The Waters of Bath

(5 customer reviews)


The Waters of Bath has a brisk and reviving scent made from an invigorating blend of tea tree, eucalyptus, lavender, and peppermint essential oil. Persuasion and Northanger Abbey are both partially set in Bath, England, and Jane Austen herself lived there between 1801 and 1806. The waters themselves attracted many visitors as they were thought to have special healing properties.

“My father can seldom be prevailed on to give the waters what I think a fair trial.” ~Miss Tilney, regarding their abrupt removal from Bath. Excerpt from Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey.

“Lady Russell’s composed mind and polite manners were put to some trial on this point, in her intercourse in Camden Place. The sight of Mrs Clay in such favour, and of Anne so overlooked, was a perpetual provocation to her there; and vexed her as much when she was away, as a person in Bath who drinks the water, gets all the new publications, and has a very large acquaintance, has time to be vexed.” ~Excerpt from Persuasion.

    This soap has an herbal, clean scent and leaves me feeling like I have just been to the Waters of Bath. I love the gradations of color in the soap. It probably isn’t actually healing, but that didn’t stop me feeling a little better after using it.

    So the soap looks BEAUTIFUL, but the smell was a bit too “menthol” for me. Still, some people may find it pleasing.

  3. Zachary Nichols

    Amazing! A really natural but very clean scent! Love using it for my hand soap in the bathroom!

  4. Camie

    This soap is one of my favorites! It’s lovely to look at and the scent is perfect for the shower.

    I love this soap. It’s very refreshing and spa-like. Not overpowering at all.
