About This Quiz

Ahh ... bath time. There's nothing more relaxing than soaking in some warm water that's filled with flowers, essential oils and slices of oranges. But with everyone having a busy lifestyle nowadays, it's hard to find time to take a bath. And for some people, they only have a shower installed in their home. No worries, though, because in this relaxing quiz, you'll get to soak in the tub of your dreams for as long as you want.

A bath doesn't have to be as simple as water + soap. In fact, it's often more fun and enjoyable with some added ingredients, and we'll bet that you can find some in your fridge or kitchen cabinets. For instance, maybe you need a mind and body detox that will melt all the stress away, which is exactly what a ginger-scented bath can do for you. Or, perhaps you've got some dry skin that needs to be soothed, which calls for a warm oatmeal bath. You can also reach for milk, coconut oil, baking soda and tea as well. With so many scents, ingredients and soap colors to choose from, how will you de-stress for today? The only way to find out the answer is by taking this calming quiz now!
