to Take a Ginger Bath
Deborah J. Allen
you want a real treat, try a ginger bath. It is marvelous!
like to take one before going to bed once or twice a week. I sleep so incredibly
well. I always do, but the ginger bath cleanses the body (internally as well as
externally) and relaxes you. I wake up feeling so relaxed and so great.
take a ginger bath, put approximately 1/8 cup of ginger (either grated or powder
from the supermarket) under the running tap. Run pretty warm water in at first
and get in the tub. Once in the tub, let enough hot water run in to make the water
pretty hot. Lie back and relax or read for about 40 minutes.
I'm not going to read, I like to light a candle and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere.
Lot of times I like to take advantage of the 40-minutes to read.
about 20 minutes, you begin to sweat.
the 40 minutes or so, get out of the tub, wrap up in a large towel or sheet and
crawl into the bed and cover up with your bedcovers. You will usually sweat for
approximate an hour.
method really helps sweat toxins out of your body.
you don't want to get into the bed wet, you can lie on the floor.
even pours out of my scalp.
like to go to bed because I fall asleep almost immediately and don't wake up until
morning. Since you are wrapped up in the sheet or towel, your bed doesn't really
get very wet. To my daughters and me, it is worth it.
you wake up later on and feel the need to you can place a large dry towel under
you and put on a warm robe so that your cover sheet isn't against you if it is
can vary what you do to your likes/needs.
night I didn't even use the ginger and still had great results. I could hardly
believe it. I fell asleep on my back and slept that way all night. I never
can sleep on my back, but I was so relaxed that I was able to. That was
great because sometimes I sleep on my arm wrong and wake up with a sore shoulder
when I sleep on my side.
our daughter comes in for college breaks, guess what is one of the first things
can hardly wait to take a ginger bath.
