Why you should be soaking if you aren’t already
We would be ignorant to think that the benefits of ‘Bathing’ or ‘Soaking’ is a recent enlightenment toward natural health. In fact, many cultures have used this method of healing for thousands of years. Take the Traditional Balinese Flower bath for instance – Apart from it’s Instagram worthy beauty the Traditional Flower bath is a mix of flower petals and oils that work to help heal your body and have you feeling more refreshed in both body and mind.
Before even adding anything to a bath it is already known to be a relaxing environment in itself. It can help improve your heart health through a warm temperature elevating your pulse giving it a healthy activation and workout. It can also induce a reduction in stress through an initiation of a ‘time out’ from our busy and stressful day to day lives. Ultimately speaking taking the time to do something for you is extremely beneficial to one’s mental and physical health. Then with the addition of Natural Remedies to the mix – you have yourself one therapeutic experience.
We ensured that our oils, salts and crystals were formulated to the point of perfection so that when you are feeling sick and tired of being sick and tired you can just soak it off. Sounds pretty easy right? Just get in the bath and get out feeling better than going in? Well it is, natural remedies really are that powerful. The best bit? You don’t even need a bath – our soak can be used effectively in a foot spa!
“Being happily obsessed by making natural remedies, we just had to create an extremely therapeutic and aromatic experience; Immersions Bath & Foot Soak – Respire.”
Let’s take a look at some of the key ingredients we chose and why:
Dead Sea Salt
Such an incredible salt that is extremely rich in minerals that work together in detoxifying your body and reducing inflammation. Magnesium, Calcium, Sodium, Zinc, Potassium and Sulphur, just to name a few, all offer unique and important properties to have you feeling that spring that you lost in your step.
Dead Sea Salt works to replenish your skin moisture, calm skin allergies, exfoliate dead skin, soothe sore joints and muscles all at the same time as fighting off pro-ageing free radicals.
Himalayan Pink Salt Crystals
Known for its powerful detoxifying properties this ionic salt solution works by extracting the toxins out of your skin and tissues. This is achieved through penetration of your skin giving your a refreshed and nourished feeling afterwards.
This was chosen as a vital soaking ingredient not only for it’s detoxifying properties but the effect it has on your energy. As your body organs resonate with the natural frequency of the minerals in the salt bath, your body is being recharged, boosting metabolism and triggering its self-healing powers.
Definitely one of the most well known ingredients within a soak. Hailed as the muscle relaxant goddess it’s frequented by most sports players and fitness lovers to help induce relaxation of their stiff and tire muscles. But how?
When Epsom Salt dissolves in water it releases Magnesium and Sulfate ions. This initiates the relaxation of stiff muscles, reduction of inflammation which work towards a better nights sleep. Magnesium is known to help improve muscle and nerve function and prevent artery hardening whilst sulfates help improve the absorption of nutrients, flush toxins and help ease headaches.
Peppermint and Menthol Oil
Peppermint and Menthol are both uplifting aromas that are from the mint family. Their greatest benefit is to assist in opening up the respiratory system and easing congestion. They are also known to boost mental clarity, reduce nausea and have a cooling effect on the skin.
Niaouli oils work well as a natural antiseptic and can be used to treat a variety of skin ailments such as open wounds, acne scars and bacterial infections. In actual fact it has often been used over the years to detoxify the body and purify water.
Oregano, Clove and Thyme Essential Oil
While not to be mistaken to be the same because we are grouping them together than can offer many of the same benefits thus enhancing them further by combining the three together. All three of them work in their own way to ultimately boost your immune system and assist in the protection and combat of illness.
Strong, warm and spicy this oil is an uplifting aroma that can assist in relieving nausea, arthritis, digestive upset, colds and migraines.
A long time natural favourite due to its healing effects on the respiratory system – helping the combat of the common cold & flu. It can be a great immune booster and assist in relieving muscle pain. It’s also known for being an anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, decongestant, deodorant, antiseptic and antibacterial.
