Make Your Own Special Bubble Bath

Indulge yourself in a little bubble therapy at least twice a week to make you feel totally pampered and self indulgent.

Being engulfed in a bed of creamy bubbles can be as luxurious as being wrapped in a mink coat.

Sadly the bubbles eventually do die down, but not until they have softened your skin and enhanced your mood.

If you would like to try making your own bubble baths for this most feminine ritual, you will find a bounty of bubble bath recipes just below to choose from.

Your choices range from old fashioned unscented bubble bath to wonderfully scented bubble baths.

Try lavender bubble bath to relax for sleep or the Jasmine or Rose for a brief return to enjoy a little Victorian splendor. The mint bubble bath will refresh and cool you during summer's heat.

Gentle safe bubble bath makes the perfect girl gift

Once you have mastered a few recipes, you may be tempted to take the next step and make fragrant bubble baths up for friends and family as gifts.

Many of us are introduced to bath products by way of bubble bath.

At that time the rule of less is more goes down the drain and we manage to get at least 2 baths no matter how large the bottle!

This is a simple and easy recipe for old fashioned bubble bath that has been handed down to next generations by many a grandmother.

Old Fashioned Bubble Bath Recipe

This Is A One Bath Recipe

  • 1 egg white

Making Your Own

Packaging Is Half The Fun

Making the bubble bath is the first part of the fun, and packaging is the next.

Using plastic or glass bottles, large for one person, or use small bottles from a craft supply store and you can package up your bubble bath to be used as bridal or baby shower favors.

This alone can be a huge saving in the cost of putting on a shower.

Choose about a two to three ounce bottle, and then decorate to match your shower theme. Have fun, and enjoy bubbles.
