The Art of Bath – 3 Bath Ideas You Will End Up Loving

The art of bath is a true luxury. Nowadays, we are always on the go; the hectic world we live in rarely allows us to spend some time for ourselves, by taking a bath for example. For a healthy ‘you time’ (that seems to be the main cause of an unhappy mood) allow yourself an hour a week and dedicate this time to homemade beauty treatments or to a relaxing and soothing bath. Or, best is that you mix them both, as advised in this article!

Bath Rule No. 1

Set a lovely scene for yourself as your bath fills. Turn off your phone to make sure that you don’t get distracted, light up some candles, play some relaxing music and let the luxurious pamper begin!

Bath Rule No. 2

Chose a bath treatment to suit your mood. If you are feeling romantic and dreamy give a try to the Coconut, Lime and Rose Tropical Soak; if you are looking for a bath to diminish the symptoms of cold and flu, then try our Therapeutic Bath against Cold; if you are looking to relax and lower muscle pain and discomfort, then give a try to our Hydrating Sore Muscle Bath.

Bath Rule No. 3

When you are finished soaking, always make sure you to rinse off in the shower to remove the sweat and toxins you released as you bathed. This is also the best time to exfoliate because the skin is softer.

Coconut, Lime and Rose Tropical Soak Bath

This is one of the most common bath recipes, that everyone must have tried, by herself or… not (wink;)

What you’ll need:

How it’s done:

Use fresh rose petals, slice the lime/lemon into rounds and when the bath is almost full add all the ingredients to the water and swish around.

Soak for at least 20 minutes or longer to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of the active botanical ingredients.

Bathing in limes, coconut milk and rose petals is extremely beneficial for dry skin, or even for sunburn and eczema.

This romantic-tropical inspired bath will keep your mind wandering into another world; your body will increase circulation and encourage detoxification while moisturizing the skin. Repeat this weekly for best results on the inside and on the outside!

 

Therapeutic Bath Soak against Cold and Flu

This is one of the most healing bath recipes ever made! Your bath will turn into a healing place in an instant! If you have all the symptoms of flu, take some time and prepare this bath. You’ll certainly feel better after. Be cautious because the detoxification process will continue after the bath, so be sure to drink lots of healthy fluids and water. The spices and the warm water will make you sweat and flush out those toxins, pollutants and impurities from your body, as well as decongest the nasal passages. By adding the Lavender Oil Elixir, which is a hydrating oil blend, you will also help the skin to stay moisturized.

What you’ll need:

  • ½ cup Epsom salt;
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger;
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon;
  • 10-15 drops of Esperée Lavander Oil Elixir (or whatever carrier oil you like);
  • 5-7 drops of eucalyptus essential oil;
  • 3-5 drops of peppermint essential oil.

How it’s done:

Fill the tub with lukewarm water if you have a fever. Add all the ingredients into your bath and soak in for at least 20 minutes. The more you soak in, the better! After you are done, wrap yourself into a fluffy blanket or bath robe and make sure you keep yourself warm in order to sweat more. Drink a big glass of water or hot tea and direct your thoughts on the path of recovery.

 

Hydrating Sore Muscle Bath Soak

This combo will draw out toxins, lower stress related hormones and balance your pH levels. If you are experiencing sore muscles or aches, a bath may help you to relax and to lower muscle pain and discomfort.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup Epsom salt;
  • 1 cup baking soda;
  • 2 spoons of apple cider vinegar;
  • ½ cup of dried lavender buds;
  • 10-15 drops of Esperée Lavander Oil Elixir (or whatever carrier oil you like + few lavender essential oil drops).

How it’s done:

Fill the tub with hot water (as hot as your body can take). Add all the ingredients into the water and soak in for at least 20 minutes or more.

 Wash away those troubles, have a soak with bubbles!
