This box gives all bath bombs I've tried a run for the money! The packaging was super cute and totally giftable. I was really impressed at the quality of the bath bomb itself, too (I used Heal tonight) and I love that this uses natural essential oils. During this COVID-19 outbreak, I have had a lot of stress and anxiety and have enjoyed a bath nearly every night for the past week. This bomb gave me the most serene experience, and they are HUGE! At least double the size of ones I've used before. Comparable to the size of Lush bombs.

    the book next to cup of tea on reviewer's bed

    Promising review: "I love the concept of hygge because being cozy and surrounded by the people I love are my favorite things in the world. The book is informative and just a great guide for how to slow down a busy life and learn to appreciate the little things we all take for granted: having a calm day at home, candles, cozy clothing, and time spent with family and close friends. This book reminds me to think of the little things during times of great stress. I love it so much. I now own the audiobook (which I listen to fairly often, especially at work when I'm trying to meet a deadline), the physical copy, and now the ebook version on my Kindle — I want to have access to hygge everywhere I go." —Kelsey
