Baths are the holy grail for some, including me! It’s the perfect way to unwind and relax after a long and tiring day. For some though, they need the real deal- a spa!
Spas are great if you have the time and money. But, many don’t have either of those. But that’s ok, you don’t need to lose out. There’s a simple solution- bring the spa to you!
I’ve put together here some beautiful spa-like bath experiences that you can recreate from the comfort of your home!
1. Flower bath
Starting off we have this fabulous flower bath which by the way, just happens to be outside. While you may not be able to copy that, you can definitely copy the contents of the bath.
Use fresh flowers or opt for dried ones. Flowers have aromatherapy properties to help you relax and they are also pretty! You can add essential oils to top it off, because why not make it even better!
2. A bath full of love
You may not get the view with it, but indulging in a bath like that will calm down the worst nerves. The only problem with this bath is that by the time you’ve finished setting it up, you’ll be needing that bath more than ever!
A little trick- get someone to do it for you, you know like a boyfriend, husband or girlfriend!
3. Milk Bath
Feeling blue? Then you need to try out a milk bath. Milk baths have so many beneficial properties for all skin types, but it’s the best for dry and irritated skin prone to flare-ups.
You can use any milk of your choice and simply use it like you would use any other bath product. Dilute it with your water, add some pretty petals and oils for a good smell and you’ll have yourself a lovely relaxing bath!
4. Pink bath
For some, the ultimate spa-like experience is not as much about the actual water as it is about the accessories around it.
Surround yourself with luxury face masks, soothing lotions and calming smelling candles and you will duplicate this bath perfectly. Of course, don’t forget the much-needed drink!
5. Work of art bath
Take your bath to the next level by creating a work of art. Get rid of your purple mood with this indulgent purple bath that will be a mood lifter for anyone! Just looking at it makes me relax!
As a side note- using candles in the bath may seem very romantic but don’t go in a bath with real candles, it’s not worth the risk of burning yourself. Using fake tea lights is the perfect way to create this look!
6. Is it Spring yet?
Surround yourself with pastel flowers and you’ll probably be able to convince yourself that spring is right around the corner.
Add some spring smelling essential oils and you will be transformed into another world! One which is warmer and a lot less complicated!
7. Peony bath
Life with peonies is always better and brighter! Why not bring the peony beauty to the bath with you, they’re definitely a flower I want to get naked with!
Style up the rest of your bath with plants, candles and pretty pictures and you’ll fool yourself that you’re in a spa.
8. Witchy bath
Ideal for Halloween, or any time of year that you’re feeling a bit witchy! Baths don’t always need to be pretty and floral, sometimes a red bath will take all the anger out of you and help you relax quicker.
Get a red bath bomb and some dark red or black petals. Style up the rest of the bath with black and red candles and accessories!
9. Festive bath
It’s the most wonderful time of the year and you can join in the fun even from your bath! Keep your bath white so that it looks like snow and use red, white and green accessories to get it in the festive spirit.
From red petals to mini Christmas trees and of course, some candy cane snacks to keep your sweet tooth happy! Hot chocolate with whipped cream is the perfect finishing touch!
10. Chill bath
This bath is the ultimate relaxation bath! It has everything you need to relax and unwind from a tiring day of running after kids.
On days that I find everything too much for me, a chick-flick movie with lots of sugar is the ideal chill. It may not be healthy but it certainly does the trick! Get yourself a purple bath bomb and red petals and you will be in heaven!
Nowadays, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to all the different products we have available to help us relax in the bath. Really the sky’s the limit!
From regular old fashioned bubble baths and salts to more exciting options like bath bombs, dried flowers, bath petals and essential oils. Spa-like experiences from the comfort of your home have never been easier so go on and spoil yourself!
Some of these ideas require time and effort, but most of them can be done in only a few minutes. Go and spoil yourself, because you deserve it! Check out our tips on how to create a bath that will truly relax you!
Small tip- after going for a bath don’t forget to moisturise your body, especially during those cold winter months when the skin tends to get really dry. Check out our recommendations on the best body moisturisers!
