Our Chief Mermaid loves the water whether it's the ocean, a pool or the bath! She is not alone, from the beginning of civilization health by water has been ritualisitc from Cleopatra, Roman soldiers to people today such as Tom Ford who reportedly takes multiple baths a day!
Today we want to share the benefits of the bath and how to create the perfect spa setting and mood at home.
Your brain and nervous system benefit from bathing
Submergence in water can reduce pain and inflammation and also calm the nervous system, reducing the levels of stress and anxiety in the body and improving your mood.
Oxygenate your blood with a bath and boost immunity.
Not only does a warm bath make the blood flow easier, it also makes it more oxygenated by allowing you to breathe deeper and slower, particularly when taking in steam. Taking a hot bath can kill bacteria and improve immunity. It can also relieve the symptoms of cold and flu. Baths are great for relaxing your muscles, stimulating your nervous system, and gently exfoliating skin. people who enjoy baths and take them daily can experience less fatigue, stress, and depression.
