Seaweed Bath, Ireland
You might think a fondness for seaweed is a quintessentially 🇯🇵 Japanese thing, but the Irish have been eating and bathing in it since the 12th century. Thought to soften skin and improve circulation, Ireland 🇮🇪 was home to some 300 ‘seaweed spas’ at the beginning of the 20th century.
The process was fairly straightforward: pour ♨️ hot water onto a heaping pile of slimy seaweed and slide in for a healing soak.
