Bath, business and more at Batherapy
By Marnie Adams, Contributor @ Kids In Perth 10 Apr 2022
Nestled among the chic retail shops along Eighth Avenue in Maylands is Batherapy.
Like its neighbours, it sells artisan and handmade products, in the case of Batherapy… beautiful candles, bath soaps and fragrances. Besides stocking beautiful products, Batherapy has a powerful, underlying mission driven by its owner, Tracey Jewel.
Hmmm. She looks familiar, wasn’t she on… Yes, Tracey used to be on Married At First Sight (2018).
Since being on TV, Tracey has gone through many adversities and, thankfully, come through the other end towards motherhood joy and purpose in advocating and empowering women towards better self care, mental wellbeing and entrepreneurialism.
Born from her childhood passion, Tracey created Batherapy to be an exciting Studio where anybody is welcome to not only drop to buy nice things, but also, try their hand at making their own! Or network…
Describe Batherapy in 3 words.
Creating, inspiring, relaxing
What inspired Batherapy? Why bath soaps and candles?
I’ve always loved candles, soap and anything for 5 minutes of peace and a bath!
Since becoming a mum, I found bath time was just for the kids so I wanted to consciously reclaim bath time for myself!
Why are you so passionate about entrepreneurialism and business? How did this interest start?
Since I was a kid, I’ve always loved candles, baths and all things fragrance.
As a 21 year old I used to have a stand at the Freo markets selling room sprays!
It’s something I always come back to..
As for business and entrepreneurialism, I’ve have had some negative experiences in the corporate environment relating to sexual harrasment. It’s made me passionate about creating a community where women are empowering and supporting each other to create opportunities for other women.

Q&A | Get to know Tracey
What does Batherapy represent as a brand?
For anyone experiencing isolation, loneliness or mental health issues, we created a safe space where they can come and just be, feel welcome to attend classes on their own to make some fun products and meet new people.
Creating with your hands, especially sensory experiences such as scents can be so therapeutic, while also, incorporating mindfulness and being present too!
What is your daily self-care ritual or routine?
With a 1 year old it can be tough but I have my non negotiables! I always make time for 15 min of mindfulness or meditation a day and journalling before I go to bed. It helps me let go of the day - the good the bad and the grateful for a good nights sleep
Which is more important, the bath at the start or end of the day? Why?
It depends on the type of person you are and both can be amazing!
A morning bath can allow for creativity time to set your day up with intention and of course at night can help you wind down for bed!
Why is it important for women to incorporate Bath Care into their routine? How can they do it?
It’s time we reclaim the bath from our kids! It’s sometimes the only space in the house where we can get some uninterrupted me time and incorporates so many self care elements such as reading a book, smelling beautiful aromas, relaxing in dim lighting and electronic free!
What's your favourite product and why?
I’m loving using bath oils in the bath - I have super dry skin washing my hands all day long like so many and find the oil hydrates my skin long after a bath! My fave that we create is clear mind bath oil by batherapy
Do customers still ask about your MAFS experiences? How has this helped and hindered getting this business off the ground?
They do ask! And we have a good laugh about it and I share a few behind the scenes gossip and deets
I think the way I came across on TV is quite similar to who I am as a person and this is reflected at batherapy in the space created
4 years later after mafs shows that life moves on though so I don’t think it should come as much of a surprise people find me married for real with a baby and so forth
Describe a typical day for you as an entrepreneur?
Like most mums it is a juggling act and no day is the same. Flexibility is key which means I can go some days until 2pm
Without checking my phone or laptop and spending with my family and other days I’m working til 10pm.
I always make sure every day I have quality family time and my non negotiable self care time
Using Self-Care and Bathing Products as a vehicle, I’ve noticed the community you're building, what's your vision and purpose for Batherapy fans? How would you like to influence these people?
Pampering doesn’t have to be expensive or the once in a while experience to a day spa.. we deserve to pamper ourselves every day and it is easier to do once you create a space you want to be in!
Simple items such as a bath caddy, candles and a good bath soak or book or for those without baths a beautiful shower steamer can really create a positive impact to the day
Learning to Create these products as handmade gifts for a loved one or yourself is such a fun experience while connecting over a wine or high tea, having a laugh is memorable for many reasons!
