Guide to a Relaxing Bath

If you think baths are just for autumn and winter, then think again! 

Self-care bath rituals have a place all year round. After all, relaxation is no less important in spring and summer, just because the sun stays out longer. At SABON, we’re big advocates of taking a luxurious, fragrant, and energizing self-care bath whenever you need it.

If that sounds like the exact thing your body and soul need right now, then do not rush into it — read our guide first. Here, we will reveal to you the four, essential steps to a deeply indulgent, self-care bath ritual, and show you how to have the best bath, every time.

Benefits of a Luxurious, Relaxing Bath

Before uncovering the secrets to a glorious self-care bath routine, let’s talk briefly about why your bath should have a little luxury in the first place.

Relaxation is one of them, of course. But the truth is that there is much more to a bubble bath routine than closing your eyes and winding down, cocooned by warm water.

For example, treating yourself to regular baths can also function as a mood boost. Research has discovered that warm baths can help reduce the production of cortisol while enhancing the release of serotonin.

In turn, this has led some experts to suggest that regular, warm baths of the duration of at least 30 minutes can ease symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression.

Warm baths can also be transformational when experiencing soreness in your muscles or joints — and can be particularly comforting and pain-relieving during the menstrual phase of your monthly cycle.

Let’s now show you how you can achieve all these amazing benefits, by choosing the best luxury bath products from SABON.

Step 1: Begin with a Refreshing Exfoliation

Before stepping into your bathtub, set aside a few minutes to treat yourself to a gentle, refreshing exfoliation. Our iconic Body Scrub is formulated with Dead Sea salts, four potent botanical oils — Almond, Jojoba, Andiroba, and Acai — and Vitamin E.

Apply it before your bath once or twice a week, and let it delicately remove dead skin cells to leave your body silky-smooth.

Step 2: Add Some Luxury Bath Salts

Now you are all ready to start running your bath! For a truly soothing and serene experience, add a spoonful of subtly scented Bath Salts. Enriched with Dead Sea minerals, they will instantly transport your body and mind to a world of fragrant relaxation.

This formulation brims with the goodness of essential minerals like magnesium and calcium, to promote skin balance and support optimal cell metabolism.

Step 3: Let Your Bath Ball Burst

Luxury bath bombs are a must for your indulgent bath, and they add a touch of fizz and playfulness, too. Simply drop a bath ball into the water and watch as it bursts and works its colorful, fragrant magic.

The ball will slowly reveal its heart, where energizing Dead Sea minerals, calming Lavender, and a spicy, earthy Patchouli Lavender Vanilla fragrance blend to create the most sumptuous, sensual bath experience.

Step 4: Mindfully Apply Your Body Cream

Your decadent bath experience doesn’t end here. Now, it’s time to pamper yourself with a luxurious body cream

One of our newest formulations features our signature Patchouli Lavender Vanilla blend, to envelope your senses while nourishing and repairing dry skin, as well as a combination of Shea Butter, Rose of Jericho, Oleic Acid, Vitamin C and E, Omega-3, and Omega-6 fatty acids.

The result? A non-greasy, incredibly moisturizing body lotion that perfectly concludes your luxury bath time ritual.
