Still searching for grounding modalities to stabilize yourself in 2021?
Find balance & stability in Vetiver
Vetiver is our most grounding and “down to earth” bath bomb. Vetiver essential oil comes from the unique roots of the Vetiver grass plant. Unlike most grass roots, Vetiver roots grow downward and help stabilize the soil. The Vetiver plant teaches us the valuable lesson of being grounded and stable within our surroundings, making it perfect for those who feel rootless or lost. This essential oil is also known to be an antioxidant and a fixative. We added Lemongrass essential oil to this bomb to balance the grounding effects of Vetiver by lifting the spirit. Lemongrass is also a grass plant known as a stimulating tonic, antiseptic, and antibacterial oil.
Sacral Chakra Flower Essences were added to the Vetiver bomb with the intention of balancing and removing any blockages from the Sacral Chakra. This Chakra is located at the center of your lower belly, and when it is imbalanced it can cause a loss of connection to our bodies and emotions. This essence combined with grounding Vetiver and uplifting Lemongrass is a wonderful combination to enhance feelings of connection and grounding within oneself.
On top of this bomb you'll notice a small glossy red or yellow stone- Mookaite Jasper is a supportive element that aids in stability and one's connection to the Earth, which makes it the perfect topping to this supportive bomb.
Lastly, beet root powder, another one of natures grounding roots, is what gives this bath bomb its beautiful bright red color, and boosts the scents of the essential oils. Although, this coloring wouldn't be complete without the crushed rose petals that unravel into your bath water and make you feel an even greater connection in the moment.
