Healing baths are a great way to relax and take advantage of a stone's healing properties. Even a plain old rock is said to have some healing properties.
The water helps to enhance the stone's vibrations and this, in turn, will help you become more aware of your own energy. You should notice a new vitality to the water with you to place a rock or stone in the tub.
Sea salt for ten minutes is also considered a relaxing bath. The salt will help all the dead skin slough off and you will be renewed with only a smooth skin without the slippery oil. You can also add some lavender or flower essences to the bath as well for aroma.
Sometimes to get the full healing power of the stone, you can run the bath and let the stone stay in for a while before you get in the water. The energy is absorbed by the water and you will be quite refreshed when you get out.
You can also try holding the stone in the left hand and placing it under the water. You should feel the energy transmitting through the water and back to you.
The most favored stones to bathe with are Quartz crystals and Granite. You may also try Amethyst, Garnet, Citrine, Bloodstone, Agate, and Onyx. Place these in a mesh bag though, you don't want them to go down the drain.
You want to wash using a few stones in water as they can dissolve. These include Halite, Selenite, Gypsum, Talc, Calcite, and Alabaster.
You could also place the stone in your bubble bath and let it charge until you are ready to use it. Place smaller stones in the shampoo or body wash in the shower. You could place stones in your drinking water or in your hand soap. The possibilities are endless.
