A good rejuvenating bath is proven to detox, relax and heal your mind, body and soul. I love hot water baths, especially after a tiring day at work. On being exhausted by the end of the day, my body screams out loud for revitalizing bath. Soft music playing in the background and scented candles lighting your darkish bathroom will get you a calming spa like atmosphere at home. Foaming gels, frizzy bath bombs, silky essential oils and colored salts, these days you have myriad of choices to add a dash of magic and therapeutic healing to your bath.
Let me share with you a few refreshing bath recipes to spice up your bathing experience and rejuvenate your physical, mental and emotional well being. They are incredibly fast and easy and the best thing is that you can make them on your own at home.
Calming Lavender Milk Bath
This one is truly refreshing and all you need is a cup of milk powder and two to three drops of lavender oil. Mix these two ingredients in a small bowl, and use it for your bath. You will be delighted by the velvety smooth, supple skin and enjoy a feeling of total well being. For a luxurious treat like that of a princess, try adding a few rose petals or lavender leaves to your bath water.
Cleansing Clay Bath
Boost your blood circulation, slash away dead skin cells and get rid of all the dirt and grime with a cleansing clay bath and let your body breathe free. Simply dissolve 400-500 grams of white clay in your bath water and let it soak for ten to fifteen minutes and then wash under the shower without using soap or any other cleansing product.
Moisturizing Almond Body Bath
A cup of mineral (Epsom) or sea salt when stirred well in a few drops of almond oil and glycerin make the prefect recipe for a nourishing bath and you will come out with deliciously smooth and baby soft skin. You may also add 2-3 drops of essential oils such as Jasmine, Chamomile and Rose to get that ultimate moisturizing and refreshing bath experience.
Beautifying Milk and Honey Bath
It may sound cliché, but a honey and milk bath is a fantastic way to get super soft, puerile skin. The lactic acid contained in milk provides excellent exfoliation and honey lends a terrific softening effect to your skin. Add a cup of full fat powdered milk and half cup of honey to your bath water and mix them together. It’s incredibly easy and my personal favorite.
Anti aging Red Wine or Champagne Bath
The last cup of champagne or red wine stacked in the back corner of your fridge, does that usually end up in trash? It just won’t, if only you knew that red wine has polyphenols with the goodness of amazing antioxidants and the champagne has wonderful skin lightening properties. Isn’t that enough to justify you soaking in champagne or wine bath.
