If you don't have a bath tub at home, keep these tips in mind for your next hotel staycation.
Homemade Bath Salt
Making your own bath salt makes a huge difference. First of all, it's much cheaper because you can add as much and as many premium plant oils as you please. And did you know that sea salt is really cheap? Mix an assortment of homemade bath salts to keep handy.
Use pure sea salt and a mix of premium oils like cold pressed coconut oil, avocado oil, apricot oil, jojoba oil, argan oil. Add in a generous amount of essential oil. Mix and match oils to play around with the scents.
These are great at softening the water and moisturizing your skin with vitamins and minerals. Add your homemade bath salt generously to the bath, it makes all the difference.
Research online about the different effects of these oils.
They can either invigorate you, relax you, give you a pleasant and romantic experience or a cooling feeling on the skin for hot days. Choose something minty to feel that tingly sensation like spearmint or peppermint. Use lavender to relax. Rosemary invigorates. Bergamot is very romantic. Juniper berry is refreshing.
Use a shower gel to create foam as the tub is filling up with water. Add it before the bath salt.
Create The Ambience
As you'll be sitting in the bath for 15 minutes, the ambience matters. Always light a scented candle. It really makes a difference to the atmosphere. Watch Netflix on your portable mobile device or get a playlist from Spotify.
For your safety, keep these away from the water. Put it safely on a ledge or on the floor.
Choose whatever music or show that suits your mood. It doesn't always have to be something relaxing or romantic.
