The Bath Project Book

The Art & Science of Bathing

by Dr Barbara Kubicka

Dr Barbara Kubicka has combined her medical background and her passion for bathology to create the ultimate, comprehensive guide to bathing. This book, available as an e-book and hardback, is as beautiful as it is useful, with inspiring illustrations and photography that invite readers into the fragrant and luxurious world of bathing. Over 20 pages of recipes show how to create the perfect bath at home according to specific needs, such as weight loss, menstrual pain, insomnia, stress relief, and more.

Bathology looks at the benefits a bath can deliver to the body, mind, and skin. It provides detailed instructions on how to carefully prepare a bath for optimum benefits, considering every aspect in precise detail. Chemistry (salts, clays, oils), biology (aromatherapy, Bach flower remedies, herbal medicine, organic acids) and physics (temperature, time of day, colours) are all explored in depth. Readers will discover the extraordinary health benefits of key ingredients as well as the transformational effects of oils and aromatherapy to stimulate the mind, body, and spirit.

    Beautiful and Informative Book

    What a beautiful book! All you need to know about bathing, whether for relaxation and wellbeing or for special treatments.
    Just by reading it you are transported in a beautiful and peaceful world. Highly recommended when you want to learn and treat yourself at the same time.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Recipes Are Well Worth A Try
    Gorgeous book – after reading/flicking through you can’t help but want to take a bath/visit a spa. I highly recommend trying out the recipes, they are amazing. The one for low energy was so lovely, very luxurious and I can’t wait to indulge myself and try the others.

    If you or know somebody who loves relaxing in a bath or needs some bath inspiration – this would be a really lovely present.

    Gorgeous, useful book – a must have for anyone who loves a good bath.
    Brilliant book. I love baths – so this was a no brainer for me. The illustrations are gorgeous and I loved that there was a doctor writing about the health benefits of the different bath potions. It turns a nightly bath into the most beautiful ritual. I tried a couple of them (there are recipes) and they turned out great. Highly recommend!

    book puts together knowledge and pleasure in such an easy, effortless way. I tried the “refreshing” bath and it did work – better than coffee)) love the fabric cover and nice thick pages. a real gem.
