So one of the things i love doing is taking what i call a medicated bath. No this isn’t something i go to the doctors for, or even go to the store for. Just a lil something i picked up on the way of life. These medicated baths vary on how i am feeling and what i’d like to accomplish for myself. I like to use herbs and many other fruits and vegetables to use throughout the bath to enhance my skin and hair. Self care is the first step into feeling beautiful no matter who or what anyone says you look like.
Just last night i gave my self a ginger soak. I was feeling down and out. Very pushed to my limits, and of course my anxiety was running wild. I ran my boyfriend a little nuts too lol. Dealing with Covid and of course just the dailies of life has been piling up and creating a muck. Its best i regroup.
First thing is to draw your bath with basic water. Whatever temperature you prefer. I like it HOT, as my body tends to naturally be cold, i have notoriously cold feet at all times of the year.
HOW I SOURCE MY BATH INGREDIENTS
You can source your materials however you￼ prefer, but i am SUPER lazy and i like to just have whatever i need already at home. My method is also cost effect, literally costs you nothing. ￼
I use ginger root in my cooking, but any source of ginger should be fine as long as its natural and organic. When im using ginger i have to cut the outer skin off to use it. I do not throw away the ginger skins. I wash it, let it dry on a paper towel or a clean dish towel (while also finishing up my cooking for said meal). As im cleaning up i placed the now dried ginger into a jar (any recycled jar will do). Place it in the fridge until needed. You may also use this method to use in cooking.
So as the bath is being drawn, pop those ginger bits in a pot, add some water. Boil this just like that, you may add any other herbs of choice. I just like ginger on its own. You may turn off the heat once the bath is finished being drawn. Pour everything into the bath.
Ginger Bath. Of course this is very basic and simple and seems like a no brainer. But for someone like me who refuses to be touched by strangers at say a spa. These are my little indoor luxuries. Also some people who have the priveledge of being home to quaratine and those who do not can both benefit from this. Ginger is a great source of vitamin C, magnesium (helps with sleep) and is a immune boosting food. Basic vitamins needed to combat most infectious diseases and virus’. It has a long history of being used in chinese medicine, so research away at your leisure.
While you can drink the ginger tea and recieve its benefits, your skin also naturally absorbs moisture all the time, as it is an organ (the biggest organ on the human body). This will greatly benefit those dealing with skin ailments as well. Winter or summer a ginger bath makes me feel like a new person. I love ginger for all of its many uses but one thing that strikes me the most is its vibrant smell. It naturally energizes you while also calms the mind. This tends to give me a nice buzz feeling to sort out my anxiety and other mental issues. No Ginger is not a ￼psychedelic drug.
Of course, please do not ingest or submerge yourself in ginger should you be allergic. Research the pros and cons and the dosage amounts of anything before you attempt. This is harmless and very benefiticial should you take such actions. This does not seem to be a common allergy as Ginger is placed in most chinese dishes and other non asian cultural food cuisines.
… got treats?
