That big, plastic bottle of sudsing bubbles is what your kids squeal for when it’s time for a bath. You, on the other hand, should reach for something on the higher shelf. Escaping to the tub is, after all, a luxury that doesn’t come often. So why not make the most of those stolen moments with an aromatic, skin-soothing soak handmade with exquisite natural ingredients? Let the perfect combination of relaxing essential oils, rejuvenating salts and softening baking soda transport you to your quiet place (at least until some starts knocking because they want a snack!).
