Sybaritic pleasures. Hot water. Bubbles or not. Music or silence. I’d love a fireplace in mine; how about you? Whirlpool? Salt? Scrub? Reading? Or just the bliss of lying back and not thinking about anything at all?
I adore baths. I always have. I ground in water. It’s funny, though – I’ve noticed that folks are rarely ambivalent on the subject. They either love ’em or hate ’em. My best friend, for example, prefers a fast shower – and by fast, I mean under ten minutes.
Sheesh. I can hardly wash my hair that fast.
My favorite bath preparation is three parts epsom salts and one part baking soda, to which I add 7 drops of lavender essential oil, 3 drops of Ylang-Ylang, and 3 drops of bergamot essential oil. I even found a drain stopper for the upper drain in my tub, so the top part of my body doesn’t freeze while I stew.
What about you, Dear Reader? What’s your favorite bath preparation?
