Wellness Wednesday: Bathing is Beautiful

Dr. Teal's

I’m obsessed with bathing. I use it to relax at the end of a long day, to perk me up some mornings, and sometimes twice a day on the weekends. I have always believed everything can be resolved with a bath. I know many wellness people agree with me. I’m on day 11 of a 20 day cleanse and the creator advises taking baths to aid in cleansing and detoxing the body. He didn’t need to convince me. Bathing is therapeutic. I can’t get enough of “big girl bath time.” It’s an event. I usually have tea, listen to music, light a candle, and relax. One of my absolute favorite bathing accoutrements is Dr. Teal’s Lavender Epsom Salts. I go through a bag in a week. I make it part of my grocery list when I go to the store. Since I am not the best sleeper I have to always prepare to get into that “relaxed state of mind” to fall asleep easily. I am working out like crazy and the Epsom salts help ease the pain of all this exercise. Beauty is pain and work sometimes ladies.

In the February issue of Town and Country, Gully Wells made a beautiful point on bathing in divinely titled piece The Elegance of the Soak.

“Showers are quick, efficient – puritanical even. They deliver cleanliness, which we all know is second only to godliness in the pantheon of American virtues. But baths – now that’s a whole other story. Baths are luxurious, decadent, and, dare I say it, sexy. A soak in the tub conjures visions of indulgent, lazy afternoons with loads of time, a good book, and heated floors. It’s a slow retreat into a private space where reverie and relaxation allow your mind to drift in directions you never imagined.”
