5 Ways to Prepare a Relaxing Bath

Credits: Wikihow.com

Today’s post is by a wonderful person, John Smith from luxiobath – A site related to bathroom niche. John reviews some of the top rated bathroom essentials such as shower heads, Sink Faucets, Luxurious Towels and more.

It was actually john from whom i got inspiration to start my very own website. In addition he also helped me with the technical stuff initially ( such as installing themes and tweaking wordpress site ) Anyways,

Here’s John…

To keep this post as to the point as possible, i’ve divided this post into 5 short blurbs.

1.) Clean yourself before the bath.

Sitting in a bathtub filled with dirty water is not fun. Make sure you shower before the bath so you can have a clear head while trying to relax in the tub. Not only will you feel much cleaner but your body will be much more used to the water temperature when you are finally ready to take the bath. Also, make sure the bathroom is neat and clean before you do anything. The point of the bath is to relax, looking around at a messy or dirty bathroom is going to be very distracting.

2.) Set the Mood

You want your bathroom to be a place of zen while you are in the tub. Natural bath products, such as essential oils, have some sleep inducing qualities that can set a very peaceful mood for your bath. Make sure you have some type of soft, relaxing music playing(at a safe distance away from the tub). Soft music can slow down your heart rate and relax your entire body.You can even dim the lights or light some candles. Do whatever makes you feel very relaxed and calm.

3.) Get Comfortable & Make Sure You have An Amazing Shower

As i directly review bath products, i think an amazing shower head can make a huge difference between an ‘okay’ shower and a ‘great’ one. So be sure you have the right water pressure at home. Not to high and not too low. In addition, you could also get a rain shower head if you want a rainfall experience – Many people do find that great. And if your water pressure is low, you can read the high pressure shower heads guide on my site to buy the best showers.

In order to relax, you must get as comfortable as possible. First, you must make sure that the temperature of the water is just right. Make sure it is not too hot and not too cold. If the temperature is off, you’re going to be thinking about it the whole time.

That will not make for a relaxing time. If you want to lean your head back while in the tub, you can not just lean it back onto the hard tile behind your tub. There are inflatable pillows you can purchase at various stores. You can now lay back in the perfect temperature with a pillow and just soak it all in.

4.) Bring a Book and Some Food

Of course, you want this to be a relaxing time, but that does not mean you must have your eyes closed the whole time and act as if you are meditating. Bring in a book to read while you’re in the bath. Reading takes your mind off of life’s daily stresses and allows your mind to drift away a little bit. Get yourself a bowl of fruit or some snacks and put them on a stool that is just within your reach. You do not want to get hungry or thirsty while you’re in the tub. Indulge a little bit and let loose.

5.) Lay Out a Soft Towel and Some Comfy Clothes

Make sure you have all of your drying materials and clothes ready for when you’re ready to get out. Getting out of the tub and having everything right there and ready for you to finish up will be the perfect finisher to your relaxing bath.

How to Take an Aromatherapy Bath?

Aromatherapy baths have proven benefits.

The essential oils used are therapeutic to both the body and mind.

In order to gain the full benefits of aromatherapy baths, you must set aside the time to learn about each essential oil and the type of healing it provides. For example, lavender essential oil baths can reduce anxiety as well as help with a sore throat. Each oil serves its own unique purpose and knowing what each can and cannot help with is important.

Once you have learned what each essential oil does and you have chosen your oil, you will notice that they are extremely concentrated and have a very potent smell. Pour some of the oil into a separate container and dilute it with carrier oils. Typically, the ratio you want is about eight to nine drops of essential oil to one fluid ounce of carrier, but you can use your discretion here. Carrier oils also can vary in their therapeutic benefits.

Choose which one sounds the best for you or your combination of oils. Once you have your diluted oil, test how your skin reacts to the oil. Using a either a cotton ball or swab, dab a small amount of the oil on the inside of your elbow or your wrist. Every hour or so, check the area and try to take notice of any irritation. If there’s no irritation within sixteen to twenty-four hours, you’re all set to start preparing your aromatherapy bath!

Turn on your water and find a temperature that isn’t too hot but is hotter than just warm. About one hundred degrees fahrenheit is ideal. Once you get the right temperature, start putting the essential oils into the bath. Make sure you put them in the water as the tub is filling up but make sure not to add all of it at once. Spread out when pouring it in so the oil is evenly distributed.

While you’re waiting for the bath to be ready, create a relaxed mood within your bathroom. Light candles, play light music, dim the lights, make yourself as comfortable as possible.

The last thing to do before you’re ready to take a relaxing aromatherapy bath is to prepare your body and skin. Carefully with a dry shower brush or sponge, brush your skin gently but firmly. This removes the outer, dead layer of skin you have all over your body and even loosens up your muscles. The oils will now easily infuse into you and enhance the benefits of your bath.

Once you have set the mood, prepared your mind and body and the tub is filled, slowly step into your bath, then slowly lay yourself down into the water. Relax yourself, notice the aromas and music, enjoy your relaxing aromatherapy bath.
