Brooklyn-based energetic healer Emily Mikaelah of Helios + Solene wants you to approach the spring equinox with good intentions. To make sure we step into the new season with our spirits and head held high, she paid us a visit to show us how to make our very own at-home ritual bath.

"Now is a really powerful time to do all sorts of rituals and meditative work," she says. The best part? You can add as much or as little ingredients as your heart desires.  

See how you can make your own ritual bath at home with Mikaelah's instruction, below, and find out more about offerings and events at Helios + Solene, here
