To me, lightheartedness means that I’m 100% satisfied with and centered in my reality. It’s when I feel so good that everything around me reflects that- from my outer appearance, to my relationships, to work. When I prioritize my beauty rituals and wake up with glowing skin, everything around me seems to magically glow and fall into place.
One of Cleopatra’s daily desires was a bath. When we take the time to bathe, groom, and prioritize our beauty, everyone in our life benefits but most importantly, you do. We’ve adapted Cleopatra’s famous Milk and Honey bath with our own twist.
For the bath:
- 1 cup of coconut milk. High in Vitamin C, coconut milk helps with the elasticity of the skin.
- 1 cup of Epsom salts. Epsom salt eases tension in your muscles and clears your auric field, allowing space to receive.
- Raw or manuka honey- we love Activist Manuka honey.
- Red rose petals, dried hibiscus petals or a few slices of raw beet. We are going for the color red. When the color red is in your aura it is grounding and organized.
Once the bath is prepared, take 1 tsp raw honey. Mix a little water with honey so it easily glides across your skin. Rub the honey-water mixture into your face and neck.
Relax in the bath with the honey on your face for up to 15 minutes. Honey is extremely moisturizing. It is important the honey on your face does not dry and feel like it’s cracking. There is a common misconception that you want your face mask to dry and crack- it is actually very harmful for your skin! If it starts to dry out, splash a little water on your face. You can rinse the honey off directly into the bath.
Enjoy for as long as you like. For true Queen feels finish your bath with Rose Vetiver LAP Salve from head to toe. Be sure to send me a pic if you do!
