Taking the time for a bath is one of life’s greatest joys. When your day-to-day schedule is hectic and moving at a non-stop pace, there’s nothing like sinking into a tub full of warm water to help make your troubles feel very far away. For most, it’s the closest you can get to your own little oasis, without having to book a trip or schedule a visit to a local bathhouse. But what if your current bath regimen leaves a little to be desired, or isn’t quite as luxurious as you deserve? A few key bath products can upgrade your routine to at-home spa status.
One often-overlooked aspect of a quality bath session is setting the mood — that means music, candles, a tasty beverage within arm’s reach. Then there are the bath products themselves, like salts (Epsom or CBD are both popular options), oils, and of course the ubiquitous bubble bath. And, naturally, a fluffy towel and equally comfy robe are absolute necessities to make your bath time look and feel like an opulent escape.
Not sure about where to start upgrading your bath routine? These ten bath products are sure to leave you feeling relaxed and pampered in no time.
