Meet the BaTHCalm Team
Founder, Visionary and Kitchen Chemist
As a little girl who once stripped her father’s 20 rose bushes clean of every petal to crush up into perfume for her friends, fragrance has clearly always held a fascination for BathCalm founder Caroline Woodman.
Fast forward 40(ish) years, and not much has changed. Caroline has created the BathCalm range of blends with you in mind. Lying in a warm bath with Epsom salts and essential oils one winter’s night, the thought came to her that everyone should feel that relaxed in their bath. In that moment, the BathCalm seed had been planted.
Caroline’s vision was to create a range of products using only natural ingredients, and packaged in only biodegradable and recyclable materials. No plastic.
Caroline wanted something more though… beautiful music to match each blend. Better still, a guided meditation that harmonised with the music and blends. The product needed to be easy to use, so that people who had never tried meditation before were gently guided through the process. It would be a fusion of scent, soak and sound, creating the ultimate bath relaxation experience.
Calling on the talents of her three dearest friends to help breathe life into her vision, Caroline asked Sondrine, a gifted composer, to write the music, and Adam and Julia, two talented yoga instructors, to write and voice the guided meditations. Caroline meanwhile, set about experimenting with a multitude of pure essential oils to create the perfect fragrance for each blend.
Three beautiful products are now available as the result of Caroline’s dream and her team’s creativity. BathCalm’s Tranquility, Performance and Euphoria blends are each unique in their character and function, all with the purpose of helping you to take a breath… and relax.
Sondrine Terez is a French-born Australian singer, musician and composer based in Brisbane, Queensland.
Combining electronic sounds and beats with piano and orchestral strings, Sondrine’s songs and instrumentals deliver intensely emotional melodies and chord progressions.
The debut album by Sondrine, The Outsider, is available for download on her website or via Bandcamp or CD Baby.
Sondrine’s second album, ‘Future Sculptor’ and Other Pieces, is now also available. Her sophomore release comprises an instrumental album featuring the complete ‘Music for a Film’ suite (two pieces of which were included on The Outsider) as well as a collection of piano improvisations recorded over a number of years.
Julia has had many occupations over the years, but being a mother to her two divine children has been by far and away the most rewarding job she has applied herself to and genuinely feels blessed to be a woman and a mother.
Julia has always been nourished by the simple pleasures that life brings; family, friends, nature, good food, wine, long walks, cooking, warm baths and great music. Julia enjoys tending the space she inhabits, wherever that may be.
Julia is thankful to afford her simple, beautiful life, with cultivating gratitude, love and kindness uppermost in her mind.
Julia has practiced yoga and meditation for over 30 years becoming a qualified yoga teacher in 2016 and we are incredibly fortunate to have her on our creative team. We challenge you not to feel relaxed listening to her while you soak in your bath!
Adam has been walking a spiritual path for 30 years. Meeting his spiritual teacher in 1991, Adam began a regular practice of meditation and chanting, both of which have infused his life with grace and inspiration.
A man of many talents, Adam is also a trained actor and singer. He performs regularly in musicals and teaches singing and acting. Adam also recently completed his yoga teacher training course and holds yoga classes several times a week.
Adam’s wish for you is that you gain relaxation and wisdom from his BathCalm guided meditations.
