Lavender Soap | Why should you use it?
Be it showering or answering nature’s call, your bathroom is your place of comfort, your kingdom and your throne. From treating your bathroom as your karaoke session or concert (usually comes along with bad singing and occasional breaking of mirrors!), relaxation time, a place to let your creativity flow and deep reflection, or even as a place for social media especially when sitting on a toilet bowl.
I’m sure everybody enjoys their shower time and spend a good amount of time in their bathroom in a year! According to a Bathroom Habits Survey from MaP, an average person spends about 30 minutes in a bathroom and that is actually MORE than 182 hours per year for each individual. So make the most of your time in the bathroom and spend it on quality! The soap you use when you shower not only affects your skin but also your mood as well! ◡̈
