“There is no need to go to India or anywhere else to find peace. You will find that deep place of silence right in your room, your garden or even your bathtub.” Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
It’s been 9 days of health, wholeness and perfection, and that’s just you waking up in the morning!
Your body now knows it is not in control and may be feeling some type of way about it.
If you have any aches or pains, tense places or tired joints, todays recipe will cure them all.
It is important to take warm baths during your fast, as water has its own unique healing properties.
You will need:
1 gallon of organic milk
3 tablespoons organic honey (buy local when you can)
*Fresh or dried chamomile, rose, or lavender flowers
Heat 1 cup of milk on medium heat. Add honey and reduce heat to low. Simmer until honey is mixed in completely. Run a hot bath. Add this cup of milk and remaining gallon to your bath. If it’s too hot, you don’t have to enter right away (it’s never supposed to be painful).
Add your fresh flowers to the bath water and let sit for at least 10 minutes.
Enter, relax, and let the milk and honey do all the work.
This skin-softening milk bath is wonderful with any type of milk. You can glam it up, make it way more decadent if you like. Some fasters’ use goats milk and others have found success with powdered milk.
For powdered milk recipes, use 3 tablespoons of organic powdered milk.
Soak for at least 20 minutes (and longer) in the tub!
Before leaving the tub, visualize any challenge, problem, illness or blockage flowing down the drain – forever washed away.
