After a long day’s work, there is nothing more relaxing than giving yourself some “me time in the tub”. We all experience Manic Monday’s and most of the time, we can’t wait for TGIF!  We have to admit, no matter how fit we are physically or mentally, we all get tired. We still need to loosen up and relax. So before you call it a day, find some time to enjoy a bath.

Before I start, here is a quick fun fact. Did you know that soaking in a bathtub has been proven to give you quick relief from physical and mental stress? It can improve your mood and revitalize your senses to help keep you relaxed and calm. Isn’t that wonderful?

So here’s what you need to turn those plain tub times into revitalizing and relaxing me time.

  • BellaSentials Bathtub Caddy
  • Essential Oils
  • Your Favorite Book or Tablet
  • BellaSentials Aromatherapy Diffuser

You might wonder where does the BellaSentials Bathtub Caddy come into play? Let me first share its wonders, you’ll definitely want one after this. Our luxury designed bath tray is designed to securely hold your smartphone, tablet, or book while you relax in a soothing bath. It fits any bathtub with no tools required. Simply adjust to the desired length. It has a 27 3/4″ base and expands up to 41 1/2 ” wide.  Our bathtub caddy works like a perfect tray that can hold your favorite book, while you sip a glass of wine.
