Of all the ways to treat your body well, a warm bath is among the easiest and most beneficial.
In addition to soothing tired, achy muscles, it can also help cure bouts of insomnia by relaxing you and raising your body temperature. Once you slip between the cool sheets of your bed, your body starts producing melatonin, which invites sleep.
A warm bath is a way to treat yourself well. Add a comfortable bath pillow, some luxurious bubble bath, soft music, and a good book for a relaxing retreat where the troubles of the world melt away. Water has a therapeutic quality to it and provides relief for a number of different health conditions including the common cold.
Hot water opens stuffy nasal passages and loosens tight muscles. Relaxing fully releases endorphins in the brain, which relieves the intensity of the pain you feel. If you add a few drops of essential oil to your bath, you benefit from the brain-boosting and stress-relieving qualities of sage, bergamot, and lavender.
Bathing in oils helps moisturize skin. It sloughs off dead cells, which often cause redness, dryness, and itchiness. Using a good moisturizer following a warm bath prevents skin from drying out further and causing discomfort.
The next time you want to treat yourself good, draw a warm bath, add some bubbles, and soak until your heart's content. Castle Rock Essentials' Bath Gift Set comes with an organic Blackberry Sage soap bar, bubble bath, and sugar scrub. It also has a comfortable, waterproof foam bath pillow.
