The power of bathing not only cleans but relaxes the body, and creates a sense of peace within the soul. Bathing helps relax tense muscles, opens pores, softens the skin, detoxifies the body, boosts the immune system and promotes sleep.

We can patronize spas and hot springs, but when we need to immediately restore ourselves the bathtub is usually a few steps away. We may be so tired when evening arrives that we don’t even have the energy to wait for a tub to fill up. But there’s good news, once you are in the tub with a few drops of essential oils and a scoop of salts you’ll be hooked. All you need is up to 20 minutes of soaking and you will emerge ready for a good night’s sleep.  

Before you get in the bath leave electronic devices in the other room, make a cup of organic tea, burn a soy candle, play calm music and make sure your bathroom has been decorated in relaxing colors. Go ahead, make a home spa appointment with yourself!
