If you know me well, you know that I LOVE to take baths! They are such a simple pleasure and make me feel so relaxed! I decided to throw together a list of my favorite things that make taking a bath one of my favorite parts of the day!
Bubbles or Salts
This is mainly personal preference! I usually like salts better because I feel like bubbles dry out my skin. But occasionally I will use bubbles if I’m feeling extra fancy. My favorite bath salts are the Dr. Teals because they are pretty inexpensive and they last a while! I’ve tried almost all of them and my favorite are the avocado oil, the lavender, and the ginger clay detox! I usually keep a few bags on hand and throw in whatever I’m in the mood for. For bubbles, I love the philosophy line- they all smell so good! Amazing grace is my personal favorite. Dr. Teals also makes bubble bath that I have heard good things about.
Candles are a vital part to a relaxing bath in my opinion! My love of candles is not new (see some of my faves here) and I practically always have one burning. Some of my favorites at the moment are the Diptyque Baies, Volcano, (Always) and the Spring’s Eden collection from anthro.
A Good Book or Magazine
I usually try to avoid screens in the bathtub, so books are the way to go! They make it so much more relaxing than just aimlessly scrolling through instagram. I am currently reading Sweetbitter. I also love reading magazines, my favorites are Domino + Porter!
During a bath is the perfect time to do a face mask! I love anything by origins! I just bought this Korres set that I am excited to try and I just got this REN mask in my birch box that I love! It is super soothing!
I try not to do this every night, but if I’ve had a super rough day or it’s the weekend I’ll have a nice glass or rosé or cabernet in my bath and it is the BEST! Trust me friends, you cannot go wrong. My roomies got me this cute wine glass from Anthropologie for my birthday and it is just my favorite!
