The best soaps, salts, oils and scrubs to make your bath ritual soothing and relaxing.

A weekly or nightly bath ritual allows us  to slow down, breathe and just be. And a warm bath is particularly delightful as the temperatures cool and it’s time to get cozy.

To make the most of bath time, pick up some luxe products, including soaps, salts, oils and scrubs. Here are some of our favorites.

Herbivore Calm Bath Salts ($18 at herbivorebotanicals.com). With calming hints of vanilla and ylang ylang, these Pacific sea salts from the Seattle-based, vegan beauty brand are some of the best we have tried.

Fresh Zodiac Sign Soap ($15 at fresh.com). Artistic wrapping inspired by the signs of the zodiac and unique scents make these limited-edition bars a standout for gifting or keeping for yourself.

Krigler Lovely Patchouli 55 Soap ($35 at krigler.com). Rich in lather (and history — it’s the signature scent of Jackie Onassis), this opulent soap raises the bar with a creamy formula and perfume-level scent.

French Girl Sea Polish ($38 at frenchgirlorganics.com). This organic exfoliator from the Seattle-based, all-natural French Girl line smells out of this world, and is one of the most exfoliating and hydrating products on the market.

Fig + Yarrow Bath + Body Oil ($48 at figandyarrow.com). Soothing for any skin type, this woodsy elixir features a rich blend of oils (hemp, avocado, olive and grape) to help keep your skin blissfully clear.

Aerin Tuberose Luxuriant Body Wash ($65 at Nordstrom). Delicate in fragrance and easy on sensitive skin, this luxe body wash is one of the best for replenishing moisture.

Maison Margiela Replica Beach Walk Dry Body Oil ($60 at Sephora). This nourishing dry oil comes in one of our favorite Maison Margiela fragrances. Apply it to the skin during or post-bath and you’ll be left with lingering notes of bergamot, coconut milk, lemon, pink pepper and musk.

Pursoma Hot Tub Bath ($36 at store.pursomalife.com). As much as we love the transition to fall, cooler temperatures always seem to bring runny noses and congestion. However, these bath minerals help alleviate even the worst cold symptoms, from body aches to fatigue to sinus pain.

Lush Milky Bath Bubble Bar ($8 at lushusa.com). Infused with softening agents like cocoa butter, olive oil and soy milk, this soapy staple is going to be on standby in our bathrooms the entire fall season.
