It’s Wicked Wednesday. Hump Day. The week is half over. Time for a wicked indulgence. Comfort for a bad day or celebration for a good day. You earned it.
Today’s wicked indulgence: take a wickedly pleasureable bubble bath. Soaking in a fizzy tub of bubbles is magical! It can make you feel like a whole new person.
Bathing is immensely pleasurable and makes you feel clean and comfortable. Bubbles are so charming and playful! Slipping into a warm cocoon of soapy bubbles is relaxing, reviving, recharging, energizing, and detoxing. A steamy tub of bubbles can sooth your aches and pains, lift your spirits, and wash away your troubles. A warm bath is also the best remedy for a good night’s sleep. And, sprawling in a tub of fragrant, playful bubbles with your lover is intimate and romantic and very, very sexy.
Taking a simple bath can be incredibly healing. Immersing your body in warm water releases tension, removes toxins from the skin, and allows the joints and muscles to completely relax. Hot water opens your pores and makes your skin more absorbent, so whatever element you put in to your bath will be absorbed. Adding oils, herbs, and scents can be incredibly healing, relaxing, and moisturizing. Adding bubbles creates frivolity, fun, relaxation, and romance.
Bubble baths are very comforting. Do you remember soaking in the tub as a child? Making bubbles with Mr. Bubble bubble bath? Playing with rubber duckies and boats for hours while soaking away the dirt and wrinkling the skin on your fingers. Mr. Bubble smells so good! Coconut fruitiness! The smell is magical and will take you straight back to your childhood. So sweet and comforting. Order Mr. Bubble today for a blast from the past bath.
Almost any kind of soap can be used for a bubble bath. Bubble bath, body wash, shampoo, liquid dish detergent, bath bombs, and bubble bars make tons of bubbles. I have very sensitive skin and prefer Ivory or St. Ive’s Oatmeal and Shea Body Wash. Lush Cosmetics has some amazing bath products. Their bath bombs are really fun. You can make your own bath products too. Collecting fancy, extravagant bath soaps, salts, bubble baths, oils, and bath bombs are wonderful to have on hand when you need to unwind. Bath products are the perfect gift item too!
For a luxurious, bubblicious bubble bath, pour about ¼ cup of soap under running water in your tub. Swish your hand around to make even more bubbles.
Bubble baths should be taken in a clean, sweet- smelling bathroom. Plants, flowers, candles, luxurious bath products, and music will enhance that relaxing spa feeling. Put your phone, kindle, or iPad into an airtight plastic bag if you will be using them in your bath. A waterproof pillow or folded towel will relax your head and neck. Use a bath tray or foot stool to hold drinks, snacks, beauty treatments,and books.
For a romantic bubble bath, choose vanilla, sandalwood, rose, or jasmine scented products. Add rose petals to the bath. Bathe in candlelight with soft music in the background. Drink champagne and nibble on chocolate dipped fruit, cheese, and crackers. Fill a tray with massage oils, body paint, sponges, and fluffy towels. Play, caress, kiss, and cuddle.
Treat health and skin problems with a healing bubble bath. Choose a bath product that corresponds with the recommended essential scent or make your own bath salts. Combine 3 cups Epsom salts, 1 cup of baking soda, and 40 drops of essential oil and store in an airtight jar. Add one cup to your water and soak for 20 to 40 minutes. Drink herbal tea. Treat problematic sinuses with a warm sinus pack. The Bed Buddy Deep Soothing Sinus Pack is clears your sinuses and smooths headaches. weating relieves cold, flu, and hangover symptoms by ridding the body of toxins. A half cup of baking soda in the bath is a miracle cure for itchy skin.
Make it a spa day with a beauty bath, bubbles are optional. Exfoliate your whole body by rubbing it all over with sea salt before immersing yourself into a moisturizing honey and milk bath. Use Dr. Teals Foaming Bath or make your own by adding one cup of boiling water to 1 cup of honey and mixing until dissolved. Then add 2 cups of milk and stir. Run bath and add 3 tablespoons baking soda and 1/2 cup of sea salts to the running water. Then add honey mixture. Soak. Apply a face mask of your choice and place two cucumber slices on your eyes to reduce swelling and puffiness. Listen to some relaxing music. Rinse face. Trim or file your nails. Buff your feet. Rinse off the honey and milk mixture before getting out the the tub for smooth, silky skin. Sip chilled juice or a smoothie while bathing.
Take a restful bath to prepare for a good night’s sleep. Draw a warm bath – as warm as you can stand it. Add a cup of Epsom Salts, a few drops of lavender essential oils, a couple tablespoons of coconut oil, and a cup of baking soda. Turn on some soothing music, and soak for at least 20 minutes. The salt and warmth will pull toxins out through your pores, and the lavender oil and Epsom salts will relax your muscles, soothe pain, and help boost magnesium levels. Magnesium is necessary for healthy sleeping. Baking soda makes skin smoother and soothes itching. It also helps exfoliate the skin. Coconut oil is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and will moisturize your whole body! Massage your feet and legs and arms. Drink some warm milk or herbal tea. Listen to some relaxing music. Gently towel yourself dry. Do a few gentle stretches. Slip into a silky nightgown and slide into the sheets for a deep, relaxing sleep.
Escape into a frothy, sweet-smelling bubble bath to rejuvenate, relax, or energize. Surround yourself with the things you love – scented candles, fresh flowers, a bottle of wine, a margarita, a latte, snacks, treats, chocolates, Netflix, an audiobook, a novel, newspapers, magazines, your journal, music. Enjoy.
Soaking in a hot tub of water is inexpensive. It is healthy. It can revive you and make you feel completely refreshed. Happiness is a long, hot, wet bubble bath!
