10 Ways To Turn Your Shower Into A Sanctuary

Curating spaces that emit a calm, comfortable atmosphere within our own dwellings is more vital than ever; especially with most of us still abiding by safer-at-home orders. Home has truly become where the heart is and the day starts and ends with our bedrooms and bathrooms. A hot shower does more than just warm your soul. According to popular studies, it can also help you fall asleep faster, open up your pores, and alleviate congestion. The big question is: how do you make your shower as worth-it as possible?

If your capability to rest and relax has become comprised as of late (aka you’re up late doom-scrolling & online shopping for the best gifts to buy before they sell out), then consult the list of tips and tricks ahead to make your shower routine into an at-home, wind-down sanctuary — inspirational photos included.

Tip #1: Add a caddy…

Knocking over your candles, soaps and bath bombs makes for an unpleasant showering experience, so having a utilitarian (yet cute) bathtub caddy ready to go means you won’t have to replace your wet iPhone or novel after it falls beneath the spray. Set yours up for music-listening or use a shower-head iteration to store your essentials. These can be used for both showers and baths.

Tip #2: Light some candles…

The right candle can create ambience in any room, and they’re particularly pleasing to light in a dimmed bathroom. Hit the switch and let your favorite scents take you to a place of calm as you sing your most-played shower tunes.

Tip #3: Go crazy with plants…

Turn your shower space into a greenhouse by adding some vivid plants to improve air quality, increase energy levels, and evoke happiness. You can never have too many, right?

Tip #4: Hang some eucalyptus branches…

Eucalyptus is an aromatic plant that can fill your steamy shower with a calm-inducing fragrance. One study discovered that eucalyptus essential oil has anti-inflammatory benefits, while another suggested using it for its antifungal powers. It also helps to ease sore throats and scratchy coughs. Win-win. Hang one on your shower head to indulge in its qualities.

Tip #5: Surround yourself with crystals…

Some practitioners believe that crystals have the power to bring certain energies into your life, and for those who indulge in the crystal world — why not add them to your bathtime routine? Line your countertops and bathtub ledges with energising gemstones.

Tip #6: Bring in the diffuser…

Load up your essential oil diffuser, then tote it into the bathroom. It can rest on your toilet lid while pumping the enclosed space with oils like citrus, peppermint, or energizing rosemary. Aromatherapy, according to this study, can be used to alleviate anxiety, sleep problems, and blood pressure although it shouldn’t be used as a medical replacement for these issues.

Tip #7: Invest in the right towels…

Tip #8: Splurge on the soap…

What’s more soothing than lathering your body after a long workday with moisturising body washes and soaps? Nothing, if you ask me. Pick ingredients that make you feel both clean and deserving.

Tip #9: Wear a mask…

Face masks, especially sheet masks, are perfect for wearing during a luxe shower experience as the steam can allow it to sink deeper into your pores. Opt for hydrating masks for nourishment, and a little glow-up.

Tip #10: Have a pair of cushy slippers waiting…

What’s more spa-like than stepping out of a steaming shower straight into a pair of soft slippers? Slippers are part of the experience, and they can carry you from your nighttime routine right to bed.
