    Because there is nothing better than basking in the kind embrace of nature while breathing in her most fragrant perfume in its concentrated form smile

      I laughed because most natural hot springs smell like sulfur.  Few people consider that "fragrant".

      Well, I'm well aware of sulfur water- I myself am hardly bothered by it anymore. I am referring to the general fresh air, bit of confusion I guess lol. When you live out in nature and have well water? The smell of sulfur, well, you get used to it!

    1) Soaking in hot water relaxes the muscles and soothes jangled nerves.
    2) The minerals dissolved in the natural hot springs makes the water more dense, thus magnifying the effect.
    3) Those dissolved minerals do wonders for the skin.  You usually come out with it glowing.  I've done mud packs with the clay mixed with hot spring water, and the results were marvelous!
    4) Most natural hot springs are located in areas of natural beauty, so you get to enjoy the scenery during your soak.
    5) You can actually drink from some of them!  I once visited Alum Rock Park in San Jose, CA.  There used to be a bathhouse there, but it closed for environmental reasons.  They now have a self-guided tour, and there's a naturally carbonated spring you can drink from!  True, it tasted a little sulfuric, but you can mix it with Crystal Lite powder to mask that flavor.
    As you can tell, I'm a HUGE fan of hot springs!

      Hi Say Yes to Life: Thank you for your answers! Yes it is sad that some of these places are not easily accessible and the waters are not in their pristine condition. They do have many wonderful therapeutic properties.
