More on bathing

Besides relaxing and cleaning, what can a bath do for you? A bath can also be therapeutic. Hydrotherapy has been used throughout the ages for various afflictions of the human body. Old skin cells and even lesions are soaked off, blood circulation is stimulated, promoting elimination of body toxins, and it aids the digestive system.

How do I take a therapeutic bath?

At it's very simplest, a bather fills the tub with warm water that is comfortable, not too hot, and not cold. However, other products can be added to the water to treat specific circumstances.

Here are some:

* Oatmeal - oats are known for soothing itchy and/or irritated skin and conditioning it, as well as relaxing the person using them.

* Baking soda (Sodium Bicarbonate) - Add a cup or two to the water to soften it, and to make the skin feel silky. It is a deodorizer, also.

* Cornstarch - soothes irritated, dry or itchy skin. Makes the bath feel "silky."
