When it comes to beating a case of frazzled nerves, nothing compares to a long soak in the tub. In reality, busy schedules can get in the way of a really great therapeutic soak. So for those times when a shower will have to do, try some of these things to upgrade your experience so you can get more out of “me” time.
Indulge in your favorite scents: The scents and bubbles released from a bath bomb offer one of the truest paths to relaxation. These aromatherapy shower steamers make it easy to treat yourself to a hardy dose of your favorite scents. Simply place them where they can slowly dissolve under the shower stream.
2 cups baking soda
1/2 cup distilled water
5-8 drops of your favorite essential oil
Mix the ingredients, and press into mini-cupcake molds. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, and allow the tablets to cool completely before you pop these out.
Tip: Before adding your essential oil, separate the paste into smaller bowls so you can make an assortment to suit any mood:
Lavender: cultivates sleep and relaxation
Jasmine: optimism and joy
Geranium: centering and mood-balance
Easily and conveniently store all your shower steamers in the beautiful LINEA Shower Basket by Better Living Products.
To round out your super-relaxing shower set-up, make it a multi-sensory experience.
Install a dimmer switch. Low lights are soothing to tired and strained eyes. This is a fast and convenient substitute for candles.
Make it musical. Make a Bluetooth speaker a fixture in the bath so you can always fill your ears with the perfect playlist of soothing music or nature sounds.
Luxury towels. Life’s too short for scratchy towels. Spring for a set or two of something that feels plush and velvety against your skin.
