Bath in flower water for destress and happiness


Helloo. Its only one day to eve of Chinese New Year! Bet most of you have already start to eat your Ba Kwa and all the CNY goodies!! Hahahahaaa...but do control control...control....control your intake and do not drink too much cooling herbal tea. If you are weak heatiness, too much herbal tea will worsen your conditions and cause bad breath as well. So take note :)

According to our chinese traditions, these 2 days is the time to bath in flower water for good luck and wash away the whole year of unhappiness. My family followed this practice too. Although we are living in this new age world, I still strongly feel that certain Chinese traditions need to be followed so that our next generation will better appreciate and value the Lunar New Year.


Giving ourselves an aroma flower bath is also a kind of positive thinking process and telling ourselves "New year good fresh start". No religious element in it. Spa also using flower petals right? :D

On the eve of Lunar New Year, bath with 7 color flowers(EXCEPT WHITE COLOR) with 7 palmelo leaves. If you are unable to find the 7 colors flowers or do not have the time like me, simple use 5 elements oil. Add 1 drop in water and rinse your body.
