5 Therapeutic Bath Ideas

Adding a few simple ingredients to your basic bath can transform it into an instantly therapeutic, healing phenomenon. Try these 5 therapeutic bath ideas and enjoy an amazing bath experience.

Milk and Honey: Do you want smooth, nourished skin with an even tone? Try adding powdered milk and honey to your bath. Add two tbsp. of powdered milk and 1 tbsp. of honey to your bath water. Let them soak 10 minutes before getting into the bath. The lactic acid in milk will make your skin baby-soft and will improve your complexion. The honey will hydrate your skin and keep it supple.

Ginger: Ginger is anti-bacterial and thus is very beneficial when added to your bath. You simply add one tbsp. of freshly chopped ginger to the bath water. A ginger bath will eliminate toxins by making you sweat a lot, and will enhance blood circulation. It may help reduce joint pain, too. Make sure you drink a lot of water after your bath because you will lose hydration due to sweating.

Olive oil: Fed up with dry skin? Don’t fret! Simply mix one tbsp. of olive oil in your bath and enjoy a relaxing spa experience at home. An olive oil bath will make your hands, feet, legs, and whole body silky smooth and instantly hydrated. You won’t even feel the need to apply moisturizer. It will help restore dry cracked feet and you won’t experience flaky skin after an olive oil bath.

Green Tea: Out of many herbal bath choices, green tea is considered the best because it’s known for its powerful antioxidant and detoxification properties. Place 2 or 3  green tea bags in hot water and allow them to steep for 15 to 20 minutes before adding them to your bath water. The green tea bath will relieve body pains, soothe sore muscles, and eliminate toxins. In addition, it smooths the skin.

Epsom Salt: Epsom salt can provide your body with many benefits when added to a tub of hot water. Add one or two cups to your bath water making sure the salt is completely dissolved. The salt bath will flush out toxins from your body, relieve stress and constipation, and make your muscles work properly. Epsom salt has high levels of magnesium and sulfur which are easily absorbed by the skin.
