The Art of the Bathby Sara Slavin
Synopses & Reviews
It is said that bathing connects mind and body, revives the senses, and invigorates the soul. The Art of the Bath is a sensuous guide to celebrating the ritual pleasure and healing art of bathing, offering a beautiful selection of photographs, poems, meditations, and sophisticated bathing suggestions. From the Turkish baths of Damascus and the pools of Pompeii to the steam rooms of Sweden and the bathhouses of Japan, here are the secrets to creating a steamy heaven on earth. The authors also dip their toes in outdoor baths, natural hot springs, mineral baths, mud baths, steams, and saunas. Including recipes for decadent bath-time refreshments such as Lemongrass and Thyme Tisane, and with ideas for fabulous scrubs, infusions, and aromatics, The Art of the Bath will inspire hours of heady pleasure in the old clawfoot.
