Creating your ‘Me time’ means telling your kids, spouse, room-mate, overly curious cat to take a hike and leave you alone. Leave the cell phone on mute in another room and just be one with yourself grasshopper. Its yoga but without the painful moves and expensive clothing. While you have the time already set aside- put a clay mask on. Put a hair mask on. Put a Halloween mask on, doesn’t matter. But it’s time for you to be your beautiful self.
We at Bathorium are wine people, a nice crisp cold glass of sauvignon blanc while sitting in the tub? A full bodied French Merlot after ‘world’s longest day ever’ ? We’ll take 10. If wine isn’t your thing, then tea makes an amazing bath accompaniment or a big glass of ice water to cool the body down. Our tip: be realistic. Bring the bottle with you to the tub, we all know one glass isn’t enough. See our bomb & drink pairings here
Bathroom lights are fantastic for taking that awesome selfie but they are telling your body it is Go Time- not relax time. Turn them off and light big chunky candles around the bathroom and a few on the tub ledge. The flickering light helps to mute your mind. Beware of that curious cat though… things can go array quickly if they are in the room.
Playing relaxing music or even whatever is in your Recently Added playlist that you cannot stop listening too is fine by us. Is there anything better than the soothing sounds of Norah Jones while lounging in a tub? No, no there is not. Here are our top 10 relaxing bath song must haves
Yes, Robe. Nothing ruins the post tub high than your slightly moist shower-towel. Get a thick terry cloth bath robe to slip into after the bath, you’ll thank us.
Optimal bath temperature is 35 degrees Celsius, or 94 degrees Fahrenheit for our American babes south of the border. We know you’re not going to be running for your thermometer so just use your wrist to gauge the temp. If you like a hot bath- then leave a towel in the freezer to wrap around your neck, and if you are taking a cooler tub- then throw a towel in the microwave and get it nice and toasty before putting around your neck. The drastic difference in temperatures jolt the body into your rem cycle.
The best tip of all is what you put in the water that you are going to be soaking in for the next hour makes all the difference. When your pores open due to warm temperature they absorb. Bathoriums bath bombs are designed for just this- a beneficial bath. Our babes are loaded with essential oils and butters that remove free radicals in your skin, smooth pigment, hydrate cells and replenish moisture, not to mention smell amazing and soften skin head to toe.
