Psst... Hot Baths Are Good For You!

Psst... Hot Baths Are Good For You!
We may have several guilty pleasures, but now soaking in the tub with your favourite products does not need to be on that list! Long, bubbly, luxurious hot baths are actually good for you - including several health benefits.

Baths give you a wonderful combination of isolation, quiet, and comfort." The feelings of closeness we receive from being submerged in warm liquid "gives us connotations of being in the womb, and it is very comforting,"

Would you believe it if we told you that you can actually burn calories by taking a hot bath?! In many cultures they swear by health benefits that are associated with a hot bath. Science has recently discovered and begun to understand how passive heating can improve your health and burn calories. Studies have shown that the number of calories burned during a 30min walk closely resemble the number burned during a hot bath.

Want to escape reality, reduce stress and anxiety? A bath and the right products can help with that. Hot baths are great for meditation, reflection, and practicing breathing exercises. A nice bath will melt your stress away while helping you find a deeper connection to your sense of self.

Next time you’re in need to destress and melt away your worries try our J’Adore Matcha Bath Bomb. It’s designed premium grade blended matcha with a silky combination of butters and peppermint oils to leave your whole body and mind relaxed and peacefully rejuvenated.

Ending your day with a bath is a perfect evening ritual to contribute to a good nights sleep. At night our body temperatures will naturally drop, which in turn signals the production of melatonin- the sleeping hormone. Soaking in a warm bath before bed till raise your body temperature and once you get out of the bath it will cool down more rapidly and as a result trigger production of melatonin. Tonight, add a Snooze Bomb into your bath and let the bergamot and patchouli oil relax and soothe your body and mind.

A hot bath can ease and relax muscle pains. It also goes a step further when you infuse your baths with salts. Those suffering from arthritis will notice the reduced inflammation in their joints thanks to the proven benefits of bath salts. The anti-inflammatory properties of salt baths have also shown to have positive effects on people suffering from metabolic diseases like type 2 diabetes. Sea Kelp Serenity CRUSH Soak is a perfect treat to your sore and aching muscles.

This last one is a bit of tweak- a warm bath rather then a hot one is the key to success. Warm baths can help soothe irritated and itchy skin when combined with oatmeal. Our latest blend of CRUSH- Ancient Oak Hydration will envelop, soothe and delight your skin with it’s blend of oats, rice milks and subtle sweet scent of calendula flowers.

Next time you're pouring a hot bath, remember- you are actually doing yourself a favour!
