Make Your Shower a Sanctuary With These Ideas


The shower is your chance to indulge in a mini spa treatment. Try these ideas to ensure your shower looks and feels like your own personal sanctuary.

Simplify products

Do away with bright colored labels, tons of bottles and jars, or razors, sponges, washcloths, etc. Instead simplify by pouring shampoos, conditioners, and body wash into neutral looking jars. Glass jars with pumps are ideal…make sure whatever you are reaching for makes you feel like you are in a spa.

Add something green

Plants can instantly make you feel like you are in a private oasis, or your own personal outdoor shower. This works well if there is some natural light in your shower. There are a variety of plants that will thrive in the bathroom environment…one of the best is the philodendron which can live in a vase or jar with just a small amount of water.

Embrace aromatherapy

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for their healing power and aromas…and the shower is a perfect place to harness all that power. Tie eucalyptus, lavender or lemongrass with twine and hang in your shower. The steam will bring out all the healing aromas.

Make your own face mask

It’s easy to pamper yourself with a few homemade face masks with all-natural ingredients. From yogurt to mustard, or  lemons, there is something for every skincare type or challenge. While some masks will have to be stored in the refrigerator, others can be kept in airtight containers for easy access while in the shower.
