A vast majority of homeowners would agree that their bathroom is their most favorite room of the house. Regardless if you live in a small rental unit that has a smaller sized shower or if you live in a large home with a luxury bathroom, you use the bathroom as a place where you prepare yourself for work, relax in a luxurious bath, or just to clean yourself up.
Interestingly enough, statistics show that while baths are popular amongst children, most adults believe that they don’t need to take a bath. Research suggests that you stand to gain several physical and health benefits by taking a bath as opposed to taking a shower. In fact, bathing can help to cleanse your skin, reduce inflammation, and it can encourage accelerate healing. Just turn that bathtub faucet on and let that water flow.
Maybe the reason you may not take baths as often as you should is simply because your backroom lacks some essential bathing items. In this post, we take a look at some things that can help to improve your bathing experience.
Bath salts are essentially crushed-up minerals that have been used as a beneficial bathing product for several decades. Bath salts were designed to transform your bathroom into a hot spring or mineral bath. Besides the fact that they are fragrant and provide a more luxurious experience, they have excellent therapeutic benefits such as encouraging relaxation and exfoliation.
More and more consumers have been gravitating towards using bath bombs as opposed to bath salts because of their unique colorful designs and their dramatic visual effects. A bath bomb can be best described as being a circular object which is filled with ingredients such as bicarbonate soda, Epsom salts, and citrus. Bath bombs can help to add to the overall atmosphere of your luxury bath. Some of the different types of bath bombs that you can get include:
- Cannabis bath bomb
- Aromatherapy bath bomb
- Bubble bath bomb
- Glitter bath bomb
Oftentimes, people confuse bath sheets with bath towels and assume that they’re all the same. However, most people typically use bath sheets that are larger and provide greater coverage. Bath towels are smaller in size but offer increased absorbency. Having a fluffy and absorbent bath towel will help to provide a certain degree of luxury when you aren’t in the water anymore.
Many homeowners made the mistake of neglecting their flooring when they took baths. The end result of this was that they ended up with mold infestations and rotted flooring. Regardless if you have hardwood or tile flooring in the bathroom, you need to protect it from liquids. A bath mat can help absorb excess water as well as preventing it from soaking into the seams of your flooring.
A nice hot bath can help to relieve sore joints and muscles. One of the things you can do to improve the therapeutic value of your baths is to add essential oils to your bath. For instance, lavender oil has been known to improve blood circulation and treat migraines and headaches. Lemon oil has strong antifungal, antimicrobial, and antiseptic properties. Meanwhile, eucalyptus oil can help to clear your nasal cavities as well as relieve pains and aches.
One of the most affordable things you can do to transform your bathtub into a spa is to get a bath pillow. Path pillows can be attached to the front or back end portions of your tub to which you can use as a headrest. All bath pillows come with suction cups which help to ensure that they don’t slip from the surface of the tub to the water. They are water-resistant too.
Most bathrooms have harsh lighting. Scented candles can help to enhance your bathing experience by providing ambient lighting. Ambient lighting helps to ensure good illumination levels without instances of glares which can take away from your bathing experience. Some scented candles are made with scented oils which evoke an emotional response when they are inhaled.
Sprinkling rose petals can help to create an atmosphere of luxury and love. Rosewater can also help to brighten your complexion, clean pores, hydrate the skin and alleviate itchy skin.
