The Floral Bath Take Over

Pinterest has become one of my favorite apps to use, when it comes to looking for ideas for food, clothing, decorations and promoting your work. But I also find it as a place of peace. Sometimes just looking a pictures and adding them to my boards are relaxing.

In the process of my browsing I’ve began to come across a lot of pictures of women having photo shoots in tubs filled with flowers. Now I’m a girl that loves a bath, especially during those times your body is sore, or you’ve had a long day and want a place to clear your mind and relax. My baths have always consisted of bubbles, some oil and if I really need to relax epsom salt (lavender).

Now could I imagine filling my bath water with flowers? Maybe for a romantic occasion but that’s about it. I barely know much about flowers because at one point I didn’t like them, though I am coming around, so, I wouldn’t even know where to start. The main question I had with the takeover of the floral bath was, is it for looks or are there actually benefits to them?

Here’s what I found – adding flowers and other herbs to your bath have healing benefits. I will list a few benefits of different flowers/herbs. Maybe it’ll convince some of you to turn it into a ritual and even make a cute Instagram post out of it.

Rose: Hydrates the skin

Sweet Jasmine: are you in a mood and looking to be uplifted? Sweet Jasmine is for you.

Lotus Flowers: Softens skin and reduces anxiety

Orchid: Reduces fine lines, wrinkles and contains antioxidant properties

Rosemary Petals: Boost blood circulation

Peony: Helps tone the skin

Looking for more of a spa feel, add milk into your bath. Milk baths help clean and exfoliate the skin, leaving you feeling as soft as a teddy bear.

Thanks to all of the benefits, physically and spiritually I believe floral/herbal baths are the new thing and it’s about time I give it a try myself. Have you had a chance to experience the greatness?

Have you ever been so upset that sometimes the only way to get over it is to destroy what once was, like lighting flame to a picture? Hoping that bringing that moment to ashes will also wipe every memory like you were in a scene of MIB (Men in Black) but nothing happens. I’ve been there! I can remember being only 16-years-old when I had my first break-up. I swore that I’d be healed once I erased every picture of us off of MySpace and ripped up the remaining but I was wrong. Actually, till this day I regret getting rid of those pictures because those were memories and good ones. Taking out my anger on those pictures weren’t going to help me let go.

I’m over it! SEX… I’m just completely over it.

Like men, women get bored too and to fill that void we occasionally use sex. It feels good (for the most part) and it’s a quick release. Let’s face it, sex takes the stress away and it can be pretty damn fun depending on who you’re vibing with.  I’m 110% guilty. I find myself feeling lonely with nothing to do and it makes it easy to turn to sex for a little excitement. The bad part about it is in order to get the sex I start to rekindle old relationships with people I stopped dealing with for obvious reasons but because I loved what they had to offer in that particular area I always found my way back. I also knew if I called they weren’t going to deny me. Not to toot my own horn but *beep beep* I got that bomb that keeps the boys coming back. Anyways they may have been jerks but I knew the sex was going to be amazing. My logic was why go out and find someone new who may have the potential to disappoint me in the bedroom when I can just go for what I know?
