No matter what season it is or the time of year, we love taking long, warm, relaxing baths. Even in the heat of summer, there’s just something about a bath that makes us feel calm and at ease. Because we’re such DIY lovers as well, we’ve also always had a soft spot for homemade bath products that let us pamper ourselves a little, so we’re always on the lookout for new, natural recipes to make different soaks and scrubs. What’s our favourite bath product of all, you ask? That’s an easy one; we’re completely obsessed with bath bombs! We love using them ourselves, but we also love giving them as gifts to friends and family as well, particularly in seasonal scents and designs.
