Are Baths the Ultimate Self-Care?
We’re always on the move nowadays, including when it comes to bathing. While most of us are inclined to take a shower because it’s quick and easy, did you know that taking baths every once and a while could improve your overall well-being?
Taking a nice, hot bubble bath is the perfect way to unwind and relax after a long day but here are some of the other reasons it’s important to treat yourself to a bath!
There are so many things you can add to your bath that can help your skin! Whether you’re struggling with eczema or psoriasis adding something like oatmeal to your bath can help soothe all the redness and inflammation happening to your skin. Submerging yourself in that warm relaxing water also can help you feel some relief from the itchiness and soreness that comes from skin conditions. Just be sure to moisturize after to lock in all those healing ingredients you just soaked in!
Taking baths at night with the relaxing scents of eucalyptus and lavender can help you have a better nights sleep! Try using our serene lavender CBD bath bomb and see for yourself! Using scented oils in your bath water can relax and calm your mind before you get ready for bed. That means those racing late-night thoughts can be a thing of the past.
Taking a bath after exercise can also help heal those sore muscles. Warm water and some Epsom salts not only make for a relaxing bath, but together they can help your muscles too! Another benefit of post-workout bathing is it can help you to continue to burn calories! Sitting in the heated water also can help regulate your blood sugar.
Time for more bubble baths!
Taking showers may technically get your cleaner but don’t let that stop you from taking a bath every now and again! Light some candles (may we recommend our Enchanted Bloom Hemp Candle, put on your favorite relaxing playlist and float away!
