So here, you come home from work, shopping, errand runs exhausted, stressed, and tired. What is the first thing on your mind, a quick shower, or a long, hot, relaxing bath with a glass of bubbly?
For some a quick shower works wonders and for others the long, hot, and relaxing bath with a glass of bubbly will do wonders. Basically, it boils down to the individual’s preferences and what individuals find as relaxing or stimulating.
Bathing has been around for centuries. History states that people bathed on Sundays which is considered a day of rest and washed their hands before meals way back then.
If you are a person who enjoys the bath, then do not forget to add the bath salts, or bubble bath as they are often times aromatic, healing and promotes relaxation and often times just takes the stress away and your mind begins to let go of its thoughts while the bathtub is filling with water.
Bath salts are known to open pores, make skin silky and soft, and purify the skin. This is a great benefit in helping to care for a person’s skin, especially all of the skin and not just the face.
If a person suffers with dry skin, eczema, athlete’s foot or insect bites a bath can help to ease the suffering. This is how a bath can help to heal a person. A bath is also very soothing to persons suffering with arthritis.
When bathing it becomes a time of calm. Bathing soothes the soul, relaxes the mind, whereas a shower stimulates instead of relaxing some persons.
Now picture this, a tub filling with water, the smell of aromatic bath salts, candles lit, soothing music, a bath pillow, a good book, and a glass of bubbly. Does this not make you want to jump in a long, hot, relaxing bath compared to a shower?
