Mercury + Jupiter in Aquarius
The 6 of Swords bath bomb was made while Mercury was in the middle decan of Aquarius, which is ruled by Mercury.
Mercury at this stage was moving forward very slowly and applying to a conjunction with benevolent Jupiter. The two are exploring themes of belonging, belief, and community. Mercury helps us examine our previously held beliefs to see how they fit with the vision of what we want to create for ourselves.
In this space we can explore Saturn themes about boundaries and limits as well. We are both outside the limits of the known universe and within the bounds of what we’re able to imagine (although these edges can be stretched). This is the intuition of the intellect, fueling scientific discovery via the power of the creative unconscious.
This Lord of Science bath bomb facilitates mental processing, healing, rest, and recovery. It gives one space to breathe and safe haven to sit with their thoughts, ideas, beliefs, and memories. The effect is both refreshing and deeply relaxing, gently opening the mind and calming the nerves. This is a great ritual bath to follow up with a deep journaling session.
This 6 of Swords bath bomb is made with pure Rosemary and Lavender essential oils and topped with dried Red Clover and Lavender. Rosemary for the Swords element, conjuring up memories and alerting us to ideas and insights into our beliefs. Lavender for soothing the mind and relaxing the nerves, allowing space for mental processing and healing to occur. Red Clover is used to invoke Mercury, good luck, success, exorcism (of false belief, negativity), protection. Red Clover also echoes the position of Mercury and Jupiter in the Second House, aiding financial matters and focusing on the issue of Values — both of a material and immaterial nature. Mercury-Jupiter in the 2nd benefits commerce, trade, and communicating big ideas.
The mini 6 of Swords bath bomb is 4 ounces whereas the large bath bombs are 8 ounces.
Ingredients: Baking Soda, Citric Acid, SLSA, Apricot Kernel Oil, Rosemary Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Polysorbate-80, Coco Betaine, Water, Wilton Color Right Concentrated Food Dye, Dried Red Clovers, Dried Lavender
Safety Information: It’s best to use caution when bathing with essential oils. I dilute my essential oils in apricot oil and use polysorbate-80 to help them disperse properly in the bath. You can do a skin patch test to check for allergic reaction before using the bath bomb. Gently scratch a bit of powder off and place on a small patch of skin, such as the inner elbow. Smudge a little water on to make the blend stay in place, then cover with a bandaid. Check in 24 hours. Use caution especially around children and during pregnancy.
