National Bathtub Day
Every year on the 7th of October we celebrate National Bathtub Day, and together with other national days where the bathtub takes a big part, like National Bubble Bath Day, these days are a great opportunity to just relax in the tub and forget about your troubles for a little while.
We have been thinking about some tips on how to make the most of your bathtub, whether you’re enjoying a solo bath or sharing it with someone special.
Tips for National Bathtub Day
Add some bubbles
For a luxurious bath, add some bubble bath, bath salts, or oil to your tub while the water is running. This will help create a relaxing environment and make your skin feel soft and silky.
Get the temperature just right
Not too hot and not too cold – the perfect bathtub temperature is around 104 degrees Fahrenheit. This temperature will help your muscles relax without making you feel drowsy.
Add some aromatherapy
To really set the mood, add some lavender or chamomile essential oils to your bath. These scents are known for their relaxing properties and will help you unwind.
Light some candles
Candles are the perfect way to create a relaxing ambiance. Choose unscented candles so they don’t compete with aromatherapy.
Play some soothing music
Create a playlist of your favorite calming songs or nature sounds to help you relax.
Take a book
Nothing says relaxation like soaking in the tub with a good book. Make sure to choose one that won’t get ruined if it gets wet. Isn’t it interesting that there is also a National Read in the Bathtub Day? Reading a book in a bath is for some the ultimate way of relaxation.
