Bathing in the moon is similar to lying in the sun. Under the moonlight, literally sit, lay down, or sprawl out in your favorite position. It can be done with or without clothing. In the moonlight, you can go for a stroll.

It’s essentially exposing yourself to moonlight purposefully — sometimes with an intention or ceremony, and sometimes just to drink up her light.

Moonbathing is utilized to calm the pitta dosha, the bio-energy that regulates metabolism and heat, in Ayurveda, the traditional Indian medical method and yoga’s sister science. It specifically aids in the cooling of any heat in the body, which can cause rashes, hives, and migraines. Anxiety and stress can be relieved by bathing in gentle light.

Moonbathing is said to be highly advantageous for women’s hormonal health, in addition to its overall health benefits. The moon is associated with the pituitary gland, which regulates follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone, according to medical astrology.

Moonbathing can thus help to balance these hormones, which both play a role in estrogen release. Moonbathing is also thought to aid in the relief of menopausal symptoms.

The new moon is a symbol of fresh starts, and the focus should be on introspection, setting new goals, and clearing mental space. The full moon, on the other hand, represents the culmination of energy and fruition, which calls for gratitude and celebration.

To take a moon bath, follow these steps:

1. Step one:

Fill a bath with bath salts on a waxing lunar day (our bodies are thought to be best at absorbing minerals during a full moon). Himalayan pink salts, which are known for their therapeutic powers, are a good choice.

2. Step two:

Turn off all artificial lighting and lamps. If you need more light, use candles.

3. Step three:

Stay hydrated by drinking antioxidant-rich rose tea or warm lemon water.

4. Step four:

Take three deep breaths before soaking for 30 minutes.
