These beautiful bath salts were created by Lauren of Moonseed Rituals to assist you in your Winter Solstice and Yule celebrations regardless of how big or small they are.

The base of these salts is a mix of epsom salts and essential oils that aid in soothing the skin and relaxation.  Blended throughout the bath salts are dried juniper berries, mistletoe and rosemary with an added aromatherapy blend of juniper, cedarwood, lavender and pine. The scent is sharp and clean, reminiscent of a day wandering around the woods searching for the perfect Yule log and gathering armfuls of evergreens to decorate the home.

The Pagan celebration of Winter Solstice (also known as Yule) is one of the oldest winter celebrations in the world. Humans may have observed the winter solstice as early as the neolithic period as it is the one day of the year where we have the fewest hours of daylight. During the winter solstice the darkness has reached its peak and therefore we must reach into that darkness in order to discover the light again.

On the solstice, Celtic priests would cut the mistletoe that grew on the oak tree and give it as a blessing. Oaks were seen as sacred and the winter fruit of the mistletoe was a symbol of life in the dark winter months.

Ingredients: Magnesium sulfate, juniperus berry dried, Salvia Rosmarinus, viscum album, Cedrus atlantica oil, Juniperus communis oil, Lavandula angustifolia oil, Pinus Sylvestris oil, Limonene, Linalol. (naturally occurring in essential oils).

The ritual:

Run a bath, light a few candles and play some music. Once the bath is full you can either sprinkle the desired amount of the bath ritual directly into the water or if you would like a cleaner option, fill the little cotton bag that comes with every bottle and submerge it into the water.

This ritual can still be used even if you don’t have a bath. Foot soaks are incredibly beneficial and relaxing and all you need to do is pour a handful of the bath ritual into a bowl of warm water and soak your feet for at least 10 minutes.
