Several years ago when I was apartment hunting, I had a short list of requirements—beggars can’t be choosers after all—and I was on a strict budget. But right near the top of that list (right after no basements) was a bathtub. It might seem like a little thing, but bath-lovers like myself know that there are few things more relaxing that a perfectly drawn bath. Here are a few reasons—and some stellar bath quotes—that will make you want to take an hour or two for yourself in the bath.
“I love to have a bath with beautiful, relaxing music on and have no rush to do anything. It’s a wonderful indulgence, and it helps me to calm down and stop my mind running overtime.”
Indulge is the key world that Kylie Minogue uses here. Taking a bath even has it’s roots in history as the ultimate indulgence. (Enough hot water to soak in? Getting clean regularly? Only for the elite and wealthy, duh.) Nowadays, if you’re able to set aside half an hour of time and you have a tub, you can partake in this luxurious treat. You don’t even have to invest in luxury oils. Just pick up a bath bomb—we love this LUSH Titsy Totsy Rose Bath Bomb ($6.75)—for a scented and sensual pick-me-up.
