When it comes to relaxing, nothing feels quite as heavenly as a long, bubble-filled soak in the tub after a long day. We’re talking wine in hand, cooling eye mask on, calming tunes floating overhead, chocolate nibbles within reach…you get the drift. So in honor of National Relaxation Day (a rather genius holiday, if we do say so ourselves), we’ve put together your guide to a better bubble bath for some serious R&R, from top notch suds and therapeutic soaking salts to in-bath essentials and plush, post-bath towels and robes. Sit back, relax, and get ready to soak all of your worries away – because you deserve it girl, every day.
