According to scientific research, a shower can reduce stress, strengthen your immune system, increase tolerance to stress, making way for clarity of thought, improve blood circulation, increase your ability to burn fat, and even aid in battling depression!
In addition however, I’ve noticed how using mint, lavender and tea tree oil scented products can have a cooling and refreshing effect which through a combination of aroma therapy and the refreshing/ cooling sensation, actually help to wake me up in the morning!
Water is healing. So many world cultures and religions use water as a symbol of re-birth or entry into their tribe. So many people claim that if they’re having a bad day, sometimes a nice shower, or a jump in the lake or swim in the pool makes them feel better. I’m absolutely one of those people!
