Finally, proof that luxurious baths are good for your health
Ever wonder why bathing has been part of cultures throughout the ages? Bathing in the Dead Sea, Mineral Pools of Japan, Hot Springs in the United States, Iceland's warm communal pools to name a few.
Studies are now shedding light that bathing is not just for improved hygiene or social connections and ritual purification. According to Verilymag.com a study at Loughborough University in the U.K. looked at how bathing affects blood sugar levels and calories burned. It confirmed theories that the "passive heating" of bathing has similar benefits to those of aerobic exercise. Those that bathed for an hour burned 140 calories, the equivalent of taking a thirty-minute walk.
At Mountain Laurel Boutique we have a wide selection of Dead Sea and Epsom soaking salts that are loaded with essential oils for a combination of external and internal therapy for the body. Choose the fragrance to suite your mood, and a dash of color for a fun bathing experience, or if you are a purest at heart, order yours naked, free of the all natural color.
