Bubble bath bliss: You made it through the holidays; now, relax
We know how it is around the holiday season. You rushed from store to store, checked your list—checked it twice. You baked. You wrapped. You hosted. You toasted. You opened presents. You laughed. Maybe you cried. And now that the big day is behind you? Well, you’re exhausted.
Now, it’s time to slow down and take a deep, relaxing soak.
We’ve gathered a few of the sweetest smelling salts and scrubs to help you or your loved one soak away the tension that we all know comes with the season.
Whether you do it for yourself, or as a thank you gift, these bath products are sure to be treasured by any stressed-out mother (or even mother-in-law—be generous) out there. We’re loving the salts, which serve two purposes: They moisturize, and they slough off all that old skin.
This time of year, buy a little something for yourself and let those worries float away:
