  • I did reserch and our blood vessels expand and give us better circulation, as well as release toxins through our sweat and it cleanses us while relaxing us.So taking hot baths are a healthful way to relax and cleanse yourself inside and out.

  • Probably. I know when I take baths sometimes I feel like I'm falling asleep in the tub and I have to get out because I'm so relaxed.
