Make cold winter nights all the more bearable with our edit of the most blissful bath products around
They say a cup of tea can solve any problem and the same can be said for a long hot bath. Granted, they’re not as practical, but they’re infinitely more effective in our experience. With the winter weather, our love of baths has been rekindled - it's the hug in the tub we can't get enough of.
Well versed in the ritual, here’s our pick of the best bath oils, soaks and salts to suit any budget.
The bubbly one
Neal's Yard Remedies Organic Aromatic Foaming Bath, £15 for 200ml
Offering silky suds and a sleep-inducing cocktail of ingredients certain to help anyone nod off, this bath time elixir serves as the ideal treat before bedtime. Containing skin conditioning botanical oils to leave limbs soft and smooth, it’s a favourite in the GTG office.
The budget one
Radox Muscle Bath Soak, £1 for 500ml
Proving plenty of bang for your buck and bath, this mega-sized soak from high street favourites, Radox has stood the test of time - and for good reason. Perfect post-workout or pre-bed, clary sage and sea minerals help to melt tension away (without breaking the bank).
The invigorating one
Elemental Herbology Wood Rejuvenation Bath and Body Oil, £25.20 for 145ml
Containing rosemary to energise, ho leaf to relieve tight muscles and nutmeg to improve circulation, this versatile pick covers a range of bathing bases. Pop on skin pre-shower for a more intense hydrating treat, into your bath for a skin soothing soak and/or apply onto dry skin for added moisture. Plus, it smells glorious too.
The cold-fighting one
Kneipp Eucalyptus Cold & Flu Mineral Bath Salt, £8.95 for 500g
For an extra helping hand for your health as we step into cold season, make sure to have these salts on standby in your medicine cabinet. Containing eucalyptus and mint essential oils to clear blocked noses and decongest sinuses, it helps give your bath a illness-fighting upgrade.
The organic one
Voya Moonlight Moments Relaxing Bath & Shower Oil, £35 for 50ml
Soil Association certified, this soothing bath oil soothes skin and senses thanks to its calming fragrance and blend of lavender, rose geranium and Irish seaweed. Simply pour a couple of capfuls into your bath or massage into skin beforehand to de-stress body and mind.
The slightly different one...
Salt and Pamper Bath Salts, £12.99
You know how we said earlier that a bath is a like a cup of tea? Well, these take that comparison one step further. Designed to infuse your tub with a dose of essential oils, simply add your salts and the included fragrance bag (that also contains organic rolled oats), and let them brew before you sit back and relax. You can also buy them on subscription too to ensure your supplies never run dry.
