Inside Information: How A Bubble Bath Can Help With Stress & Detox
It’s January, and we’re having our annual New Year’s Deodorant Detox. Part of our Detox Kit includes an EO Bubble Bath and an EO Bath Salt Soak. We’re going to take a closer look at how that can help with your new year’s stress – whether its from detoxing your deodorant ritual or just starting a new year.
Hot Water Is Good Medicine
Hot baths have been prescribed for their health benefits for centuries, and if you’re interested in the history of bathing you can check out our blog, A History of Bathing.
Modern studies have also shown that hot water baths lowered blood pressure, heart rate, and cortisol levels. In other words, taking a hot bath can help reduce stress physiologically.
As we mentioned in our blog, Why 30 Days To Switch To Natural Deodorant?, reducing stress can help us smell better, naturally. In addition to the benefits of hot water, adding Lavender essential oil to your bath can help you stress less.
Our EO Lavender Bubble Bath is made with intention (we go on about that here) and the essential oils that are in every single sudsy drop are no exception. Lavender is known as a calming oil that relaxes the senses, the mind, and the body. Our co-Founder, Susan has some lovely uses for Lavender here if find yourself craving more Lavender after one of these bubble baths.
If you take a bath with the EO Eucalyptus & Arnica Bubble Bath, you can get the added benefits of Wintergreen, a topical pain reliever. Let the soothing extracts of Arnica, Wintergreen, Eucalyptus, and Pine essential oils soothe your body and mind and help you release tension.
Relax In A Bath
So, relax in a bath, friends. It can help reduce your stress levels, make you smell better, soothe your mood, release tension, and give you some quality self-care time. And, with EO’s dedication to people, planet, and purpose you won’t have to worry about harmful ingredients or practices.
