One of my guilty pleasures that I have turned into a weekly ritual…Bubble Baths! Nothing more relaxing than sitting in a tub full of heavenly, bubbly warmth to relax you mind, body, and soul. Bubble baths are great to relieve stress, soothe achy muscles and joints, and with a hydrating bubble bath, you can give your skin a moisturizing treatment. Pick up a bottle of your favorite bubble bath product (or make your own; below is a great easy to do bubble bath recipe) and fill your tub with very warm water tonight to celebrate Bubble Bath Day! Create a calming spa atmosphere with background music, candles, and a towel to cushion your neck. Enjoy!
About Bubble Bath Day:
Today is Bubble Bath Day! People have been enjoying warm baths for thousands of years. In Ancient Rome, bathing at a public facility was part of the daily routine for most citizens. A trip to the Roman baths might include a dip in the caldarium (hot tub), a brief break in the laconicum (sauna), and a refreshing swim in the frigidarium (cold pool). Up until the late 1940s, the average American bathed once a week for personal hygiene. Today, a daily shower is standard, but it’s important to indulge in a luxurious soak every once in a while. A bubble bath can help open up your pores, cleanse your skin, and relax muscles.
