How to Do a Complete Cleanse: Self-Care for Survivors

Why should you do a complete cleanse?

Sometimes negativity and toxic environments that come with narcissistic abuse can weigh you down so much that you must do a complete cleanse to shake them off.

Meditation, positive thinking, eating for health, and mantras are all helpful daily but may not be enough.

Even when you try to avoid toxic elements, you may end up dealing with them in the workplace or even with your toxic family.

A deep cleanse can help you shake off this toxic energy overall, leaving you looking and feeling your best.

  • Apples

How to Do an External Cleanse

An internal cleanse will help you remove the toxins you have ingested, but your mind and body may still feel weighed down by some of the negative energies you have absorbed over the course of the week.

A cleansing bath followed by meditation can help you get back on track and focus on your positive and healing energies.

How to Take a Cleansing Bath

When we talk about a “cleansing bath,” it’s about more than just washing the dust off for the day.

  • You’re going to focus on your mental and emotional energy as well.
  • Sage and salt are your go-to items for this remedy.
  • They don’t just work well for a bath cleanse, either.
  • You can use them to free your home from negative energies as well.

You can learn the specifics of different kinds of cleansing baths by reading about various cleansing baths, but the basics are below.

How to Use Sage for External/Bath Cleansing

  • Light up some sage, in some form. Even rubbed sage sprinkled on a tea light candle is better than nothing.
  • Sprinkle salt in your bathtub. Sea salt is best.
  • Run a hot bath. Soak in the bath and wash with the water in the tub, working from head to toe.
  • As you wash, imagine the negative energies from the day being washed from you. After the bath, run the shower and picture yourself rejuvenated by the fresh water as the tainted water runs down the drain.
  • Follow this up with an inspiring meditation. In the coming week, try to avoid negative people and energies to sustain a happy, healthy demeanor.

Enhance Energies with a Cleanse

Enhance Energies with a Cleanse

Most survivors appreciate the relaxation that comes with a hot bath. However, you may not be getting as much out of soaking in a hot tub as you could be.

Rather than just getting clean and relaxing your muscles, why not do a mental and emotional cleanse at the same time while also enhancing other energies?

Learn how to cleanse the body and mind while boosting energy and sex drive below.

 Basic Cleanse

A basic cleanse requires only sage and salt.

  • Sprinkle sea salt in your bathtub.
  • Light a sage wand or sprinkle some sage on a tea light candle and place it in the bathroom.
  • Combining these two things helps clear your negative energies as you wash them away from head to toe.
  • If you are experiencing a traumatic time, now is the perfect time to let those tears flow.
  • Have a good cry, wash the negativity away, and let it go down the drain with the bath water.

Cleanse to Boost General Energy

Sometimes the surrounding negativity can cause you to feel drained. In truth, the very elements and people who make you feel drained do so because they are taking some of your positive energy.

You can boost yourself by removing their negative effects through the basic cleanse and enhancing your own energy levels simultaneously with the help of some aromatherapy.

Recommended Aromatherapy Scents for Cleansing Baths

Below are some scents you can add to your bath water or bathroom to help regain your lost energy.

You might add these to your bath water, put a few drops of oil in potpourri, use potpourri alone, or any number of combinations. You might even simply use a lotion with these scents after your bath.

Cleanse to Boost Sexual Energy

If you feel a little less…lusty… for your partner than usual, a cleanse will help get you back to your foundation, assuming your partner isn’t a narcissist – in which case you have a whole other issue.

However, aromatherapy can go a long way toward increasing your sex drive in particular.

  • Add some essential oils to your cleansing bath, in the bathroom, or in the lotions you put on after a bath.
  • You can also use them in the bedroom, sprinkled on the bed, in a cotton ball next to the bed, or even a few drops on the pillow.

Recommended Essential Oils for Increasing Sex Drive and Sexuality

Below are some of the scents that promote an increased sex drive and sexuality in general.

As you can see, a couple of scents provide more than one type of energy boost. They also have other healing qualities outside of energy levels. These are the scents you should always have on hand if you want to let nature help you live a satisfying lifestyle in general.
