Let’s face it, these days, peoples weeks, months and years are pretty full! Work, study, travel, friends, gym, family, walking the dog, keeping up with social media… it never ends. We are caught in a bit of a ‘busyness bubble’ and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by it all. This is why it’s important to take some time out every once and a while. Take a deep breath, slow things down and be kind to yourself..... and perhaps have a soak in the tub with SOAK SOCIETY'S INCREDIBLE WELLNESS SOAKS!
The benefits of a good soak once in a while (or everyday) are endless. It’s a great way to rid your body of unwanted toxins and the perfect way to relax sore muscles or calm a busy mind. HOWEVER, the benefits of a relaxing bath depend entirely on what you chose to soak your body in. Remember, we want to be ridding our body of toxins, not bathing in them.
A few nasties to watch out for....
Many bubble baths, bath bombs and soaks contain artificial ingredients that can be harmful to your skin... and your insides (no thanks!). Common nasty ingredients Include:
- Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) are foaming agents commonly found in bath products, which have been linked to cancer and liver damage.
- Methyl Ionone is an aromatic chemical used to make products smell nice. This chemical can cause skin irritation and is also harmful to aquatic environments. And guess what happens when you pull the plug ladies? Ever wondered where the bath water goes? You guessed it – local waterways!
For a list other harmful ingredients to look out for see my blog post that lists ‘The Dirty Dozen’.
