How to turn your bathroom into a self-care sanctuary
From home fragrance to faux foliage and fluffy new towels – a space dedicated to self-care is essential.
The idea that you need to prioritise your own needs before anyone else’s isn’t anything new. Now more than ever we’re noticing the benefits of taking some alone time and slowing down, even if it’s only for a moment. We’re all for less rushing and more resting ─ and with small changes to your space and your routine, relaxation can easily become part of your day-to-day. Here, we share our favourite ways to create a soothing environment that puts ‘me time’ at the top of the to-do list.
Don’t underestimate the power of fragrance to take you places. Like, far away from the washing piling up in your laundry. The smell of citrus and sea salt might whisk you away to your favourite family beach holiday. The toasty crackle of roasted chestnuts to a white Christmas in Europe. Fill your bathroom and your senses with your chosen fragrance, whether it’s with a candle, diffuser, fragrance stones or linen spray.Shop now
One of the great joys of a hotel stay is wrapping yourself in their soft towels - closely followed by the fact you don’t have to wash them yourself! Achieve this feeling at home by investing in the right towels. Treat yourself to high-quality cotton with a generous weight. Rib detailing or high/low pile will add to the luxurious feel. Opt for green colourways for an added sense of calm. To keep them soft and smelling delicious, wash using a laundry liquid designed for towels, such as our ever-popular Aroma Wash.Shop now
If only it was that easy! The symbol of nature, green is often associated with relaxation and harmony. Turns out that simply admiring a burst of green can help take the edge off. Whether you go for a large leafy tree, a delicate orchid or a vase full of faux blooms, introducing green artificial plants into your space might be all you need to help reduce stress and restore some much-needed balance.Shop now
Comfort is at the heart of any self-care plan, and if that means wearing lounging accessories 24/7 then go for it. Choose a cosy bathrobe and don’t be afraid to laze around in it long after your shower or bath. Then there’s your feet ─ they deserve a pair of comfy slippers for relaxed Sunday vibes all through the week. It’s time to take your self-care game up a notch.Shop now
It’s so important to carve out some time on your own, even if it’s a few minutes each day. It might be as simple as swapping your on-the-go coffee for a sit down at home. It might be a few quiet moments on your yoga mat during your lunch break. It might even be using a jade roller and your favourite face oil to unwind at the end of the day.Shop now
