Trying to get away from the heat? Get in the bath!

Hear us out: baths can be a fun and refreshing part of your summer. And we’ve got a few tips and tricks to turn your bathtub into a cool, soothing oasis that’ll turn hot summer nights into cool ones.

It might seem unusual, but jumping into a cool bath isn’t anything new. In fact, it’s known as a quick and easy way to bring down your core temperature, reduce stress, help wake you up, and even keep your skin and hair looking their best.

The coolest bath bombs
Adding a bath bomb to your cold bath kicks the experience up. Our bath bombs are packed with sodium bicarbonate (baking soda - the stuff that makes ‘em fizz) as well as refreshing and soothing oils that’ll ensure your bath bomb fizzes easily in colder water. We’d suggest avoiding bath bombs that are packed with butters that need warmer water to melt completely.

If you want to keep your cool both in and out of the bath, ingredients like the peppermint oil, are ideal. Peppermint’s tingling effects will help keep your skin feeling cool while you soak up all the bath bomb’s goodness, and it’ll also stay with you after you’ve emerged from your cooling oasis.

Citrusy ingredients like lime, lemongrass or lemon can also give your bath and skin a refreshing boost. Dive deep into the depths of your cool bath and Orange Coconut's tropical perfume of orange infused with coconut, lemongrass and coriander oils. Or grab Sleep, which is packed with lemon and lavender oils, as well as fine epsom salts for a relaxing experience, while Heal’s soothing lemongrass, lavender and coconut oil blend will rejuvenate your body and mind, while keeping skin soft and hydrated.

After sun solutions
When you’ve spent too much time in the sun, soothing ingredients are in order. The lavender oil found in the Belle of the Bath will not only offer comforting relief, but lavender is also known for its relaxation abilities, so you can lie back, cool down and leave the tub feeling ready for a good night’s sleep. Bubbly Belle bath bombs can also ease sunburned skin. 

No tub? We got you.
Hop in the shower with your bath bomb broken in half or pieces and lie them on your shower floor! Pop your favorite one in the fridge or freezer and its icy cold touch will help invigorate skin on hot summer days and nights. 

The days are still long and the sunshine is calling.
