The Best Stress Relieving Bath
Your At Home Spa

emWave2 by HeartMath LLC

As many of you know, Laughs Heal is much about how to help you understand the benefits of laughter therapy in your process of discovering how to manage stress effectively. Laughter therapy helps relieve stress and many other well known problems which we all deal with on a regular basis.

Now I’d like to share with you one of the best relaxation techniques that you’ll ever find. It’s a simple, good, old fashioned steaming hot bath. But for optimal relaxation, this is not your everyday bath, mind you. This is a special stress relieving bath!

This type of bathing experience is more like a bathing ritual because when you really need stress relief, it’s much more effective to “set the mood” for a real stress relieving, stress busting special break by indulging yourself in this ancient, special form of bathing, turning it into a real bathing ritual. If you’re ready to try this for yourself, remember that it’s not supposed to be one of those in the tub and out in 10 minutes kind of bathing experience. So, you are probably asking what do I mean by “set the mood” and how does this “bathing ritual” differ from the regular routine?

It all starts with setting aside 1 hour for your special “stress relief for you time”! Turn off the phone, all of them :-) , close your pc or mac, send everyone to the other side of the house and let no distractions keep you from focusing on this special bathing ritual so that you can gain maximum benefit. This will be the best spent hour of your schedule because it really reduces stress levels recharges your batteries!

The Best Stress Relieving Stress Buster

Now, to begin with, let’s get our supplies together.

If I really want to get the most out of my bathing ritual and really want to relieve stress from the day, I need to set a few things into motion first. So the first thing you need to do to “set the mood” for this special bathing ritual is to turn on your towel heater. You’ll want that to be heating up already and it might take a minute or two, so start with that.
If you don’t already have a towel heater, then get one. Trust me, you will not regret it!. These days, there are so many good towel heaters readily and easily available, so no home should be without one.

If your objective is to set aside 1 hour for your special stress relieving bath, then you certainly don’t want to get get out of a nice hot, steamy bath just to wrap yourself up in a cold towel! That would greatly diminish the usefulness of your stress relieving bathing ritual and you want to maximize the benefits, not diminish them.

Here are a some of the best towel heaters available that you can easily have delivered to your front door:


 
 

Mounted Towel Heater Versus Electric Towel Heater

One of the things I like about having an electric towel heater is that they don’t require any mounting onto walls, so it’s easy to just plug it in and you’re done; it’s ready and working! I even got one for my sister when I noticed how much she loved the fact that they are so easy to move around. That’s an extra advantage you get when you get an electric towel heater as opposed to a towel heater that’s mounted on your wall…you can change your mind and move them around to any bathroom or room in your home!

With Your Towel Heater, You Want Soft, Plush Towels

Then I drape my softest, most plush and luxurious towels all over the towel warmer so that once I plug it in, they will all be wrapped in warmth! You want to do this to be sure that when you step out of your tub, you step into more relaxing warmth and comfort. This is particularly nice when it’s freezing outside or when the air conditioning is on high.
 

Ultra Soft 6 piece Towel set Lilac by Cotton Craft – 100% Pure Luxury 650 gram Cotton with a Rayon band – Contains 2 Oversized and Large Bath Towels 30×54, 2 Hand Towels 16×28 and 2 Wash Cloths 12×12

Stress Relieving Candles To Light Your Stress Relieving Bath

Next, I like to get my stress relieving candles ready and place them around my tub and all thruought my bathroom. Candles are particularly perfect for “setting the mood” and they promote serenity from within. When you do this, you get the visual effects of your decision to take 1 hour for yourself to relieve stress and recharge your batteries.

It’s like the difference between eating a sandwich on the run and sitting down to a well-set table for a meal. Even if you sit down at the table for the same sandwich, your dining experience is going to be completely different. Exploring how to manage stress effectively means getting the most out of even every day experiences.

Aromatherapy Candles- Lavender, Lemongrass & Orange, Cinnamon Spice- made with 100% pure essential oils – 72 hr. total burn time

For your stress relieving bath, any candle will work, but I recommend you try aromatherapy candles for the added benefits they give you. Studies have shown a direct link between aromatherapy candles and your positive thinking power, so to gain the greatest benefit from your stress relieving bathing ritual, let the power of essential oils give you their special boost.

Don’t you just love that special kind of feeling whenever you see lit candles all around? Whether at a nice restaurant or a holiday celebration, candles always have and always will do something extra special for “setting the mood”. They whisk you into another dimension of feeling and with this type of bathing ritual, these are the types of little stress relieving tools that put together, really make a huge difference for you!

Your At Home Spa

Next on your list is to pull out your special scents for your at home spa bathwater! One I new product I recently tried and like a lot, made by Molton Brown.

I found this particularly stimulating because it’s made with wild-indigo flower and smells absolutely delicious! Molton Brown has long been a distinguished creator of exquisitely made products.

I first discovered them while traveling and the hotel I was at had their products in the room. But when I found out that I could get these uniquely blended products delivered straight to my front door, I knew I had found a winner! Everytime I use thier products, I’m reminded of that great vacation, and since they’ve got something for everyone, I’ve found they make great gifts for the whole family, too.

One thing I’ve noticed really helps you to feel special about this experience of creating a bathing ritual, is to open something special, just for your special stress relieving break.

I don’t know about you, but I lead an extremely busy lifetyle with tons of obligations and responsibilities. So if you know what that’s like, then you know it isn’t always so easy to find that 1 solid hour in a day to dedicate to your stress relieving bath. That’s why when you do set aside that special time, it’s really important to go all out for yourself to really make it something extraordinary and special.

Special Bathroom Accessories

Lately, I’ve added a little something new to this bathing ritual that is really impressive. Good things come in small packages and this, you’ve got to try this for yourself! Opening a special box of these little perfumed door tassels, exclusively for your special bathing ritual really makes your stress relieving break special.

I hang them everywhere in my bathroom when “setting the mood” for my stress relieving bath. You’ll find that they really do a lot to not only perfume the entire area, but they also create a nice decoration as you step into your new ritual!

OK, I have to admit…..I particularly like this type of tassel room freshener because they are effective and come in the most beautifully exquisite boxes!. That really makes it an extra delight when you open something pretty and useful that has nice pretty packaging too! :-)

Special Bath Soaps

Of course, to perfectly “set the mood”, you might like to try the idea of using special and decorative soaps because they really add a lot towards transforming your regular bath into a stress relieving bathing ritual as well!
Do you really want to get all of your other details especially prepared with care and attention just to use your regular soap in the dish? (Or even more, your “soap on a rope”?!) :-(

Trust me, you know that just isn’t going to give you that special feeling you’re looking for here. While searching for items for a friend’s wedding last year, I came across these delights and have been hooked every since! When I get this little box of goodies out, I start feeling special already. You will love indulging in the enchanting experience they “set the mood” for, all so well!

Try these elegant bath soaps, you’ll see what I mean….

Plus, you can get many uses from these extremely elegant bath soaps. Even if you just display them to softly scent a room, they smell lovely and make great decorations, too. Imagine your guests when they go to your guest bathroom and see these?!

For your stress relieving bath, just think of when you peel off a petal to lather between your hands. Now how special is that?

You can also sprinkle a handful of these rose petals into your warm bath water and they will dissolve and foam to create a soothing, fragrant bath. I love these boxes because each set comes with 27 elegant soap roses, which is three boxes of 9 each and they are all tied with delicate white satin ribbons, again adding to the exquisite feeling you get from turning your regular bath into a special stress relieving bathing ritual.

Herbal Tea: Essential in Your Herbal Remedies for Stress Relief

In the meantime, while your bathwater is running, undoubtedly you can enjoy some refreshing herbal tea to sip on while you’re in the bathtub. Herbal tea really makes difference if you want stress relief that will calm your mind, body and soul. Plus, it’s also good for you too, so even more reason to try some good herbal tea.

A friend of mine gave me this beautiful herbal teapot set that is perfect for stress relief break occasions and when entertaining, they go over great with guests, too! They are beautiful sets that go well with any color scheme:

 
 

Today, there is much medical evidence which has proven the benefits of green tea.

Although I must admit, it took a tiny bit of effort, I’ve gotten into the regular habit of grabbing a pack of of green tea when I go to the grocery store.

But for special relaxation moments, you might like to use something other than your “everyday” type of tea.

This is a bathing ritual for stress relief you’re creating here, so you don’t want to use your “everyday” items if you really intend to make it something special.

If you really want this stress relieving bath to be different, then it’s a good idea to use different things to create a different experience.

Natural Remedies for Stress Relief

So for this special bathing experience, why not give yourself the benefits from one of the finest green teas around?

And yes, you can really taste the difference that the jasmine flowers make! When these arrive, so nicely packaged, you’re going to feel like you’ve given yourself the best stress relieving green tea there is!

For sure, some nice jasmine chocolates next to your brewing herbal tea is a sweet little detail that adds a lot of delight. Chocolate has also been proven to relieve stress and lift your spirits. So use this little stress relief remedy to help you turn your bath from a regular, ordinary bath into a special, relaxing, stress relieving bathing experience:

Zen and the Art of Relaxation

Now the only things left for you to do, is to dim the lights, light the candles and prepare the music! To really get a lot of relaxing pleasure, you can try some zen music for your relaxing bathing experience. Sure, jazz or classical, music can work as well, yet this zen relaxation music has been really getting great reviews from everyone who’s tried it.

You can’t go wrong with choices like these.

And there you have it! A wonderful way to turn an ordinary, everyday routine into a ritual of relaxation, tranquility and peace.

Stress Relieving Bath: Your Stress Relief Solution

By setting the mood for even something as simple as bathing, you can transform your bath into a bathing ritual and gain endless benefits of deep stress relief. Once coming out of that kind of steamy bath, you will surely feel refreshed, relaxed and renewed.

Try this step by step guide to really “set the mood” with all of your potent little details in place so that you can really see and feel the difference it makes in your routine of life obligations.

Remember that your first obligation is to learn how to manage stress effectively so that you can give your best to your other life obligations. Try setting a date for yourself, just for you, because if you don’t do this for yourself, who will?

If taking that 1 solid, sacred hour out of a busy week seems not so doable, then try finding 1 hour in a month to give yourself this special experience. The benefits from your stress relieving bath are well worth it and so are you, so do yourself a favor and set that date for yourself!

I’m excited to know how it went for you, so please leave your comments!

Here’s to your stress relieving bath success!

  8. perfume reviews, aftershave reviews

    I love a really nice fragrance, although I sometimes think there are too many perfumes and aftershaves these days. Too much choice becomes confusing eventually. Sometimes its a good help to read a perfume review to see what others think of a particular aftershave or perfume. Gives you an idea whether you should maybe buy it or not.
