With all the stresses that come with everyday life, it is increasingly important to find time in your busy schedule for rest and relaxation. High stress levels can create serious issues that directly affect your health. That is why it is important to practice stress relieving activities to help lower stress levels and contribute towards a healthier lifestyle.
A therapeutic bath is a fantastic way to relieve tension in muscles, lower blood pressure, relieve stress, and restore healthy sleeping habits- but store bought bath soaps can be expensive and contain synthetic colors and fragrances.
