There are few experiences that compare to a relaxing and detoxing bath after a long day. As you slip your feet into the hot water and lay your head back, that moment is what can fade the stress away. One of the best parts of a bath is the variety. Here are the things you should add to your bath water.
Noted as one of the most soothing herbs, lavender would be the perfect choice to wind down and ensure a good night sleep. Dried lavender or lavender essential oil can be used in your next soak.
Coconut oil is one of the best bath ingredients for soft skin! Mix a tablespoon of coconut oil—which has anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, anti-parasitic and anti-fungal properties—into running water to moisturize and soften.
Mustard and baking soda
Combine 1/4 cup mustard bath with one cup of baking soda to balance your skin’s pH and draw out toxins. This bath is an anti-inflammatory treatment for sore muscles or achy joints. While baking soda soothes dry, itchy skin the mustard bath creates a warming ‘icy hot’ effect with cooling essential oils like eucalyptus and thyme that help relax tight muscles and promote internal healing.
Moisturizing, anti-ageing, and antibacterial, honey is a powerhouse for our skin! This honey bubble bath recipe is just the ticket if you need some extra bubbles.
They aren’t just sweet to smell and equally decadent, but rose petals and rose water are also antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and moisturizing. Try a rose milk bath next time if you need a little indulgence.
