Whether you’ve had a long day or are finally getting around to your resolution to work out more and are now dealing with sore muscles, a bath is a proven way to relax both your body and mind. While it might seem like a lot of effort to draw a bath, the benefits of tub time are worth it. From moisturizing the skin to helping you sleep better, it’s no wonder this ritual was a favorite of historical figures ranging from Cleopatra to Winston Churchill.

It’s not a secret that we’re all about self care here at The AEDITION, and a bath can be just what the doctor ordered at the end of a long week or hectic weekend. Warm water helps regulate blood flow, and the steam can aid in clearing up congestion for those battling the seasonal flu. Raising your body temperature can also help burn calories and taking a little time for yourself will do wonders for your mental health. While you can DIY an at-home spa experience with a bit of coconut oil, essential oils, and flower petals, there are an array of tonics and tinctures on the market to turn your home into a wonderland of relaxation. In honor of National Bubble Day on January 8, here are 10 products that will take your bathtime to the next level.
