Heavenly Bubble Bath Recipes

Heavenly Bubble Bath Recipes

We all have our own unique way of unwinding, taking time out or knowing how to pamper ourselves. With the concept of melting away our tensions or even just de-stressing to alleviate anxiety or tension, the sheer thought of such a feeling will put a smile on everyone’s face coupled with a “aww” as our shoulders fall back and we imagine this feeling of bliss. The problem is we don’t always allocate the time for these very necessary, tranquil moments of amazing bliss!

Make your soul smile with life’s simple pleasures

With the weather starting to cool a steamy bath is the ultimate relaxing ritual.

Keep in mind a good soak has numerous health benefits including relaxing achy muscles, aiding sleep, relaxes the mind to sharpen clarity and reduces stress.

Prep Time for your bath…First and foremost change out of your clothes and prepare.

  1. SLIP INTO SOMETHING MORE COMFORTABLE

Put on your softest and favourite robe with your fluffy comfy slippers. Not only will this let the rest of the household know that you have put on your ‘time-out attire’ but your body will trigger a shift in your state of mind as you get ready to treat and nurture yourself.

  1. SOUND

Set up some relaxing music or a meditation for your time out. Choose whatever may feel appropriate for you at the time. Make sure you have at least 40 mins of material to listen to without having to do anything.

  1. LIGHTING

A personal favourite of mine is to use real candles. Always remember to keep them at your feet and not around your hair or head just in case of fire. The main aim here is to create a soft ambient lighting which can be just as effective with battery operated candles also. If these items are not handy just dim the light or have them turned off completely.

  1. BUBBLES & INGREDIENTS

Use a mild body wash to create your bubbles. Add this into the running bath water with all your chosen ingredients from your chosen recipes below, except the essential Oils (unless you have sensitive skin mix your oils you’re your body wash). There are no rules for bubbles, have as many or as little as you feel comfortable. 

  1. ESSENTIAL OILS

After your bath has filled add your essential oils to the water and use your hand to swirl the ingredients around in the water. A basic rule to follow for adding essential oils to a bath is:

Adults should use 8 drops of essential oil per bath unless *pregnant we do not recommend to follow these recipes.

Kids 4-12 years old and elderly use 4 drops of essential oils only. 

  1. ADD YOU!! “enjoy”
