All TheBest Bath Products

The bath is a place of unparalleled relaxation that has so many benefits aside from just getting clean. Unlike the beating of cleansing water on your back, there’s a stillness about lying in a tub filled with hot water that is a great antidote to a long day/stress/anxiety. I like to think of it as a pause, a way to reset, and think nothing of jumping in one during the afternoon at the weekend to escape my to-do lists.

There are instant physical benefits to bathing too: the heat relaxes muscles, and the dip in your body temperature when you emerge ushers in sleep, hence all the advice to have a hot bath if you’re struggling to fall asleep. There’s also the added bonus that bringing tech into the bath isn’t a great idea, so you can’t fail to take a few minutes to kick back and relax offline, preferably (in my case) cradling a book over the steaming water.

For sybarites among you, it’s also worth noting that there’s no better opportunity to light a beautiful candle and add something that smells delicious to the mix. For this, the options are many. Having tested about a gazillion, here’s what I’d suggest you pour into your bath for the ultimate pamper…
