Humans have turned to the healing properties of water for centuries. The Ancient Egyptians used to bathe in the Nile for religious purposes and the Ancient Greeks were famous for their gorgeous, elaborate bath houses. The combination of water, warmth, and steam can alleviate joint and muscle aches, relieve headaches, open the sinuses, promote a healthy delivery for pregnant women and so much more. If you’re already taking baths, you’re a few steps ahead of many other individuals (who only stand in their baths and use the shower). If you aren’t yet taking baths, it’s time to finally clean up your bathtub so you can lie down in it. Taking regular baths could alleviate a number of ailments you’re suffering from. Once you’re in there, here are some healing things to add to your bath.

Ginger has long been used to treat stomach ailments and fight off colds and flus. Adding ginger root to your bath can provide many of the same benefits. If you suffer from bloating, gas or digestive issues, soaking in a ginger root bath could provide a lot of relief. A ginger bath also induces a heavy sweat, which helps you release toxins from your body.
