Bathtime is Our Best Time of Day

Not only is a bath a good excuse for some much needed time to yourself, it’s also proven to help you sleep - something we all need help with in these midlife years. Here’s our edit of the best products for your most relaxing bath yet.

Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil, £49


Created to cure the founders’ own insomnia, this Aromatherapy Associates oil is your antidote to sleepless nights. Using natural ingredients, the blend of vetivert, camomile and sandalwood will put your mind into a peaceful state and even stimulate your immune system to better defend your body. Just add a couple of drops into the running water and prepare for pure bliss.

Susanne Kauffman Oil Bath For The Senses, £71


For a bath oil that not only de-stresses your mind but also deeply nourishes your body, try this from Susanne Kauffman. Born and raised in a valley in the alps, she uses the healing powers of nature in all of her products. This is formulated with ylang-ylang, lavender and patchouli, to soften and smooth your skin while uplifting your mood and calming your mind.

Laura Mercier Crème Brûlée Honey Bath, £37


Containing shea butter and Vitamins A and E, Laura Mercier’s bath soak will hydrate and protect your skin while balancing its moisture levels, leaving you feeling silky smooth after just one use. Create bubbles using the wooden honey dipper then lie back and relax while it gets to work.

Molton Brown Blissful Templetree Bath and Shower Gel, £22


There’s bubble bath, and then there’s Molton Brown bubble bath. Once you’ve tried it there’s no going back. This scent is deliciously fresh and calming, while the formula is super gentle on your skin. It also doubles up as a shower gel, so if you can’t get enough, you can get your fix every day.

Neom Perfect Night’s Sleep Bath Oil, £40


If you’ve enjoyed one of their candles, you’ll know that Neom are masters of creating beautiful scents. Using the pipette, add a few drops of this oil into your running bath water for an indulgent, spa-like experience. Containing safflower, jojoba and Vitamin E, it will also leave your skin feeling baby soft.

REN Atlantic Kelp And Microalgae Anti-Fatigue Bath Oil, £22


Formulated with nourishing Atlantic kelp and replenishing plankton extract, this marine-scented bath oil will refresh and relax. It also contains stress-busting magnesium which is an important nutrient during the menopause, aiding bone health, nerve function, mood swings, and even depression. Vegan and cruelty-free, this is clean beauty at its best.

This Works Bath Soak, £35


If you love This Works pillow spray (as many of us do), this bath soak uses the same superblend of lavender, vetivert and chamomile to help you fall asleep quickly. Working to relieve any stress or tension in your mind and body, it will also improve the quality of your sleep.
