Creating a relaxing and pampering bath-time experience in your own home is easier than you think. Take advantage of the most exclusive handmade products to create a home spa where even the most demanding of us can discover peace and restoration. A home pamper experience is a fast and cost-effective way to reduce stress and also to revive and rejuvenate the body. We take a look at some key products for home pampering.
Bath salts have been used for over 5000 years and are designed to mimic the health-boosting salts in the sea or minerals in hot springs. Mineralized salts are an ultimate pampering tool, making the body lighter in the water and helping with relaxation. Bath salts can also be infused with essential oils such as lavender, which helps with relaxation, or oils that are known to energise such as ginger. Bath salts which contain natural minerals such as Himalayan salt, with additional natural ingredients such as tea tree, olive oil and lime, offer benefits not only to the mind but also to the body. Quality handmade aromatherapy bath salts should not contain any artificial colours, soap or alcohol, which are all known to irritate the skin. When you shop for handmade bathroom products online in the UK, look out for products which are both ethical and vegan-friendly.
Soy or beeswax candles infused with essential oils can also help create a hugely relaxing environment. The light from a candle is universally considered more relaxing and atmospheric than that of an electric light, whilst the scent of aromatherapy candles can help enormously when it comes to a relaxing, pampering experience.
Essential oils, also known as aromatherapy oils, are made with concentrated levels of natural ingredients. Essential oils can be poured directly into the bath, and the fragrances are said to enter the body through the skin and the respiratory system, boosting mood and reducing stress. The most popular include lavender for relaxation, rosemary for clarity and eucalyptus for energy.
Not just for children, a quality handmade bath bomb can turn an average bath into a pampering experience. Bath bombs that contain natural salts and essential oils work in a similar way to bath salts. The fizzing action as the bomb melts away in the water adds to the relaxing experience. Look out for bath bombs which contain natural fragrances and colours.
