Bubble baths used to be one of my indulgences. Before having kids, I would take a book into the bath and soak away for a while. With kids, I don’t often get to do this. Within five minutes, someone will need something, even if it’s just to come in and sit in the same room. However, I try to do little things for myself. With all of the things that I am, I don’t want to forget that I am me. I occassionally attempt having a bubble bath, even if only for a few minutes.
Last Winter, I traded some items with a fantastically talented unschooling mama at Mama Take Me Away. I haven’t tried all of her products, but I give her solid bubble bath a solid two thumbs up. While chemically speaking, her bubble bath is a solid, I would refer to it as powdered bubble bath. The first time I used it, it didn’t seem to be making very many bubbles at first, so I ended up pouring in half of a tub. I learned my lesson that day. The bubble bath continues making bubbles until the water stops pouring in. A half tub gave a mountainous pile of bubbles that I had to wade through in order to get in the tub. Since then, I have just used a small sprinkling and had more than enough bubbles.
I remember using a box of powedered Mr. Bubble bubble bath as a kid. There is no comparison. The powder scratched and frankly, it didn’t smell very good (to be fair, I’m certain it was a very old box of bubble bath, but I remember it wasn’t very enjoyable). The solid bubble bath form Mama Take Me Away leaves a wonderful silky feeling on my skin. The scents are fabulous. I received choclate orange, almond, and pomegranate in our trade. I expected to prefer them in that order. I love chocolate and orange together and the almond was supposed to be for my husband. She threw in the pomegranate for an additional trade. I wasn’t certain what to think about the pomegranate until I received it and opened it. It smells so wonderful and is clearly my favorite of the three scents. I haven’t had the heart to use it yet, but I’ve opened the container and smelled it’s lovely aroma numerous times.
