5 things you need to know about bath soaks
So you're planning this awesome bath time, right? And you're grabbing some of you favorite bath products, and you realized- damn, what are the benefits of a bath soak?
Well, think no more. We got you. Whether it's salts or just how long is too long, we'll cover that here.
- muscle pain and stiffness
- stiff, aching joints
- circulation problems
- anxiety and stress
- skin conditions, such as eczema
- dry and itchy skin
Soaking is an awesome way to unwind from the day or just life. Bath salts or a soak can relieve pain, soften the skin and even loosen your joints. Epsom salt is a beautiful mineral that should be used in almost every soak especially to target the points mentioned above
Bath soaks are made to relax, but we don't want you to fall asleep. 12 minutes at minimum and 45 minutes max. Plus, nobody like pruny skin (hahahahaha)
Herbs and stuff
Herbs are a great way to decorate the tub but also add plenty of health benefits. Applying to bath water while its running hot and then soaking could have you leaving the tub a new person. Many herbs have antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, soothing, and anti-aging affects and most carry an aromatic scent that will enhance the bath experience.
When you allow yourself to just think, it's a wonderful thing. It's not like you have a lot to do once you're soaking in a tub. If you day went down the drain-- that would be a great time to sit down and do an internal inventory and reset. Tip: Try adding your favorite music to the ritual, "Alexa, play 90's R&B" is my go to!
For centuries, bath soaks were an essential part of cleaning and still is! Yes, showers have made life so convenient but when you prepare a bath with essential oils, herbs and other healing properties you wanna suck all that in. Plus open pores makes for better cleaning.
Ready for a soak? Try some bath salts, or shower gels. Ohhh or maybe some scrubs!
