Beat the January Blues with Bathing Rituals

Feb 10, 2015

We understand the January blues. The holiday craze is over, the weather seems colder and colder, and there is still a long way to go before we can begin to think about green leaves and a warm summer breeze.

First Ritual – Pamper Yourself with Bath Salts

But fear not. There are ways to beat the glum side of winter. Take this down time to treat and take care of yourself!

You will immediately feel better if you take the time to relax and let go of anything making you anxious. Feel better as you envelop yourself in the warmth of perfumed waters thanks to bath salts. These carry many benefits beyond looking, feeling and smelling beautiful. When used in their natural, pure form, they contain many beneficial minerals and nutrients that keep the skin smooth and supple. The minerals found in bath salts, such as magnesium, potassium, calcium, bromide and sodium are absorbed into our pores. The result? Magnesium helps combat fatigue, calcium promotes healthy bones, potassium balances moisture levels in the skin, and bromide soothes sore muscles. Rest assured. A relaxing bath also helps obtain a great night’s sleep.

Second Ritual – Create a Feeling of Happiness and Warmth

Using aromatherapy with orange essential oil, create a haven of happiness and warmth, by placing a few drops in warm water, then inhale the beautiful perfume. The warm vapour will instantly combat the cold weather. It is a great antidepressant and antiseptic. Your skin will feel wonderful and your mood will increase greatly. It is a great tonic as well, keeping the metabolic system in proper shape, contributing to strength and boosting immunity.

Third Ritual – Treat Yourself to a Spa for Your Head

A healthy scalp is the secret to beautiful hair. Ask your loved one to either massage your head fully, with the help of Rosée d’Oasis hair conditioner. A good head massage will contribute to hair growth and make you feel wonderful and weightless. All your worries will disappear, and it will leave you refreshed and relaxed. Studies have shown that massage can increase the production of certain chemicals in the body, including endorphins and serotonin. If you’ve had a hard day and your muscles hurt, a head spa will relieve pain by improving circulation and removing muscle tension.

Sure summer is not here, but meanwhile, you can still pamper and treat yourself to a warm bath, an enchanting vapour or a head massage while looking at the snowflakes falling. How relaxing!
