The benefits of the float bath

Sensory deprivation effects

The water in a sensory deprivation tank is heated to skin temperature and nearly saturated with Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate), providing buoyancy so you float more easily.

You enter the tank nude and are cut off from all outside stimulation, including sound, sight, and gravity when the tank’s lid or door is closed. As you float weightless in the silence and darkness, the brain is supposed to enter into a deeply relaxed state.

Sensory deprivation tank therapy is said to produce several effects on the brain, ranging from hallucinations to enhanced creativity.”

Discover 5 anti-stress plants to infuse!

Stress and anxiety can cause symptoms such as irritability, fatigue, insomnia and a lack of concentration. To soothe the effects, some remedies based on natural relaxing and soothing ingredients are then effective as anti-stress to help us release the accumulated tensions and find a balance between body and mind.

Here are 5 anti-stress plants with therapeutic properties.

1. Chamomile: If we often find herbal teas made with chamomile on the shelves of our grocery stores, it is because this plant is widely used around the world for its soothing virtues. This medicinal plant has relaxing, slightly sedative and antispasmodic properties. It allows relaxation of the body, promotes digestion, and has antiseptic, analgesic and disinfectant effects that facilitate the expulsion of toxins.

To use it: Infuse a teaspoon of this plant in simmering water for no more than five minutes and drink this infusion a few minutes before going to bed.
