3.- Lay in corpse pose and relax for about 10 to 15 minutes. Best not to overdo it, especially the first time, as you are testing the effect that this practice will have on you. Better to be gentle.
7.- Get dressed and take it easy. Just to give you an example, I am writing this post after taking the castor oil bath and I am feeling a mix of relaxation, a sense of wellbeing, and an urgent desire to lay down. As soon as I am done writing I will do just that. Be especially careful not to go under the sun after a practice, and if you live in an area with cold weather, dress warm. Drink plenty of water. One thing I have found comforting, especially in winter time is to have some freshly brewed ginger tea. Jessica Blanchard recommended it and it has worked wonders for me.
