Take long cool soak on International Bath Day

Having a hot or cold soak in a bath is great way to relax and since today, June 14 is International Bath Day, we thought we would celebrate all that is good and beneficial about a long hot soak in the bath.

For some having a long indulgent soak is the height of escapism from the day’s stresses and strains. For others, it’s a chance to clear the mind and find inspiration.

Legend has it that Greek mathematician, astronomer and inventor, Archimedes leapt out of his bathtub and yelled “Eureka!” after he had just discovered – while having a bath – that an object’s volume could be accurately measured when it was submerged in water.

We can’t promise that you’ll invent or discover something that will change the world like Archimedes did, but on a visit to Braehead you’ll find everything you need to make having a bath all the more inviting and relxing

At Braehead’s Lush store you’ll find all the bath bombs, bubble bath bars and handmade soaps you could shake a loofah at. Head to The Body Shop and you can turn a humble bath into something of a spa session with their Pear and Berry Bath Blends, or engage your senses with wild pine, spiced orange or vanilla pumpkin bath bombs. You could also pick up a bath pillow and bamboo hair wrap.

At Boots, there’s a wide choice of bath salts, bath bombs, bath soak, soap and body wash along with various bathtime accessories. They’ve got all you need for some bathtime luxury at Superdrug including bath soak, bath bombs, moisturising soap along with bath pillows, exfoliating scrub and body puffs.

Marks and Spencer is another store with a wide variety of bath products including foam bath, bath salts, body wash, seaweed bath gel, quick drying bath mats, bath towels and luxury bathrobes.

Over at Primark you can pick up bath bombs, body brush, hair wrap, sponges and body puffs. Braehead’s Next Home store in Braehead Retail Park is an ideal place to get bath towels, four-tier storage baskets, bath mats and lemon and bergamot diffuser sets and candles.

The kids don’t need to miss out on bathtime with The Entertainer selling a wide variety of bathtime toys and playsets, along with Create your Own Bath Bomb Bakery set and a Make your Own Soap kit. And to make your bathtime that more special you can turn out the light and illuminate your big soak with various scented candles from the Yankee Candle store at Braehead.

So, if a normal bath just won’t wash and you want to add a bit of luxury to your bathtime, then head to Braehead and we’ll make sure you have a soap-er time when you have your next long soak!
