4 Reasons For Ethnic Beauties to Take a Bath
4 Reasons to Take a Bath:
1. Relaxation - What better way to relax than in a tub of warm to hot water. Not so hot that you burn your skin or emerge looking like a prune. But warm water is soothing to your skin and relaxing to your body, mind and spirit.
2.Get-a-way Time - Taking a bath allows you to plan for get-a-way time. You can actually create your own in-house-spa. Fresh flowers, scented bath salts and wonderful aromatic blends will enhance your bathing time.
3. To Relieve Stress - Bathing relieves stress. When my mom became ill, coming home and taking a bath was one of the ways that I could truly relax. For me the water was like escaping into a tropical womb. I'd make sure the bathroom was always hotter than July. Not only did this feeling of warmth allow me to relax, I could sweat and remove toxins at the same time.
Stress can create toxic build up in your cells, your blood as well as your skin. Sinking into a tub of warm water in a hot room, was like having my own personal sauna.
4. To explore and experience new bath products - There's nothing like a great smelling essential oil blend or bath salts to add as part of your bathing regimen.
The use of essential oils allows you to relax and rejuvenate your body. Inhaling the beauty of a blend as if in a yoga class can often provide beneficial results.
Here are a few recipes for essential use in your bath:
A calming bath (preferably at night) would include essential oils such as lavender, chamomile and sweet orange. While it's a known fact that oil and water don't always mix, you can add 4 drops of lavender, 2 drops of chamomile and 4 drops of sweet orange to 4 ounces of water and create a wonderful linen spray.
You can add the same amount of drops to 4 ounces jojoba oil and now you've got a wonderful body oil for your skin as you emerge from your bath or you can add a few drops to your bath water and enjoy the blend while in your tub.
A Stimulating Bath (preferably in the morning) would include 5 drops of lemongrass or lemon, 3 drops of rosemary and 3 drops of peppermint. This combination would serve as your uplifting blend for bathing.
You can create the same products as the calming bath using water for a mist and jojoba oil for body or bathing.
You can also add essential oils by the drop straight into your bath water. The key is to add them when you have the desired amount of water in your tub and you've stopped running it.
It's best the add the essential oils once you've immersed yourself into your tub of water. This allows you to enjoy the beauty and aroma before it evaporates into the air. They're volatile like that .
As much as I'd like to stay and chat with you, it's much more fun to fill my tub with water and enjoy the beauty of a bath.
That's it for this week, as always …
Dedicated To Your Beauty,
