Like many other people I am a big fan of the bubble bath. Everything from the warm steamy water and the aroma of the bubble bath, through to the beautiful look of the bath against the slate grey tiles in the bathroom. I searched for a Cast Iron Baths Ireland company to purchase my beautiful bath from and I haven’t looked back since. There really isn’t anything about the bath time experience that I do not like – well perhaps one thing, when my cat decides to sit on the end of the bath and stare at me. I think he like my choice from the Cast Iron Baths Ireland company as much as I do.
It got me thinking about how to create the perfect bath. So here are my top three tips for making the most of the bubbles.
- For me the number one thing that adds to the relaxation of a bath is that the bath room is a clutter free, noise free and distraction free environment. So, before I even think about running the bath I make sure that the bathroom is tidy, remove anything that is lying round the edge of the bath such as flannels and empty bottles of bubble bath or shampoo. I also make sure that my mobile is switched to silent so that I am not forced to jump out of the bath to answer a call, only to find out it is a PPI cold caller!
- Deciding what sort of bath, I want to take is up there in second place. No obviously all baths are essentially the same with hot water and some sort of bath product added to the running water. What I mean is what is the aim of the bath – to relax, to ease aching muscles or perhaps as part of a beauty regime before going out for an evening. This often determines the product that I put in the bath. For example, if I want to relax after a long day at work I would more often than not add some sort of bath fizz or relaxing bubble bath that creates plenty of bubbles. To soothe aching muscles or after a visit to the gym or yoga class I would add some Epsom salts or similar to the water to help with circulation and muscle recovery. Finally, if the bath is part of a wider beauty regime ready for a night out I would pick something slightly more indulgent like a bath milk or highly moisturising bath oil.
- Take some time out for yourself – one of the key benefits of taking a bath is that you get to take some time out for yourself. This means that if you want to light some candles, indulge with a glass of wine and perhaps read a book it is entirely up to you. Answering your work emails is not an option.
