11 Bath Oils That’ll Make You Never Want to Leave the Tub

Forget about Netflix and chill. When we need a respite from the cold, harsh elements outside, the bathtub is the place to be. The warm water can make us forget about lengthy to-do lists, looming deadlines and frigid temperatures, especially if we have a good book and music playing softly in the background. While a foaming bubble bath will almost never let us down, a bath oil can upgrade the entire experience to spa-like levels.

Bath oils are a welcome addition to the tub on the dark days of winter when central heating and arctic temperatures have left our skin flaky and dry. A few drops of a rich bath oil will turn the water into a fragrant pool that nourishes parched skin without leaving behind a greasy coating. Not to mention pretty colors that rival a bath bomb and a soft, relaxing scent. After a few minutes of soaking, troubles (and dry skin) can seem very far away.

Get ready to clear that calendar and spend a tranquil spa day at home enjoying these 11 best bath oils.

President Saved From Spider Assassin

President Saved From Spider Assassin

When I think of assassination attempts on the president, I usually imagine the affair being handled by a highly trained spy trying to poison his food or make a nighttime attack while he’s asleep in bed. The important detail here is that the assassin is always a human. So, when I discovered that the president had recently been heroically saved from an assassination attempt, imagine my surprise when I found out that the culprit was not a human but rather a spider that had managed to sneak into the very heart of the White House, the Oval Office. Apparently assassins can come in all shapes and sizes.

Mark Burns, an evangelical pastor from South Carolina, was attending a meeting, along with a number of other evangelical leaders, in the Oval Office to present President Trump with an award for recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Israel when he noticed that something was crawling up the president’s back. Burns reported that he was standing behind the president, who was seated at the Resolute desk in the Oval Office, when he first spied the half-dollar-sized white spider crawling slowly up the president’s back. At first Burns couldn’t believe his eyes. “I just thought I was dreaming,” recounted Burns in a telephone interview. “Is that really a spider running up the back of the president of the United States?”

Once his shock faded away Burns was faced with the dilemma of what he should do to help the president. While Burns admits he hates spiders, he saw no other option but to step in and help the president himself before the spider managed to crawl up to his neck. Burns quickly whacked the spider, and in turn the president, with his hand, flinging the assassin away from its target. As you may have guessed, the rest of the people in the room were rather shocked and taken aback by Burns’ outburst, wondering why he suddenly appeared to be attacking the president. Before the secret service had a chance to tackle Burns, he quickly explained his actions, yelling “Security, please don’t shoot me! He had a spider on his back.”

The president, who didn’t seem remotely fazed by the outburst, simply turned to Burns and calmly asked, “Well, did you kill the spider?” Burns then presented the dead spider as proof of his good intentions. After later sending a picture of the spider to experts, he discovered that the spider was a “yellow sac” spider, a species commonly found indoors in the District and throughout the country in the winter months. While the spider’s bite can be extremely painful with symptoms including am intense burning sensation, rash, and blistering, it is not fatal. Burns finished his heroic moment with the lighthearted comment, “I just said to the president, I said, you know, ‘I still got your back.’ He said, ‘I know you got my back.’”

Have you seen these white spiders in your home this winter? What would you do if you were in the same situation?

Trump reportedly considered rescinding Neil Gorsuch's nomination to the Supreme Court after questioning whether he would be 'loyal'

Neil Gorsuch Donald Trump

  • Prior to his confirmation to the US Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch reportedly said that he found President Donald Trump’s criticism on the federal judicial system “disheartening” and “demoralizing.”
  • Trump was said to be infuriated by the reported remark and considered rescinding his nomination.

Prior to his public praise of Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court, President Donald Trump reportedly stewed over doubts about his loyalty, which stemmed from comments Gorsuch made during a private meeting with lawmakers earlier this year.

Gorsuch, who was nominated to take the late Justice Anonin Scalia’s seat on the Supreme Court, said that he found Trump’s criticisms about the federal judicial system “disheartening” and “demoralizing,” according to Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, who previously met with Gorsuch.

Following reports of Gorsuch’s comments, Trump considered rescinding his nomination and worried that he would not be “loyal,” according to one of the 11 people interviewed in a Washington Post report published on Monday.

“It’s clear [Trump] was very upset with the comment,” another source said.

Gorsuch’s comments at the time came amid Trump’s rants about a federal judge, who shut down his controversial travel ban that prevented people from seven majority-Muslim countries entering the US.

“Just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril,” Trump said on Twitter in February. “If something happens blame him and court system. People pouring in. Bad!”

During a meeting with top Republican leaders, Trump reportedly assailed Gorsuch and said “He’s probably going to end up being a liberal like the rest of them.”

“You never know with these guys,” Trump reportedly said, according to a source cited by The Post.

Trump was also reportedly upset that Gorsuch did not appear to be grateful of his nomination, according to White House officials in The Post. Although Gorsuch wrote a handwritten letter, dated March 2, thanking Trump for the nomination, Trump did not see it until eight days later, The Post reported.

“Your address to Congress was magnificent,” Gorsuch reportedly said in his letter. “And you were so kind to recognize Mrs. Scalia, remember the justice, and mention me. My teenage daughters were cheering the TV!”

Meanwhile, White House officials publicly denied that Gorsuch’s nominations were in jeopardy: ” The president’s nomination of Neil M. Gorsuch was among his first and most important accomplishments during his first year in office, and delivered on a major campaign promise,” White House spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement to The Post. “At no point did the president consider withdrawing Justice Gorsuch’s nomination. He is very proud of the accomplishment.”
