We celebrate a period of death and rebirth this Easter time. We encourage kindness, good deeds and philanthropy, but this is also a time for you to remember to be kind to yourself and to rejuvenate your own body. And what is more rejuvenating than a bath soak? Here are some good ideas of soaking products that you may already have in your home. The amount you place in the water is always dependant on how high you fill your bath with water – in other words the dilution of the product. Work out your own required measurements for the best results.

  1. Epsom salts will help relieve pain in sore muscles and joints as the nutrients break down the build up of lactic acid, which causes pain. Soaking in a bath of Epsom salts will also help reduce muscle inflammation. 2 cups is the Average to use.
  2. Lavender has very strong relaxation properties from stress and tension build up during the day. You can use lavender oil or dried lavender. Just don’t fall asleep in the bath.
  3. Baking soda has great calming and soothing properties for an irritated skin and therefore ideal if you are prone to skin irritations or skin allergies.
  4. Honey will sooth and moisturize dry skin. Honey has been used as a topical healing agent for ages. The natural anti-oxidants found in honey will also act as a great detoxification for your body.
  5. Milk contains lactic acid, which is packed with skin softening properties. It will make your skin feel smoother and more resilient. The lactic acid in milk acts similarly to the alpha hydroxyl acids found in expensive skin creams. It dissolves proteins that bind dead skin cells together.  Milk baths are also great for soothing burns and skin after spending too much time in the sun! Milk powder is the better option.
  6. Ginger is excellent if you have a cold or flu as the natural anti bacterial properties in ginger will help sweat out colds, flues, and congestion. Ginger raises the temperature of your skin. Use fresh chopped ginger by the tablespoon.
  7. Green Tea contains minerals that are well known for their powerful anti-aging benefits, which will replenish & restore balance to your skin.  Green tea also has natural antioxidants, for detoxification from natural pollutants. 10 Teabags should suffice.
  8. Lemon baths are especially refreshing in hot weather.  The healing agents in lemons will refresh tired skin.  Lemons will also cool the skin, and help tighten large pores! 6 Freshly cut lemons or lemon juice may be used.
  9. Cinnamon has been used for centuries as spiritual purification in many cultural traditions.  The natural properties in cinnamon will remove toxins from the body (especially after an illness).  It also acts as a natural disinfectant & astringent, helping to cleanse the body. Cinnamon baths will invigorate the spirit and elevate your mood and it will help raise your body temperature on a cool day! You can drop 4 sticks or use the powder as preferred.
  10. Jelly will not only make your skin smell delicious, it can work miracles on dry skin. Our mood can be lifted when we inhale fruity scents like watermelon and peach, this is due to an endorphin-dopamine reaction.  Since scent reactions are personal, have fun experimenting with different flavours to find your mood elevating scent! Half to 1 sachet should do the trick.
