Fill a bath with steamy hot water, add a few bubbles, light a few candles and instantly you feel blissfully happy. Well at least that is the effect it has on me. I must just add that some wonderfully glorious vanilla shimmering bath salts and gloriously delicious chocolate bath wash definitely adds more bliss to the experience! I love taking a long soak in a steamy hot bath that leaves my skin tingly and feeling vibrantly alive.
There are scientific facts stating the benefits of taking a bath, baths seem to temporarily stimulate blood circulation and may help to reduce swelling and pain. It also helps you relax if you’re anxious or tense. The drop in body temperature after the bath may help those who can’t sleep.
Your skin will undoubtedly thank you. Bathing in warm water opens up pores and cleanses your skin from the inside out, leaving you soft and supple. Bathing actually lowers blood pressure. Your body will relax and your mind has a chance to wander, leaving the stress of the day behind and filling itself with relaxing sensual thoughts. You’ll also smell fantastically fabulous!! You will also finally have some time alone. You can literally close the door on the outside world and disappear.
Who wouldn’t like to indulge in any one of these wonderful benefits, and besides, It’s wonderfully sensual. Add a few vanilla and chocolate scented candles and it makes a perfect treat!
I love that lovely flush I get from all that steam and warmth, and with a fabulously rich and soothing chocolate body butter to rub onto my skin afterwards. I feel deliciously happy, shimmering and smelling nice enough to lick myself 😉 lol
Hope you all go and enjoy a soothing, steamingly delicious and relaxing bath to kick off your week!
