The Autumn season is in the air and the temperatures and leaves are beginning to fall as we prepare for Winter and the short days to come. Seasonally, this is the traditional time to remember our ancestors and our Loved Ones who have passed and despite it not being close to the two High Holy Days in November that marks this rite of passage for some, now is the time to prepare for it. Putting closure to Summer and cleansing ourselves in preparation for the Fall is ritualistic in events in many cultures. It makes the end of one period of Time and the beginning of another, so necessary in the Past when there were no clocks and calendars and the people of the Earth relied on Nature to send timing signs for action in One’s life.

Cleansing Ritual of the Autumn Season


Purpose: To remove and cleanse yourself and others of the remnants of the Summer. While the long nights and hot temperatures were fun, the time to concentrate on preparing for what’s to come is the focus of this cleansing ritual.


Primary Mixture:

1 cup Dr. Broner’s Liquid Castile Soap in Tea Tree Essence (found in Whole Foods or online)

1 cap (aka cake) Cascarilla, crushed to powder-like consistency (found in candle shops, botanicas, or online)

1 Cup Epsom Salts with Eucalyptus (found online or Walgreens has a great mixture)

Juice of one lemon


Secondary Mixture:

Brew Hyssop in a pasta or bean pot into a “tea” and let cool to room temperature. Hyssop can be found in natural grocery stores such as Whole Foods or online with various vendors.


How to Do It:

Take all ingredients and place in glass or ceramic bowl. Mix well. It will look a little dry and crumbly but that is ok. Step naked into shower to get wet, then turn water off. Dip a wash cloth into mix and rub your skin. Do not rub harshly or apply heavy pressure as you are rubbing. Do not use on face and genital areas. Rub mixture over body from top to bottom, all the while imagining that you are sloughing off old skin and old ways. As you do, be thankful for what the recent past has taught you and release all ill will and strife you have for others. Holding on to bitterness will not serve you coming into Winter, when we are to strip away harshness and be thankful for what we have been blessed with.

As this is done, pray the Act of Contrition:

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins because of thy just punishments, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, who art all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen.

Turn on water and rinse and repeat if necessary until you feel refreshed and cleansed.

Then, pour the Hyssop tea over your body and rinse with water until all is removed. Step out of shower, dry off and dress in comfortable clothes. You may feel relaxed and a bit drowsy after this, and it is fine to nap or rest with a cup of tea or other warm beverage at this time until you feel rejuvenated and ready to continue with your day.
