We all know how good it feels to sink into a hot bath, but did you know that the combination of isolation, quiet, and comfort we experience while BAVING can lift our mood and diminish feelings of depression and pessimism?
In our non stop world taking the time to submerge yourself in warm water infused with BAVE therapeutic Essential Oils and BAVE Restorative Salts induces feelings of comfort and easiness, creating the kind of security that allows your mind, and subsequently your body, to relax.
Sounds like mumbo-jumbo? There’s a science to bath time elation! “In a German study, participants with depression reported a boost in mood after soaking in a 40C bath for 30 minutes. In fact, in this experiment, regular baths proved to be more effective in aiding depression than aerobic exercise.”
Why? One reason is that the heat of a hot bath causes the body to release the chemical endorphins, which relieve feelings of stress and pain. Time in the tub likewise stimulates the neurotransmitter serotonin, which is associated with feelings of joy.
