Bath proving

Introduction
Bath provings are a good way to do provings. They give in a relative short time like half an hour or an hour a picture with reliable aspects.

Format
A bath proving is done by adding some of the essential oil of the plant to a bath of the prover. The prover meditates on the remedy and receives an impression from the smell and touch of the oil. This can be a very impressive experience, giving good indications for the remedy.

Advantages
1. Relatively few investment is needed. With 1 prover one can get a picture in about an hour.
2. The resulting picture is reasonable. It can give a strong emotional and sensational aspect of the remedy picture.
3. The signal of the remedy is quite strong.
4. There is mostly not very much noise in the proving as the attention is focused on the remedy by way of the strong smell and taste of the remedy. The essence of the remedy in a way penetrates the whole body of the prover.

Disadvantages
1. The result is often fragmentary and lacking many aspects.
2. The proving can be one-sided as it is dependent on one prover.
