There are few things better than a long, hot soak after a hard day. Taking a bath is one of my favorite ways to indulge myself. It’s no secret to those who know me that I love bath stuff. All kinds–bubbles, salts, fizzies, oils, soft soaps, creams, bars, you name it I’ll want to try it.

Rather than looking for a specific product for my bath, I go for a scent or mood. If I’m looking to relax I reach for something with neroli oil, if I want to feel upbeat I look for a citrus or fruit. Sometimes I want to feel feminine and I’ll reach for a floral scent like rose or jasmine. Then there are the times when I just want some comfort–at those times I look for vanilla based scents.

Everyone has their own preferences for bathing. Personally, I prefer to run the water as hot as I can stand it then let some out and refill with hot water as long as I want to soak. A long, hot soak does wonders for my body and my spirit.
