"You can change the world with a hot bath, if you sink into it from a place of knowing that you are worth profound care, even when you’re dirty and rattled. Who knew?"
- Anne LamottGET STARTED
The guiding mission of Book Bath Box is to spread a love of reading, to encourage self-care, and to cultivate joy with each book bath experience. Everyone has their struggles, and everyone deserves care. Here at Book Bath Box, we strive to provide a truly blissful self-care experience for all our customers.
In addition to promoting self-care, Book Bath Box is also about caring for others. We've donated (and continue to donate) proceeds from our boxes and single-purchase products to organizations such as In Other Words Feminist Bookstore and Resource Center, True Colors Fund, Oregon Coalition against Domestic and Sexual Violence, the Malala Fund, and the ACLU.

While I was always a fan of reading and soaking in the tub, I took this interest to a new level when I started experiencing the symptoms of Fibromyalgia. (Or, as I prefer to put it, when I started engaging fibro-monsters in thrilling combat!) These "book baths" started out quite simple, but over time they grew to be more epic and more thematic. I planned them out weeks in advance and always kept an eye out for new treats or products I could use for them.
In December 2015 I began my Booktube channel ( Winx & Ink ). Over the course of a few months, the channel grew, and I decided to hold a couple of giveaways to celebrate. On both occasions, one of the prizes was (surprise, surprise) a box I'd curated with supplies for a book bath. At one point, I also made a discussion video to talk about book baths in general, and the reactions I got to it all was surprising! Everyone seemed to love the boxes I'd put together and the themes I'd used. This is ultimately what fueled my decision to start Book Bath Box, and what launched this nerdy pastime of mine into a business.
