Updated: May 16


Do you own a bath tub and never use it ? If you answered yes to this, you're one of the many who are missing out on the therapeutic benefits that the humble bath has to offer.

This article just may convince you to use it more it frequently.

When you immerse yourself in a bath you are giving yourself hydrotherapy "water therapy." Here are the benefits of the humble bath:


BATHS:

Boost the immune system so you can coast through the end of flu season unscathed. An increase in body temperature makes the body an inhospitable host for germs, reducing the risk of infection and illness.


Improve quality of sleep, which is essential when it comes to achieving peak health. When your body temperature decreases after a hot bath, it strengthens your circadian rhythm and helps you to drift off more quickly and easily.


Foster weight loss without working out. (Really.) A hot bath stimulates circulation and helps pump oxygen-rich blood throughout the body. This regulates insulin and mimics the effects of exercise. Better circulation also aids in lowering high blood pressure and improves diabetes while nourishing the organs and flushing toxins from the body.


Are relaxing. Obviously. And we could all benefit from more relaxation. Lower stress levels result in lower rates of illness, both major and minor.

Alleviate aches and pains and aid in recovery from injury, long after you emerge from the hot water.


Facilitate mineral absorption by the body, improve deficiencies, and help to heal skin wounds and diseases like dermatitis and psoriasis.


Cleanses the body of negative energies by cleansing your Aura.


 SET THE TONE:


 Avoid using your Phone

Unless it's for music only No Social Media Scrolling

Totally switch off to the outside world. Mood Lighting Dim the lights and close the door to the outside world.

Light a candle or two.

Props A bath tray holds a glass of water or cup of herbal tea and candle or two nicely. A bath pillow or plush towel rolled behind your neck helps to create a spa-like experience.

Your favourite music to bliss out to. Salt + Soda Bath Two nights a week add 250g of Pink Himalayan Salt and 250g of Baking Soda to your bath. Sea salt is full of minerals like potassium, which balances moisture in the skin, and sulphur, a powerful agent that helps rid the body of toxins. Baking soda assists in detoxification, alkalises the body, and softens the skin.

For aches and pains add 250g of Epson Salts to your bath and soak yourself in a warm to hot bath for 20 min. The Magnesium sulphate in the Epsom salts will relax the muscles and will speed up recovery of aching and tired muscles.


Make a date with yourself to soak yourself in your bath and melt away your stresses, and just be.. You are worth it !!

Enjoy !!
