Going on a cleanse detoxifies your body; it is like hitting a reset button. Most people experience increased energy, clearer skin, and stronger immune function. There are also mental and emotional benefits to cleansing. These seven detox rituals to accompany your cleanse happen to be inspired by the seven chakras. They will boost the detoxification process and increase the benefits for your body, mind, and spirit.
1. Self-Massage for the Root Chakra
One of the things the Root Chakra is associated with is blood, and a warming self-massage is a great way to increase blood flow. It also calms the mind and helps you feel rooted and secure.
Warming Massage Oil
2 tablespoons sweet almond oil
4 drops orange essential oil
3 drops cedarwood essential oil
2 drops ginger essential oil
2. Epsom Salt Bath for the Sacral Chakra
The sacral chakra is associated with pleasure and taking care of yourself. Show your body some love by pampering yourself with a detox bath. It will relax your body and your mind. Adding oil to the bath as well will make it moisturizing.
Epsom Salt Bath
1-2 cups Epsom salt (for standard-sized bathtub)
Optional: 3 tablespoons of your favorite bath oil
Relax and stay in the bath for at least 12 minutes.
3. Setting Intentions for the Solar Plexus Chakra
A balanced Solar Plexus Chakra allows you to feel confident and face change. Tap into your sense of personal power and set an intention for your cleanse.
Ask yourself, “What do I want to experience, feel, and learn during this cleanse?”
4. Sun Salutations for the Heart Chakra
The Heart Chakra is associated with the heart, lungs, and circulation. Yoga connects your mind and body through the breath and develops a sense of peace, gratitude, and compassion. A series of sun salutations in particular will also stimulate circulation.
5. Journaling for the Throat Chakra
The throat chakra is the center of communication. Journaling gives you the opportunity to privately explore your thoughts and feelings. As you cleanse, you can also experience an emotional release in this way. Then with this increased clarity, you will better be able to speak your truth to others.
How willing am I to be honest with others?
What am I scared of when I think about allowing myself to be honest?
What advice would I give to a friend to get past that fear?
Are there boundaries I need to set in order to have healthier relationships?
6. Social Media Fast for the Third Eye Chakra
The Third Eye Chakra is the gateway to your intuition. Spend a day, a week, or even your entire cleanse fasting from social media to provide a mental clearing. When you are not constantly checking in on what others are doing, you can get in touch with yourself.
7. Dry Brushing for the Crown Chakra
The skin is associated with the Crown Chakra making dry brushing a great ritual to support it. Dry brushing aids in detoxification which is ideal during a cleanse. It can be quite a meditative experience as well leaving you feeling both blissed out and invigorated.
