Is there any better way to end a self-care Sunday than with a relaxing bath?

Chances are you've been in a bath or two during your life, so our goal is to take our suds to the next level. Keep reading to create an at-home spa experience that will keep you relaxed for days.

Mix & Match Scents

Adding bubbles and candles is Bath 101. To take your bath to the next level, pick two complementary scents to give it an aromatherapy twist. If you're winding down for bed, try rose candles with lavender bubbles. If you are feeling stressed, try lemon suds and peony candles. Avoid an overstimulated scent headache and sink into the relaxation.

Make Yourself a Refreshing Beverage

Sitting in a hot bath is a surefire way to dehydrate yourself. Before you jump into the water, blend a delicious and healthy smoothie or pour a glass of cucumber water for a truly luxurious experience.

Toss in Two Cups of Epsom Salt

Epsom salt soothes sore muscles and draws toxins from the body. Sprinkle some in as you run hot water for the best effect. Bye bye, sore muscles!

Rewarding myself for working on a public holiday (and thinking I should do this everyday ????). I could get used to this! ????????✖️

Curate a Perfect Bath Mix

A relaxing mix adds ambiance to your relaxation. Avoid getting your phone wet by investing in waterproof speakers that can float around in the tub with you!

 

Set Aside the Electronics

It's hard to put down your phone and turn off Netflix, but give it a try while you're soaking. Grab your favorite magazine or a book that's been on your shelf forever and revel in being off the grid.
