6 Essentials for the Perfect Bath

Taking a bath is the perfect time and place for you to completely unwind and immerse yourself in a soothing and restorative experience. We believe self-care is of the utmost importance, so we put together a list of our six essentials to make your bath time everything you need to wind down and more.

 

 

1. Bath Oil or Bubbles

Let's begin with soothing the senses - specifically the sense of smell! Aromatherapy isn't amazing just because of the pleasant aromas, but it's also been linked to reducing body pains, anxiety, headaches and a number of other health issues. Choosing a bath oil or bubble bath with one of your favorite soothing scents is the perfect way to begin your bath. One of our favorite clean-at-Sephora bath oil is the REN Clean Skincare Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil. This soothing bath oil is made with calming Moroccan rose otto oil to pamper the skin while filling your bathroom with the floral and relaxing scent of fresh roses. 

 

 

 

2. Candles

Now let's really set the mood. Dim the lights and bring out your favorite candles for a spa-like feel in your own bathroom. Our handcrafted ceramic candle holder is the perfect way to set the mood for a relaxing, quality bath experience so you can burn away the bad vibes and bring the light back into your day. 

 

 

 

 

3. Bathtub Caddy 

 

 

Now this one might seem a little bougie, but hear us out. If you're really looking to settle into this bath, we highly suggest investing in a bathtub caddy. It basically holds everything you hold dear (for a bath at least). This 100% Bamboo Wood bathtub caddy from DOZYANT is equipped to hold a stemmed glass, phone, book, iPad and/or Kindle. The bathtub caddy is an easy and inexpensive way to make your bath feel classy and luxurious all at the same time. 

 

 

 

4. Your Preferred Form of Entertainment: Book, Show, Music

 

 

Most of us probably don't sit in complete silence in the bathtub (but if you do, more power to you). Whether it's your favorite book at the moment, your current Netflix binge, or your pre-made bath playlist, now is the time to bring it out. This is when that bath tray comes in handy. To get you started, here are a few of our favorite summer reads to indulge in during bath time!  

 

Park Avenue Summer by Renée Rosen

 

 

Becoming by Michelle Obama

 

 

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

 

 

 

The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters by Balli Kaur Jaswal 

 

 

 

 

5. Your Drink of Choice 

 

 

If you're hittin' the tub for a lengthy period of time, make sure to bring your drink of choice, whether it's an ice cold water, tea or wine (we recommend the latter) and keep it on your trusty bath tray! The perfect destressing tea that we swear by is the Naturopathica Stress Tea. Blended with lavender, chamomile, oatstraw, holy basil and schisandra, this naturally decaffeinated tea is ideal for winding down after a long day. If you're feeling little you need to treat yourself, we highly suggest the Wölffer Estate Summer in a Bottle. It's light, yet fruity and refreshing! Now pour yourself a glass of your drink of choice. It's time to chill. 

 

 

 

 

6. Cozy Bathrobe

 

 

For the final bath essential, make sure you have a fluffy bathrobe to slip into post-bath. There's nothing like staying in a hotel and slipping into a comfy robe and getting cozy in bed after a bath. Guess what - you don't need a hotel to do this! Be your own fancy hotel and get a comfy robe. Check out this classic & plush Terry Robe for the perfect way to end your bath time experience.
