After a hard day at work, it’s nice to come home to a place where you can rest and unwind, and set aside some time for a little personal care and pampering. Here are some tips on how you can convert your bathroom into your very own relaxation room at home. You’ve earned it!
Clear the clutter
In the same way that it’s hard to cook in a cluttered kitchen, it’s hard to relax in a messy bathroom. Clear away any damp towels or other laundry that has fallen to the floor, toss empty containers, and put open bottles of shampoos and shower gels back in their respective cupboards. Also, wipe up any spills from leaky bottles with Lysol® Disinfecting Wipes.

Make the time
A great way of helping you to clear your mind is by writing down random thoughts or creating a to-do list. This trick gives you the knowledge that you aren’t forgetting something, and allows you to literally throw out your thoughts It doesn’t take long to do, but helps let you focus on relaxation. Try to incorporate this into your regular routine as it goes a long way to keeping stress at bay.
Set the mood
Lighting is one of the best ways to create a relaxing environment. Try lighting some candles while you enjoy a nice soak in the tub. If you have bright strip lights in your bathroom, you may even want to invest in some wall sconces or uplighters that will bring a more modern glow to your bathroom.
The power of scent
Certain scents can make you feel more relaxed virtually instantly. For example, inhaling the vapour from lavender essential oil is said to calm and slow the nervous system, balancing the mind and body. Try introducing some scented candles, fragrance sticks or even an aromatherapy burner to your bathroom to add to the ambiance.
Music not only relaxes you, it can be a great way to stop household sounds from interrupting you in your wellness oasis. Make sure you use a waterproof music player and pick your favourite soothing songs to help you unwind.
Nothing beats a luxurious warm bath. It helps stimulate blood circulation and calm the nerves. You can buy some excellent herbal bath blends at your local pharmacy or health store. Try lavender and chamomile to make your bath even more soothing and relaxing, or perhaps some milk thistle and rosemary if you think your skin could do with a little detox.
Indulge in textures
Invest in a generously sized, soft and absorbent bathrobe or body wrap that you can bundle up in after your bath. Not only is it soothing to your skin post-bath, but it helps recreate a spa-like feeling at home.
A taste for tea or fragrant water
To top off creating an oasis in your bathroom, be sure to treat yourself to your favourite herbal tea, or citrus or cucumber water. It engages your sense of taste while ensuring you remain hydrated and fresh.
So there you have it: every bit of advice you could ever need to transfer your bathroom into a place of relaxation. Now what are you waiting for? Start running the perfect bath!
