You’ve probably always dreamed of having the perfect bath spa experience. With the right bathtub and other supplies, you can easily create your own relaxing and rejuvenating environment, no matter where you live or what type of bathroom you have access to in your home. To help you get started, here are some things you need for the perfect bath spa experience
1) Epsom Salt
Epsom salt is magnesium sulfate, magnesium being one of those minerals, along with calcium and potassium, which are extremely important to our bodies. Not only can magnesium help lower your blood pressure and stress levels, but research suggests it can also help relieve aches and pains in muscles. For a warm soak that’s sure to relax both your mind and body, try filling up your tub with some Epsom salt.
2) A Bathrobe
Wrapping yourself in a fluffy bathrobe after a nice long soak will make your skin even softer, thanks to all that water retention. So, what are you waiting for? Add it to your shopping list. You’ll want one that’s soft and absorbent, with sleeves long enough to cover your hands when they’re submerged in water. Some of our favorites include: The Hotel Collection Luxurious Bath Robe (pictured above) and The North Face Thermoball Full-Zip Hooded Down Jacket. Both run about $100-$150 depending on size and color options.
3) The Perfect Music
In terms of music, it’s important to create an atmosphere conducive to relaxation. The right music can go a long way towards helping you feel Zen. In fact, research suggests certain types of classical music can actually slow your heart rate and blood pressure, and help you relax. If music isn’t really your thing, try a guided meditation app.
4) A Bathtub
A bathtub is essential to any home and will become a staple of your daily routine. With a bathtub, you can easily relax while in warm water, great if you want to cleanse your body while rejuvenating your mind. Many types of tubs come in many shapes and sizes, so it’s important to purchase one that fits within your budget as well as with your home décor.
5) Fresh Flowers
Bringing a bunch of fresh flowers from your local farmer’s market or flower shop is one of my favorite ways to make a room feel more relaxing and soothing. Not only are they visually pleasing, but flowers also make your home smell so much better, even if it’s just for a few days. My favorites are roses and peonies, but any bright colorful ones do wonders for a space.
6) Scented Candles
If there’s anything I love almost as much as fresh flowers, it’s candles. I can never have enough of them.
