It seems like everyone I know (including myself) is fighting off some sort of cold at the moment and I think one of the best things to help get you back on your feet and feeling your best is nice long soak in the tub.
Did you know that there are a million more options to enhance your bath time than just bubble bath, oils or bath bombs? Apart from rose petals, I never thought to add anything organic to my bath. In reality it’s a bit of a duh moment, we are always trying to detox and treat our bodies naturally so why not go straight back to the basics?
Enhance your me time with something you can’t find in the beauty aisle – add any of these to the hot water and enjoy.
Tea Bags – anti-aging properties that detox and balance the skin.
Honey – Softens and smooths the skin.
Jello Powder – Hydrates and soften the skin plus it smells amazing.
Milk – Soothes and calms irritated skin.
Olive Oil – Hydrates and strengths the skin’s outer layer, also great for anti-aging.
Salt – An anti-inflammatory that helps relieve pain.
Lavender – A great stress reliever that helps you wind down at the end of the day, is also great at soothing inflammation and muscle strains.
Lemon – Shrinks pores and helps to refresh and revive your body.
Ginger Root – Wonderful for cold and flu relief as well as relaxing muscles.
Baking Soda – Calms and soothes irritated skin.
Cinnamon – Great for treating rashes and detoxing the skin.
