Being a mother to young children is a rewarding and wonderful thing. It can also be challenging, with some days leaving you feeling frazzled and depleted. Taking some time out for yourself at the end of a long and stressful day is important for both your physical and emotional well-being.
Taking a long, relaxing bath once the children are all fast asleep is a popular and soothing way to sooth tired muscles and calm a busy mind. For the ultimate in relaxation, try these three aromatherapy products to create a heavenly, spa-like experience during your nightly bathtime.
1. An aromatherapy candle
Aromatherapy candles contain essential oils which will provide a wonderful scent while you enjoy the warmth of your bath. Candles also provide a beautiful, muted light, transforming your everyday bathroom into a serene space with romantic ambiance.
While all aromatherapy candles smell wonderful, opt for scents which are designed to calm and relax the senses. Lavender, Palmarosa, Cedarwood and Vetiver are all beautiful scents that are known to promote relaxation and reduce stress. Use a mix of these aromas with several different candles or choose a candle that combines them in a harmonious blend.
2. An aromatherapy bath-bomb
Bath-bombs are a wonderful addition to your night-time bath. The little block of goodness will fizz and dissolve into the water providing you with an aromatic and skin-nourishing treat. Bath-bombs use a mix of essential oils, baking soda and bath salts to create a bath experience smells amazing and also has therapeutic benefits.
When choosing a bath-bomb, it's worth spending a little extra on a good quality product. This way you can be sure your bath will contain organic essential oils and won't contain any harsh fillers or chemicals that will dry out or damage your skin.
3. An aromatherapy body lotion
To finish your luxury bath experience, the final step is to use an aromatherapy body lotion once you've dried off. After a warm bath, the pores of your skin will be open and in a perfect state to absorb the body lotion and the beneficial effects of the essential oils.
The perfect after-bath aromatherapy body lotion contains essential oils that both relax and nourish. Along with calming oils such as Lavender and Cedarwood, find a lotion that contains oils like Ylang Ylang, Frankincense and Rose Hip, which have been used for millennia as products for skin care.
A luxurious aromatherapy bath is a perfect way to end the day. It will leave you feeling calm, de-stressed and ready for a restful night's sleep.
Hi, there! Welcome to my blog. Would you like to be my friend? My name is Nina and this is my space where I am going to talk about what is hot and what is not in the world of fashion. I do not work in the fashion industry myself, but last year my new best friend got a job working for a top designer. This means that I often get an inside peek at the next big trend before it hits the shops. My friend is also a model so she gets a lot of free beauty stuff which she shows off to me. I have learnt so much since I became friends with this wonderful woman. I hope you enjoy my blog!
