Temps have significantly dropped ushering in the ~cozy~ season. The weather outside can get pretty frightful throughout winter, so make the most of your time indoors with a relaxing pamper session.

After a long day out in the cold, turn your bath into a DIY spa and fill the tub with your choice of therapeutic salts, soaks, and oils. Keep reading for our must-have bath treatments for a rejuvenating night in.

Saint Jane Beauty Deep Sleep Bath Salt, $58

There’s nothing quite like a warm bath to ease stress and prepare the body for a restful night’s sleep. Bath salts take on a crystallized form that melt into water and help exfoliate, relieve irritation, and soften skin. This offering from Saint Jane relieves muscle tension with nutrient-dense bath salts that drench skin in peptides, magnesium, and artisan florals to resurface dullness, promote hydration, and soothe tired muscles.

Herbivore Detox Soaking Salts, $22

These eucalyptus and lavender-scented bath salts awaken a minty, woody aroma that invigorates the mind and detoxifies skin. Pacific sea salts and Cambrian blue clay work in harmony to draw out impurities and deeply refresh pores. After a soak, all skin types will feel cleansed and nourished with moisture retained.

Herbivore Coconut Milk Bath Soak, $22

The difference between bath salts and soaks is pretty minimal as both can cleanse skin and relax the senses. However, bath salts contain salt-based formulas (think Dead Sea, Himalayan, etc.) whereas bath soak formulas can widely vary. This one from Herbivore is made from coconut milk powder to soothe, soften, and moisturize from head to toe. Plus, its soothing vanilla-coconut aroma tantalizes senses and relaxes the mind.

Omorovicza Budapest Bath Oil, $66

If you’re simply looking for aromatherapy and deep skin hydration, go for a rich bath oil. Unlike bath salts and soaks, the goal of bath oil is to restore skin suppleness and calm the mind rather than purify pores. This luxurious option from Omorovicza features a calming blend of rosemary, sage, geranium, and chamomile to effectively ease tension. The silky formula also harnesses jojoba oil to deeply restore skin moisture.

Susanne Kaufmann Bath Moments, $50

Double the soaks, double the fun. This bath set from Susanne Kaufmann features two of the brand’s bestsellers—it’s the ultimate treat. Bath for the Senses harnesses ylang ylang, patchouli, and lavender to promote peaceful slumber and smooth skin. The Mountain Pine Bath features essential oils derived from mountain pine and spruce needle along with a fresh pine sprig handpicked from the forest in the Bregenzerwald. The soul-soothing aroma eases stress and boosts the immune system to ward off winter colds.
