WHEN it comes to making your bathroom a place for a little sanctuary over the festive season, there are a couple of things to put on your tick list.
Light, warmth and fragrance are a good place to start. A warm room will help to let your body relax more quickly and if the air temperature is closer to the water temperature then this will help to trick your skin into not knowing when the water ends and the air begins.
If that is not so easy, then try popping a heated towel rail on for 20 minutes before you run the bath, so that that when you step out of the bath you can wrap yourself in a warm towel or bathrobe.
Choosing a fleecy bathrobe that is designed for warmth with a fleece outer and practicality with an absorbent towelling lining will help to create a sensation of luxury for your bathtime treat.
The Spa Living bathrobe is unisex and comes in a smart gift presentation box. Priced £70, it is used by many luxurious spas for its super soft and lightweight feel.
Dim the lights and try lighting an aromatic candle for a warm glow and see how a soothing fragrance can change the mood of your bathroom. Choose a candle with a wax that burns cleanly with a pure aromatic fragrance.
We love the Elemis Frangipani Glow candle — an exotic blend of coconut, ylang-ylang and vanilla from Polynesia. Just close your eyes and this fragrance will transport you to faraway shores.
The candle is £27.50. For more spa-inspired gift ideas, visit www.spaliving.co.uk
