We’re noticing that self-care has become a trending hashtag lately. Naturally, we are thrilled that everyone is finally jumping on the band-wagon, (or shall we say, jumping in the bath-tub). Nevertheless, at Sugar + Spruce, we don’t think self-care is a one time deal; it’s a way of life! Our customers are our friends, and we’re here to make sure your bath-time routine is something you look forward to, and can’t do without! I mean who WOULDN’T want to jump into a bath of Lavender Fields or slip away into The Abyss?
Self-care can mean two things. It can be the not-so-fun time to file your taxes, enforce a healthy eating regimen of broccoli and chicken, and working up a sweat at the gym. Self-care does include the dirty, but then there’s the wash and repeat — Sugar + Spruce at your service!
If we had it our way, every day would include a little “spruce” me up time. But if we had to choose just one day, we think Self-Care Sundays, or Sugar + Spruce Sundays, as it were, are the best way to set your week up for success! This means taking a long, relaxing bath with cheeky luxurious smell-goods you can only find at Sugar + Spruce!
First off, leave the phone outside of the bathroom. You don’t have to be a scientist to know that electronics and water don’t go together! But here’s a little science behind why we’re big proponents of an electronic- free candle-lit bath-time. The bright lighting we have in our houses and that little rectangle of light that lives in our hands emit white, green, and blue light (UV) that tricks our bodies into thinking it’s still daytime! In turn, our bodies don’t flip off the switch internally and our circadian rhythm is put on hold! The peaceful effect of candle light induces a calm state of mind. What’s more? At Sugar + Spruce, we use phthalate free fragrance oils for our 100% soy wax candles with cotton wicks to ensure clean burning.
The prettier the better. Our bath bombs turn bathwater into a mermaid lagoon with tides of red, violet, and everything in between!
No bath time is complete without leaving your skin nourished and smooth. Our Calendula Creme leaves your skin feeling luxuriously soft, ready to slip into bed like silk over glass.
It’s never too late to start a Sugar + Spruce Sunday routine for the rest of 2018. Stop by Sugar + Spruce, and you’ll see what we mean!
Until next time, Sugar!
