With the majority of your days being spent at home in one space, it might feel like the line between your professional and personal life no longer exists.
Yes, there are plenty of ways that can help you to wind down after a work day, like rituals with your organic beauty products or preparing a loose leaf tea. But, where can you go to really cross that blurry line between the work day and rest mode? We have an idea.
While the bathroom has been traditionally reserved for hygiene, today it’s been elevated to be a space that can help make being well at home easier. Here, you can perform your twilight rituals, shut the door on stress and even turn your bathroom into a spa.
Turning your bathroom into a spa can be a therapeutic experience*. It’s an intentional ritual that can serve as a reminder of the importance of reducing your stress levels and purposely making time to care for your wellbeing.
If you’re looking for ways to turn your bathroom into a home spa, scroll down - we’ve gathered some easy self-care tips and a few organic beauty products to help get you started.
Plan and prepare
Similar to selecting a spa treatment from a menu, plan ahead to curate the experience that you’re after.
Before you begin, take into consideration the kind of space you want to create, where you want to take your senses and even how you want to feel once you step out, whether that’s relaxed or recharged.
Disconnect to reconnect
Completely immersing yourself can help you to get the most out of the time you’re dedicating to your wellbeing. Think of closing your bathroom door as closing the door to stress. You can tend to any issues once you step out, but, for now, they’re not welcome in your sanctuary!
Turn off phone notifications, leave your watch outside and really put your mind into it. It’s time to look inwards and nurture yourself, from soul to body.
Light a candle (or a few!)
A candle pampers both your eyes and your nose. Instead of turning on the lights, set a relaxing tone and welcome serenity with a candle-lit ambiance.
Backed by aromatherapeutic essential oils and calming botanical aromas, Malaya Organics' Moroccan Rose Candle envelops you in notes of comforting rose, calming geranium and uplifting bergamot.
Exfoliate for a full-body scrub treatment
Scrub the stress away while getting smooth skin and relieving muscle tension.
The affordable (only $20!) Fresh Grapefruit Body Scrub from Malaya Organics teams organic sugar with adaptogens like goji berry extract and antimicrobial grapefruit for extra smooth silkiness. Its luxurious texture and uplifting spa aroma are so out of this world, you won’t believe you’re at home!
Create a spa bath
Don’t have a tub? Don’t worry, the next one’s for you. If you do, our Bathing in Moonlight Set includes everything you need to help you indulge in your pre and post bathing ritual.
Steam your way to the spa
You don’t need a tub to feel like you’re at the spa! Transform your shower into a mini steam sauna in just two steps. Start by turning up the heat. Once you're happy with the steam, lower the heat to a lukewarm temperature - you don’t want to dry out your skin!
Ready for the second step? Get your senses involved! Unearth Malee’s Bali Flowers Soap is a luxury spa experience in a bar that transports you to a tropical paradise with plumeria floral wax and jasmine floral wax, taken straight from the flower petals. Each bar is lovingly wrapped in sustainable flower-seeded paper from an organization that supports a community of rural artisans in the mountains of Nepal.
