Ginger Milk Bath
Ever the versatile ingredient, ginger root is used extensively in Chinese cuisine and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to warm the body and lift the spirit. Its warm essence can help alleviate join pain, reduce inflammation, and get stagnating "chi" flowing again. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger, which is responsible for much of its medicinal properties. Our special, restorative bath will administer a powerful sweat and detox while fragrant breaths of ginger embrace your senses.
Our Ginger Milk Bath is an ideal way to sweat toxins out when you don't have time to head to a sauna. Ginger has amazing, natural thermogenic properties which increase the temperature of the body and generate heat inside it; thus, assisting with blood and warmth circulation in the body. In TCM, ginger is used as an ancient healing remedy to restore “yang” and expel cold energy. A hot ginger bath is traditionally used to help relieve aches and pains. We’ve elevated the traditional formula for a truly warming and therapeutic bathing experience. Cocoa butter and soy protein are added to the mix for extra skin nourishment and softness.
For mindful use:
May add directly to bath or place into the muslin cloth for easy cleanup,
Use 1/3 cup to hot bath water while adjusting the temperature as needed,
Bathe for about 20-30 minutes for full benefits,
Expect to sweat for 30 minutes to an hour after the bath,
Soy grains can be used to exfoliate skin by rubbing gently in circular motions,
Rinse your body off with warm water in the shower at the end of the bath,
It works wonderfully as a relaxing pre-bedtime ritual to encourage better sleep (you will sweat for 1-2 hours afterwards and wake up reinvigorated),
Only take this bath once a week and do not stay in the bath for longer than 30 minutes,
Use with caution if you have a ginger allergy and/or sensitive skin (patch test or try bathing for 15 rather than the full 30 minutes).
Align your “chi”:
Ginger root contains powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
Cocoa butter contains high concentrations of antioxidant compounds that include fatty acids: oleic acid, palmitic acid, and stearic acid. These fatty acids are beneficial for the body and aid in neutralizing free radicals in the skin. Skin is hydrated, nourished, and elasticity is improved.
Soy protein provides moisturizing and antioxidant benefits to the skin and helps with renewing dead skin cells.
Elderflower is added for "yin" to balance the abundance of "yang" in the ginger. Containing anti-oxidants that protect against sun and other free-radical damage, it is packed with vitamins A, B, C, E and helps with blood circulation.
