Are there natural relaxants I can use in my bath?

Herbal Stress Relievers

A warm bath is relaxing, but adding some well-chosen herbs to the water could make your soak even more effective. Place dried herbs -- a single herb or a mixture of your favorites -- in a cloth or net bag, then toss the bag into the tub or hang it from the faucet as the tub fills. For a refreshing, stimulating bath, try lovage, mint, rosemary, sage, orange, pine, or thyme. To calm down at the end of a busy day, chamomile, sandalwood, lavender, marjoram, marigold, or mint are good choices for natural herbal stress relievers.
