What is it about lying in a pool of water that is so relaxing? On a hot summer day – to just float on a body of water sounds just as good as being oil massaged by your celebrity crush. Come winter a hot relaxing bath is literally the only savior to frost blasted cheeks. Research from the journal Complementary Therapies in Medicine found that soaking in warm water daily for 8 weeks is more effective at easing anxiety than a prescription drug.. so may be we should talk about what else a magical tub of water can do.
Soothe skin irritations.
Skin acting up? Eczema prone? Psoriasis itch? Dunk yourself in a warm bath and drop a skin loving bath bomb made of collateral oatmeal like Milk’n Honey by Good Common Sense, made with real milk and essential oils its great for calming skin. Its suggested for those with skin irritations that even though baths are soothing one shouldn’t stay in the bath longer than 15-30 minutes at a time. Exfoliating during an outbreak is highly discouraged until your skin has recovered.
Blast away the sniffles.
Whether its allergies or a cold on its way to ruin your week theres a bath bomb for that! Steam them away with eucalyptus and rosemary essential oils. Not a bath person? Try Shower Tablets! Shower with the effects of aromatherapy plus the fend off the stuffy nose.
Seriously scientifically proven that laying in a tub will make you happy! In 2002 a University of Wolverhampton study found that by taking a daily bath, the mood and energy levels in the participants were higher and improved! Makes perfect sense since we lay down to sleep and our bodies naturally associate laying down with rest and recuperation so kick those feet up and lay down in your tub as long as you need!
Soak pain away.
A hot bath acts like a heating pad for all over helping your body block pain. Did you just do a work out? Lactic acid in your muscles need to drain hop in a cold bath to constrict your blood vessels and let your body recirculate.
Its obvious why a bath is so great with its wonderful health benefits and well… duh! Its so relaxing! However you want to relax remember to be safe getting in and out of your tub! Grab a towel its time to relax! Ciao
