Give Yourself a Spa Experience in Your Bathroom

Whether the reason is time, energy, or expense, a spa day just isn’t always practical. However, that doesn’t mean you have to skip the indulgence altogether. With the right atmosphere, you can create a spa-like environment just about anywhere, even in your bathroom. 

With a couple of simple steps, you can transform your bathroom experience and trick yourself into believing you’ve stepped into your favorite spa. 

Step 1: Prepare Your Space

So, we actually hate this step, too. But! It is so much easier to relax when our space is clean and tidy. Create an environment where you won’t be distracted by things you need to put away or a mess you need to clean. 

Then, when it’s time to settle in, light a candle and soak. You can clear your mind, just like you cleared your countertops!

Step 2: Treat Your Senses

It’s incredible how the little things genuinely elevate an experience. When setting up your spa experience, think about all of your senses and how you can give them a treat. Give yourself a sensory checklist to ensure you feel great at your home spa. What sounds or music could your ears enjoy? Do your eyes prefer dim candlelight? Pick the perfect scent for your nose, and make sure you keep your muscles relaxed with a bath pillow

Step 3: Add the Extra Touches

Maybe it’s as simple as adding some fruit to a glass of water, adding a tray to your tub, grabbing the book you’ve been dying to read, or even spending your “spa” time watching your favorite show while soaking (safely, of course!).

Find whatever your experience needs to make it perfect for you. 

Step 4: Line up the Products

It’s finally time to enjoy all of the special items you get in your Bubbles and Books box! So grab the bath bombs, bubble bars, lotions, face masks, hair masks, and other special items that you can’t wait to enjoy. Make sure everything you could even consider wanting is within arm’s reach, so you don’t have to get out of the tub for anything. 

Step 5: Do Not Disturb

If you’re anything like us, the real draw of the spa is the guarantee that you won’t be bothered by the demands of the outside world. Let everyone know you’ll be with them when you’re refreshed and revitalized.

It’s time to take care of yourself, and sometimes, that needs to be the priority. 

Best Of Vendors

Emmie Moe’s

While we at Bubbles and Books love all of our vendors, we admit to having a special place in our hearts for Emmie Moe’s, makers of the famed moisture melts, as well as other favorites, like the spring shower steamers, and the glorious whipped lotions and soaps!

We love the pride and care our handmade sellers put into their products, ensuring that each item that ends up in your box has been carefully cultivated to ensure you have the best possible experience. We want you to get to know our beloved makers, so you can be as inspired by their work as we are!

First things first, what kind of books do you like? 

I like to read just about anything but it really depends on my mood.  My guilty pleasure is paranormal romance.

What inspired you to start Emmie Moe’s? 

We moved from the suburbs to a more rural setting and my daughter and I wanted to start a business doing something that would be fun and where we could eventually use things we grow in the products (lavender, rose petals, lemon balm etc.) 

What product are you the most proud of? 

I would say I’m equally proud of our cold process soap and our moisture melts.

Have you had any terrible first attempts at creating a product that ended up being great in the long run? 

Moisture melts were actually born from the failings of bath bombs.  I had made bath bombs that would just not stay together so I added some moisturizing oils and butters in the hopes of salvaging the bath bombs into a new, more moisturizing product. 

What are your favorite scent combinations? 

Lavender is my absolute favorite and I love pairing it with citrus scents like lemon or grapefruit.

Are there any special tips about using your products that we should know?

No special tips….simple and enjoyable is definitely the goal. We are always looking for suggestions and ways to improve our products or get new ideas so never hesitate to reach out.  

Are there any products still in the development stage that we can look forward to? 

Yes, we’re working to perfect a couple of different new products that we are hoping will be coming in a future box.
