Bath Salts & Why they're Good for You

Bath Salts and why they're Good for You: Holiday Tea Collection

No Time? No Problem! It only takes 20 minutes to enjoy the many benefits a bath has to offer.

 

I was one of those people that did not like taking baths because I felt that I did not have time and baths were too involved. That idea soon changed when wisdom from my mom prevailed.  Every time I would talk to my mom I would complain about having low energy, feeling overworked, and not sleeping well. My mom would tell me to take a bath each time and I would give my usual excuses. Finally, I would just give in and say I would take a bath but never get around to doing it.  

Then one day I received something in the mail that would finally get me to take a bath.  My mom had sent me these rare and amazingly therapeutic bath salts from the Mediterranean Sea.  A little note was enclosed that said, “Just 20 minutes in the bath with these salts and you will feel like a million dollars.” I smiled and knew that mom had finally forced my hand and there was no way around taking a bath now. 

 

So that night when I got home really late the last thing I wanted was to put the energy into taking a bath, but I knew my mom would be calling the next day to find out how it went.  With this in mind, I mustered up what little energy I had left and started the bath.  

 

To my surprise, it took very little energy to prepare the bath: just add salts, start water, & wait for bath to fill. While the bath was filling up I took care of loose ends like removing my makeup, brushing my teeth, etc.  Then I started my timer on my phone for 20 minutes and popped in the bath. Of course I fell asleep in the bath and woke up to my timer beeping which to me felt like only a couple of minutes went by. I drained the water and started off to bed.  

 

The next day, with no exaggeration at all, I truly did feel like a million dollars. That night I slept the best I had ever slept in my life. There was no tossing and turning or waking up in the middle of the night. It was truly the perfect deep sleep I needed even though it was only for five hours.  

 

As I got ready in the morning, gone was the soreness I usually felt, gone was the achy feeling, gone was the anxiety and sad feelings. For the first time in a long time I felt like myself again and as always I learned that mom is always right!
