“The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it”
– Sydney J Harris
Now I’m normally not a bathtub kinda gal, but when the opportunity presents itself a warm, soothing soak can be absolute bliss! Not to mention completely NECESSARY at times… too much stress & fatigue is not a good look on anybody! Taking the time to unwind after a long day is absolutely essential, whether that be 30 minutes of reading or a rejuvenating bath, even the smallest of “life-diversions” really can make all the difference in the world! So today myself, Essential Oils Educator Heather Santo, & Holistic Nutritionist Connie Linton are sharing a few spa-worthy, bathtub products & recipes!
1. Beach Baby, Bath & Body – Brit Linton
I recently stumbled upon Beach Baby, Bath & Body at a Farmer’s Market in Haliburton… I wanted to splurge & literally buy ALL of their items! From perfume to artisan soaps to beard oil, Beach Baby seems to cover all of the bathroom basics & so much more! But what really caught my eye was their “Tub Tea”, which is offered in several different varieties such as:
- Bedtime Bliss
- Cold Relief
- Flower Power
- Herban Detox
- Muscle Ease
- Skin Soother
Essentially, the “Tub Tea” comes in a tea bag which you place under running water & then soak in the warm bath as you relax & rejuvenate! I purchased the Bedtime Bliss & Skin Soother! Both are equally amazing!
ALSO… side-note, we need to talk about their lip balm line. They offer nearly every single flavour that you could ever possibly imagine! Pumpkin Spice, Candy Cane, Black Forrest Cake?! You name it, they most likely have it!

2. Essential Oils – Heather Santo
I’ve enlisted the help of Heather several times before on HHH & I absolutely LOVE all of the amazing information that she provides! Here’s her take on using essential oils to achieve the most perfect bath:
“Pick an oil that smells amazing and will relax you or lift you up, depending on what you need. Lavender, Cedarwood, Juniper, Frankincense, Myrrh and Palmarosa oils are great for in the bath. Do not select oils that are considered “warming” such as peppermint, spearmint, wintergreen, oregano, and thyme. Be cautious of using blends that include these as well.”
Heather also mentions that prior to adding essential oils to your bath, you must use a carrier. She recommends 3 popular carriers including: milk, bath salts, or carrier oils. For more information on using essential oils in baths, along with recipes, read Heather’s full article here.
3. P. Jentschura: Alkabath, Bath Salts – Connie Linton
Connie has been using this product for a few years now & loves how these bath salts “leave your skin so silky”. This particular product is based on 10,000 year-old alkaline beauty & body care traditions used by ancient Egyptians, Greeks, & the Romans! Sounds fancy right?! Not only is Alkabath perfect for warm, soothing baths, but it’s also amazing to use for foot soaks! Connie also recommends air drying instead of using a towel as to not wipe off the minerals.
