Your home is your private sanctuary and somewhere you should be able to retreat to in complete comfort. With the right approach, your bathroom could be your own personal spa, a place where you can relax in perfect solitude to improve your overall mood and personal wellbeing.
Achieving Ultimate Relaxation
Closing the bathroom door, before lighting candles, dimming the lights and soaking in a warm bubble bath is a treat we should allow ourselves regularly — or daily, if possible.
According to research, a daily bath helps beat depression, while warm water has many positive effects on our bodies; including relieving stress, tension and improving our overall physical and mental health.
Lighting Scented Candles
Turning down the lights and burning scented candles is the ideal way to relax your mood.
For quick indulgence, simply light few candles, placing them around the edge of the bathtub, or on any clean, clutter-free surfaces around your bathroom turned spa.
Diffusers and Soothing Scents
Diffusers are great for bringing the aroma of your favourite essential oils into the bathroom, with lavender, lemongrass, tea tree, eucalyptus and rosemary all having many soothing benefits.
Once your diffuser or candles are ready, simply relax - perhaps reading a book or just closing your tired eyes in meditation - as you soak in the warm water.
Decluttering and Feng Shui
Clutter has a negative effect on our wellbeing, so start your tidy-up by removing non-essential items when trying to create the very best spa bathroom you can.
According to the principles of feng shui, positive energy is channeled through a well-ordered environment, so aim for a clean, tidy room that you enjoy spending time in.
Mindfulness when decluttering will help you create your own home spa-like retreat that’s functional, luxurious and perfect for saying goodbye to stress during a revitalising soak in the bath.
Storage isn't the first thing you’ll consider when it comes wellbeing, yet it’s these things you need to consider - decluttering makes us feel good about almost everything.
Improve your Showering Experience
Upgrading your own bathroom shower head provides a superior washing experience.
A spa-inspired bathroom is only complete with a shower head that’s capable of creating a powerful and invigorating spray to suit your mood, or something more soothing or relaxing.
Drink Herbal Teas
Complete your bathroom spa treatment with a herbal tea straight after a warm bath, with flavours like peppermint, lemon and ginger proven to help the detoxification process.
A bubble bath, candles, herbal tea, facemask and relaxing music are the perfect antidote to a stressful day, and when you want to get away from everything for a little while.
