you're beautiful

I think you’ve reminded me of who I’m supposed to be. You’ve become the role model I never realized I wanted. Because us girls? We have to work a little harder. And you’ve made it clear that I was born to be someone who can stand on my two feet. You’ve shown me that I don’t need boyish praise or showers of affection to know my worth. And I don’t want it. This is the point in our lives where we work on ourselves. And you and me? We are going to be so beautifully fantastic.

Romance Myself Bath Spell

“To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance.” -Oscar Wilde

To enhance self-love/self-confidence, and just spoil yourself :)

What you need:

Pink Himalayan Salt- Self-love

Lavender Buds/Oil- Love, Happiness

Rose Petals/Oil- Self- love

Myrrh Incense- Self-love

Thyme- Confidence

Rosemary- Purification/ Self-Love

Vanilla oil- Love/Self-Love

Pink Spell Bag

4 Rose Quarts pieces/points

4 Pink Candles

(Optional) Pink or Rose Scented Bath Bomb/Bubblebath

What to do:

Add Lavender buds, rose petals, thyme, and rosemary to a pot of boiling water and boil for about 3-4 minutes, until you get a tea. Strain the herbs from the tea, and draw your bath while it cools, adding the pink himalayan salt to desolve. 

Put a rose quarts point in each corner of the tub with a pink candle. If you used oils and not hers, add them to your bath now, along with your bath bomb or bubblebath. If you made the tea, add it to the tub once it’s filled. Light your incense, pick some music that makes you feel relaxed and beautiful, and enjoy your bath. 

Think of the things you do not like about yourself, and find something beautiful about it. For example, if you can’t stand the color of your eyes, list all the things you find beautiful about that color and compare it to your eyes. Do this for at least 6 features/personality traits. 

When you are finished, drain the tub and remain in the water until it is completely drained, visualizing all the negative thoughts, insecurities, and self-doubt being sucked out of you and down the drain with the water. Visualize a light pink light glowing from within, replacing all of the departing negative views/emotions with love, confidence, kindness, and self-appreciation. 

And there you have it. I like to add some coconut oil to my bath for a little extra love boost and it makes my skin feel amazing. 

Hope this helps!
