Hot towels are regularly used to relax people after shaves, during facials or at the end of long-haul flights. Although they are often considered a luxury, they are actually very simple to make yourself. It doesn't take more than a minute, and holding a hot towel to your face and body is a good way to de-stress at the end of the day. It is also possible to add essential oils to the towel to create your own aromatherapy hot towel experience.
