Well and Good: Take Me Away

During this time of year, there are lots of reasons to relax. Whether life’s demands are catching up with you, your new running regimen is more brutal than you expected, or you just need a few moments of solitude, a hot, relaxing bath is a great way to unwind.

With so many bath products to choose from, how do you know which ones will provide maximum relaxation? We’re glad you asked!

Aches and Pains – If you’ve recently begun a new workout or running regimen, a hot bath is a great way to get rid of the muscle soreness that can keep you from accomplishing your goal. If your legs feel like spaghetti, try Aura Cacia’s Soothing Heat. With eucalyptus, rosemary and ginger, this concoction will have you back on track in no time. No synthetic colors or fragrances are ever used in Aura Cacia products, and they’re full of pure essential oils for maximum results.

Dry, Itchy Skin – If the cold winds of winter are doing a number on your skin, a lukewarm bath is a great remedy. “Lukewarm” is a big key, since hot baths can leave your skin drier than before. It’s also important to use products that are free of alcohol and other drying ingredients. Lily of the Desert’s Aloe 80 Bubble Bath is a great option. With Aloesorb, a patented polysaccharide, this formula will help your skin soak in all of aloe’s goodness. Your skin will thank you for this special treat! Aloe 80 Bubble Bath also packs a serious moisture punch with ingredients like Shea butter, lavender oil and chamomile. After Aloe 80, your skin will be ready for what winter has to offer. Follow with Aloe 80 Body Lotion for maximum protection.

Cares of the Day – Let’s face it, life is demanding. When the weight of it all gets to be a little too much, a bubble bath is a great way to reclaim your sanity. In this case, the scent you choose has a big impact on the level of relaxation you achieve. One of our FRESH favorites is Deep Steep’s Lavender ~ Chamomile. With no chemical surfactants or fragrances, this calming combination will help you unwind and leave the day’s stresses in the tub.  If you’re planning on a long, hot bath, tools like a pillow or hair band can add to your experience.
