My bathing experience will never be complete without that fresh aroma of flowers or the like. I know some of you also has that ritual before dip in the tub and relax. For many, an odorless or bad smelling bathroom could ruin the entire look and appeal of it. Even if you don’t have the best interior, once you got a clean and fresh smelling bathroom, bathing will be extra invigorating.
Bathrooms do tend to have fairly harsh lighting. This is necessary, since for shaving and putting on makeup you’ll want a clear, bright light that allows you to see exactly what you’re doing. However, that bright, and often fluorescent, lighting is not great for creating a calming atmosphere.
Scented candles, however, are perfect for making a soft, warm glow that’s just enough to see by, but isn’t harsh or strong. Light plays an important part in relaxation, since we’re biologically designed to have more energy and adrenalin in bright light conditions, such as day time, and then to calm down and relax as light decreases.
