For most people, it’s the thought of soaking in a hot, sweet-smelling bubble bath at home that keeps them going, and who can blame them? The hot water, relaxing scents, and floating bubbles are great for tension relief, making you feel lighter than when you entered the tub.
Bubble baths have been a thing since the 1900s when soap flakes were marketed instead of soap bars because of how much bubbles they produced. They have been proven to help you de-stress, unwind, and relax.
With so many bubble bath products to choose from, why not go for one that’s cruelty-free, natural, and made with non-toxic chemicals? This seems like the best option, especially for sensitive skin, as you wouldn’t want to have an allergic reaction to sulphates while trying to de-stress. Luckily, Bower Collective has bubble bath products with this exact description.
Here’s what you should know about bubble baths.
How do Bubble Baths Work?
Usually, running a bath creates a natural foam layer, which dissolves almost immediately as they form. To make this foam last longer, you need bath bombs or bubble bath liquids. Bubble bath products contain surfactants that reduce the surface layer tension between water molecules and the bubbles. This way, the bubbles last longer. This layer of bubbles also acts as insulation, trapping the heat in the bath water and keeping it warm for longer.
Benefits of a Bubble Bath
Indulging in a bubble bath opens you up to many holistic benefits, which have been discussed below.
Getting clean is the major reason people shower or take baths. For this reason, taking a bubble bath will cleanse and detoxify your skin of impurities and dead skin cells. Moreover, heated bubble baths open the skin’s pores, allowing for effective cleansing.
Bubble bath products with essential oils like lavender or geranium nurture, nourish, and hydrate the skin, reducing dryness and improving its overall appearance.
Medical practitioners often prescribe hot baths to soothe sore muscles and alleviate pain. Hence, submerging in a sweet-smelling hot bubble bath can dilate the blood vessels, which can improve circulation and relieve pain.
Hot bubble baths perform the same function as saunas. Research shows that the sweat produced from a bubble bath is equivalent to that of walking, and thus, bubble baths can help you burn calories and lose weight.
Psychological and Emotional Benefits
Reduces Negative Emotions
Bubble baths, whether hot or cold, tend to relieve the symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress, and anger. By soaking in a bubble bath, you catalyse the production of serotonin and melt the body’s tension. This is why bubble baths with soft fragrances like lavender are recommended for issues related to stress, mood swings, or anger.
A warm bubble bath relieves muscular tension, helping the body’s melatonin production and triggering sleep. You’re more likely to get a good night’s rest with a bubble bath than without it.
Bubble baths have immense benefits that transcend physical, emotional, and psychological health. They can be enjoyed by all age groups, from kids to adults, and it’s always best to go for products that are void of harmful ingredients.
