Relax. In. Our. Deep. Soaking. Tub.
We think that treating yourself to a long bath in our deep soaking tub is the perfect recipe to completely relax and take the edge off.
There are many different types of baths to take. The list goes on and on and on some more. Staying true to our theme “staycation”, we have compiled a short list of our favorite FIVE to assist in your need to relax.
1: Epsom Salt Detox
Epsom salt is said to be able to help with the circulatory system as well as improving nerve functions. Taking a regular Epsom salt bath is a relatively easy and painless way to improve your health and well-being. My favorite is Lavender Salts!
2: Sea Salt Detox Bath
A salt bath is one of the oldest baths out there, and has been used for decades to help people relax. Some of the benefits reported from taking this bath: having more energy at the start of the day, not needing a caffeine jolt, and feeling better throughout the day.
3: Essential Oils Detox Bath
Let’s say you’re having a long day and you feel totally fatigued. There’s an essential oil for that and you’d want to choose peppermint for that bath. They have it all mapped out for you and have you covered whether you’re feeling stressed, depressed, worn out, or if you’re having a headache.
4: Apple Cider Vinegar Detox Bath
helps with conditions like arthritis and gout, as well as anything else caused by inflammation. This is a good bath to take if you feel you need to sweat the toxins out, and also if you want to make sure that you get to sleep without lying awake with a wandering mind.
5: Milk and Honey Baths
leave your skin supple and soft. The protein and fat content in themilk enriches your bath water and helps exfoliate the skin. The lactic acid present in the milk cleans the dead cells and hydrates the skin, thereby preventing dryness.
WHY should you soak? Google puts it this way: “A steamy bath could have a couple of health benefits similar to those produced by exercise, according to a recent study. Research published in the journal Temperature found that an hour-long soak in hot water produced similar anti-inflammatory and blood sugar responses as 60 minutes of moderate physical activity.”
What is the best thing to soak in for sore muscles?
For sore muscles and other aches and pains, pour about two cups of Epsom salt into warm bath water and soak for at least 10 minutes. The crystals will dissolve and relax aching muscles and ease swelling of minor strains, sprains and bruises, according to the care2 website. Mix with sea salt for extra soothing benefits.
So, when you get home tonight, run a hot bath and try out one of the above! I promise you won’t be disappointed with the results.
