Bubble Baths ....Pamper Your Body And Soul


Indulge yourself and make your own bubble bath.....there is not a better way to treat yourself and take care of your body and soul. Have your hubby take the kids for a bit, or wait until your little ones are fast asleep.

Try creating your own bubble bath...supplies are easy to find and you can create a bubble bath suited exactly to your personal tastes and needs. One of the benefits of making your own bubble bath is that you know exactly what is in it, and you know all of the ingredients are fresh and natural.

An important ingredient in bubble bath is essential oil. Essential oils add the scent to your bubble bath. Use these sparingly, as you only need to use several drops to get a pleasant effect. Many essential oils should not be ingested orally, so be sure to read the directions. There are also some essential oils such as marjoram that should never be used by pregnant women. You can research any essential oil at the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy www.naha.org. Also look in aromatherapy books and ask questions at the health food store when buying essential oils.

Some essential oils are known to be relaxing and soothing. The most popular include lavender, sandalwood, marjoram, frankincense, myrrh, rosewood and chamomile. These essential oils will calm you down, relax you and help you go to sleep.

Other essential oils will uplift and energize you. Peppermint, spearmint, eucalyptus and lemon oil are all oils that will brighten your day and are good to use during the day. Eucalyptus oil is especially good if you have a cold because it will break up your cold’s congestion.

To soften your skin, consider adding either coconut or almond oil to your bubble bath concoctions. Coconut oil has a wonderful nutty and floral fragrance to it. Almond oil is virtually unscented. Adding a half a cup of either almond oil or coconut oil to your bubble bath will soften your skin tremendously. This is a great addition for your bubble baths for the winter months.

Here are some bubble bath recipes that will lift your spirits and treat your body!
