How to Add Beach Vibes to Your Bathtub
What is it about the beach that we all love so much? Is it the pleasingly coarse sand nestled between our toes? Maybe it’s the combination of cool breeze and warm sunshine. Whatever it is, beach vibes are universally sought after. Unfortunately, not everyone lives on the coast and can enjoy beachfront benefits. Luckily, that doesn’t mean everyone can’t partake in a little coastal fever from home. In fact, you can turn your bath (both room and tub) into a seaside haven. All it takes is the right ingredients and a little imagination.
Prep Your Space
First things first: get your space prepped. No one loves an overly crowded beach, so do your best to recreate a wide-open coast by putting away unnecessary toiletries and such. Once you’ve got everything crisp and clean, think about hanging a beach-inspired piece of art. There are many coastal avenues you can take, so your decorating cues depends on what vibe you’re going for: Hamptons hangout? Cape Cod kickback? California surf club? After you’ve checked that decision off your list, crack a window to let some fresh air into your own “private beach.”
Set the Mood
Now that you’ve got the look of your space settled, it’s time we turn to how you’ll enjoy the space. Set the mood aromatically by diffusing our Calm ‘Em Down synergy blend. One of the most serene blends you’re likely to come across, Calm ‘Em Down creates a stress-free atmosphere with an aroma that brings to mind warm rays and summer days. If you’re looking for a more intense blast of brightness, look to our Sunshine Spice synergy blend. This blend finds citrusy and peppery notes commingling, creating a positive and mood-boosting aroma. It’s almost like soaking in your daily allotment of vitamin D.
Burn Some Good Vibes
No beachy bathtub soak is complete without a diffuser running. Luckily, we have some fantastic options that fit the mood of “Oceanfront Oasis.” For a classically soothing aroma, look to French Lavender Sage. This blend fills the air with a botanical aroma and promotes emotional balance. Think of French Lavender Sage as your own personal beach surrounded by blooming flowers. Not bad, right? For a brighter, more rejuvenating aroma, there’s the Tangerine Jasmine synergy blend. Here you’ll find layered citrus notes and florals that can prompt feelings of passion that one might feel when falling in love with a tropical island.
The Main Event
We’d be remiss if we didn’t explore how to enjoy a seaside-like soak. Once you’ve got the bathwater running, reach for Lavender Magnolia, Tangerine Jasmine or Grapefruit Pink Pepper bath salt. While these aromatic bath salts are different, each of them sets a relaxing mood and feels like pleasant grains of beach sand against your skin. Along with its beachy feeling, these bath salts work to support the lymphatic system and reduce inflammation.
When it comes to sudding up, don’t settle. With each EG bar soap rife with therapeutic benefits, you can’t go wrong with any of them. For the coastal feel though, we recommend trying the Lemongrass or Charcoal. Washing away the day’s worries with Lemongrass might be especially soothing, as its combination of citrus, sweet and green notes place you directly on the beach of some distant, tropical locale. As if that weren’t swell enough, EG’s soaps help your skin look its best so that you can confidently strut your stuff on the real thing.
