6 bath time ‘recipe’ ideas to treat yourself

 In Skin Care

There’s something sacred about baths. It’s a time just for you, dare anyone enter. The kids may try but will soon learn it’s ‘Mum’s time to relax.’ Your partner knows it’s for your sanity and won’t bother you. Your dog might wander in and take refuge too, but that’s okay.

At a time like now, it’s important to know when you need to take a breather. Baths also give you space to think, read, listen to a YouTube video, and reflect. There are few places that give permission to do absolutely nothing. And, you’ll emerge reborn (and ready to apply your Skin Serum).

With all this extra time at home (and elevated stress), you’re probably frequenting that beckoning bathtub even more. So, here’s some ideas to froth up your bath ritual with ‘recipes’ for tub time. One for every day of the week? Yes, ma’am.

1 Bath Time For calming…

Feeling frazzled and fired up, watching too much news? Run a lavender infused bath to soak up all that stress.  You’ll need the following items:

  • 1 cup Epsom salts
  • 1/2 cup lavender buds
  • 1 tbsp oil (coconut, almond, jojoba or grapeseed)
  • 10 drops lavender essential oil
  • 2 drops chamomile essential oil.

 For energising…

Start the day off, lifting your mood with a party of revitalizing herbs and spices. This is a great recipe for moving stagnant energy, when you’re looking at the same views.

Grab these zesty items:

    • 1 cup Epsom salts
    • 1/4 cup rosemary
    • 1 tbsp oil (coconut, almond, jojoba or grapeseed)
    • 5 drops orange essential oil
    • 2 drops lime essential oil
    • 1 drop rosemary essential oil
    • 1 drop ginger essential oil.

3 - Skin Serum For softening…

Milk and honey softens and boosts the skin, for all-over hydration. This recipe cleanses, restores and moisturizes the body… but do not put it on your face (it’s not designed for it).

      • 1 cup Epsom salts
      • 1/2 cup non-fat powdered milk
      • 2 tsp honey
      • 1/2 cup baking soda
      • 1 tbsp oil (coconut, almond, jojoba or grapeseed)
      • 4 drops chamomile essential oil.

4 - Bath time For immunity…

If you’re feeling sick, you’re going to love this therapeutic bath. It’s got ginger in it, one of the natural healing remedies. Revive your body with these restorative ingredients:

      • 1 cup Epsom salts
      • 1 tsp elder flowers
      • 1 tsp fresh rosemary
      • 1 tbsp oil (coconut, almond, jojoba or grapeseed)
      • 3 drops tea tree
      • 2 drops lavender
      • 1 drop peppermint
      • 1 drop eucalyptus
      • 1 drop ginger.

5 - Skin Serum For detoxing…

Feel out of sorts with changes in routine, being home all the time, and eating different foods? You’re not alone. After a couple testing weeks, being home 24/7,  you’re, no doubt, ready to move into the ‘it’s time to take care of myself’ stage. This is the de-iso-toxing recipe to kick it off:

      • 1 cup Epsom salts
      • 1/2 cup sea salt
      • 1/2 cup baking soda or apple cider vinegar
      • 2 1/2 tbsp ground ginger
      • 5 drops of your favourite essential oil.

 For stabilising…

Green tea stabilises and boosts moods, with all-round healing properties. Brew two cups of herbal tea and strain it into running water. Place the remaining herbs in a thin washcloth and tie tightly with a hairband. Let it rest on the surface of the bath for extra, diffusing goodness.

While these recipes work wonders on the body, our face has different needs. After every peak-soak-experience, make sure you give your face the nutrients it requires with Zinzino’s Skin Serum.

The 24-hour Skin Serum for your face and neck reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It rejuvenates by rebuilding the extra-cellular matrix, providing tensile strength and elasticity to the skin. Get that ‘I’ve been on holiday glow’ (in isolation) with Skin Serum.

Let’s re-balance the world… starting with your skin.
