I was pottering about the bathroom and I realised that my bathing habits have taken a distinctly wintery tinge of late. Usually I favour either the herbal (the blue or green Radox Mr B buys, or the wonderful Neal’s Yard Seaweed and Arnica bath stuff) or the floral (I love Ren Moroccan Rose bath oil and Neal’s Yard Geranium and Orange). But lately I’ve been using these:
A ginger bubble bath that recently found when decluttering the bathroom, and which I bought so long ago I’m not sure the shop still sells it, a honey, milk and almond one which smells pleasingly custardy and a hot chili chocolate one, bought on a whim in Waitrose. (It smells, to me, of neither chili nor chocolate, but it is very warm and spicy and makes lovely frothy bubbles. Also a nice heavy glass bottle for people for whom these things matter.
This was all completely unconscious – I shall keep an eye on my bathing habits in case my choice of bubble bath is an early harbinger of spring.
