Hello Lifestyle Guide Readers!
When you think of baths, what comes to mind? Roman communal baths? Instagram couples? If it’s
not the ultimate spa experience, then keep reading. I can’t remember the first time I had an Epsom
salt bath, but I do remember feeling that overwhelming sense of calm, being totally zen and having
the best deep sleep of my life, no exaggeration.
Epsom salts are not the same as table salts, they hail from a small English town, called Epsom. They
are made of inorganic minerals magnesium, sulphur and oxygen. And they are crucial to any DIY spa experience as magnesium is known to promote relaxation, soothe sore muscles, release tension
from the mind and body and detoxify the skin.
I tend to have my bath when no one else is in the house, private spa for one? Yes please. With the
kids back to school and with most of us still working from home day time spa sessions are here.
With any spa experience there’s a bit of prep involved, I like to exfoliate my lips with The Glowcery’s Coconut Crumble lip scrub, and make sure I have a pint glass of water placed within reaching distance of the bath. I always drink mine at room temperature, but whatever temp you prefer just make sure you have some water cos you’re going to get hot, really hot and staying hydrated is key to reaching full zen mode.
Before settling in I like to set the scene here’s my routine:
1. Thoroughly scrub the tub if you’re a frequent shower taker this is especially important. You
don’t want to be soaking in residual soap scum
2. Run the bath hot, I mean hot, hot, allow to cool until bearable to touch (the steamier the
3. Add two big handfuls of Epsom salts to your bath
4. A few drops of essential oil (your choice)
5. Play relaxing music in the background – I usually play 432 hz or 741hz playlist on YouTube as
this frequency music helps to cleanse negative energy
Scene set, the time has come, step in and soak until you can’t soak no more. I usually last two hours, sometimes less or more depending on stress levels. When soaking I switch off, no thinking about work, what I’m going to have for lunch, or trying to remember the name of the influencer who’s outfit I liked. Nothing just me being present in the tube. It takes a few goes to quieten your mind, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be able to do it instantly bath or no bath.
I emerge feeling ethereal like an omnipresent meditation guru, so calm, as I watch my stresses wash down the plug hole.
With the stresses that come with everyday life and the often but futile attempt to not be pulled into
an Instagram ‘scroll hole’. Epsom salt baths have now become a permanent feature in my weekly
routine, like a child waiting to raid the sweet section at Woolworths, remember that? I look forward
to doing it every week. So carve out some time for yourself, mix up an Epsom salt bath, step in,
unplug and soak. Epsom salt baths should come with a warning; relaxation guaranteed, every time. Remember to follow Roshanne for more tips an tricks on insta @theglowceryshop
