Turn your bathroom into a day-spa: introducing 7 easy tips

An everyday routine can be turned into luxurious pampering with a few small details. We chose seven products to create a spa feeling at home or summer cottage, making an evening sauna or a morning shower the best moment of the day.

Salt soaps from the Hetkinen collection
The Hetkinen-series features a collection of all-natural salt soaps, lip balms, hand balms, and veggie wax candles.

Pamper your skin – and your senses

The Finnish Hetkinen natural cosmetics brand creates gentle soaps and balms made from the purest natural ingredients. The bio-degradable pine and peppermint salt soap contains skin-nurturing minerals that nourish the skin together with indulgent essential oils. The invigorating fragrance and the gorgeous soap dish crafted from Finnish pine heartwood bring in the serene feeling of vast Scandinavian pine forests.

Grab a seat

A petite stool makes for a terrific spot to rest awhile after bathing, but it also serves as a clever side table for bathroom accessories. The Airisto seat designed by Joanna Laajisto gives the space a warm, natural mood and allows you to take a moment to bask in the after sauna euphoria.
