While this holiday might have been created just to make us use and purchase more bath products, I will *happily* use any excuse to take some time to de-stress and unwind with a luxuries bath. Actually, I am quite a bath fanatic.
Often I use the excuse that I am just "too tired" in the evenings to motivate to get in the tub. However, I find that using luxurious or decadent bath products literally lures me to the tub! I am always glad that I did. It is so relaxing and it really takes away any body ache. Plus, I find that I always sleep really well after I have had a nice bath.
If you haven't tried LUSH, they have a ton of bath products to choose from. It is so fun to shop at a LUSH store! They set out all of their handmade bath products and bath bombs so that you can test them out in the store. Everything always smells amazing!
Did you know that LUSH actually originally created the bath bomb? In fact, in 2011, LUSH used 985 pounds of baking soda to make over 4.1 million Bath bombs. So this Tuesday, draw some water and hop on in!
Need some inspiration? Check out these Bath Bombs, Bath Melts, and Bubble Bars from LUSH:
Bath Bombs are made primarily of baking soda and citric acid (fermented citrus sugars) and beautiful essential oils. To use, toss one into a full hot bath and watch as it releases essential oils, softens the water and turns your bath into beautiful colors.
- Blackberry Bath Bomb ($6.35)
This delicious, legendary bath bomb has a delightfully fruity blend of blackcurrant and bergamot essential oils to lift spirits, inspire confidence and relieve depression. It is also seasoned with a smattering of frankincense, traditionally used to relieve nervous tension and stress. Drop this uplifting berry burst of purple goodness into the bath to blow away sad thoughts and launch you into a bright new day full of unlimited potential. (Vegan)
- Sex Bomb Bath Bomb ($6.65) Sex Bomb is a volatile mix of the most potent aphrodisiacs known to man, used not only for their seismic effects on the emotions, but also for their excellent skin-softening and regenerative properties. Jasmine, a symbol of feminine beauty and sweetness, has long been used in love potions to stimulate the senses. Euphoric clary sage is added for its aphrodisiac qualities, and deliciously seductive ylang ylang helps soften and smooth the skin – the combination will make you feel like a love goddess.
These luxury bath melts were created to make skin feel like it was dipped in lotion by combining cocoa butter and essential oils. Unlike ordinary bath oils, these melts emulsify into the entire bath and coat your body like a milk bath. To use, drop one into a hot running bath.
- Dreamtime Bath Melt ($6.25): Dreamtime is a creamy luxury bath melt designed to be used before bedtime to soften skin and calm your troubled head so you can go straight to bed and sleep soundly. It contains cocoa butter and almond oil, which melt in the bath water and gently soften skin, while the scented blend of chamomile, sandalwood, jasmine, lavender and ginger essential oils relax your mind and help your worries fade away. Drifting off into a peaceful sleep has never been easier than after a warm bath with a Dreamtime bath melt. Sweet dreams! (Vegan)
LUSH Bubble Bars use cream of tartar and Cocamide (coconut derived) to make thicker, smaller bubbles to last through the entire bath and to soften your skin. These truly create that “Hollywood-style” bubble bath that you always see in the movies!
- The Comforter Bubble Bar ($10.95): Like your favorite cozy blanket, The Comforter Bubble Bar envelops you with comforting bubbles – it’s perfect for use whenever you’ve had a bad day or just need a hug. Cypress and bergamot oils soothe skin while cassis adds a mysterious and seductive aroma. This velvety berry and cream bath parfait softens all skins with lavish bubbles, and even its shape looks like a rolled up blanket! Polish off your bathing bliss with a scrub of You Snap the Whip Body Butter – your skin and senses will thank you. (Vegan)
