Set the Mood with Music and Lighting

Music can take away the stress of a long day. A bit of Jazz will definitely soothe your soul. Set your bath with candles all around to enhance relaxation. Scents like lavender and chamomile will definitely ease your tension even before you soak in a hot bath.

Aromatherapy and Essential Oils

Your scented candles will help you relax your body and mind, but essential oils will go a step further. They can also act as a moisturising agent as you soak in your bath. Scents such as lavender, orange blossoms, mandarin lemon balm, and ylang-ylang possess relaxing, therapeutic qualities, while mint and vanilla are invigorating and vitalizing. Pour a few drops of essential oils or extract in your warm bath as you soak in and absorb the the oils in your skin, leaving you relaxed and refreshed.

Hot Water, Milk, and Honey

After scrubbing, the Japanese soak in tolerably hot water for a long time in order to ease and relax tense muscles as well as cleanse the body and the mind. The Ancient Egyptians bathed in milk to keep their skin healthy and radiant. Honey is widely recognized as an indispensable part of skincare that smooths and softens the skin.

Skin Care, Hair Care, and Body Treatments

Exfoliating is a glorious ritual that you need to do at least twice a week. As you soak in the bath, take time to care for your skin with body scrubs and bath salts. Take the bathing experience as a chance for you to care for your hair with treatments. Facial masks will also work much better as the moist environment of your bathroom will better allow your skin and hair to absorb the nutrients in the treatments.

More importantly, living in close proximity to your work will greatly reduce the stress of having to endure the metro traffic.
