30 Jan Romance Rituals
A Ritual is a way of expressing gratitude for what we have and honoring it with our special attention. On Valentine’s Day (or any day!) take the opportunity to express gratitude for the loving partner in your life!
Incorporate all or any part of the Loving Bath Ritual or Loving Foot Bath Ritual to create a personal gift for your loved one. For either Ritual you might also consider including:
- A Bubbly Bottle of Champagne
- Succulent Chocolates
- Beautiful Red Roses
PREPARATION FOR BOTH RITUALS
Chill that champagne, put the chocolates on a beautiful dish and heat a TARA Herbal-Ease™ Neck Pillow in your microwave.
Create a romantic ambience by selecting a quiet, warm and private space. Dim the lights and/or light some candles and put on music that will set the mood for romance. Add TARA Loving Bath & Diffuser Oil to an aromatherapy diffuser or light one lamp and put a few drops on the light bulb.
Change into your robes. Have your partner relax on a bed or a comfortable chair and place the warm Neck Pillow around their neck. Sit next to your partner and place a TARA Herbal-Ease™ Eye Pillow over your eyes. Relax for 10 minutes. Feel each other breathe. Feel your heart connection.
LOVING BATH RITUAL
While your partner continues to relax, draw a bath adding 2 TBSP. of TARA Loving Bath Salts and 18 drops of Loving Bath & Diffuser Oil. Bring some candles into the bathroom and dim the lights. Make sure the room is warm. If you bought roses, when the bath is drawn, sprinkle some rose petals on the surface. Bring your partner into the bath. Add some Loving Bath & Diffuser Oil to the fingertips of your hands and massage onto their temples. Have your partner do the same for you. Remove your robes, join hands and help each other into the bath to enjoy a loving soak.
After the bath, towel each other off and then gently apply TARA Loving Body & Massage Oil to your partner’s body. Have your partner do the same for you. Don your robes and return to your room.
LOVING FOOT BATH RITUAL
This ritual is totally about giving to your partner. Cleansing the feet of a friend or loved one is a sign of trust, intimacy and openness.
After you’ve enjoyed your preparation together, tell your partner to continue to relax while you prepare the next step of their Valentine gift.
Remove the Neck Pillow from their neck and reheat in the microwave. Fill a large bowl or small tub with warm water. Add 2 TBSP. of TARA Rejuvenating Foot Soak & Scrub and 10 drops of Loving Bath & Diffuser Oil. Place a large towel on the floor in front of a chair in your Ritual Room and set the foot bath on the towel. In a small dish mix 1 TBSP. Rejuvenating Foot Soak & Scrub, 1 TBSP. Loving Bath & Diffuser Oil and 1 TBSP. water and place the dish on the towel next to the foot bath.
Have your partner sit in the chair and place the warm Neck Pillow around their neck. Add some Loving Bath & Diffuser Oil to the fingertips of your hands and massage onto their temples. Have them test the water in the foot bath for temperature and then immerse their feet. While they enjoy their soak for 10 minutes, sit next to your partner and again relax with a Eye Pillow.
Remove one foot from the footbath and wash with the prepared scrub. Put their foot back into the tub and rinse then have them put their foot on the bath towel. Dry their foot and then cover with the end of the bath towel. Repeat on the other foot. Remove the foot bath and scrub dish, uncover one foot at a time and massage with TARA Loving Body & Massage Oil or TARA Loving Lotion.
Now…enjoy that champagne and those chocolates and see where this romantic ritual leads!
