People have been using baths as more than a means to clean themselves for thousands of years – ancient societies built social hangouts around bathhouses, where they believed the water purified and cleansed the body of toxins. There’s no doubt that soaking in a warm fragrant herbal bath provides you with the sanctuary you need to retreat from the everyday mania of today, whereby you can relax and reflect in peace.
These societies added herbs into their bathing formulas to help boost one’s mood, calm the mind, and soothe sore muscles and joints after a long day outside. These baths were also said to promote more restful sleep, open pores, and softer skin.
Sounds good, right? Here are 4 reasons we recommend you make herbal bath soaks part of your everyday routine:
Calms Your State of Being:
Did you know that pain and inflammation in the nervous system can cause both stress and anxiety in your body? Running a hot bath, otherwise known as hydrotherapy, can calm these feelings of stress and anxiety, as well as alleviate any nerve or back pain from the pressure of the warm water. As a result, you’ll be in a better mood once you get out of the tub.
Soothes Aching Muscles:
Whether you’re sore from a workout, or you recently pulled a muscle at work, a hot bath acts as a warm compress, raising the temperature of the muscle while blocking the pain sensors that are causing you discomfort. Consequently, you can finally relax and feel at peace, removed from the pain that might be irritating you on a daily basis.
Creates Gorgeously Smooth Skin:
Taking an herbal bath with an herbal bath soak can moisturize your skin while opening up your pores as you sit in the water. ASE Naturals bath soaks are infused with herbs and different salts, which means that you will experience a sense of calming and relaxation as this soak also rejuvenates your skin cells and delivers hydration to your body.
Purifies Your Body:
Certain bath soaks are made with cleansing in mind, using ingredients like salt and flower extracts to not only clean your skin, but also pull out toxins that are building up in your body. The Cleanse Bath Soak is made with lavender flowers, three salt varieties, sage, rosemary, and peppermint leaves that work together to cleanse your aura, while the Epsom salt aids in the calming of muscles and removal of toxins in your skin.
