The Bathorium bath soaks you need for Valentine's!
Is there really anything better than soaking in the tub in an extravagant array of bubbles with that special someone? If you have the luxury of access to a large tub grab your spouse and share a romantic evening together! This Valentine’s Day why not create a romantic and relaxing party for two! Bathorium creates our favourite line of bath products that enhance bath time like never before. Here's why we love bubble baths with Bathorium and how you can create your own Social Stepmom approved bubble bath in the comfort of your own home!
The power of the bath
Creating new traditions and rituals are good for the soul and also good for your relationship! We are certain that at least once in your adult life all of you stepmoms have experienced the relaxation that comes from an invigorating and therapeutic bubble bath. Check in with your partner, have they?
It's no secret that at Social Stepmom we believe in taking some time to connect with your partner, there's no better time than to hop into the bath and rejuvenate your body and mind with the person you love! We have done the really tough research (ok maybe not so tough) on creating the perfect bath. Here's a list of products that we absolutely love and recommend you use in your next, or first, bubble bath with your partner!
Set the scene
You have now convinced your partner to join you in the bath! Congratulations, was it harder or easier than you thought? Now we can get to the important part: setting the scene.
Your life is hectic and super busy, this time is all about you so put in a little extra effort to make it magical! Hopping in the tub sounds great until you get into the bathroom and find a dirty tub, old razer, and half empty bottles of shampoo lying around. Instant mood killer for sure. Keep the tub clean, remove all your products from around the ledge, and tuck away anything that's purpose is for 'function' and not 'FUN'!
I’m not saying you need to take hours to scrub your tub, but take some time to create a romantic setting. Remove all products from the tub such as bottles, loufas, razors, soap, anything that is used for function and not for fun!
A bath night with your spouse is an affordable luxury, make sure you keep it luxurious and add a little decor! Keep it as simple as you like and use items you already have at home.
Grab a few scented candles and place them around the bathroom and around the tub! Just remember to keep them in safe areas. Find your most plush and soft towels and lay them out for easy access. Grab a bouquet of roses (seriously, you can get this at the gas station if a florist isn't in the budget), pop off each petal, throw them on the floor as well as in the water. Pick up your favourite bottle of wine or beer if your spouse prefers. If we are really going for it, have some chocolate covered strawberries out and ready.
The possibilities are endless!
Start the bath
A simple step but when filling the bath with water there are two things you need to remember:
- Fill the tub up with less water than you normally would. With two bodies in the water, it will displace more... science right?
- Run the water a little bit warmer than normal. It may take you and your spouse some time before you hop in so the temperature will be ready by the time you get in!
