Immersing our bodies in warm water is one of the best ways to bring us comfort and calm, and soaking in a bath of natural salts, herbs or flowers has long been known to give therapeutic and healing benefits.
We love bath soaks at Y.Wait! They're one of our favourite ways to relax our minds and rejuvenate our bodies. In today's post, we want to show you four of the most amazing ingredients to bathe in and why they're so good! If you don't have access to a bath, don't worry. These soaks are perfect as hand and foot soaks too, for soft and glowing skin. Just add to a large bowl instead of a bathtub. 😊
Himalayan salts are the purest form of naturally occurring salt and are frequently used in the most luxurious of spa treatments. That pretty pink hue that we love is due to the wide range of trace minerals it contains, including potassium and magnesium, which can improve your skin's pH balance. So, bathing in these salts will help to keep skin hydrated and retain its natural moisture.

Epsom salts are a tried and trusted bath treatment! These skin-loving salts were originally discovered in Epsom, a small county town in England, in the 17th Century. The magnesium content within can help reduce aching muscles and relieve cramps and tension. This is the perfect soak for maximum relaxation!

Rose Buds & Petals
The practice of bathing in natural ingredients has been around for centuries, and bathing rituals can vary between cultures. In Japan, local ingredients are often infused into bath water, such as tea! The antioxidant properties of tea soothe and detoxify the skin for a relaxing soak. Rose petal tea in particular is not only a beautiful and sumptuous addition to any bath routine, but is excellent for soothing dry or irritated skin.

Nettles are known for their anti-inflammatory properties, helping to ease symptoms of many common skin conditions. Using nettle tea as a bath soak also provides astringent effects that help refine the skins surface to recover its natural glow. Time to draw that nettle bath!
