Sometimes negativity and toxic environments can weigh you down so much that you have to do a complete cleanse to shake them off. Meditation, positive thinking, eating for health, and mantras are all helpful on a daily basis, but may not be enough. Even when you try to avoid toxic elements you may end up dealing with them in the work place or even with your family. A deep cleanse can help you shake off this toxic energy overall, leaving you looking and feeling your best.

 Internal Cleanse

A cleansing juice or smoothie can go a long way toward removing the toxins you have put into your body through the week. Add energy boosting foods like ginger and carrots if you feel like you need a boost as well as a cleanse. Below are some of the best foods to use in a juice or smoothie to cleanse the body.

  • Apples
  • Avocados
  • Beets
  • Blueberries
  • Cabbage
  • Celery
  • Celery Seeds
  • Flaxseed
  • Garlic
  • Grapefruit
  • Kale
  • Legumes
  • Seaweed
  • Watercress
  • Yogurt with live active yeast cultures

External

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.

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 you 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 this article about various cleansing baths, but the basics are below.

 

Light up some sage, in some form. Even rubbed sage sprinkled on a tea light candle is better than nothing. Sprinkle salt in your bath tub. Sea salt is best. Run a hot bath. Soak in the bath and wash yourself 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 in order to sustain a happy, healthy demeanor.

Enhance Energies with a Cleanse

Most women 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 bath tub. Light a sage wand or sprinkle some sage on a tea light candle and place it in the bathroom. The combination of these two things helps to 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 and then wash the negativity away and allow it to go down the drain with the bath water.

Boost General Energy

Sometimes the surrounding negativity can cause you to feel drained. In truth it is because the very elements and people who make you feel drained do so because they are taking some of your positive energy. You can give yourself a boost by removing their negative effects through the basic cleanse and enhancing your own energy levels at the same time with the help of some aromatherapy. Below are some of the scents that you can add to your bath water or bathroom to help regain your lost energy.

  • Peppermint
  • Rosemary
  • Cinnamon
  • Jasmine
  • Lemon
  • Lavender

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.

Boost Sexual Energy

If you are feeling a little less luster for your partner than usual, a cleanse will help get you back to your foundation. However, aromatherapy can go a long way toward increasing your sex drive in particular. Add some essential oils to your cleansing bath, in the bath room, or in 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. Below are some of the scents that promote an increased sex drive and sexuality in general.

  • Jasmine
  • Roses
  • Patchouli
  • Vanilla
  • Cedarwood
  • Chocolate
  • Bergamot
  • Cinnamon

As you can see, there are a couple of scents that 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.
