I do love a nice hot bubble bath but never take the time to enjoy them enough. Here is me taking a bath with Calgon Milk Bath and my new glittery shower cap. I think in my next bath I’ll use the Sleep Body Wash & Foam Bath or the Sleep Bath & Massage Oil from Bath & Body Works that my daughter gave me for Christmas last year. I think this is a great day to celebrate and enjoy.
*That first bath, bubbles rising up around us in a scent that would soon become associated with warmth, comfort, and safety. It started with the love of a mother’s hands, and in time we began to pamper ourselves. Rich bubbles, beautiful candles, quiet music, and a little time to ourselves have all been the hallmark of the bubble bath. Bubblebath Day reminds us of these little luxuries, and to take time out of our day to treat ourselves to a little special TLC.
History of Bubble Bath Day
Bubble Baths have been popular for as long as baths with surfactant based soap have been a thing. There are multiple practical uses for them, ranging from the unexpected to the curiously unthought of. Bubble baths have been renowned for their ability to soothe and relax, but this doesn’t actually address the more interesting reasons behind their popularity.
You see, bubbles have the ability to help remove and prevent the nasty ring that forms around your bath-tub, leaving you, and your tub, that much cleaner. Additionally, it can effectively preserve the modesty of one in a bath as the bubbles obscure vision. Additionally, the bubbles act as an insulator, preserving the heat of the bath and allowing you to luxuriate in it even longer.
Bubble baths in general, speaking of the substance one puts in ones bath to cause the bubbles, are often pleasantly scented, and many of them are combined with ingredients that serve to help moisturize the skin and relax the bather.
