I'm an honorary member of the #SeriousBathersClub. I'd bath every single night if I could. Candlelit baths coupled with my favorite slow jams are spiritual experiences for me, and my favorite way to relieve stress. Let's get this straight: long gone are the days when you have to pick between being a bath person or a shower person, when you can easily do both. Plus, it's tough to compare because they're both completely different. Baths are an intentional act of self-care, and bath bombs are a crucial part of the process.
They add a serene element to any bath. You don't have to be a #BathArt stan like me (check the hashtag on Instagram—you won't be able to stop scrolling) to love them. Yes, they're incredibly Instagrammable, but bath bombs can do amazing things to soften and nourish your skin, relieve muscle pain, and shift your body and mind into relaxation mode. So turn on Do Not Disturb, and get your hands on these best bath bombs full of healthy ingredients that'll take your soak from 50 to 100.
