Slimming Baths: Fun and Enjoyable Slimness Recipe

Wednesday, 12 May 2010

slimming bathsThe never ending search for the meaning of life is one of the so-called «existentialist» problems, a sensitive issue which has been bothering the human race for centuries. However, the problem of extra weight and those unsightly dimples, called cellulite, often becomes an even more sensitive issue for the fair sex. So, what do you do with your body that you don't like, and extra weight that you don't need? There are two options: either change the attitude and love you as you are, or start a war against the cellulite and excessive weight. To get rid of the unattractive «orange skin» on your bums and thighs or even less pleasant tucks on your tummy, you can exercise or keep to a diet, or choose yet another way. In order to lock in the effect of exercise and proper nutrition you should affect your «problem» areas directly. One of the most enjoyable and at the same time effective procedures for body correction is a slimming bath with essential oils.

It's no wonder that even Hippocrates, who is universally recognized as the father of medicine, was convinced that taking daily aromatic baths and massages is the shortest way to health. At the time of Hippocrates, such «aromatic baths» were a royal luxury. Baths with aromatic essential oils were highly popular in ancient Egypt. The notorious queen Cleopatra has often resorted to this beauty remedy. At that time, the bath recipe was kept secret. However, now when they ceased to be a privilege for the royals, baths are none the less enjoyable for ordinary people.

By the way, a regular warm bath can become an effective and affordable method of aromatherapy for the true hedonist as it helps you to make your body slim and your skin soft and velvety, sparing you both time and effort. Your wonderful mood will be a pleasant bonus to these changes.

What is the secret of this miraculous slimming bath? Essential oils quickly enter the lymph flow through the skin and go to all organs of the body. Plus, you inhale the essential oil vapor which is a passive inhalation. Depending on your goal, you can take a slimming bath or a anti-cellulite sitz bath.  Alternatively, you can take relaxing hand and feet baths.

Here are some tips that can make bathing comfortable and enjoyable.

  • Take baths not earlier than 2.5 - 3 hours after eating.
  • Do not use hot water for aromatic baths. Optimum water temperature is 35-38 C. Remember that sweating can prevent absorption of essential oils through the skin.
  • Before taking a bath with essential oils, take a shower. We recommend substituting soap with mustard powder, oatmeal or egging yolk. Cream and salt also will do.
  • Before adding to water, oil can be mixed with sea or table salt, honey, sour cream, cream, or milk. You should not use soap, shampoo or body lotion for this purpose. Natural products are better, since they enhance the therapeutic effect of oils.
  • Average bathing time should be between 10 minutes up to one hour. Showering after the bath is not necessary. After you've taken an aromatic bath, you should relax for 30 minutes, you can meditate or nap.
  • The amount of essential oil that you add to the water depends on its concentration and oil content. It is best to buy essential oils with purposeful action. They must be accompanied by recipes which would help you to better learn about the preparation of essential oil compositions.

Slimming baths are also used to strengthen the cell membranes, stimulate metabolism and improve skin regeneration. Essential oils skin care helps to improve blood flow to the skin cells, and tone the muscles. Aromatic baths allow you to not only enhance the effects of diet and fitness, but also improve the condition of the skin, making it smoother and softer.

Recently, turpentine baths are becoming increasingly popular. They also help you to restore normal metabolism, which is essential nowadays. Turpentine baths can affect the blood vessels; regulate blood flow to various organs, and restore permeability of blood vessels.

There are three varieties of turpentine baths: yellow, white and mixed. Turpentine baths are natural treatments which you can take around the year at your own home. The effect of turpentine bath is attributed to the properties of its main ingredient, turpentine oil, extracted from the resin of coniferous trees.

The rules of taking turpentine baths are simple. Half-fill the bath with warm water (at 37° C). The temperature must be carefully monitored with a regular thermometer. Then measure the required amount of turpentine mixture, pour it first into an enameled ware where you add hot tap water and stir. The mixture is then poured into the bath and stirred to evenly distribute the turpentine.

Then you go into the bath and add hot water three minutes later. Water temperature should be carefully monitored. In case of a white turpentine bath, solution temperature should be up to 38-39° C, and 40-42° C in case of a yellow turpentine bath. Average bathing time is from 5 to 20 minutes. Start with 5 minutes, and increase for 1-2 minutes at a time. If you experience discomfort when bathing, it is necessary to reduce the time, temperature or amount of turpentine. You should not take shower after a turpentine bath.

Turpentine baths are recommended not only for the overweight and obese people, but also for those suffering from arthritis, osteochondrosis, rheumatism and respiratory diseases (bronchitis, bronchial asthma, and pharyngitis).
