Why baths are better than showers (opinionated)

Most believe showers are better and healthier because they quickly wash off the dirt of the day and leave your body fresh and clean, but honestly, baths are theoretically more efficient. Here's why: Baths are like an at-home jacuzzi. Filled with bubbly, richly scented soaps and salts, you feel right at home. But that isn't the only thing superior about baths. Bathing has psychologically been proven to be healthier than showers, not because they're warm and smell good, but because they clean deeper than the skin. The heat and scents relax your mind, sending it into a phase that is midway between subconscious and conscious, allowing your muscles to relax almost as if asleep. Your heart slows and body functions slow and after the torture of a hard day at work or school, this is exactly what your body needs; rest. When your body enters this level, stress eradicates itself, and your brain projects good memories, dreams, or even nothing at all depending on your average brain activity. Soaking in the warm water releases tension that is holding in your bones and muscles and releases toxins in your body so be sure to drink plenty of water! Typically, people who take baths are more likely to have a patient, calm, and relaxed personality and handle situations the most gentle and easy way possible, whereas those who shower are more likely to be rushed, frustrated, and are easily irritated and handle situations in negative ways and the harshest just to ensure the problem is over. Needless to say, this study is based on stereotype and select projects and can never be determined for sure as every human being is different and has different tastes. But what's not to try? Mix up your bathing life, add bath salts and experiment with bubble soap and try natural oils. It's all based on making you happy and helping you grow psychologically and keeping your mind as healthy as possible, not deteriorating it with stress. Enjoy your baths!

@kinna look online to see if there's anything you can use to warm the water, be creative! Or even just warm water on a stove and pour it in
If I've had a long day at work I prefer showering after, so that I'm not sitting in water filled with all the dust and muck from my day, but I usually have a bath on weekends when I can just relax, sometimes I'll even pick fresh herbs from the garden and use them in the bath
Agreed! But what is that picture of? It looks like a magic potion or something, lol.
Love this! I remember in college I didn't have a bathtub and that was the first thing I headed for when I visited home for the holidays. While sometimes showers are just more time efficient for me, a bath really does wonders for a psyche.
I miss my nice relaxing foam baths, I just have a shower, the bathtub cracked and was removed

3 luxury sustainable spas in Bali
Bali has a lot of spas; in some areas, every third shop is a spa. All varieties of spas can be found as well -- from local to international award winning spas. In recent years, a lot of people have become more conscious of what they put on their skin. The skin absorbs up to 60% of what you put on it, so with increasing amounts of chemicals in many products, it can lead to allergies or worse. One way to avoid this is to choose a spa that uses naturally made products and takes an approach that is kind to your skin. Local Indonesian jamu (traditional medicine) methods have always done this but a few luxury spas in Bali not only use natural products but also take the spa experience to a new level of comfort. The Spa at Alila Soori Villas The Spa is housed in a sustainably built house with a view of the Indian Ocean in front. Entering this warm and opulent hideaway, the central spa area is dominated by a beautiful pool that instantly adds a sensuously relaxed atmosphere. The traditional Balinese Beauty Ritual is two hours of pure bliss. Balinese lulur is an ancient village remedy with its origins from the rice farmers of Bali that is recognized as traditional medicine. The treatment is believed to help warm the body, relieve aching joints and help in the recovery of troubled or loose skin. Locally sourced sandalwood, fennel seed, star aniseed, eaglewood and fenugreek are blended together to use during this healing remedy. It is a 60 minutes Balinese Massage, body scrub, body mask and mini facial. The massage uses natural oils and you can choose a beautiful aromatic blend to suit your mood. After the massage, you are gently scrubbed using the herbal warming mixture and then wrapped in a cocoon while the gently heated massage table ensures every pore is cleansed and every muscle relaxed. The therapist performs a revitalizing mini facial as you relax on this wave of warmth. Not only do you feel like you are floating on a cloud after the treatment, but you are also assured that only the most natural ingredients have been used during this process. If you loved the products used, there are a wide range of Alila Spa products for sale to take with you. A particular favorite is the Black Volcanic Soap that is made from Balinese volcanic lava. Ojas Spa, COMO Shambhala Estate This famed wellness retreat outside Ubud is the ultimate luxury hideaway in the forest with an ethos based around holistic principles. If you are not staying here, you can come and get pampered at the beautifully serene Ojas Spa. Ranges of treatments are offered here, including hydrotherapy and Ayurveda treatments. This Zen space is very soothing and, set among vast sounding grounds; it is a quiet retreat to indulge in a treatment. Signature massages are done using specially blended oils made on the estate, sourced from local products and 100 percent natural. The Shambhala signature massage is an hour-long treatment and uses innovative long strokes and medium pressure to both relax and revive spirit and mind. Set in a light airy room looking onto a garden, complemented by clean lines to leave the mind uncluttered, this deeply therapeutic technique performed by a highly skilled therapist feels more like a four handed massage thanks to the expertise of the therapist. This is a deeply relaxing and aromatic experience that leaves the skin smooth and supple. Facials are also available using a range of their homemade products called PURIFIES. These products are based on the principles of aromatherapy, incorporating only premium grade oils free of parabens, petrochemicals, artificial fragrance and color. The PURIFY Holistic Facials are deeply calming and catered to your skin type using these products, along with steam and specialist massage techniques to cleanse and rejuvenate the skin. Not only are the products used at the Ojas Spa kind to your skin, but also to the surrounding environment. Fivelements Puri Ahmisa This healing hotel is located just outside Ubud in a scenic spot with the river flowing through. The spa is perched right along the riverbank so you hear the flow of water easing past as you are experiencing some incredibly therapeutic and natural treatments. This award-winning spa is unique in that not only does it have a wide variety of beauty treatments, but also healing rituals are on offer from Balinese healers and priests. This means that both body and soul can be nurtured naturally in this wonderful sustainably built bamboo spa. Acupressure with Pak Ketut is designed to trigger the body’s self-healing abilities and uses energy transfer to help heal. After starting with transference of energy, the ritual is designed to relieve both physical and mental strain. This can relieve deep-seated tension and trigger the healing process. The healing rituals harness the power of both natural herbal ingredients and energy. The beauty rituals use a wide variety of natural elements found throughout Bali. Probably one of the most healing plants is the coconut. Virgin coconut oil is one of the most healing oils, naturally antibacterial and nourishing. The Coconut Harmony treatment is a deep massage with this oil, followed by a moisturizing bath of coconut milk, the pure blended aromatic Shakti Oil and scattered with Frangipani flowers. A hewn rock bath gently sheltered by foliage looks over the flowing river below melding nature and the spa together. This wonderful bamboo structure is open meaning that it is a totally sensory experience within nature.
