A Space to Rejuvenate Your Senses
When you need to unwind or take a load off, where do most people go in their homes? If you guessed the bathroom then pat yourself on the back, lock the bathroom door and fill up the tub because we are going to create a personal oasis within your home with simple and effective restoring treatments.
Relaxation can be created through sound, ambiance, smells and texture to help you unwind both mentally and physically in your home spa.
Gentle calming music can indeed soothe the savage soul. Classical Baroque, light rock, bump and grind, easy listening rock or even some cool jazz can set the mood and lift your spirit.
This is your comfort zone. Lower the lights or turn them off altogether and light some fragrant mood enhancing candles to create a feeling of twilight as the dancing candle flames shimmer off the warm snug bath water in a primitive flickering dance of bliss and jubilation.
Ah yes, the bath tub, the focal point of our affections in your home spa, so many ways to caress your body with milks, bath salts and lotions. It is so easy to lose yourself in its comforting reassuring arms.
The Recipe for Tantalizing Touch
Your skin will feel soft and smooth begging to be cuddled. Touch is an important ingredient in our recipe to relax your senses, so go ahead add a little Geranium oil to your bath water and gently massage your face, neck, shoulders, legs and arms.
The use of aromatherapy has been around for centuries to help people balance their feelings and emotions. A few drops of these essential oils can be added to your bath water, vaporized into the air or delicately rubbed into your temples or back of your neck. Read the directions carefully because you want to use just the right amount.
Take long deep shallow breaths to calm your breathing and reduce your heart rate. Visualize and think happy thoughts, meditate on peaceful uplifting feelings. And last but not least your environment also plays an integral role in helping you relax
Keep your bathroom uncluttered and use light off white colors for your fixtures and walls. Big fluffy towels feel soft and inviting. And keep your bathroom temperature warm and cozy with ambient heating. So when ever you are feeling stressed or a little wound up you will have the perfect haven to calm down, sooth your senses and rejuvenate your body and spirit in your very own home spa.
