Every day after work, I would come home exhausted and stressed. My muscles would ache, even though I was doing nothing but sitting in an office chair, typing on a computer while staring into a screen for hours. All I would want to do is lay down on the bed and go to sleep until the next day, where I would have to do it all over again. A coworker of mine suggested that I buy some products from Waterlilies and Company and have my own little spa and aromatherapy session at home. She had been buying products from there for a while and said that it really helped her relax after a long day.
I bought some essential oils, soaps, scrubs, and bubble bath mixture and planned to soak in the tub while listening to my favorite music as soon as I got home. The day that I decided to do all of this was a particularly rough day at work. I was faced with a lot of work to do and every second that I looked at the computer screen, it felt like my eyes were burning. I started to get a headache, and my back was starting to ache from sitting in that office chair for so long. I got up to stretch every 20 minutes, but that wasn’t enough.
Once I got home, I filled the tub with warm water, poured in the bubble bath mix, put some oil in the diffuser, and started washing myself with the soap and scrubber. The smells were so relaxing, and the warm water felt so good all over my skin that I just sat there for a couple of hours. I even fell asleep in the tub and when I woke up, I felt like a new person. Afterward, I slipped into my bath robe and ate a piece of my favorite chocolate cake.
