For many of us, baths are that one moment in our hectic schedules where we get a chance to relax and unwind. In that time of solitude, we must treat ourselves to some self-care and love by choosing the right products to complement and elevate our bathing experience. If you haven’t tried it already, bath powders are an amazing addition to your shower time. In this article, we’ll be going through all you need to know about bath powders and their benefits.

The Brief History of Bathing

Since the beginning of time and throughout the history of human civilization, bathing was considered both a sacred and social activity. The oldest daily ritual of bathing can be traced back to ancient India where they used elaborate traditions and customs to practice personal hygiene. These are recorded pieces of evidence of this in the Grihya Sutras and are still practiced among certain communities even today.

The ancient Greeks were the first to develop showers, while the Romans expanded on this pipe system, creating expansive indoor bathhouses. Public bathhouses were essentially the ancient form of spas where they offered therapeutic massages, exercise, and recreational entertainment while also being a place where people could socialize.

Did you know that baths were such an important part of many cultures, that they even took on their terms in different areas, some being –

  • Finland- “Sauna”
  • Russia- “Banya”
  • Japan- “Misogi”
  • Turkey- “Hammam”
  • Belgium- “Spa”

Even though science was not as advanced as it is today, and people did not have concrete scientific evidence of the medical importance of bathing – cleanliness was always held highly regarded and was often connoted with power, spirituality, and even beauty. While today in modern times bathing is considered a private matter, back then it was a shared ritual for many – it was seen as a way to build and grow communal ties and human connections and relationships.
