What is the best thing to add to your bathtub to relieve stress?

I am tight and tense in my neck, shoulder area and my feet hurt alot. I am getting lots of headaches and need something relaxing to help me sleep better. Lots on mind and haven't sleep well in a couple nights.

  • If things are good with hubby, I say a bubble bath, glass of wine and then really good sex...

    If hubby is part of the stress, your fav music for your bath, bubbles and wine....

  • If you can get to the store, find anything for the bath with lavender in it. Hell, if you have to get the baby Johnsons bed time bath. Light some candles, turn off the lights and relax. But make sure you don't walk into a well lit room after...or that kills it!! And get some Tylenol PM...that'll help with the pain. Good luck and I hope you feel better

  • Irish Spring Liquid Soap (in a dark green plastic bottle) and baking soda. The baking soda softens and smooths your skin all over everywhere after you soak for a while. The Irish Spring has different scents and great bubbles come from it.

  • Ooo - I know how that feels. Vanilla is soothing, and lavender is relaxing. To sleep better, try a little milk with a bit of honey, stretching out those muscles, and reading often helps me. Good luck - hope you sleep well!
