comforts on the path-Sake bath
Another amazing product to share! Ooooh and it’s a good one.
Detoxifying the body is very important. Drinking water is the simplest way to ensure that your body’s systems are constantly replenishing and eliminating toxins. Daily pollution, chemicals found in foods and helping the immune system to fight illness are all part of the detoxifying process. Bathing is an ancient way to speed this process. Working up a nice sweat and releasing all of the bad stuff has been practiced by almost every culture throughout history.
The great company “Fresh” has developed a bath soak that has become a necessity in my house. The Sake Bath soak uses 50% real Sake along with real ginger, pine, and real peach extract for a toxin pulling, gloriously aromatic experience. Apparently, the idea for the soak came from the tradition of Geishas. They would bathe in sake and mix it with real peaches for a bath that left their reknowned skin soft and purified.
The liquid itself is a light amber colour and is somewhat close to syrup in it’s consistency. You tip the bottle and pour the liquid under running water and it foams slightly. A beautiful faint peach smell permeates the air. Once in the bath, you will feel a lovely light coating on your skin underwater. Sake elevates the body’s temperature, so you begin to sweat and the detoxifying begins. 20 mins later, take a moderately cool shower-using no soap to allow the benefits of the bath to thoroughly sink in. I always feel rested and energized after my Sake soaks.
It’s definitely not cheap-a bottle runs around $80- but you use very little per bath and my full bottle usually last 3 months or so. Treat yourself and enjoy. Or give as a gift to someone who would love it. Breathe deep and sweat it out!
