Ok. So I kinda figure that you all already know how to bathe, however I often here from others about how they just don’t enjoy taking baths.
As you guessed, I personally don’t get it as I’m a BIG mother f*cking fan of baths and will make any excuse to jump in one, but this comment did get me thinking.
What is it about baths that I love?
What makes taking a bath so special to me?
So here are my 7 tips to help you indulge and enjoy a blissful bath.
Set the Mood | Soften the lights and play some soothing music of your choice softly - the key being softly – you don’t want it to intrude or stimulate. My personal preference is some mellow French jazz.
Exfoliate | While your bath fills, try exfoliating your body with a dry body brush to help detoxify. There’s something so luxurious about climbing into a warm bath with your skin all tingly after brushing.
Timing | Aim to soak for at least 15 to 20 minutes. The perfect balance, I think.
Hydrate | A glass of wine is a lovely accessory in the bath, however a glass of water is so much more refreshing and hydrating, especially around the half way point when the Epsom salts kick in.
Mist | Spritzing an aromatic mist onto your face and shoulders is a brilliant mid-bath refresher too. At the moment, I’m using the Herbivore Rose Mist.
Smile | Relax and let go of your thoughts and cares. There is nowhere else you need to be right at this very moment, so sit back and enjoy.
Nourish | After hoping out of the bath, smother your skin with a body oil while it's still damp, allowing yourself a minute or two to get grounded once again. I’m currently using a delicious blend of apricot kernel oil with Frankincense essential oil
