Bathtime, Bitches

“I have a bath every single day of my life. And if I can have two or three—amazing. Nothing terrible is going to happen in the bath, so I always find time for that.” Emma Watson

Unless you’re the blonde lady in the Bride of Chucky, Emma’s right. Nothing terrible is gonna happen. Rub a dub dub, bitch! Get in there!

 
 

Baths are a great place to relax and connect with your peace. Lol. When stepparenting gets to be a bit… much… get in the bath. Instead of engaging with / worrying about / fighting about the stepfamily problem du jour, LETITGOOOO and take a beautiful bath! ⁣

I follow #ritualbath on Instagram for ideas on making a bath fit for a queen, aka moi. There are a lot of flowers, but also fruit, candles, essential oils, books, and WIIIIIIINE. I say throw it all in there.

It can be a pretty spiritual experience with the right music, lighting, and bad-vibes-busting sage in a steamy bathroom. It’s a great opportunity to relax and have some alone time. Don’t forget to lock the door so an evil doll can’t break in and KILL YOU.

Here are a few things I like to mix and match in and around the bath:

  • Epsom Salt

  • Lavender Essential Oil (put droplets on salt to help the oil dissolve)

  • Chamomile blossoms (a bitch to clean up, but worth it)

  • Bubbles

  • Nina Simone (Feelin Good)

  • A funny book

  • Wine

  • Sparkling water

  • Candles

  • Sage or Palo Santo

 
 

How do you like to dress up your bath?
