It’s meant to be a time of good cheer, relaxation and celebration, but for many, Christmas can be supremely stressful. So, it’s particularly important to take a moment to relax, and there’s no better way to calm the mind and relax the body than by taking an aromatherapy bath.
Yes, taking a good soak in a hot bath has so many benefits for our mind, body and skin. We asked Beatitude founder Rebecca O’Connor for her top tips on keeping calm and creating the perfect bath this festive period.
For the perfect relaxation vibe, pick your favourite scented candle and burn it for five minutes before you step into your bath. Beatitude’s Winter Comfort Candle is perfect for creating an inviting, cosy ambience. Made from eco soy wax, this beautiful seasonal blend combines uplifting citrus essential oils of Mandarin, Bergamot and Clementine with the clarifying herbal aroma of Lavender and Eucalyptus, together with warming spicy notes of Clove and Cinnamon, and will fill your bathroom with the most comforting and seasonal aroma.
Taking a bath is not about getting clean – that’s what showers are for! Baths are about calming your troubled mind and soothing your aches and pains, both physical and emotional. A bath can help wipe the slate clean and prepare for restful sleep. To further boost the benefits of your bath add a few drops of aromatherapy bath oil from Beatitude’s range, designed to soothe the skin and leave you feeling relaxed. Each blend has been developed with quite different and distinctive effects. The Peace blend, is the perfect bedtime blend containing pure essential oils of Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Petitgrain and Mandarin which help clear and quieten the mind. Patience, an invigorating blend of Ginger, Juniper berry, Rosemary and Lavender, is designed to help relax tight muscles and has a warming effect which is wonderful after exercise or outdoor activity. Having won four National Beauty Awards the Joy blend is one of our most popular products. Fondly known as ‘Sunshine in a bottle’ due to it’s cheering blend of citrus oils, it really does help elevate your mood. Plus, our bath oils disperse in water, meaning they avoid the greasy residue often associated with traditional bath oils, and your skin is left feeling silky smooth.
