You’ve finally found the time to slip into a warm bath to soak the day’s stresses away and you deserve to maximize every minute of relaxation. Though a 15-minute bath won’t compare to an hour-long treatment at the spa, you can add a few simple touches to your bathroom to make your “me time” even more enjoyable. Here are five simple ways to add pamper factor to your bath.

1. Set the mood

Though sinking into a tub of balmy water can tame tension, accessorizing your bathroom with spa decor will go a long way in de-stressing your mind and body. Hang a calming water print in eye’s view that you can gaze at while you soak. Place a basket of rolled up towels alongside the tub. Set a fountain tubside or on the counter. Arrange plants on a shelf. Line candles around the tub’s edge, windowsill, or shelves — let them flicker while you melt into the water.

2. Let music let you drift

Make a playlist of relaxing music that you can listen to while you soak. Whether you enjoy nature sounds or instrumentals, just find tunes that take your mind to a place of calm. Keep the music loud enough to hear but not so loud that it actually becomes a stress.

3. Ahhhroma

Add essential oils to your bathtime. Place a few drops in a diffuser and/or in your bath. Relaxing scents include lavender, sandalwood, frankincense, chamomile and ylang ylang. Sit back and take a deep breath.

4. Accessorize

Make your bath the ulimate in relaxation by investing in a high-quality bath pillow that you can rest your back, neck and head on (far more comfy than the hard tub side). Get a bath caddy that can hold body wash, skin products, loofah, exfoliating mitt and other bath products you use; this will keep them organized and within easy reach.

5. End plush

Don’t let a rough towel or robe put a scratchy ending on your bath. Dry off with a super sized and ultra soft towel and slip on a plush robe to let your relaxation linger a little longer before you re-enter reality.
