Treat Yourself to a Bubble Bath this Month

Welcome back to the Edlandria Blog! In today’s post, we’re excited to focus on a relaxing topic: bubble baths! Today we’ll be sharing two of our favorite bubble bath recipes for you to enjoy in your Alexandria, VA apartment.

Lavender Bubble Bath

In order to make this recipe, you’ll need one cup of castile soap, one-quarter cup of vegetable glycerin, and 20 to 30 drops of the essential oil of your choice (the recipe uses lavender as an example). Simply combine all ingredients and mix. Then carefully pour the bubble bath mixture into a glass bottle for storage. Use about one-quarter cup for each bath.

Honey & Vanilla Bubble Bath

The key to getting this bubble bath just right is the egg white. We know what you must be thinking: honey, eggs, vanilla — who’s cooking what? This recipe smells great, is simple to make, and is a great place to begin if it’s your first time making a bubble bath. Hello Glow shared a great recipe with these ingredients. All you’ll need is half a cup of light almond oil, a quarter cup of honey, half a cup of mild liquid or body soap, one egg white, and one tablespoon of vanilla extract. Combine the ingredients together and then pour a quarter to half of a cup under running water. Keep the rest in the refrigerator for your next soaking.

Here’s what Stephanie Gerber at Hello Glow had to say about this recipe:

“My first attempt at making bubble bath a couple of years ago was a total bomb. The secret is the egg white! It helps create bigger bubbles that last longer. But you still won’t get huge bubbles. Agitate the water to activate the soap and enjoy.”
