6 Easy Ways to Upgrade Your Bath

We all love a good bath. It’s a time to think, to reflect, and, perhaps most importantly, to get clean. But, if you’re going to take the time to take a bath, why not spice it up a little? And no, I’m not just talking about a fruity bubble bath. Why not add in some fun things that will not only look pretty, but will also help your body?

Check out some quick and easy bath additions below, and enjoy a nice relaxing bath (a maybe an aesthetically pleasing Insta post or two).

Roses

Not only will your bath look and smell heavenly, but your skin will also feel divine. Rose petals have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, plus they have vitamin c which makes them incredibly moisturizing.

How To Do It:

Add 5-6 drops of rose essential oil and a few handfuls of dried rose petals to warm bath. Can also mix in some milk in order to add to the moisturizing elements!

Lavender

We all know that lavender is a great way to relieve stress. A nice soothing bath with some lavender essential oil will not only relax you by relieving tension and sore muscles, but it can also treat acne and irritation due to its detoxing and purifying qualities.

How To Do It:

Add 6-8 drops of pure lavender essential oil to running water. Can also add dried lavender directly to the bath.

Citrus

Talk about Vitamin C! By adding citrus to your bath, your skin can reap the benefits of citric acid such as improved circulation and shrunken pores. Vitamin C also helps to increase the production of collagen, making your skin healthy and smooth.

How To Do It:

Cut up citrus fruits of your choosing. You could do limes, lemons, oranges, grapefruits or a combination of them! Then, simply add the sliced fruit to your warm bath.

Tea

Green tea is great for its anti-aging minerals. It also has antioxidants that can detox your body and strengthen your skin. Not only will your bath smell great, but your skin will look great.

How To Do It:

Add 5-10 green tea bags to the bathtub while the faucet is running. Allow the tea to soak for a bit, then enjoy a nice bath!

Oatmeal

Oatmeal’s not just for eating anymore. Oats are perfect for soothing irritated or itchy skin, such as sunburns, rashes or dry skin.

How To Do It:

Add 1-2 cups of uncooked oats to your bath, and let them stand for 5 minutes. If you don’t want to feel the oats on your skin, put the oats in a muslin cloth before adding to the bathtub.

Milk

Milk is immensely hydrating for the skin, as lactic acid is great for exfoliating and moisturizing. Milk can also help soothe irritated skin, such as sunburns or eczema. If milk isn’t your thing, go ahead and swap for coconut milk!

How To Do It:

Add one cup of whole milk to warm bath. Or, substitute for coconut milk.
