How to create your own detox bath

Carving out alone time to de-stress, unwind, and meditate in our busy schedule can be tough. Balancing family, work, and relationship obligations leaves little time to “indulge.” But allowing our bodies (and minds!) time to rest and rid themselves of toxins is essential to staying healthy.

Water is an essential element for physical and emotional wellbeing. The sensuous comfort water provides connects us back to our bodies, and sometimes, this simple pleasure is the perfect medicine for whatever ails us. Taking care of yourself should not be a challenge, but after a long day it can be hard to fit in one more thing — even if it is good for you. Herbal baths are...

Bathing and its mental health benefits

The older you get the more stressed you get. Whether it is from work, school, or the environment we live in. Every one of us gets stressed and from time to time, our mind needs a break from all of this. Some of will choose to go out for a vacation day to maybe remove the stress from our body. Others choose a spa day to detox your body from toxins. Unfortunately, not everyone can afford to take a whole day of break from everything. So why not just take a bath to help release the mental stress or negativity you have been absorbing all day? If you think that taking a bath will not help your mental health, well...
