There are so many reasons to draw a warm bath at the end of a long day. From the health benefits you receive – to the mood elevating ritual of layering your favorite salts, oils, and aromas in a beautiful cocoon of water.
Taking a warm bath is one of the healthiest and most satisfying ways to wind down and de-compress.
Taking a warm bath before bed can result in better sleep, better blood flow and circulation, and muscle pain relief. Warm baths are especially satisfying after a cold surf or a long day out in nature.
Below we’ve laid out how to draw a luxurious – IG worthy – bath that will bring out your inner goddess vibes. Warning: You might be tempted to make one every night of the week.
Draw a bath but make sure the water is not too hot.
While it’s tempting to raise the heat, making sure the temperature of the bath water doesn’t exceed your own body temperature is crucial to avoid irritating or drying out your skin.
Graciously scatter your favorite vegan bath salts all around the tub.
We are currently obsessed with the Love Energy Bath salts from Forest Nymphs. Created with the intention of attracting love energy, these vegan bath salts actually make you feel like a sexy forest nymph entering a magical pool of crystals and rose petals.
It sounds cliche, but trust us on this one.
Gemstone and Reiki charged, this decadent rose-colored treat comes with large salt crystals that feel like actual crystals. Plus, a generous amount of dried rose petals that feel uber luxurious.
Our favorite part? Organic hemp seed oil and essential oils make bath time double as aroma therapy.
WOW TIP: use a handful of Love Energy Bath salts and supplement your bath with plain Epsom salts – this will make your beautiful forest nymph salts last longer.
Add a nourishing clean body oil with a decadent floral scent.
We love adding a few drops of organic clean body oil to our bath time rituals – it jumpstarts the moisturization process and feels extra nourishing. Our favorites are:
- Kora Organics Noni Glow Body Oil (with rosehip and sunflower seed oils) for a rose-scented bath
- French Girl Lumiere Body Oil – Jasmin for an indulgent south Pacific vibe, and
- May Lindstrom’s The Pendulum Potion Cleansing Oil for a decadent blend of macadamia, peru, and sweet orange oils that have a luxurious sweet and spicy vibe.
Light some coconut & soy wax candles.
Set your relaxation intention with the flattering glow of candlelight. We love the uber chic hand poured candles from Sundays Forever.
Their cult favorite 11:11 scent smells like fig, soft woods, and a hint of warming amber while their Rich candle sends up aromas of cashmere and smoke. Plus, their minimalist packaging helps to elevate your surroundings.
Put your hair in a chic turban.
Not only does a cute hair turban elevate your #goddess vibes – its good for your hair too. Keep your hair dry and frizz free by wrapping it up in a turban – like these ones from Aquis – before jumping in the tub.
Grab your favorite read.
Even 15 minutes of reading can help to lower your heart rate and ease muscle tension and help you sleep better. Bath is the perfect time to grab your favorite book – we like to think of it as the cherry on top of our expertly made cake of luxury.
Lastly, Enjoy your #goddess bath vibes like the true goddess you are.
