“There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them." - Sylvia Plath
As days get shorter, nights get longer, and knitwear is being dug out from the depths of our wardrobes, there’s only one place we want to spend our time – in the tub. Research from the ‘Complementary Therapies in Medicine Journal’ shows that soaking daily in warm water is more effective at easing anxiety than taking medication, so what better way to relax and unwind this winter? Dry, sensitive skin is soothed, weary limbs are relaxed (perfect post-festive celebrations), circulation is boosted, and minds are cleared of worries, making the tub the ultimate place to transform yourself from head to toe.
