Ritual Foot Cleansing Kit
Ritual Foot Cleansing
For thousands of years ritual foot cleansing has been a part of our lives in many different cultures. It is believed that ritual foot cleansing was originally an act of hospitality in Palestinian homes performed for guests by a servant or wife of the host. As part of religious culture many view foot cleansing as an act of religious devotion to cleanse, purify and sanctify a person before entering sacred spaces and in the Bible we see that Jesus practiced this same ritual by washing the feet of His disciples before the Passover (John 13:12-15: ‘When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. 13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.’)
Our feet bear our weight, give us balance and connect us to the earth so we give gratitude and honor the work they do through this practice. The cleansing and care for another person’s feet brings an intimate connection between two people. As with all rituals and ceremonies it is important that this be accompanied by prayer, intentionality and ritual action making this a beautiful experience. Angels & Co. Skin Care has created this package to assist in making your experience meaningful and beautiful. We have included powerful crystals for grounding and purifying that can be placed in the bottom of your wash basin, a salt mixture to sprinkle into your warm water bath, an organic loofah sponge for exfoliation, an organic sugar scrub for buffing, and finally our popular Nourishing Body lotion to moisturize. We also offer to you this prayer you can use as guidance to set your intention:
“We are present in this moment to honor the parts of our bodies that root us firmly to the Earth. We give gratitude to our bodies for bearing our weight and bringing us balance and support. May this act of cleansing serve to wash away all that no longer serves our highest good, so we are free to step forward on our life’s journey in a positive, impactful way. May every step we take from here lead us along the Divine path to our highest good.”
