A beer bath is usually a warm bath infused with beneficial beer ingredients, hops and barley. The bath blend usually has herbs that also offer wellness effects too.

Hops are flowers from a Humulus lupulus plant that add flavor and aroma to beer. Malted barley is the grain used to make beer.

These ingredients have nutrients, antioxidants, and vitamins that are good for your mind and body. They also have topical effects, which is why many people enjoy taking beer baths.

Beer’s malted barley is known to smooth collagen and elasticity, reducing fine lines and wrinkles for skin that looks and feels great. Bathing in beer ingredients and warm water also nourishes and hydrates the skin, which is necessary for fighting premature aging.

Pain & Stiffness Relief

A beer bath is an effective solution if you experience muscle or joint pain or stiffness. Warm water and beer’s nutrients reduce inflammation and increase blood flow to help you feel and move better. It also helps release pressure pushing down on your joints.

This is why experts also recommend warm baths for athletes and people with arthritis.

Better Circulation

When you’re taking a bath, your blood vessels expand, improving your circulation. When blood and oxygen flow easily, your organs can function appropriately for optimal health, improving your day-to-day life and illness recovery or prevention.

Hormone Balance

Warm baths alone can help balance your hormones, and bathing in beer’s beneficial ingredients offers additional benefits. Beer baths can help you decrease stress hormones and release more happiness and wellness chemicals.

Balanced hormones help just about all parts of your health, including sleep, weight, fertility, and mood.
