As my readers know, I love simple joys. I think its really important to treat yourself to small luxuries that add so much to life. Sometimes that means ordering a decadent dessert, other times I spend a little more on a quality piece of clothing to cherish.
Along those lines, everyone should take the time to indulge in some much needed self-care. I know we are all busy, but taking 20 minutes to paint your nails or take a bath can do so much for your self-esteem, stress-levels, and confidence.
Taking warm baths soothes tense muscles, relieves stress, and helps you sleep better. In your busy day-to-day life, I'm sure you don't have a ton of time for facials- luckily for you the hot water and steam opens up pores and improves blood circulation- a double win! Studies have also shown you can sleep better after a hot bath at night; so why not give it a try?
If you're on the fence about taking a bath, or simply think you don't have the time to indulge in this sort of thing- make it worth your time! Buy some nice bath oils, bombs, or teas. Light a candle, get a good book or maybe some soothing music, and enjoy those 15 minutes. (Bathing for longer than 10-15 minutes could actually dry out your skin, so you may want to invest in some deeply hydrating lotion if you plan on taking longer baths).
Botica Bliss has the best bath teas. This company is based in Australia, and Rebecca definitely understands taking the time for self-care and pampering.
She sees her products as an "excuse to take that time out and be beautifully pampered. To look after yourself and for 10-30 minutes be that important to yourself again. Something we all don't do enough and should." I couldn't agree more.
These teas are an amazing combination of ingredients that help to you to relax and de-stress- who doesn't need some of that in their life?! These adorable packs include a re-usable organic muslin bag fill and use in the bath, a little wooden spoon, and enough "tea" for 4-5 baths.
