I can’t think of a better way to unwind after a long or stressful day than to indulge in a lovely bath time ritual.
First, I like to light an aromatherapy candle, which diffuses essential oils into the air and promotes almost instant soothing and relaxation.
I fill the bathtub with warm water (not too hot, as it can be drying) and always throw in a handful of our Organic Decadent Lavender and Vanilla Bath Salts For me, no bath is complete without them. These bath salts contain the highest quality salts, plants, and botanical oils designed to remineralize and detoxify the body while also soothing aching muscles and beautifying the skin. The aroma is also divine!
For the ultimate spa experience, I like to steep our Organic Blossom Baby Bath in the water after adding the salts. I put a scoop into the provided 100% cotton (no dyes!) pouch and let it soak for as long as necessary for all the herbs and flowers to infuse into the bath water. To make the herbal infusion stronger for extra relaxation powers I squeeze the pouch into the water. Although this bath tea is amazing for mama and baby bath time, it is also completely suitable for adult use as well. The blend of gluten free oats, chamomile flowers, lavender flowers, calendula flowers, and rose petals help to calm the nervous system and can relieve all kinds of skin irritations and itchiness. Imagine taking a bath in your favorite mug of herbal tea!
Once I’m in, it’s easy to lose track of time, but I generally try to get out after about 30 minutes of soaking. As the water drains, I take the cotton pouch from the baby bath and gently scrub my skin with it to exfoliate, since dead skin can be removed more easily after a bath. Plus, that extra punch of soothing herbs in direct contact with my skin makes sure they’re being absorbed and leaves me baby smooth.
Finally, after lightly drying off, I apply our Woods Body Oil all over. The smell of Woods is very warm and earthy, with notes of seductive Sandalwood, Bulgarian Rose, Vetiver and Bergamot. It is also intensely moisturizing, rich with vitamins and antioxidants that help repair dry or damaged skin, especially in the colder months.
Show yourself some TLC with your very own bath ritual!
