Okay so summer is not quite over here in New England, and we are NOT rushing it by any means. However, right now there are many people who are in the throes of ‘back-to-school’ stress. Class schedules, work schedules, school supplies, sports sign-ups – yipes!!
Our showrooms are not named ‘Ultimate’ for nothing – we are the experts in helping everyone achieve what we’d like to think of as bathroom Zen – that’s right – Zen. In our hurry up and get it done world, it is critically important for people to take a few moments for both mental AND physical calm. To that end, we’d like to recommend a few products that really will help you feel as though your bathing ritual; no matter what time of day, is as good as any luxury spa (without the spa cost of course!)
If you have a tub, you can easily add some of these products to ensure that your tub-time is as relaxing as it should be.
Bain Ultra has the perfect pillow (okay they call it a cushion); it’s equipped with magnets that keep it in place and the ultra-resistant polyurethane construction makes it comfortable and soft to the touch and fully waterproof.
They also want you to be able to put your feet up – literally. Their legrest was designed to help provide the best positioning for a whirlpool, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use it in your tub. Elevating your feet at the end of a long day is always a good idea.
Other ways to bring that spa feeling to your bath experience is to use aromatherapy oils. Aromatherapy uses plant materials and aromatic plant oils, including essential oils, and other aromatic compounds for the purpose of altering one’s mood, cognitive, psychological or physical wellbeing. You can use them by putting a drop or two in your bath, or if you have a steam shower and a showerhead with a reservoir, you can add a drop or two there instead.
ThermaSol has a a lovely selection of essential oils.
ThermaSol has been the leader in home steam showers since they invented the first in-home generator in 1958! If any one brand understands the benefits of steam – it’s ThermaSol. Their entire mission is to bring the spa experience into the home. Along with their Essential Oils, they also offer other ‘spa-like’ accessories that will help you relax. If you do not have a tub, try their new shower seat. Once you realize that there is room in your shower to sit, you will wonder why you hadn’t been doing that all along. ThermaSol’s shower seat is compact, it’s made from Brazilian Walnut (more durable than Teak) and comes in two sizes/shapes.
Two more products to think about as you build or reconfigure your bath to feel more like a spa. If you are enjoying the benefits of a steam shower — there is one other accessory that you should think about if you haven’t already: a fog-free mirror! Again, ThermaSol thinks of everything, and they offer a number of actual fog-free mirror designs. Here is just one:
And last but not least…one more product for your tub. These bath caddy’s are quite useful when you want to have everything at your fingertips. This one is from Sharper Image, but you can find them in many other stores.
Now get in there and start relaxing!
