How to make your Bath time special (and your skin softer!)

Coming home after a long day and just want to relax in a hot bath, but feeling like something is missing? There are so many things you can add to your bath to enhance the relaxation experience and truly unwind. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  1. Epsom salts: These are a staple in many people's bath routines because they are known to relax the muscles and help with stress relief. They are also a natural detoxifier, so you'll feel refreshed and rejuvenated after your bath.

  2. Essential oils: Adding a few drops of essential oils to your bath can add a lovely scent and provide some therapeutic benefits. Lavender oil is a great choice for relaxation, while peppermint oil can help with headaches and muscle tension.

  3. Herbs: Similar to essential oils, adding herbs like chamomile or lavender to your bath can add a soothing aroma and provide calming effects. You can either add the herbs directly to your bath or create a tea bag with them and place it in the tub.

  4. Baking soda: If you have sensitive skin or just want to add some extra soothing properties to your bath, baking soda can be a great addition. It can help to balance pH levels and soften the water.

  5. Milk: You may have heard of the old-fashioned trick of adding milk to your bath to soften your skin. It's true! The lactic acid in milk can help to gently exfoliate and moisturize the skin.

  6. Bubble bath: While this may seem like a no-brainer, sometimes it's nice to just kick back and enjoy a bubble bath. There are many options available with different scents and moisturizing properties, so you can find one that suits your needs.

  7. Candles and music: Setting the mood is key when it comes to relaxation, and adding some candles and soothing music to your bath can really help set the tone. Dim the lights, light a few candles, and put on some calming music to create a peaceful atmosphere.


No matter what you add to your bath, the important thing is to take some time for yourself and relax. Whether you're using Epsom salts or a bubble bath, the goal is to allow yourself to fully unwind and let go of the stress of the day. So go ahead and add a few of these items to your bath and let the relaxation begin!
