Most people enjoy spending time in the shower because nothing beats the relaxing feel of a hot bath. For a better experience in the tub, one should use homemade bath products. Unlike commercial soaps that are full of synthetics and chemical additives, handmade bath products provide a natural soothing experience. Evidence has proved that bath products that contain synthetic chemicals have toxic and harmful effects on the body ranging from allergic skin reactions, hormonal imbalances, poor immunity into the nervous system and disruptions in fetus growth. Handmade bath products, on the other hand, nurture the skin.
