Ocean enthusiast and Sydneysider, Emma Jarman, is the Communications Director of COMMAS, a brand that represents a meaningful pause, and breathes sustainability.
Nurtured by the ocean, Emma incorporates sea into her daily bathing ritual. For her it represents a sense of comfort and familiarity whilst also serving as a space of creativity. In this instalment of BAINA Bathe, Emma unveils the intimate rituals that foster a stronger connection to self.
"Ocean bathing for me is a source of inspiration and energy. It is also the prefect reset when life throws a curve ball."
"I grew up by the ocean, so it always feels like home."
- Emma Jarman
"Bathing is a beautiful act of self care. In the realm of attraction, there's nothing more delicious than a freshly bathed salty or soapy lover."
"I bathe in the ocean in the morning to be refreshed and energised. An evening bath is a time to unwind. I'm doing a lot more evening baths during this pregnancy; it’s a way of disconnecting from the world outside."
"Though I don't follow specific breathing exercises, I love the way the cold ocean in winter momentarily takes your breath away."
- Emma Jarman
"I love the feeling of drinking a warm tea in a hot bath of an evening. And if I am diving in the ocean in winter, hot coffee is the reward for braving the elements."
"I love a playlist that brings new morning energy to bathe to. I put together a playlist of Balearic sounds that I blast in the morning after an ocean swim while making breakfast and dancing around the kitchen."
