The House of Coco travel team jet off around the world on a regular basis to explore far-flung destinations, and to stay at some seriously gorgeous hotels. More often that not each hotel bathroom has a major wow factor, usually with an ornate antique roll top bath or sunken Jacuzzi style tub, meaning that a dream bath awaits #TeamCoco after the unpacking has taken place. Occasionally the hotel bathtub will look out to sea, over a private infinity pool, or boast views of rolling hills and mountains.
These are a few of the things we can only dream of in our own bathrooms, but when you take a bath at home you should always treat yourself to a lovely bubble or two. In reality it can make all the difference between a 5-minute dash in the tub or a 1-hour relaxed bathing experience. One of the simplest pleasures in life has to be bubbles!
We have four favourites from the Radox collection that are sure to turn your bath time into ‘me time’.
The feeling of being in a rose garden in midsummer, surrounded by beautiful fragrant blooms. Nearby, the scents from calendula flowers release a golden perfume in the air. Offering a chance to soak up the warm, heavenly scent and float away into a different world or a different time.
These bubbles unfurl a soft blanket in the long grass and a chance to savour the warm breeze that carries the sweet scent of lavender. This gives a sense that fragrant stems are swaying around you, and in the distance the gentle chirping of cicadas are in the background. This bubble bath is all about relaxing.
Climb into your bath to luxurious coconut, the scent of a paradise far away. You can almost imagine being in a swaying hammock watching the ocean and feeling the breeze, where you’ll feel cocooned in bliss. Close your eyes and let your spirits soar high into the cloudless brilliant blue. This is definitely a super chilled bathing experience.
You can feel yourself heading into the land of nod. Drift away with the soothing scent of chamomile and jasmine, your mind floating skyward toward cotton-wool clouds. Prepare to ease into a calm, restful sleep from these warm and comforting bubbles.
