One of my guilty pleasures is taking bubble baths. Happy Bubble Bath day, by the way! Nothing relaxes me more than creating a spa like atmosphere at home with calming new age music, candles, a bath pillow and soaking my stress away in warm bubbly aromatherapy.
Enjoying a glass of wine during bath time is nice too. Bubble baths do more than just relax the mind, body, and spirit; they are also great for our skin and soothe achy muscles. The warmth of the soak is extremely relaxing and is a natural way to boost your immune system and hydrate your skin. As for the aromatherapy part of my bubble bath, I like to find scented foams that are floral and herbal. Here is one of my favorite bath recipes:

Other ingredients you can add to your bath:
In Ancient Rome, bathing at a public facility was part of the daily routine for most citizens. A trip bathed once a week for personal hygiene. A trip to the Roman baths might include a dip in a hot tub, a brief break in the sauna, and a refreshing swim in the cold pool. Up until the late 1940’s, the average American bathed once a week for personal hygiene.
Being in the Spa industry for many years, one question I get frequently asked by clients is “what can I use at home for a mini-spa bath experience?” Here are a few items that can enhance a mini-spa bath experience at home.
Today, a daily shower is standard, but it’s nice to indulge in a luxurious bubble bath every occasionally. Bubble baths can help open your pores, cleanse your skin, and relax muscles. Enhance your bath time with a few fun accessories like a bath pillow, facial mask, shower cap, body brush, and a book. Enjoy!
