A Relaxing Bath - National Bubble Bath Day

Thursday 8th January is National Bubble Bath Day! There is nothing I enjoy more than a long soak in the tub. I've found it to be so relaxing and it aids my sleeping pattern, so you should take the time to unwind this evening.


 
For me it's about the added extras that really help you create a relaxing atmosphere, good bath products, candles, good quality towels and a cosy bath robe.

I like to use bath products which are therapeutic, lavender scented bath oils are amazing and if you are are aching you should try Epsom salts to relax your muscles. I do enjoy a bath bomb as well, Lush has got you covered in this area.

My favourite bath bombs have to be the Butterballs, it's one of the most plain looking, but the cocoa butter works wonders on my dry skin. I've heard great things about the Comforter Bubble Bar so I'll be picking that one up next time I'm in the Chester Lush.

A Yankee candle has to be lit every time I want to take a long bath, my current favourite is Soft Blanket, it's a comforting vanilla, powdery scent.
Mobile phones created a false light source that makes your body think you are still active and in good light. So ditch the technology, dim the lights and use candles for a good nights sleep.

I also stick my towel and dressing gown on the radiator to warm while I'm soaking in the tub. I choose a high quality, cosy bathrobe, so the experience feels more spa like. I really want a personalised bathrobe with my initials on it, as a touch of luxury, Towel Soft do some really affordable ones - would make a nice Valentine's present actually!

I also use body lotions after the bath to lock in the moisture, Dream Cream by Lush is one of my all time favourite moisturiser, it made it into my 14 Beauty Favourites for 2014. It's just a simple, no frills product that does what it says on the tin.



After this, I'm normally totally relaxed and I can easily drift of to sleep with ease. I'm really looking forward to my bubble bath this evening. I have some bath bombs from Lush's Boxing Day Sale, I think I might try Candy Mountain.

What products do you like to use for a relaxing bath?
