As I sit in my post-yoga food coma (in case you're wondering, it was a Thai Coconut Curry Innocent Veg Pot, two pieces of seeded loaf from the Bon Appetit bakery on the corner, one Waitrose Pink Lady apple and so far, one and a half chocolate chip cookies that I baked yesterday morning - I'm officially back on fine eating form) on a cool and cloudy Sunday afternoon, the only thing keeping me from drifting off to inevitable la-la land on this Fatboy (John's glorious eBay purchase he keeps thinking of re-selling but then exclaims, "Wow, this thing ... is really comfortable!" each time he gives it another chance) is the thought of sliding into a scalding hot bubble bath, courtesy of Original Source's Lavender and Tea Tree Bath Foam.

Now, I'm not a big fan of baths.  Quite frankly, I find sitting in your own filth more stress-inducing than relaxing.  But this particular bath foam and its heady, intoxicating lavender essential oils causes me, on more than one occasion, to slip into utter blissfulness in the comfort of my own, tiny London bathroom.  In effect, it turns my bathroom into a spa.  No exaggeration (especially if you go as far as to light the tea lights surrounding the edge of the tub).

I have strong opinions (if you couldn't tell already), so I like to wax lyrical about the things I love.  And I love this bubble bath - if not for its magical, healing qualities, for its astonishing price of £2.99 (or perhaps even cheaper, as Original Source products are almost always on offer at Superdrug and come in plenty of other delicious, yummy, fruity flavors).  If I'm grumpy, stressed, in need of pampering, or suffering from aches and chills from some various ailment (as Lauren kindly pointed out I often am), this definitely does the trick.

I highly recommend it.  Zzzz ...


  1. should complete the luxury with lavender soda too. yes, they sell it at the metropolitan market.

  2. Yesterday, when I was at Waitrose, I noticed they sold cinnamon sugar in these delightful glass jars, and also LAVENDER sugar. Amazing. Too good to go on toast.


  3. Nice post. I was checking constantly this blog and I’m impressed! Extremely useful info specially the last part I care for such information a lot. I was seeking this certain info for a long time.
