Part of the stress-releasing power of a bath comes from the simple fact that as you emerge from it and your body cools, it automatically triggers your body’s relaxation response. Soak in one of goop’s super-powered sea-salt-and essential-oil baths, though, and you’ll experience a whole new level of barely-able-to-stumble-from-tub-to-bed. Beyond relaxation, a soak in hot water has a unique ability to deliver nurturing ingredients to the body. Our curation of bath soaks includes luxury bubble baths, bath oils, and bath salts, all crafted to help you maximize the mental and physical benefits of bath time.
What are Bath Salts?
Luxury bath salts are a key component of a bath-based detox, as they were traditionally n used to treat mental and physical issues in a simple and cost-effective manner. Usually made of magnesium sulfate (Epsom salt) or sea salt, bath salts dissolve easily in warm bath water and are used for everything from stress reduction to muscle recovery.
What are Bath Soaks Used For?
After a long day at work, or after a particularly hard workout, a bath can be the best reprieve—and based on what you faced during the day and how you’re feeling, what to put in the bath is the question of the day. For a malady like sore muscles, epsom salts can do the trick; if you’re feeling under-the-weather, you’ll likely want something like a mustard bath; and if you’re winding down before bed, we recommend adding essential oils like valerian.
