getting that perfect bath in the summer

On the hottest, stickiest, and harshest days of summer, you’re probably not going to come home and yearn to have a nice, warm bath. While taking one may not seem like the most attractive idea during the summer, it doesn’t mean you have to give up the benefits of bathing in favor of comfort during this time of the year. Summer baths can come with quite a few distinct benefits of their own.

Ideas For Summer Baths

A bath during the summer can be quite refreshing, but you’ll want to make sure you’re preparing for and enjoying your bath properly. First, if your bathroom doesn’t have adequate cooling in the summer, opening a window and placing a fan in the room can help keep you relaxed and comfortable during the whole bath. Also, you’ll want to shy away from making your bath too hot and opt for a cooler or slightly warm bath instead.

When taking a bath in the summer, it can also help to embrace cool scents such as those in our Citrus Bath Soak and Eucalyptus Bath Soak. Doing so can turn your bathing experience into one that is rejuvenating and exhilarating while still allowing you to relax.

Summer Baths For Summer Benefits

Summer is a wonderful season. But while you have snow, ice, frostbite, and harsh winds to worry about in winter, there are issues you’ll find yourself dealing with in the summer as well. Sunburn, overheating, bug bites, and plant-induced rashes are just some common summer concerns that can all be relieved with the help of a summer bath.

If bug bites or a nasty case of poison ivy, oak, or sumac is plaguing you, taking a warm bath with a bit of chamomile and oatmeal can do a great deal to soothe the skin. What this combination does is to calm and cleanse the skin at the same time, and the bath will leave you feeling refreshed.

If the sun happens to get the best of you, a bath can help you with sunburn as well. First, draw a hot bath, then add a handful of black tea bags such as Earl Grey, English Breakfast, Chai, or a similar blend, allowing the teabags to soak in the water for around 10 to 15 minutes. Not only will this allow the water to cool to a comfortable temperature, but it will also help the tea steep thoroughly into the bathwater. Black tea can work to draw heat from the skin and address the damage the sun has caused.

Lastly, if the heat of the day is the problem, taking a bath with cooling elements will allow you to take your temperature down a few notches. A lukewarm or cool bath with the addition of some sliced cucumber and peppermint essential oil can provide you with a way to revive your entire body.
