Not surprisingly bathing has been a huge part of human health and hygiene for millennia. It’s also found that there’s a tradition on every continent; Scandinavians take cool water plunges after their time in saunas, and Romans loved baths so much they created under-floor heating. Today, bathing is also regarded as a time to relax. But what real benefits does it offer, particularly when you can opt for a faster shower?

According to a few studies, it has been found that being horizontal in water helps with your mood. The combination of warmth, isolation, bodily comfort, and body positioning can all help to put you in a positive frame of mind. Comfort possibly comes because lying horizontally in a warm bath mimics the conditions of the womb.

Bathing can also help with those who suffer with skin conditions. People who have psoriasis or eczema, for example, will find that incorporating their prescribed medical oils with a bath is a good method of moisturising. It is also effective for sloughing off dead skin cells.

Another benefit of taking baths is muscle pain relief. When taking a hot bath, it is recommended that the heat of the bath is equivalent to a hot pack. This can soothe tight muscles and help with recovery.

Hot baths are also associated with a good night’s sleep. Bathing in a hot bath, and cooling yourself down afterwards, is a sure way of kick-starting the hormone that induces sleep. Not only this, but it hosts health benefits such as strengthening the immune system.

Country Cast Baths provides cast iron baths that are so beautiful and comfortable that bathing will become a treat. The tubs are large and luxurious. The iron also holds heat really well meaning you can soak for longer without the water going cold.
