Publisher Comments:

Here's a fun collection of more than 50 recipes for transforming a bath into a delicious escape, aimed at women who want to pamper themselves with at-home treatments that rival those at the most fashionable spas. Those who spend too much time in dirty, crowded cities can detoxify with the "Big City" bath containing citrus fruit and mustard powder. "Turbo Tub" provides energy, while "Drowsy Lavender Bath" is meant to calm and induce sleep. Each recipe is composed of natural, healthful ingredients, and accompanied by suggestions for appropriate bath toys. Illustrated with colorful, informative artwork, The Bath Gourmet even has a waterproof vinyl cover. From Publishers Weekly: Whether they're seeking to soothe themselves, cure pains, relax, romance a partner or even have a snack while getting clean, bathers will find a recipe for the perfect bath in this DIY volume by enthusiastic bather Van.... Helpful sidebars abound, explaining how to score cheap rose petals at the florist for the Ultimate Seduction Rose Bath, where to find canned coconut milk for the Tiki Tub, and how to pour rice into the foot of a stocking for the Sushi Bath.

Review:

"Whether they're seeking to soothe themselves, cure pains, relax, romance a partner or even have a snack while getting clean, bathers will find a recipe for the perfect bath in this DIY volume by enthusiastic bather Van. Most of Van's recipes call for typical bath ingredients, such as baking soda and the ubiquitous Epsom salt. From there, bathers can add rosemary and fresh mint if they want to renew themselves; seaweed and sesame oil if they want to detoxify, energize and moisturize; or coconut oil and imitation rum extract (or even straight rum) to mend a 'really bad mood.' Helpful sidebars abound, explaining how to score cheap rose petals at the florist for the Ultimate Seduction Rose Bath, where to find canned coconut milk for the Tiki Tub, and how to pour rice into the foot of a stocking for the Sushi Bath.
