Top 10 Rationalizations for Escaping to the Tub
You may feel guilty for wanting to escape your family for a little while, but now more than ever, you need to be mindful of your own health and treat yourself to pleasurable, relaxing activities that support your physical and mental wellness. One of the best ways to do this is to take a nice, long, healing salt bath.
Soaking in a warm bath with a glass of wine or a good book is one of life’s simple pleasures that you probably never seem to have time for, but when you do, the chaos and stress of life instantly melts away. We're celebrating April Baths this month with 20% off our Bath Tea Blends when you use code: APRILBATHS.

Benefits of CBD-infused Salt Bath
10. Boosts immunity and overall health
When you are soaking in a CBD-Infused sea salt bath, you are reducing inflammation in the body and absorbing minerals from the sea salt that boost resistance to illness and disease. The heat of the bathwater also helps eliminate toxins, viruses, and bacteria from the body through sweat.
9. Reduces stress and anxiety
Whether it’s pressure from work, the stress of homeschooling the kiddos, or just the anxiety of the unknown during this unnerving time, settling into a bath and indulging yourself for a little while will calm the nervous system and relieve stress and anxiety.
8. Supports a good night’s sleep
Sleep is essential for the health of your body, mind, and soul. Relaxing in a quiet, warm bath with essential oils like Lavender + Chamomile can help you unwind and enhance your nighttime sleep routine.
7. Promotes healthy skin
If you’re looking for an easy way to up your skincare game, soaking in a CBD-infused salt bath is a great shortcut. The minerals in sea salt combined with CBD, naturally derived from hemp, give your skin a healthy, youthful glow, balance moisture levels, and detoxify your pores. If you suffer from psoriasis or eczema, the CBD can help calm the inflammation to reduce itchiness and redness.
6. Soothes muscles and joints
A warm bath can release muscle tension and reduce soreness and inflammation. Taking the weight off joints and muscles by soaking in a bath can ease those aches and pains you can’t seem to shake off. Because CBD is an anti-inflammatory agent, a soak can penetrate those muscles and offer soothing relief.
5. Reduces depression and feelings of loneliness
Can’t seem to get out of your funk? Taking a warm bath has been shown to have mood-boosting effects. A study at Yale University found that bathing in warm water can reduce depression and feelings of loneliness due to our association of warmth with comfort that is instinctive to us from infancy.
4. Decreases congestion
A combination of sea salt, steam, and eucalyptus can help break up mucus buildup and prevent congestion from developing later. The nutrients and minerals from the sea salt also promote a healthy respiratory system which can help ward off infections and viruses. Try our Eucalyptus + Jasmine blend!
3. Relieves headaches
If you’re suffering from a headache or migraine that just won’t go away, try a salt bath. The magnesium from sea salt can relieve that tension and all the stress that comes with it. While we recommend the Lavender + Chamomile blend for headache relief, smells can be triggering for some headache sufferers, so use the blend that feels best for you.
2. Increases energy
A sea salt bath allows your body to absorb the minerals it needs (like magnesium) to generate energy. Plus, adding citrus essential oils into the mix can revitalize your body and mind to help you conquer the day. Our Grapefruit + Rose blend is a favorite for an uplifting experience.
1. Taking care of yourself is often the best thing you can do for others
While escaping into the tub can feel self-indulgent, we all must remember that caring for ourselves is as important as caring for our loved ones. Now is the perfect time to change the unhealthy habit of not making our own wellness a priority. A long, luxurious bath with CBD-infused sea salt and essential oils can heal our bodies and improve our mental wellbeing. Enjoy the whole routine: draw a warm bath, toss in a bath tea, light a candle, put on some music and enjoy!
The health-boosting and stress-relieving benefits of a CBD-infused sea salt bath are endless so make it part of your weekly (or daily) routine to stay well-balanced, especially during these very unsettling times. Our own expertly blended bath teas combine the therapeutic benefits of sea salt, CBD, and distinct botanicals and essential oils that heal the body, mind and soul.
