I love to end the day with a relaxing bath and a good book. It’s a wonderful way to warm up, wind down, and spend some time alone with your thoughts. Baths have always been my go to relaxation ritual; something that nourished my mind and my spirit. However, there was a time when baths were also a completely unhealthy ritual. Before my health-esteem journey I bathed in a disgusting overload of bubble baths, soaps, oils, fragrances and more. Imagine how horrified I was when I discovered all of the unhealthy chemicals that I had been soaking in for hours at a time.
According to the EWG, on average, women use approximately 12 products per day, containing around 168 unique ingredients. Some of these ingredients might not be the best options for your health.
