Staying in for the Corona Apocalypse?
Relax, take a bath, we’ve got you!
By Cassandra Perry
While the world is in mass hysteria, it’s important to step back and re-evaluate how you are taking care of yourself. This, in the end, is what will help prevent you from becoming part of the outbreak. Our bodies are here to protect us, and they are amazing regenerators if we allow them to be, and give them the aid they need in this process. It is shown that stress, anxiety, and lack of rest or sleep is directly linked to suppressing the immune system. This is why we want to speak directly to all the good you can do for your mind and body during this time. Here at Vital You, we’re all about that self-love, self-care, daily practice of wellness.
Relax, take a bath!
It’s amazing what lying in a tub of hot water can do for you. We all should know the benefits it has for our skin, muscles and joints, as that is most likely what we feel first and foremost. But there’s more to that. Submerging yourself in hot water makes your blood flow easier and become more oxygenated by allowing you to breathe deeper and slower. This also reduces pain and inflammation, and calms the nervous system, relieving levels of stress and anxiety in the mind and body. Taking a bath also works much like using a humidifier. The flu virus survives longer in dry indoor air. This may make the virus spread more easily, therefore, adding humidity into your home and routine, may just help reduce flu viruses in the air. In conclusion, taking a hot bath can not only kill bacteria, but improve immunity, and relieve flu symptoms as well.
Add a bomb!
What makes these benefits even better? Using nature’s medicine in your bath with you!
Within our bath bombs are many blends of herbal and botanical ingredients that can be beneficial to this particular cause. For example, some ingredients we use that are known to be anti-microbial/anti-viral/anti-bacterial/anti-septic are the following; Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Clary Sage, Peppermint, Frankincense, Wintergreen, Helichrysum.
If you are already experiencing flu or illness, some additional ingredients we use can help to relieve your symptoms. The herb essentials we use that can help aid pain, inflammation, stress release and breathing are as follows; Roman Chamomile, Lavender, Rosemary, Ylang-Ylang, Balsam Fir.
Not sure where to start?
For all the benefits stated above, we recommend you start by trying our bath bombs titled as Breathe, Serenity, Clarity, Surrender, Balance, and Sleep. All which can be found on our site and is displayed with the ingredients included. (You’ve likely taken all your shopping to the internet at this point anyway.)
How will hemp products help aid you during this time? Due to the hemp craze, you likely know that hemp is an anti-inflammatory. But did you know its other benefits are quite vast and influential? As research continues, this plant alone has shown to have an immense amount of resources we could be using. Relevant to this case, CBD is known to be an anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and an antioxidant. It can reduce the immune system’s inflammatory response, encourage the protection of cells, and fight against bacterial infections. Some researchers also think that cannabis’s ability to modulate the immune system could reduce the number of flu-related deaths. It’s anti-inflammatory properties can also help cope with symptoms such as sore throat, congestion, head and body aches as well as the aid of pain relief, relaxation and sleep. Our bath bombs come in different doses of CBD isolate, regulated to your liking and experience with potency. We take this step in our process very seriously to make sure that you are getting exactly what you need and expect of our product.
