A Bachelor’s Guide to Organic Bathing Basics

Here’s the problem: You’re a bachelor and have invited a very special woman to spend the weekend. She loves bathing, and you want to create an organic sanctuary for her — but you haven’t a clue what to get. We asked Mary Bemis, editor-in-chief of Organic Spa magazine, for a shopping list of biodynamic or organic products that likely would be available almost anywhere. Here’s what she suggests:

  • Aromatic soy candle
  • Body brush for dry brushing
  • Bath oil or bath salts for the morning in rosemary or lemon from Dr. Hauschka, Kneipp, or Weleda
  • Bath oil or salts for the evening in lavender or eucalyptus
  • Soap from Dr. Bronner or Kiss My Face
  • Body lotion or body oil from Dr. Bronner, Dr. Hauschka, or Kneipp
  • Organic cotton balls and cotton swabs
  • Organic towels from Coyuchi
  • Organic linen terry bathrobe from Rawganique.com, or bamboo spa robe from Vivaterra.com
