During the cold winter months, the creature comfort of a warm bubble bath sounds heavenly. The truth is, a good bubble bath is a great treat anytime of the year – especially at the end of a long day.
People have been taking foam baths since the invention of soap flakes, but they became a common practice for bathing children in the 1960s. A long soak in warm water, especially with a bubble bath made with essential oils can relax your body and your mind. Warm water, steam and essential oils can help eliminate stress, aid sleep and even relieve cold-related symptoms like a stuffy nose.
Unfortunately a lot of store-bought bubble baths contain a long list of ingredients you can’t pronounce.
When you make your own bubble bath, you know exactly what’s in it. Our recipe for sugar bubble bath soap is easy and fun to make, produces a ton of bubbles, and when scented with a soothing essential oil, brings calming relief to all your senses.
You can replace the drops of lavender with any essential oil. Some of our favorites for an aromatherapy bath include eucalyptus, lemon, chamomile, peppermint and Frankincense. Perfect for moms AND kids, homemade bubble bath makes a great gift as well.
