Hygge Bathtime

It is definitely the season to be cosy, warm and comfortable when you arrive home from work, and #TeamCoco are all about the relaxing effects that hygge can have on your mind and body.

We have looked at a few ways of how you can turn your bathroom into a luxurious hygge bathtime for your self-care date. Simply set aside a couple of hours and spend an evening in the bath relaxing to your favourite meditation tunes while you surround yourself with a few luxuries that are reserved for much needed calmness.

Lets start with setting the scene, you will need a few candles, and a dim light in the bathroom, then you can start running a bath by adding some muscle relaxing bubbles, or a seaweed bath if you’re feeling adventurous. Don’t forget to set up your bath caddy with a luxurious soap, a loofah and a book or magazine. Once these are in place make sure you’ve got a hair treatment kit and a face mask at the ready, so that you can hygge in style.
