Washing Away the Day
I fell in love with baths when I was filming "Emma" in the U.K. more than twenty years ago. Cold weather in England is deep, bone-chilling, and wet—the only thing that fixes it is a hot bath. Every single night on the film I would take one, a routine that has stuck with me to this day.
Later, when my kids were babies and toddlers, we always took baths together. We had this big bathtub in a dressing room—it even had a fireplace—that was so magical. It was the best room in the world.
Over the years, as I read a lot, and saw various doctors, healers, and experts, I started experimenting with bath add-ons, like epsom salts, baking soda, apple cider vinegar, essential oils in various combinations. What I really wanted to do was bottle these concoctions, plus make it magical, and mystical, and as nourishing as a thermal hot springs. I kept thinking about swimming in nature: The ocean, dense with salt; a pond or lake replete with algae; the fluidity of a cold creek or stream that has the power to wash a bad day away.
So I went to Paul Kempisty, a NYC-based master herbalist and acupuncturist; there is a science to essential oils and botanicals, and he knows precisely how to harness it. We set out to create veritable potions to address those end-of-day states that we all know too well—emotional overwhelm, sore muscles, an incipient cold, a racing mind, a body that’s over-indulged—with a powerful and perfectly pre-metered blend of salts, essential oils, minerals, and botanicals. The mystical power of plants and natural bodies of water, distilled in a single package.
I still take a bath every night; it’s an important ritual to putting an end cap on the day. So here’s to turning on the tap.
