Imagine the scent of lavender and fresh lilies wafting from the vase, brown sugar and vanilla after a nice pedicure, the sound of your favorite music and a warm bath robe embracing you after a soak from a bath enriched with natural oils and floating spa lights. Sounds out of this world? I’ll show you how to make this happen at your home, in your very own bathroom.
Here are a few changes you can make that will encourage you to have more “me time”:
1. Rain Shower Heads
If you prefer a shower to the tub, then this is a good option. Unlike the usual shower, which shoots water at an angle, this shower takes advantage of gravity by throwing water at 90 degrees, as if you were standing in the rain, The only difference is that the water temperature can be adjusted to suit individual needs. These shower heads are now available with the WaterSense certification–EPA Partnership. It’s an inexpensive addition that will upgrade your shower to a spa!
2. Spa Robes
Why do only hotels carry them? Why can’t we treat ourselves luxuriously at home? Suggested material for a spa robe is terry cotton, or cotton velour and terry. The latter has a soft velvet look on the outside but absorbs like terry from the inside. You can also have your robe monogrammed to get some custom luxury.
