Once upon a time bathing was a weekly ritual that people took hours out of their day for. It was about more than just hygiene, bathing was considered a religious experience and one that cleansed the mind, body and soul.
These days we’ve replaced a weekly bath with a daily shower and while we’re very much relieved that washing has become a daily ritual, it is certainly a shame that so many people are missing out on the health benefits of a good, long bath.
Let us remind you of some of the benefits of the bathing and show you how to get the most out of your time in the tub…
1. Muscle Relaxion
Whether you’re sitting at a desk all day or you’re an athlete, the deep muscle relaxation that takes place when you’re in a bath is extremely beneficial. You will find yourself with better posture, less aches and cramps and more able to perform during workouts.
Need an extra boost? Our Aromatic Moor combines Natural Black Moor and Pine Essential Oil to alleviate aches, pains and fatigue.
2. Stress Relief
There’s not that much you can do in a bath. Leave your phone behind and take time out from your busy schedule to forget about the stresses of day-to-day life. If you really can’t switch off, take a magazine or book in with you to distract yourself.
Embrace the powers of aromatherapy by throwing some Mystique Escape Bath Salts into the water and switch off from the world for a while. Rinse away the stress with our Anti Stress Bath and Shower Gel which can be used every day in the shower to ward off anxiety.
Hot baths help your body perspire and draw out toxins in the body. The warmth also increases circulation of the lymph system which helps to clear the system of toxins and create a free-flowing system to improve overall health. Our Aromatic Moor aids in this detoxifying process.
4. Reveal Silky Smooth Skin
A good soak helps to rid yourself of dead skin cells to reveal silky smooth skin. Massage our Silky Skin Body Scrub into your body to smooth, soften and activate blood circulation.
After you leave the bath and pat yourself dry, spray Dry Oil Body Moisturiser all over your body and massage gently until absorbed. Your skin will feel cashmere smooth!
