8 Bath Products for the Most Relaxing Tub Ever
If you asked us a couple of months ago, we wouldn’t have been able to tell you the last time we took a bubble bath. Now, they’re a bi-weekly occurrence. Desperate times call for extra self-care, right? And now that baths are a staple in our routine, we’ve discovered some products and tricks that make them even more soothing. Here, eight bath products for the most relaxing tub ever.
1. Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil
Drop a capful of this oil into the water, or massage it directly onto your skin for an instant calming effect. The award-winning formula contains chamomile, vetiver and sandalwood to relax and comfort you. The brand suggests using it before bed to calm racing thoughts and soothe your nervous system.
2. Barr-Co. Bubble Elixir
Still pouring shampoo into the tub for “bubbles” that last about two minutes? Yeah, it’s time for an upgrade. Sprinkle a few teaspoons of this botanical formula into your bath for a sudsy, skin-softening soak. The clean scent, which is a mix of milk, vanilla, oatmeal and vetiver, will make you feel like you’ve been transported to a luxurious hotel bathroom—a welcome reprieve from your current sitch. Plus, it’ll look super chic sitting on the side of your tub.
3. Lord Jones High CBD Formula Bath Salts
“Melt away tension with this blend of pink Himalayan salt, arnica, Epsom salts, calendula petals and essential oils,” the product description reads. Don’t mind if we do. Sprinkle a scoop of these CBD infused bath salts under running water and you’ll immediately start to unwind. Selma Blair swears by them.
4. Haven Teak Bathtub Caddy
This expandable caddy will take your bath time experience to a whole new level. Rest it over your tub so you can take advantage of its wine glass holder and adjustable book (or iPad) rest. Tell the fam not to worry if they don’t see don’t see you for a few hours…
5. Ouai Chill Pills Bath Bombs (Pack of 6)
Each Chill Pill is made with moisturizing oils to get your skin silky smooth while you soak—without leaving a mess behind afterwards. As the name implies, they have a calming scent of jasmine and rose to help you wind down after a long day. “These babies are a treat. [They] smell wonderful and soften my skin,” says one buyer. No wonder they sell out on the reg.
6. Diptyque Figuier Candle
Diptyque is Meghan Markle’s favorite candle brand for a reason. Each scent is sophisticated and not headache-inducing like ones we’ve used in the past. This particular one is described as warm and elegant—perfect for an evening of pampering. Leave it in your bathroom 24/7 for a chic touch.
7. Luxury Spa Bath Pillow
Let’s be honest, sometimes leaning back on the edge of the tub hurts. So while it looks a little ridiculous, a bath pillow like this can really help. Just suction cup it to the side of your tub and the cushy, supportive surface will totally save your neck and back. Now, you can actually make it through more than 15 minutes in there.
8. Smile Makers the Millionaire
This vibrator was voted as one of the best in our super anonymous poll, so you know it has to be good. The Millionaire is discrete and 100 percent waterproof so you’re free to bring it in the tub, you know, if that’s the kind of relaxation you’re looking for.
