best bath salts for relaxing

It’s time to fess up. Pre-pandemic, we were avid bath haters. As in, the last time we recall actually enjoying a bath is when we were five years old and could distract ourselves with the body wash that was also a Gameboy (if you’re a 90s kid, then you’ll know).

With that being said, during these – dare we say it – strange and unprecedented times, we've reacquainted ourselves with a steamy soak in the tub (all in the name of self-care) and now, we’re obsessed. The game-changer? Bath salts.

Bath salts are the secret ingredient that take the experience from nought to ten. Not only because they look pretty and smell good, but because they’re also a great way to detox, de-stress and soothe away aches and pains.

With Google searches for ‘bath salts’ up by 83%, it looks like we’re not the only ones that have been converted in the last year. So with that, we present the best bath salts of 2021 for a relaxing soak.
