9 Ways to Create a Bathtime Oasis


9 Ways to Create a Bathtime Oasis

Part of the beauty of taking a bath is the ritual of creating the space for yourself to relax and unwind. How you create an external sacred bath space sets the foundation for you to tap into your internal sacred space to provide yourself with nourishment that goes beyond the surface and seeps into the soul. While we all have only so many resources (and finances!) at our disposal, here are some little things you can do that can have a big impact as you create the bathtub ambiance of your dreams or at least a little slice of an oasis that your friends will all be swooning over.


1. Choose your BEING product(s)- Our bath products set the tone for your bathing experience, and they each have distinct ingredients and properties that ground, elevate, and clear skin + soul. 

For a restorative, detoxifying soak, try our:
Treat Milk Batharrowroot powder, tea tree, and thyme combine with the renowned healing properties of colloidal oatmeal to deliver itch and respiratory relief, allowing the body and mind to relax and restore balance

For a grounding, transforming soak try our:
Drift Salt Bath - Hiwa Kai Hawaiian Black Lava Salt and Dead Sea Salt combine with essential oils of atlas cedarwood and juniper berry to increase blood flow, balance, and inspire mental strength and stability

For an invigorating, uplifting soak, try our:
Float Salt Bath - French green clay and Dead Sea Salt combine with essential oils of cypress and peppermint to detoxify the body and clarify the mind

For a completely relaxing, nourishing soak, try our:
Release Milk Bath - Rose and West Indian Sandalwood oil along with coconut milk and cocoa butter soften the skin, alleviate tension, and heighten mood and sensuality

For a clarifying, meditative floral soak, try our:
Still Salt Bath - Himalayan Pink Salt and Dead Sea Salt relieve the body while essential oils of geranium and ylang-ylang settle the mind

And if you want to go for a bath + face dual ritual, indulge in one of our Complexion Clays during your soak for a complete self-care ritual.

2. Plants and flowers - Plants and flowers instantly bring life into any space and when brought around a bathtub or foot bath, create a welcoming, serene environment for you to close your eyes and imagine you’re bathing deep in the Cloud Forests of Costa Rica or in a field of flowers on a summer’s day.

3. Crystals - Whether you meditate with crystals or think they’re too woo, we can all agree that they’re just so dang beautiful and add light, glimmer, and a hint of magic into any space.

4. Candles - We can’t get enough of candles and the perfect ambiance they help create. Whether they’re tea lights, votives, or artisan candles, we say the more the merrier. Just make sure that they’re free of paraffin wax (it releases carcinogenic soot when burned), so opt for vegetable-based waxes like soy, hemp, etc that have cotton wicks, and all-natural fragrances additives like essential oils.

5. Incense, sage, palo santo, essential oils, etc - Sage and palo santo are two of our favorites for clearing the air energetically, and they both have a grounding, relaxing. Or pick your favorite essential oils to diffuse or incense to burn to heighten the aroma.
    6. Beverage - no bath-time ritual is complete without a beverage to accompany your relaxation time. We have some bath-time cocktails coming up on the blog throughout the month, or if you prefer a non-alcoholic beverage, you can opt for some herbal tea to encourage your body to relax and unwind. 

      7. Book and/or journal - while spending some time with eyes closed and completely relaxing into bathtub bliss is always an essential part of our bath rituals, it can be nice to spend some time catching up on one of your favorite books or reflecting on the day by writing in your journal.

      8. Bath tray - this helps keep your book/journal dry and your beverage always within reach. If you’re going for a bath + face mask combo, you can keep your Complexion Clay here for easy application as well as a little hand towel to wipe your face clean when you’re done. 

      9. The reminder that you are worthy and deserving of taking care of yourself. Sometimes, this belief and thought process is our biggest roadblock to actually creating time to take care of ourselves. We think that if we dedicate some time to ourselves that we’re being selfish. We think that there are so many other things that need to be done before we can relax let go that we shouldn’t dare unplug and turn off the mental hamster wheel of the day.

      Well, friends, we at BEING are here to tell those little voices to go away, to gently push you turn off the phone and shut down the computer (because it can wait until tomorrow), and to remind you that you, as much as anyone else, are deserving of your care and attention. Click here to shop our bath products before you unplug. Get on your way to creating your own sacred bath-time space and find your own bath-time oasis ritual.

      I loved this article! It’s difficult living in a world that insists we are only worthy as consumers and must complete ourselves by buying products, changing the way our faces look with cosmetic surgery and telling ourselves “oh if i only did…. (fill in the blank) then I would be so much better off.” It is especially difficult being a woman and having a larger target on our backs from a looooooonggg history of the objectification of women. We all need to remind ourselves that we are enough as it is and that it’s important to give yourself the gift of not thinking, not putting yourself down and relaxing instead. These thoughts are just as, if not more important than the ones we have during the day on a regular basis. This article made me want to reinvent the ways I want to bathe… I feel like I’ve been doing it all wrong and I’m definitely going to be more present and ritualistic when it comes to creating a space that’s safe for me to take care of myself and let go.
