Aromatherapy:

When thinking of ways to make your bathroom into more of a wellness spa, don’t leave out the fragrant elements that can take you there. I always sprinkle eucalyptus, lavender or tea tree oils in the corners of my shower while I am showering to give myself that extra aromatherapy hit. I keep these little bottles at the ready and use them often because not only do they make me feel good, but that aromatic steam wafts through the house and makes everything smell amazing.

And then there was LIGHT:

Even if your main lighting is put on a dimmer, nothing is more relaxing than candlelight. Make sure you always remember to give yourself enough surface space during the design process not only for your beauty routine, but for those little countertop extras that can really help inspire peace and beauty inside your bathroom.
