The pressure and stress built into our daily lives often give us little time to relax and unwind. So, rather than rushing through another quick shower, take 20+minutes out of your day to soak in a warm bath.
You will be amazed at how much you can benefit from such a simple thing as a soak in the tub.
As your tense body slips into the tub, the sensuous water actually warms your body and relaxes the muscles.
Your body feels lighter.
The experience not only soothes physically but also mentally and provides a chance to take a real break and enjoy some much needed quiet time.
While some people like glittery bath bombs or fragrance oils, when I need to unwind and de-stress I prefer soaking my skin in natural ingredients.
The addition of botanicals and herbs to your bath is a simple pleasure that can be transformative.
Whether you call them bath teas, tub teas or bathing herbs, botanicals have been used in baths for thousands of years to relieve aches and pains, to fight colds, boost circulation, or energize or relax your mind and body.
Soaking in a warm fragrant herbal bath provides a quiet sanctuary in which to retreat, reflect and refresh.
The healing properties trapped in the herbs and released by the water can help boost your mood, calm the mind, soothe sore muscle and joints, opens pores, soften skin, and promote more restful sleep.
As the beneficial properties of the herbs are released into the water, a pleasant aroma fills the air which provides soul therapy, skin therapy, and aromatherapy all in one.
So, draw a warm bath infused with fragrant or therapeutic herbs, light a few natural candles, play soothing music and relax. It may just be the perfect medicine for whatever ails you! Next time: Which Herbs To Use…
