This is a renowned feng shui cure for reviving and restoring personal Chi (energy). The number 9 in this recipe is what caught my eye. According to tradition, the number 9 symbolises power and will make the cure more potent, and, the oranges themselves are known for their reviving and purifying properties. I have to say this, "This works!" I found this in the book 'Spa' Glow Guide- Simple steps for health and well being by Andrea Mc Cloud.

Thank you for posting this healthy, refreshing bath recipe. A dear friend recently finished cancer treatments and she is very tired and lacking energy. I am going to prepare a gift basket of all the requirements for this bath, with the recipe, along with some wonderful body lotion to help her with her dry skin. I think she will love it. Might just add a chocolate or two for fun (she loves chocolate). Update: My friend loved her gift basket. She really enjoyed the refreshing bath treatment.
