Relax Already: Take a Bath

It's the end of a very long day. You've cooked, you've cleaned and you've tucked the kids in bed. There is nothing on tv, you're sick of your book (and your husband for that matter) and all you want to do is unwind. Here's a thought: Take a bath.

Almost everyone has a tub but not everyone uses it for bathing (ironic, really). One way to calm down after a hard day is to draw yourself a bath.

Not into soaking in plain, old bath water, then

People pay good money to soak in therapeutic spa tubs, but you can create your own therapeutic bath at home. There are so many fun bubbles, oils, milks and soaks to make your bathing experience even more enjoyable. Dr. Hauschka, the holistic skin care brand, has a line of aromatherapy bath oils for any mood. If you're looking to de-stress, try the lavender or the spruce oils (or combine them both for extra aroma fun) for the soothing and calming properties in the herbs. The trial size kit is only $15.95 if you're not yet sure that bathing is your thing. Buy them here.

Fit's Tip: Put some fresh towels beside the tub before you start the bath... nothing kills the mood of a de-stressing bath like running naked across the cold bathroom floor to fetch a towel.
