I love bubble baths. I won’t lie, and they make me feel like a princess. Bubble baths are not about getting clean, they are strictly an indulgence. You soak in a bubble bath, you don’t scrub.

First step, decide why you want a bath. Is it to relieve aches and pains or is it to relax?

Light some candles.

Choose some music. If I am working out pain, I like world music. If relaxation is in order, either nature sounds or classical.

The next important decision is what beverage to drink. Pain=mineral water.

 Relaxation is herbal tea all the way.

I fill up the tub with warm water. If I am alleviating pain, I add Epsom salts

and lavender oil.

If its to relax, I use Burt’s Bees bubble bath. I soak until the water is no longer tolerable.

To finish up, I use body lotion

and wrap myself in my warm, fuzzy robe.

Pure bliss.

Depeche Mode has been on of my favorite bands, going all the way back to 1983. I was listening to KCGL in Salt Lake City( It was a very special time in my life, and it was when I began to completely identify with music. It was because of this station that I started thinking of my life as a playlist (I swear High Fidelity has some elements of me).
