What is it about the idea of a long soak in a warm tub that is so appealing to us? According to the experts, a warm bath is a great way to revitalize and rejuvenate. The right at-home spa products including bath bombs, bath oils, bath salts, candles and and wraps can make all the difference.
Bath salts and bombs add comfort to a good long soak that has the power to wash away the stress of the day. Supporting your head and neck while you lounge in the tub will not only increase comfort but will also, provide the support to your head and neck that you need to do away with those aches and pains. Plus we love using warm neck wraps and soothing eye pillows for added relaxation.
Baths in warm water and added minerals have been a form of therapy for thousands of years. Balneotherapy (bath taking) can help to settle the body, release toxins, and provide a zero-gravity environment to help heal your body.

Comfort in the tub is key to promoting those feel-good vibes. Spa products can give you luxurious self-pampering feelings that set you up for deep relaxation. Some experts believe that humans are drawn to a nice warm bath to relieve stress because it triggers memories of comfort in the womb and takes us mentally to a place that is safe.
