You hold back the tears when you see your significant other, knowing that you just can’t express your deepest sorrows. You wish you felt more feminine, soft, and gentle. You crave to feel the love of your friends and family within your soul. You’re tired of the days of shrugging off the compliments and praise.
You’re ready to feel. You’re ready to connect. You’re ready to unleash your inner goddess.
When we are not feeling connected with ourselves, it is impossible to connect with others. In order to share love with our friends and family, we have to make it a consistent practice to show love to ourselves. However, when life leaves you stressed and overwhelmed, it becomes far too easy to lose that intimate space of love and acceptance within ourselves. We begin to blame ourselves and beat ourselves up. However, this only makes things worse. The further we step out of love with oursleves, the less likely we are to be able to experience the love and joy in our life.
The following is a simple process you can use whenever you need to amp up your self-love. It will help you unleash your love, feel loved, and truly connect with your friends and family. This is a process that is most effective if repeated in consecutive days.
The Luxury Bath
What you need:
- 6 roses – 2 red, 2 pink, and 2 white
- A candle that calls to you (something pretty or with a beautiful fragrance)
Your favorite tea
It’s important that these items are purchased new, specifically for this purpose.
- Make yourself a hot cup of your favourite tea.
- Draw yourself a hot bath with one cup of Epsom salts (bubble bath optional).
- Light your candle, put the petals of ONE of the red roses into the bath while it’s filling
- Relax in the bath while you drink your tea and allow yourself to play with the rose petals
- Place the rose petals one by one over your heart
- Take 11 deep breaths, inhaling through your nose, and exhaling through your mouth
- Sink into the bath and allow the rose petals to float on.
Day Two: Repeat this process above, using the other red rose
Day Three: Use one Pink rose for your Luxury Bath
Day Four: You guessed it. Use that other pink rose
Day Five: Surprise! Use one white rose
Day Six: Use your single last white rose for your Luxury Bath
Want to power up the practice? Add a Rose Quartz crystal into the bath or Therapeutic Grade essential oils (such as doTERRA’s Balance, geranium, Lavender, or serenity) to your wrists.

Add varying flowers, crystals, essential oils, or music. Allow yourself the pleasure of taking a luxury bath every week and notice how grateful you feel.
