    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!

    love it!
    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.
