Bathtubs are one of the glamorous parts of plumbing, offering a space for peace and tranquility.
When was the last time you treated yourself to a soothing bath?
Here are a few tips that will help you turn your bathroom into a relaxing oasis!
- Essential Oils
They are known for having powerful healing properties that can be used for alleviating everything from headaches to inflammation. You have hundreds of options available to you, but here are the most common for stress-relief and relaxation:
Lavender: has a fresh floral scent that relieves stress and promotes sleep.
Bergamot: has a beautiful citrusy aroma and it helps to stimulate energy and promote a sense of well-being.
Peppermint: known for it’s ability to sharpen focus, this crisp scent energizes your mind and awakens your body.
Chamomile: well known for promoting restful sleep, this oil also lifts your mood and relaxes your entire body.
Just a few drops of any these oils will significantly improve your bath experience.
- Epsom Salts
Almost every recipe for a beautiful bath includes a few cups of Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate). Generally, most of us are deficient in magnesium and it is important to replenish our supply. Magnesium has a big impact on mood, energy, nerve function, and many other processes in the body. Many professionals use magnesium to soothe muscles and improve overall health.
- By adding it to your bath, you will experience benefits such as:
- Soothing sore muscles
- Increased energy
- Reduced stress
- Softer skin (exfoliation)
Add two to three cups of Epsom salts in a standard-size tub full of warm water and soak for at least 15 minutes.
This is all about mood lighting. Soft light has a subduing affect on the mind and will calm you down. A dimly lit room will be less stimulating and add a touch of luxury to your space. Choose scented candles with a touch of lavender, vanilla, or sandalwood for an enhanced experience.
Picture you soaking away in your gorgeous clawfoot tub with the sweet scent of bergamot and the flickering of a candle, amazing isn’t it?
