It’s amazing how we can get so busy with our day to day lives we forget the little things we can do to make them a little easier. Bathing is one of those activities that might be easily forgotten, but we should all take a little time to make it a priority. Taking a nice bath is pretty powerful and after you realize the benefits for yourself inside and out, you might decide to make some time for one yourself. Here are 9 reasons to fit a bath in to your routine.
1. They help reduce stress
Soaking in a nice relaxing bath helps reduce overall tension in both the mind and body. It lowers blood pressure and relaxes muscles. Giving you a few moments of peace and relaxation. We always suggest adding a great bath soak to your soak. Having a rough day? We suggest the Spot Light, the beautiful blend of sweet orange and peppermint is sure to raise your spirits.

3. They can help you sleep.
Baths can help improve sleep. We know sometimes it’s hard to wind down at the end of the day and get enough sleep, yet a warm bath might be all that you need to get those zzz’s. Bathing before bed can raise your body temperature, when your bath is down your body begins to cool down. This is cooling down period tells your body it is time to rest and you will start to feel sleepy. For a more relaxing bath it’s always a good idea to add one of our most relaxing bath bombs. We suggest Temptation or Sunset Love. (You can get them here: http://www.pairdbeauty.com/store/c2/Bath_Bombs.html)
4. They can help with pain.
Sore muscles? Try a warm bath as a form of hydrotherapy. This will help relax muscles and promote healing. If you’re looking to get a little extra out of a relaxing bath try adding one of our bath bombs, or bath soaks. The Dead Sea Salt in our bath bombs will promote healing and help you relax even more, it also reduce inflammation and reduce muscle soreness. We also have many beautiful blends available in both our bath bombs and bath soaks. For particularly sore days we suggest our 2 Too Many bath soak, the rushing peppermint, relaxing lavender and wonderful eucalyptus combine to help ease the body.

5. They can help reduce headaches
Headaches can be absolutely horrible, and anything to help prevent them is good in my book. Most headaches are caused by the narrowing of blood vessels in the head. As you soak in a bath the heat and steam will help relax the blood vessels. This reaction can help relieve and even cure a headache or migraine. For added help to cure any screaming headache or migraine, try our 2 Too Many bath bomb or bath soak. The blend of peppermint and eucalyptus helps with nausea and stress while lavender relaxes the muscles and encourages healthy blood circulation. This featured scent is sure to give some relief.

6. They boost memory retention
Soaking with one of our memory boosting essential oil blends will help you relax, and boost your memory. We suggest trying our Lost Girl or Rustic Waters blend. Lost girl will help with lifting spirits, focus, centering and boosting memory while the Rustic Waters is a rich blend that bring you back down to earth as well as boost memorization. These scents will be wonderful addition to studying, writers block, or when you need to clear your head. (Get them here: http://www.pairdbeauty.com/store/c5/Oils.html)
