For many of us, taking a long, hot shower or bath is an easy and affordable way to relax. You might not be able to spend a day at the spa or salon, but you can put on a comforting playlist, sink into a tub full of bubbles and transport yourself somewhere else for a while.

Of course, it always helps to have a few extra-special items on hand to establish that serene, stress-free environment. Here are 12 products that will make your bathroom feel like a sanctuary whenever you need a little pampering.

If you're all about aromatherapy, then you'll love this bottle of De-Stress Shower Oil. The silky oil-to-milk formula works with the shower's steam to deliver calming notes of frankincense, petitgrain and chamomile. It's the perfect way to reset after a stressful workday or when you need a break from the kids.
