There are so many amazing benefits of mineral baths. Long before advanced technology in health and sciences, people were taking mineral baths to sooth aches, pains, and rid the body of toxins.
Although mineral baths date back many centuries in other parts of the world, they became popular in American in the 1800s. The rich and famous were known to pop over to a mineral bath for some rest and relaxation like JP Morgan and other society figures.
And there is a good reason too.
The benefits of mineral baths are endless, not to mention they are the perfect way to unwind after a stressful week.
I was so excited to visit Mineral Wells last week for a relaxing dip in their micro bubble tub. If you follow me on snapchat (If not add me with username alexisroch), you got to see some fun sneak peaks of the experience.
The chemistry of Mineral Wells’ water is what drew me in, not to mention the health benefits of the mineral bath for rheumatoid arthritis.
Today’s post is all about mineral baths, but next week I want to talk in detail about this amazing crazy water and the incredible chemistry and health benefits of this local water! So stay tuned for that.
Okay, so why take a mineral bath anyway?
Soaking in mineral water has a plethora of healing advantages.
Minerals can detox the body, pulling out toxins that may be causing issues to your organs. People who smoke or drink alcohol will have many toxins being sucked out of their body.
Along with detoxing, mineral baths (especially with the use of the micro bubble tub) with really exfoliate your skin. Many times, dead skin cells will stay on your body causing flaky or dry skin. After soaking in this tub, my skin was so smooth from all the dead skin being sloughed away.
Another neat thing when you take a warm mineral bath, is your pores will open and increase the absorption of the minerals themselves. Minerals like calcium, magnesium, and potassium are great for the body and skin.
One of the biggest health benefits for me when taking a mineral bath is the soothing effect it has on rheumatoid arthritis. The warm water along with the thick mineral content helps with stiffness, pain, and inflammation. My joints felt amazing after getting out of this micro bubble tub!
Like how you feel after being in the ocean!
In addition to the health benefits internally and externally, mineral baths are great for relaxing and destressing. When we finished up, I felt incredibly calm and peaceful!
By using the micro bubble tub in the mineral water, trillions of oxygen air bubbles are released. Not only does this exfoliate, it also helps your body absorb all those minerals.
If you ever find yourself in Mineral Wells, Texas, definitely visit the Crazy Bath House. It is a really unique, old-fashioned bath house experience!
And next week I am going to be talking about this “crazy” water from Mineral Wells. Like, all the awesome chemistry behind it!
