I do not have a Christmas tree in my home (too much of a mess, no time to water, and let’s not even get started on my cat possibly scaling the branches), but Dr. Hauschka’s Limited-Edition Spruce Warming Bath Essence makes it smell like there is one. Although the notion of bathing in pine needles doesn’t sound appealing, at the end of a day during this frantic yet festive season, this woody-scented blend is a divine way to de-stress. Give this green fluid to the Grinches in your life, send it to the Ebenezer Scrooge of the family—a luxurious soak steeped with tension-relieving spruce essential oil (along with hydrating jojoba) will boost their mood, warm their frostbitten toes, and possibly even melt their hearts. Plus, it’s guaranteed to keep them in the holiday spirit long after the Fraser fir is put curbside.
