With the help of course, of the best holistic tools to make each bath a memorable one!
TAKE A DEEP BREATH, RELAX AND IMMERSE IN THE BEST BATH OF YOUR LIFE
Unlike Japan, Korea or Iceland, the Western culture does not equate baths as a part of our overall health. We are often brought to think of them as an unnecessary waste of time, which can be optimized with a quick shower.
However, in other parts of the globe, baths have spoken for centuries to the natural healing properties of water. Beyond the more obvious relaxing and muscle-soothing benefits, baths are a unique chance for soulful transformations, as they can channel your creativity and activate powerful insights, establish and strengthen boundaries, or even heal from deep, psychic pain.
And if you fancy tapping into the Moon’s power, a New Moon bath is an overall cleansing experience to help you part with what is no longer serving you, while helping you set a new intention or start fresh with focus and clarity.
The goal is to try and create an emotional connection with your bathroom. Take a deep breath, this is your moment to feel good. We have compiled an edit of the best tools, pre, during and post bath to let you zone out and make each bath a deep, powerful, ritual!
In preparation for your magical bath ritual, purify the environment and set the mood with an enchanting scent. Prepare your body with the best tools and products to achieve the smoothest and most toned skin ever and get ready to enter full relaxation mode!
