Five Top Tips for a Relaxing Bath Time!

I don’t know about you, but for me, there is nothing better than a long relaxing bath at the end of hard day. It is a time of uninterrupted peace and quiet. It’s bliss.

I’m sure many of us have our ‘going for a bath’ rituals. The things that we must do to ensure maximum results during our time of relaxation.

The team at Bath Repair Kit HQ have put our heads together and come up with our Five top tips for a relaxing bath time.

1. Start in a clean bathroom

The one thing guaranteed to stop you relaxing in the bath, is looking at the jobs you need to be doing. There is no way you can lay back in the warm soapy water and be calm, when all you can think about is the blob of toothpaste that someone left on the sink. It just won’t work.

2. Music

I personally cannot even begin to think about getting into a bath if there isn’t some relaxing music playing in the bathroom. Obviously, you need to be careful with electrical objects in the bathroom, but a Bluetooth speaker kept safely away from any water should be fine. We’re definitely not recommending you go for a selection of your favourite dance anthems or a playlist of gangster rap! Something instrumental should be perfect. If you use Spotify, there are a number of great ‘Spa Music’ playlists available which are ideal for achieving that calming atmosphere.

3. Fragrance

Whether you prefer bubbles, salts, oils or bath bombs, the fragrance can make all the difference. Lavender is a really relaxing scent (Lavender essential oil is a great healing oil and is effective for treating acne). Eucalyptus and Peppermint are great if you have a cold or a stuffy nose, while Lemon and Rosemary can boost your mood.

4. Lighting

Most people tend to opt for spotlights in a bathroom. As much as this is great for the odd occasion you need to remove a splinter from your finger, it’s not that relaxing lying in the bath being blinded by a super bright LED bulb directly above your head. Candles are an option (used with caution obviously). If you have a mirror with lights in your bathroom, that is probably just the right amount of light for you to relax and still be able to see what you’re doing without feeling like you need your shades in your bath.

5. A fluffy towel

Make sure you have a soft dry towel to get out of the bath to. It’s horrible getting out of a warm bath and realising that your partner or child used your towel earlier in the day and now you have to attempt to dry yourself with something cold and damp. A clean, dry towel freshly warmed on a radiator is perfect for making sure you stay relaxed post bath! If you’re really into feeling snuggly, you could even pop some pyjamas on a radiator before you get in the bath to be super cosy!

We hope we have inspired you to go home tonight and unwind. It’s certainly what we’re all planning to do!
