The Fire Bath Rite is a cleansing bath taken to rekindle the body’s energy. Ignite a spark by bathing in hot water combined with heat-inducing organic ingredients can reduce feelings of negativity, boost immunity, deeply detoxify and leave a lasting glow - light the fire within. A traditional fire bath is with performed by heating the body near a controlled fire (fire is high in negative ions so sitting near the fire feels good as a serotonin boost and also helps heal skin) another type of traditional fire bath is placing a cast iron tub over a controlled fire - we are not recommending either form but similar effects can be achieved. Heating the body is a natural detoxifier and gives the feeling of a physical cleanse, an unburdening and an ardent energy. As you soak, imagine yourself looking up from an outdoor fire-heated bath to the bright night stars.
