What is a luxurious bathing experience without the cleansing and calming effect of oils, salts, and soaps? Though each of these three bath products holds its own purpose, we have chosen to feature them all on a single page for your benefit – it just makes things easier for you. Why search around the whole website for these things when we all know they work well together to create a relaxing and cleansing bathing experience.
As home renovators, we often come home with our fair share of scrapes and sore muscles. For us, bath time is all about relaxing, de-stressing, and soothing our well-earned wounds. For you, bath time may be more about calming your mind or simply getting clean. Whatever the purpose behind your bath, you can bet that there is an oil, salt, or soap designed to meet your needs.
The biggest consideration when purchasing any bath product is your own needs. I have very sensitive skin and often experience muscle cramping at the end of the day. For me, then, it is important to find products which will not aggravate my skin problems, but, instead, soothe and repair them. It is also important for me to find products that release the tension in my muscles.
My husband, on the other hand, uses the bath as a quiet sanctuary where he can slow his mind. He has trouble sleeping and needs products that promote a very relaxed state of being. So, you must ask yourself, “What am I hoping to get out of my bath and what special considerations might I have for my skin, muscles, or mind?”
Best Bath Oils
There are two major types of bath oils available for purchase – essential oils and bathing oils. Essential oils are great additions to the bathing experience because they can help you unlock the power of scent in influencing your state of mind – some are invigorating while others are calming. Pure essential oils can also aid in healing certain skin conditions. Generally speaking, you should only require two to five drops of an essential oil in your bath for full therapeutic benefits.
Bathing oils are thicker than essential oils and are meant to help lubricate skin. Though they are not meant for aromatherapy purposes, they can often be mixed with essential oils for added aroma-related benefits. Bathing oils are great for people with dry skin, because they help to moisturize in a natural way.
