Bath Salts Soak - Relax and Unwind After a Long Day

Bath Salts Soak - Relax and Unwind

Meetings, reports, sales calls, deadlines, assignments, paper work – the list could go on and on. All this in a day’s work! Every day the human body is pushed more and more beyond what it can comfortably handle. Adrenalin keeps you going during the day. (Okay, maybe those quick gossip sessions at lunch or that much needed cup of hot coffee helps you stay sane too) Somehow you manage to make it to the end of the day. That glorious moment when the clock strikes five and when you can call it a day and head to the comfort of your home.

Wouldn’t it be just the perfect thing if there was someplace you could escape to, that would automatically calm you down, help you unwind and bring your body back to its natural harmony? Think Avatar style glass domed stations. Get in, shut this world out and get transported to paradise. Oh well, one can dream, can’t they? But the pace at which the world is moving today, that may just be possible very soon.

But for now, let’s live in the present. So, we were saying, a long day at work. You step inside your house and slip those shoes off, drop that bag/briefcase on the floor and plonk yourself on the couch. Ah! Close your eyes and you can almost feel bliss! Still thinking of that Avatar idea? Well, you bet! Tell you what, maybe, just maybe, you could give yourself that magical experience. Actually, you could escape to your happy place every day if you wanted to. How? You are forgetting one of life’s simple pleasures called a bath.

A bath. Yes, a bath. A nice, warm, delightful bath. You may just scoff at the oh-so-ordinary suggestion, but don’t underestimate the therapeutical goodness of the good old relaxing bath. You want to make it extra special? Of course, you deserve more than the ordinary, right? Plus there’s this Avatar thing we’ve been talking about all along. Consider a bath salts soak. Your ticket to a deeply relaxing, spa-like experience, right in the comfort of your own home.

Easy as 1-2-3. Simply run a warm bath, add your favourite bath salts, and sink in with all abandon. Bath salts come in a variety of textures, blends, colours and fragrances. Choose one that appeals to you most. Lavender, for example is known for its relaxing and calming properties. Or if you prefer the all natural, fragrance free kind then go for plain Epsom salts. Whatever you choose, you are guaranteed to have a very deep relaxing experience. Bath salts soaks have a wonderful quality of increasing your buoyancy in water and you get an amazing feeling of being light and floating. So peaceful and soothing! Why not take it up a notch? Light some of your favourite scented candles, play some soft music and simply relax in your soaking salts. Close your eyes, breathe deeply and you’ll be in your happy place in an instant.

There’s a plethora of bath and body stores that offer a whole wide range of bath salts for soaking. It’s wonderful to see/feel the different textures, colours and fragrances and pick something special for yourself. You can make your own bath salts too, if you wish! It’s simple and easy to put together. You can customise your bath salts recipe to suit your preference – like adding your favourite scent or keeping it fragrance free. There are so many possibilities plus it’s fun too!

Whether you plan to make some yourself or choose to buy, bath salts are a simple addition to your regular bath that can take your senses to new heights and help you wind down after a long, hard day. Enjoy!
