Drawing a lavish bath after an extremely long day means the most to a lot of us! Just like magic, it takes the edge off and suddenly makes everything okay again. I can smell those subtle hints of lavender and neroli just thinking about it…Whether your preference is to light a few candles or to simply just be accompanied by a glass of wine, bath time is a personal and intimate experience with ones self, a moment to just…be.
What If we told you there are a few easy ingredients you could pop into your bath to make the experience even more indulgent! Not only will these feel-good ingredients fill the room up with calming natural scents, they will also help sooth body pains, skin irritations, and distract you from the woes of the day, with incredible aromas.
