Lately, it’s been my goal to be more intentional about keeping work and play separate. Rather than fritter away my evenings, I want to fully relax…and taking a hot bath is a great way to do that! It’s also one of my favorite ways to induce sleep naturally. I used to sleep easily, but after having my baby son I’ve gotten into the habit of waking often at night, even though he’s six months old now and he’s no longer waking!
Since my goal with taking a bath is to relax–not get clean–I like to use the bath for gentle detoxing, too. I add Epsom salts to the bath water, which draw toxins from the body and allow skin to absorb minerals like magnesium.
