Everyone needs a little escape after a long day of hard work, or a long day of doing absolutely nothing. Some people like to have a glass of wine, some smoke cigarettes, some watch endless amounts of tv, and some take baths! I don’t know about you, but taking a bath has always been my favorite form of self-care. After many years and thousands of baths, nothing excites me more than a warm bath at the end of the day. But that’s not it…. We’re missing what makes the experience most incredible, the bath tub accessories!! From bath bombs, to pillows, to bath salts, to bath tub wine glass holders, there is an endless list of products that I feel make my experience significantly better. Aaaand yes of course I’m going to share them with you because making your experience great is my priority! As always, if there is something I did not touch on or something you want to know more about, my email is in the about page and I am happy to have a conversation with you! 🙂 You can also chat us directly if that’s easier for you.
If you want easy access to a glass of wine/water/tea, a book, a laptop, a tv, a movie, etc., then you need a bathtub caddy. Bathtub caddy’s are especially great because you can do all the things you normally would while you lay relaxed in warm water. Additionally, you don’t have to worry about things falling into the water.

You need to invest in bath salts if you want to make your bath time experience better and here’s why. Not only do bath salts moisturize your skin and sooth muscle pain but the concentration of the bath salts can increase the circulation throughout your body, reducing your stress! Yes, you heard that right, salt can reduce your stress. Therefore, the bath salts go beyond making just your bath time experience better. They positively affect you outside the bath by keeping your muscles soothed, your skin moisturized, and your circulation flowing.

I wasn’t always a fan of bath bombs because I was skeptical about the ingredients inside of them. However, after doing plenty of research, I’ve learned that bath bombs are not so bad after all. Not only do they soften your skin through adding emollients to the baths water, but the ingredients are also made to cleanse your skin. Bath bombs are also known for have healing properties as almost all of them contain both citric acid and sodium bicarbonate. And of course, it makes your bath way more visually appealing. When buying a bath bomb, make sure you’re getting one that has all natural ingredients, especially if you’re someone who has sensitive skin. If not, the chemicals in a non-natural bath bomb will cause skin irritation. Additionally, some bath bombs are scented and will linger on your skin after using it, so be mindful of whether you want that or not!

I’ve always been an impulsive buyer, but I promise you a bath pillow is not an impulsive buy. Most bath tubs are very uncomfortable to sit in for a while. Eventually you find yourself shifting positions to even out your back pain and it gets very annoying. Thankfully, there is a solution, a lot of them, actually. There is a pillow shape for every kind of bath, whether you want just a pillow for your head, a pillow for your head and back, a pillow for just your back, etc. I highly recommend getting a bath pillow to enhance your experience because not only will you feel more relaxed, but there are also health benefits to bath pillows such as reduced levels of blood pressure/stress.

And what better way to transition from warm water to soft comfortable fabric than to putting on a robe? Not only will bath robes keep you warm and comfortable, but they’ll keep you clothed without you having to leave your bathroom!!! I remember the days when I would run out of my bath tub absolutely freezing to get warm clothes out of my drawers, little did I know that I never had to go through that. But anyways, as you probably know, bath robes come in many fabrics and styles so I would recommend doing some research before picking one. I personally love the waffle robes because they make me feel like I’m at a hotel, but I must admit, they are not the warmest.
