"Sacred bathing brings the ancient tradition of meditation and prayer into the modern day ritual practice of a home bath, so that you can connect to Spirit daily and purify your energy."—Dr. Larry Dossey, author of One Mind and The Science of Premonitions

Immerse Yourself in Healing Waters for Relaxation, Clarity, and Wholeness

Gain inspiration and rejuvenation through the sacred act of bathing. With fifty-two bath recipes, one for every week of the year, The Book of Sacred Baths shows you how to use this relaxing practice to improve your love life, succeed in your career, strengthen your health, and transform your spirit.

Each recipe is tailored to a specific emotional or spiritual need, from stress relief to divine assistance to self-connection for overall well-being. Using essential oils, candles, and color therapy along with visualization and ritual practice, you'll raise your vibration and release negative energy down the drain.


"Fans of Sherman are in for an impressive treat with her collection of 52 fun and sacred baths to improve every aspect of your physical and spiritual life."—Publishers Weekly

"A sacred bathing of the body ultimately becomes a sacred bathing of the mind, spirit, and soul, which unearths a mindfulness of self-nourishment that we might then gift as kindness to others as we go about our day."—Cathie Borrie, author of The Long Hello

"I highly recommend this beautiful book of spiritual bathing for inner joy and healing."—Raven Keyes, author of The Healing Power of Reiki and The Healing Light of Angels
