A bubble bath is no good without the bubbles, I’m sure you had figured that out already. When adding bubbles make sure you do this right at the beginning, when you start filling your tub, this will help to create the right amount of bubbles. Too many and they end up all over your floor and too little? ...well there really isn’t much point!
Pick a scented bath oil to add to your bath. Floral scents such as lavender, jasmine and rose are all linked with relaxation and add to your state of relaxation. Sprinkle your oil into the tub when it is around half full, this will help it disperse evenly throughout the water.

Candles give off a lovely warm light which helps you relax and enjoy some quiet time in the tub. Those bright lights that are typically found in a bathroom, will simply tell your body that it’s not time to relax!
4. Not too hot. Not too cold
Getting the temperature right is a must for the perfect bath. A warm bath will help you relax, but a hot bath will make you feel like you are boiling alive and a cold bath will give you goose bumps. The ideal water temperature for a warm bath is said to be 92 degrees Fahrenheit.

Relaxing music is another simple way to help you wind down. A nice chill-out soundtrack will really help to soothe your mood and let your mind drift.
