A bath for every season

Craving the comfort of a warm, spicy, soak, or fancy a zesty dip to get your blood pumping? Whether it’s two degrees outside, or 22 there’s a bath for every month of the year. Let’s make it a date!

January

Butterball

It’s New Year's day and the back-to-work apprehension sets in, washing over fuzzy heads that are weary from the party season. So why not unglue yourself from festive T.V. for just half an hour to hydrate skin left thirsty by the cold weather, and run a bath to banish the January blues?

Take a dip and feel the embrace of cocoa-soft water. Place your Butterball in the bath and watch it bob and gently fizz; an act of mindfulness to quiet a busy mind. This understated bath bomb is packed with cocoa butter pieces that melt in the warm water, soothing sensitive skin and leaving it remarkably smooth. Used in aromatherapy to ease stress and depression, heady ylang ylang will push out negativity and blanket you in floral comfort.

Feeling better for that? New Year adventures await you and your skin is ready to take on anything.

February

Tisty Tosty

By the time February rolls in most of us are in need of a little lovin’. Those long, cold nights are perfect for…dips in cosy baths of course! Whether you choose to go solo or sidle up to somebody for a shared soak, sink into a sensual sea of flowers and fall in love with bathtime again.

Place a Tisty Tosty bath bomb in steamy bath water and lie back in this bath of roses. Based on a medieval love potion, this classic rose bath bomb is topped with seven stunning rose buds that float around the bath as it fizzes. Sensual jasmine undertones run alongside fragrant rose for an amorous twist, while fresh lemon oil energises and orris root powder brings a sweet yet woody element to this uplifting and restorative bath bomb. Conjure up a spellbinding bath and who knows, maybe your valentine will jump in the water with you.

March

Blue Skies And Fluffy White Clouds

The days are getting longer and the morning’s brighter. Greenery creeps back into the trees and bursts of colour from flowers pop up here and there. Everyone seems to have a little more spring in their step and the sight of sunshine lifts spirits.

Crumble some Blue Skies And Fluffy White Clouds bubble bar under running water to summon piles of thick, frothy bubbles. Reminiscent of countryside walks and fields of fresh air, it is brimming with earthy patchouli and woody frankincense. Bathe in bubbles fluffier than a lamb, and settle into pastel blue waters scented with spicy cinnamon leaf oil. Patchouli is gentle and uplifting, while cinnamon leaf stimulates the skin to improve circulation ready for brisk walks in better weather.

April

Over And Over

More hours of sunlight means more time to be outside. Perhaps you’ve spent a long day gardening, untangling overgrown shrubs neglected in winter and planting new flowers to enjoy and tend to in Summer.

Weary from working, why not run yourself the botanical bath you deserve and rest aching muscles in swirling pink and yellow waters. Over And Over bath bomb explodes with fresh, juicy citrus and herbaceous fennel. Cloaked in conditioning Fair Trade Organic cocoa butter this bath bomb rolls over and over into softening water, creating clouds of invigorating scent as it goes.

May

Sakura

Awake to sun beams streaming through the curtains, stretch limbs, blink eyelids and slowly roll out of bed and shuffle into the bathroom. Perhaps May bank holiday awaits you and the anticipation of the three day weekend ahead fills you with elation. Whether it’s family time spent on the beach or BBQs with friends, start your day with a bath to ease you into the busy bank holiday-filled month of May.

Before the day gets too hot, run yourself a deep bath. Place a Sakura bath bomb in the water and watch pastel shades erupt. Breathe in the tropical mimosa fragrance. Sweet, floral clouds rise and fill the air, while woody undertones keep you grounded and rich, sensual jasmine notes and cheerful orange flower absolute lift your senses into rapture for absolute bathtime bliss. A deeply cleansing bath bomb, Sakura will leave your skin feeling refreshed and your mind energized.

June

Sunnyside

The Summer solstice is on its way and June marks the start of the festival season. Embrace your hippy spirit and dance naked into golden sunrise baths and through forests of spicy patchouli. Before setting up camp in a muddy field, why not treat yourself to a pre-festival bath? (Because let’s face it, how much washing will actually happen once you’re there?)

Crumble some Sunnyside bubble bar under the running water and watch mounds of majestic bubbles rise from the bath. This shimmer-filled bubble bar makes glorious, golden soaks covering you in carnival-ready glitter. A trio of zesty citrus makes this bubble bar the perfect pick-me-up, so you can psyche yourself up for party time and get stuck in...to all that festival mud!

July

Big Blue

It’s the peak heat of Summer and that big yellow ball seems to chase you down making it difficult to seek shade and keep your cool. Even the most serious of sun catchers are feeling the heat and after a long day in the sun a bath might just be your saving grace.

Run a lukewarm bath and take a dip in the great unknown. Place a Big Blue bath bomb in the water and watch as it lets loose mineral-rich seaweed that softens in the water, moisturising the skin. The water becomes a vibrant turquoise, fine sea salt cleanses and hydrates and a burst of lavender and lemon oil refreshes and cools, balancing the skin and calming the mind.

August

Intergalactic

If you’re feeling a little rosy cheeked from the sunshine, let peppermint oil and lavender cool and soothe. The following bath bomb will let you retreat from the heat of the scorching midday sunshine.

Let your bath become a space shuttle, by placing an Intergalactic bath bomb in the water. As it fizzes and pops you’ll cross galaxies, whizz through black holes past shooting stars and sink into the cooling cosmos where refreshing peppermint and juicy grapefruit invigorate both body and mind. A rumble of popping candy fills the bathtub, while vetivert and sandalwood calm and tone. The water comes alive with swirling solar systems; sparkling and stirring, whilst hypnotising colour mesmerises and clouds of fresh mint clears the sinuses.

September

Yellow Submarine

Summer’s not over just yet! Keep on glowing with some truly tropical bathtime indulgences. As things begin to quiet down, set sail into a sunshine paradise where sunsets and sandy shores fill your bathtub.

Watch as a Yellow Submarine bath bomb propels itself around your bath, leaving a frothy trail of pink and yellow bubbles as it goes. Breathe in coconut scented sea spray whilst sitting on the coast of your own personal island paradise. As your Yellow Submarine melts into a breathtaking sunset, Brazilian orange, lemongrass and coriander seed oil invigorate your senses like a cooling dip in the ocean.

October

The Comforter

As the cold draws in and Autumn takes hold Summer can feel far away. A bit of a pick me up may be necessary to lift spirits and take your mind off the chill. Perhaps a bath filled with berry bubbles could do just that.

Crumble The Comforter bubble bar under the running tap (Use as little or as much as you please. The more of the bar you use, the more bubbles will appear) and watch as pink suds rise from the water. A fruity little number, this bubble bar combines a deep, rich blackcurrant fragrance with cheerful bergamot oil. Cypress oil delivers an earthy tone; a woody essential oil which is often used by aromatherapists in the winter months to evoke positivity and help induce relaxation. You’ll wish you could bathe in feel-good bubbles like these everyday.

November

Fizzbanger

Bathe in cosy cinnamon waters before wrapping up in big, wooly jumpers, bobble hats and big scarves and heading out to bonfires in the crisp cold.

From the comfort of a candlelit bath, revel in your own personal Fizzbanger firework show. This toffee apple-sweet bath bomb crackles with popping candy as it dissolves, cinnamon stimulates the circulation to help keep you warm, whilst an earthy oak moss fragrance evokes mossy forest floors, damp from fresh rain. Citrusy petitgrain oil is used by aromatherapists to help alleviate mental fatigue, perfect for shorter days and chillier weather and a touch of intoxicatingly floral ylang ylang can help ease feelings of stress and anxiety. You won’t want to step out of these cheerfully scented bath waters.

December

Twilight

Christmas can be a hectic time; a balancing act of shopping bags and organisation, last minute present panics and food hauls, so slip into a soothing bath and forget about the nut loaf and brussel sprouts (for now at least).

Lavender has long been linked with relaxation; used in aromatherapy for years as a natural stress reliever it can help lull you into a soporific slumber, reducing anxiety and quieting a busy mind. Indulge in a lavender filled bedtime routine for a sound night’s sleep before the frantic rush of Christmas day.

Sit back in the warm water and let a Twilight bath bomb roll and tumble around your bath, releasing fizzy pastel pink and purple clouds of sweet tonka and mollifying lavender. Heady ylang ylang transports your mind to care-free shores, whilst benzoin resinoid eases muscles and relaxes mind and body. Breathe in deep and set sail for the land of sleep.
