Happy nontoxic Valentine’s Day: bubble bath

Slide1

Is there anything more indulgent than a bubble bath? Hands down, my favorite place in my home is the soaking tub. It gets a ton of use. Even a quick foot soak after a long day is enough for me to feel nourished and refreshed. I stock up on bubble baths to   care for every mood and beeswax candles (they purify the air) like it’s my job. That way, bath time always feels like a retreat and a reset.

High fashion takes its cues from cool kids on the streets, but mainstream consumers (and consumer brands) take inspiration from Hollywood.
