#ArtOfTheBath: rise + shine

January 14, 2019

Some mornings are harder than others to get out of bed. Perhaps you stayed up too late exploring all of the Bandersnatch endings or maybe you’re simply not a morning person. Either way, I relate. As a self-proclaimed nightowl, I’ve found that setting routines for the AM can change my perspective in the morning. Waking up early for a yoga or Soulcycle class can be motivating, so I figured why not give the #ArtOfTheBath a shot? So after much research, I present to you #AOTB: rise + shine edition.

#ArtOfTheBath: new year refresh

January 7, 2019

While the new year offers optimism and opportunity, it can also present a lot of pressure. If your Instagram feed is anything like mine, you’re being bombarded with crisp, new activewear, renewed Soulcycle memberships, and lofty expectations for the year ahead. And though I’m all about resolutions, I think everyone could add “being gentle toward myself” to their 2019 list. It’s great to stick to your guns and book that class knowing you’ll have to pay $20 to cancel, but your off-days are just as important for your headspace. That said, I’ve created a refreshing #ArtOfTheBath for your off-days this year. Or even your on-days. If you ask me, weekly bathtime is A-OK as far as resolutions go.

#ArtOfTheBath: holiday vibes edition

December 4, 2018

Ahh, the holidays — the most wonderful time of the year. Whether you’re looking forward to indulging in glühwein (mulled wine, that is) or tucking into your annual screening of Love Actually, there’s no denying the season comes with its fair share of stress, too. If you can, I highly recommend blocking an evening on your calendar between office parties and gift wrapping to slow down and take care of yourself. Read on for our cozy #ArtOfTheBath tips — curated specifically for the holiday season.



Insider tip: our holiday candle flew off the shelves during Brown Amber weekend, but it’s still available in our Home for the Holidays Set. Balsam fir, scotch pine, and cinnamon blend together to create a warm aroma, perfectly suited for the season.



The bath is my favorite place to read. Since it’s definitely a danger zone for iPhones, I find that I don’t get sidetracked by texts or end up scrolling mindlessly. Instead, I’m able to focus on the pages of a book. For this #AOTB, I recommend diving into this Crystal Guide. It’s beautiful and full of juicy “ah-ha” moments. Plus, it can spark some holiday gifting ideas. Shopping for stocking stuffers for someone moving into a new home? The Guide recommends smoky quartz for energy cleansing.



Our Home for the Holidays Set also includes our ultra-dreamy Milk Bath. Made with organic dehydrated coconut milk, the sweet, powdery formulation melts into a cloudy bath when mixed with water. (File under: smells like heaven.)



Combine a classic holiday treat like this peppermint bark (available at milk + honey locations) with a glass of clean-crafted wine. We recommend this fruity, bold Malbec. Don’t forget to pair it with a generous glass of ice water so you stay hydrated throughout your cozy, seasonal bath.



Finally, turn on our holiday playlist and tune out the shopping stress. Your checklist can wait — promise.

create a relaxing space for the season

November 19, 2018

Practicing self-care is essential when you’re feeling burned out or stressed. Being able to relax, rest, and recuperate should be easy, but it may seem difficult to work into a busy schedule. Check out the three tips below for ways to properly care for your mind and body from the comfort and convenience of your own home.


  1. Create a private sanctuary at home.

Taking care of your mental space is just as important as your physical health. Designate a space in your home to retreat to when you want some alone time, want to reflect on your day, or simply want to rest. You don’t need to dedicate an entire room to this, in fact, a small corner in your living room or bedroom will work wonders. The size of your cozy nook doesn’t matter as long as you feel comfortable and secure in your surroundings.


The way you design your home environment can affect your overall mood and wellbeing, so make sure you consider interior design psychology tools to improve your mood when picking out color schemes and decor items for your relaxing space. To ensure your living room nook is a tranquil place, choose a neutral color palette. White, grey, and tan will promote relaxation and allow you to reflect without being distracted by bright colors.


Before deciding on decor, it is essential that you pick out durable seating optimized for cozy days in. Don’t base your furnishings solely off style. The best way to set up a space you can relax comfortably in is by choosing a chair or sofa that provides proper support. We love the versatility of these supportive and sustainable living room pieces. Their seating options provide complete relaxation, plenty of room to pile up the pillows and thick blankets, and are made with durable material that is easy-to-clean, leaving you one less thing to worry about!  


Finally, warm up your relaxing nook with accessories and decor that are unique to your taste. This decorative teal pillow will add a pop of color to your space and provide you with lumbar support while reading, taking naps, or during long Netflix marathons. Adding in plants will purify the air and provide you with the calm feeling of the natural world, which will improve your mood. Add visual interest to your peaceful nook by placing fresh flowers on your side table in an fun vase (like this one). Bringing the outside world into your home can make you comfortable and more content in your space.  

  1. Soak your stress away.

Stress breeds anxiety which negatively impacts your mental space. Extend your calming experience beyond your cozy nook and into the bathroom to soak away your worries in a hot tub. This relaxing activity is an excellent way to practice self-care and will make you feel at ease. Add a natural muscle soak or a pure bath bomb into your self-care routine to soothe aches and pains. The pure essential oils will detoxify your skin and rebalance your body, leaving you happy and refreshed after a long day.


Aromatherapy is another excellent way to practice self-care. You can do this by surrounding yourself (and your bathtub) with essential oil candles or incense, like this sleek lavender and eucalyptus one here. Lavender has many benefits and research suggests it as a useful method for easing stress. The calming and skin-purifying health benefits of lavender make it perfect for cleansing your mind and body and uplifting your spirits.

  1. Immerse yourself in a good book.

Utilize your cozy nook to catch up on some reading. Books have the ability to transport you away to a world outside of your own, and reading can actually provide health benefits. You can check out some of our favorite reads here.

Taking care of your mental, physical, and emotional needs are crucial to feeling happy and motivated after a long day. Reading for self-care allows you to disconnect from technology and recharge in a cozy environment within your own home. Taking a mental break is imperative for good mental health, and reading is an engaging and exciting way to accomplish this.

a beginner’s guide to peels

October 1, 2018

Twice a year, we celebrate glowy skin with our Peel Party. When attendees purchase a peel, they receive a complimentary peel on their account for future use. Still, we realize a lot of people are new to peels or hesitant about the level of commitment that comes with taking the peel plunge. That’s why we asked an esthetician to answer some of our most frequently asked questions regarding peels.


How often should someone get a peel?

We recommend every 4-6 weeks because it takes about 30 days for your skin to turn over. A total of six treatments is recommended.


Do peels hurt?

With most peels, you will feel a tingle. It goes away in a couple minutes, and we follow up with a sunscreen that neutralizes any sensation. Throughout the treatment, we’ll check in on a scale of 1-10 — your peel shouldn’t be painful.


I feel like my skin is in great condition. What would be the benefit of getting a peel?

If you live in Texas, the sun can be intense. There are pollutants in the air that can be detoxed by, say, the antioxidant peel. Some peels can also help to create a protective layer against these pollutants.


Are there any things you can’t or shouldn’t do immediately after getting a peel?

You should avoid heat of any kind. Skip going out in the sun, working out, or taking a really hot shower so your skin can heal.


During milk + honey’s Peel Party, do we buy the peel day of or redeem the peel day of?

When you purchase your peel, an additional peel will be added to your account for the future.


If these answers didn’t help to demystify peels, please leave additional questions in the comments. We’ll ask a milk + honey esthetician and follow up with you in no time.

To reserve your spot during our Peel Party, call 512.236.1115.


what we’re #currentlyreading

September 6, 2018

From our milk + honey HQ office to the halls of our spas and salons, we often find ourselves discussing books. The books we’re reading, what we love to read, what everyone else is reading—you name it, we’ve gone there. We even started #bathtimebookclub earlier this summer to discuss some of our favorite reads of the moment. When we discovered today is National Read A Book Day, we knew it was time to strike up the convo again. In honor of the (admittedly niche) holiday, we’re sharing some of our current favorites.
