After a long busy day, there's nothing better than a relaxing bath. Even better, if you can make time to create regular bath sessions, a relaxing bath routine will truly help you to unwind.
Yet, one of the most beneficial ways to make the most of this time is to use as many natural products in your routine as possible. Natural bath time products are better for the body and indeed the bath and wider environment.
Here at the bathroom showroom, we consider several natural relaxing bath products that you can add to your bath time routine with ease. Ultimately, these are the products that will ensure ultimate relaxation in the tub.
- Set the Scene With a Natural Candle Choice
The perfect way to begin the wind-down and prepare for a bath is to light a candle or two. When it comes to natural candles, beeswax candles are perfect for this task. A beeswax candle boasts several beneficial properties.
The light emitted from this is hearty and emulates the warmth of the sun. A naturally wonderful-smelling candle with a honey and nectar scent, beeswax is known to clear the air. A renewable resource, beeswax invigorates the body. Best of all it doesn't drip and lasts longer than other candle types, making sure you get the full effect throughout your bathing sessions.
- Wash Away The Day With a Natural Soap Choice
Before you immerse yourself in a relaxing bath, it’s a fantastic idea to wash your face thoroughly. By cleaning away the grime from the day, you can clear and open up your skin's pores. Also you allow the steam from your natural bath remedy to do a fabulous job of replenishing your skin.
The best natural solution when removing makeup is an organic soap bar. Coupled with ultra-soft reusable face cloths, these bars are low pH so they perfectly balance the skin. Coconut oil, almond oil, and aloe Vera are the ultimate relaxing scents for bath soap.
- Apply a Natural Homemade Relaxing Face Mask
Before stepping into the bath, apply a natural face mask. Once again, a selection of ingredients you have in the home can be applied here. In fact, this is where you can experience a variety of natural products and try out several to suit.
The items in your cupboard can all be made into delicious face masks, including:
- Natural yoghurt
- Lemon juice
Aim to leave the mask on for around 10 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water. This will give it a good chance to nourish and hydrate your face while leaving it super clean to step into your gorgeous bath.
While you’re waiting for this to dry you can get to work on filling your bath with the most luxurious of relaxing bath remedies.
- Create a Luxurious Natural Homemade Bath Remedy
The penultimate step to creating the perfect relaxing bath routine lies in the bath itself - or rather that is, in what ingredients you put into this. Fortunately, this is one area where you’re spoilt for choice!
When it comes to natural ingredients for the bath, you can create your very own homemade bath soak. This way you can soften the skin, create a sensational aromatic experience, and reduce those stress levels in just one session.
What to add to a bath for a natural bathing experience:
- Lavender essential oil - Adding a couple of drops of lavender oil to your bath ensures a thoroughly relaxing bath and one that can help heal aches and pains.
- Almond milk - This milk type works to soothe and hydrate your skin, making it a fantastic accompaniment to a relaxing soak.
- Rose petals - Not just one for the movies, scattering several fresh rose petals makes the bath look and smell great. They also work to enhance your mood by reducing feelings of anxiety.
- Himalayan salt - A most natural bath salt, Himalayan salt is a luxurious pink-looking bath salt that’s perfect for providing balance to your body’s pH levels
