When it comes to creating the perfect bathtime experience, it's safe to say we have plenty of expertise in the matter! In this article, we've come up with some of our own top tips to help you unwind and relax.
Baths have been a staple in relaxation and self-care for centuries, and for good reason. Immersing yourself in warm water can soothe muscles, reduce stress, and provide a sense of calmness that lasts long after you step out of the tub. If you're looking to create the ultimate relaxing bath experience, these simple tips will help you get there.
Choose the right bathtub
The first step to creating the perfect relaxing bath experience is to choose the right bathtub. Consider the size, shape and material of the bathtub you want. A large, deep bathtub will allow you to fully submerge your body, while a bathtub with rounded edges will provide a more comfortable and ergonomic fit. Additionally, a bathtub made from metallics like cast iron or copper can enhance the relaxing atmosphere of your bathroom.

Set the mood with lighting
Lighting can have a big impact on the overall mood and ambiance of your bath. Soft, warm lighting will create a relaxed and tranquil atmosphere, while dimming the lights or using candles can add a sense of intimacy. You can also try using coloured lights, LED mirrors or adding light fixtures with adjustable brightness to create the perfect lighting for your bath.
Aromatherapy is a powerful tool for relaxation, and adding essential oils to your bath can enhance the experience. Lavender, chamomile and eucalyptus are all popular choices for creating a calming atmosphere. You can add a few drops of essential oil directly to the bath water or use an aromatherapy diffuser to release the scents into the air.

Soak with Epsom salt
Epsom salt is a natural mineral that has been used for centuries to soothe sore muscles and promote relaxation. Adding a cup of Epsom salt to your bath water can help you get the most out of your bath experience. The salt works by drawing toxins from your body and helping to relieve stress and muscle aches.
