Forest therapy is a new trend that stems from the ancient tradition of immersing yourself in nature.

A relaxing bath can work wonders on your mental health and by combining a relaxing soak in the tub with forest therapy, you can reap the benefits for both your physical and mental health.


Although nothing beats the real thing, you can recreate some of the magic of the outdoors through forest scents. Beauty brands are currently jumping on the trend by mixing forest scents into their bath products. Aromatherapy can have a powerful healing effect on the body and mind.

“Mother Nature is getting her moment in the sun-dappled spotlight,” Sarah Ivens told Glamor. “Research published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology shows that being exposed to restorative environments such as a forest, lake or beach restores mental energy and that natural beauty inspires feelings of awe which gives a secondary brain boost.

“Studies even prove how simply looking at pictures of nature increases our positive thinking, so think about switching the lock screen photo on your phone to a favorite nature photo from a previous holiday.”


Treat yourself to the healing power of nature and indulge in forest therapy today.
