Midnight Bath Soak Recipe for a Detoxifying Full Moon Bath Ritual

This midnight bath soak recipe for a full moon bath ritual is one of a kind! A lavish bath experience to detox, restore, and renew a sense of balance in your life.

Throughout history, we have followed the lunar cycle of the moon, highlighted by two post ends, the new moon and the full moon. The new moon begins the lunar cycle when it waxes, growing larger until it climaxes into the full moon. From there, the moon wanes, growing smaller until the cycle ends, and the new moon begins a fresh cycle. 

It’s no secret that our planet is covered by seventy percent water. And that the moon controls the ebbs and flows of our ocean tides around the globe. 

At birth, we are made of over seventy percent water; even as adults, we still have an average of sixty percent water. Many make the argument that because of this, we, too, are affected by the lunar cycle. 

Even the Farmer’s Almanac, one my father and grandfathers used to plan their weeks for planting and harvesting, hatching chickens, and more, agrees that the moon, primarily the full moon, has long been thought to impact human health. And the Farmer’s Almanac concludes that a full moon bath ritual is an ideal way to care for our well-being and replenish ourselves each month. 

I concur a lavish bath experience is one the easiest ways to detox, restore, and renew a sense of balance in our lives. And this midnight bath soak recipe for a full moon bath ritual is one of a kind!

What Is A Full Moon Bath? If you haven’t heard of a full moon bath before, I won’t leave you in the dark!

What Is A Full Moon Bath?

I won’t leave you in the dark if you haven’t heard of a full moon bath before. A full moon bath, in all practicality, is intentionally taking a bath on a full moon. 

Why is it good to take a bath on a full moon? It is said to bring harmony to the body and soul. The authors of Moon Bath: Bathing Rituals and Recipes for Relaxation and Vitality explain moon bath rituals can enrich our self-care practice with the natural rhythms of the lunar cycle. Ayurveda originating more than 3,000 years ago, practices bath rituals on bright moon days, such as the full moon and new moon.  

Each can make us feel differently. You see, just as we set new goals and tasks with each new month, a new moon is also all about fresh starts, planting seeds, and setting new intentions for the new lunar cycle. 

Whereas a full moon, when the moon is at its brightest point, illuminates things so we can see them in a different light. This allows us to see situations for what they are and evaluate what is no longer working for us. Many compare it to New Year’s Eve when we look back on the year and decide what we don’t want to take with us into the new year. 

And as the moon wanes, it supports us as we let go of bad habits, old patterns, or even material things. Many find the full moon to be energizing, and it’s the perfect time to literally and figuratively “clean house.” 

In short, new moons mean new beginnings, and full moons mean release. 

That’s why this bath soak recipe for a full moon bath ritual, like my harvest moon soaking salts I make every autumn, is designed to detoxify the body and shed dead skin cells. The blend of black Hawaiian sea salt made from activated coconut shell charcoal and mineral-rich dead sea salt from the Dead Sea resembles the night sky, dotted by tiny, countless white stars. 

It’s the perfect antidote to release what isn’t supporting your well-being and make way for what can, with a fresh start.

How to Prepare for a Full Moon Bath Soak

As I hinted, the full moon’s energy provides us a great opportunity to clean up. Rather you de-junk the junk drawer, grow through your clothes in the closet to donate, or sweep out the cobwebs; cleaning is a good way to prepare for a full moon ritual. 

Give each room a quick clean-up with a DIY multi-purpose spray, or place your focus on one room in the home each full moon. The bathroom is a great place to start. Use my bathroom cleaning checklist to remove soap scum, toothpaste splatters, makeup smears, and put the room in order. 

You’ll get the most out of a full moon bath ritual when you’re in a calm, relaxing space. So, don’t forget to light the candles! 

Quite honestly, the more you put into preparing for a full moon ritual by beginning the process of release with cleaning and organizing, the more you’ll get out of the experience. And I don’t know about you, but I feel much more relaxed when our home is clean and tidy.

Make A Full Moon Bath Ritual A Staple In Your Calendar

The lunar cycle offers us a beautiful opportunity and age-old practice of release and renewal. Use a lunar calendar ← this one is beautiful or the Farmer’s Almanac to find the next full moon. 

Then begin the release process that day and end it with a full moon bath ritual. When the moon is visible, open a window to the moonlight if you can or light a few candles around the bathtub. (My homemade tea lights are small enough to fit almost anywhere). 

Pour yourself a warm bath and scoop a half cup of this midnight bath soak into the bath water. Then slip into the black water under the petals of dried flowers to detox, restore, and renew. 

Scoop small granules of salt in your hands to gently exfoliate dry areas. Let go, releasing things that no longer serve you as you soak to cleanse and detoxify. Create space for more good in your life and seek balance.

Make the new and full moon a part of your monthly self-care routine to maximize their benefits. Pin this midnight bath soak recipe to your Bath Soak Pinterest Board and while you’re there, be sure to follow Life-n-Reflection for more inspiring ideas.
