Taking a bath is up there as one of my favourite past times, there is something just so relaxing about stepping into the warm, soapy water with a mug of tea (or wine!) in one hand and a good book in the other. I find my stresses and concerns from the day just seem to drift away as I sink into the tub.
I must admit however I have certain bathing routine that I like to stick too; this involves lighting as many candles as I can physically balance on my bathroom furniture, pouring in a deliciously smelling bath oil Neom Organics Perfect Night Sleep is one of my favourites and having a lovely scented natural soap to hand.
Growing up in North Devon, Blanch and I would often visit the coastal village of Clovelly where a handmade soap company is based that creates natural products made from botanical ingredients and packaged in the most lovely printed paper. We have always had soap from The Clovelly Soap Company at our home in Croyde and since moving to London I have always liked to have a couple of the travel sized ones ready for that relaxing evening in the tub.
As well as soap The Clovelly Soap Company creates the loveliest selection of candles, diffusers and body balms all made from natural ingredients and oils. Each product is handmade and produced locally in their Devon based workshop.
Some of my favourites scented soaps include ‘Lavender, Patchouli and Frankincense’ a floral yet calming blend that is great smoothing out dry, rough skin and ‘Rosemary and Orange’ as it contains exfoliating properties that is perfect for hard working hands and feet.
These natural scented soaps combined with a warm relaxing bath can help with many great health benefits including providing relief for skin conditions, muscle pain and better sleep. Therefore the next time you may be feeling slightly overworked or too tired, we urge you to turn on those taps, run yourself a warm bath and watch how your stresses fade away.
