Taking a hot bath is a great way to wind down after a stressful day. It should be a ritual for anyone who leads a stressful life. And while hot water and bubbles are a great way to take your bath, you could do much more. Turn your bath into a stress-free paradise using these easy to find ingredients.
Bath salts are great for your skin, we all know that. They contain minerals and nutrients that help keep your skin soft and healthy. The warm water open your pores, allowing the minerals in. They also have great detoxifying abilities, and who doesn’t need their skin detoxified in Egypt? You can buy bath salts, or make your own by mixing Epsom salts, sea salt and some baking soda.
You can use them on their own, mix them with homemade bath salts, or buy bath salts infused with essential oils. Aromatherapy has wonderful results especially when it comes to stress relief. Try lavender essential oil to help you relax and get ready for bed. Chamomile essential oil is also very relaxing, and is said to help with depression, have anti-inflammatory and anti-infectious agents, among other benefits. If you have stressed, tight muscles, we suggest Satsuma essential oil. The delicious, fruity scent is only one of its many benefits. It is said it has antispasmodic agents that help relax muscles and relieve stress. It is also widely used as a main ingredient in recipes to reduce stretch marks!
Using candles for lighting is great for relaxing. And if those candles are scented, it’s even better. The scent derived from candles is usually softer than that of incense and air fresheners. So light up your candles and turn off the light next time you’re about to take a relaxing bath. You can buy scented candles at a number of outlets.
