Nothing beats a nice long bath after a really tiring day. As an extra treat, you can dim the lights, light some scented candles, or put in some bath bombs. If you don’t know what bath bombs are, these are delightful balls that smell oh-so-good. When dropped in the water, they explode in a colourful fizz.
