Chocolate Bubble bathJuly 30, 2013
Mmmmm…yummy yummy, my friend
Do you know that chocolate's not only for munching, drinking or hoarding. For the person who adores chocolate, chocolate's also great for a bath! Adding chocolate to the bath brings benefits through its scent (relaxing and enjoyable) and through its softening effects (cocoa butter). Apparently, it's also an often used spa ingredient to rejuvenate skin cells and to moisturize the skin.
So, why not add a little chocolate to your next bath to give your skin a spa treat while releasing the aroma of chocolate and perhaps also your inner child... In this article, you have the chance to explore the delicious side of chocolate – as a bubble bath!
1 cup of unscented bubble bath (try to get as pure a bubble bath as possible – the fewer ingredients, the better)
1/3 cup of unsweetened soy milk (other kinds of milk can work too, such as rice milk, dairy milk, etc.; indeed, dairy milk has long been used as a bath enriching agent)
3 oz. (85g) of dark chocolate (baking chocolate is preferred) – dark chocolate tends to be asked for whenever you read this recipe because of its higher antioxidants and purity (less adulterated with sugar, etc.) than other chocolate products
Heat the soymilk, or other milk being used.
Chop the chocolate into small pieces. You can also use a cheese grater or food processor to speed this up. Smaller pieces are better. Add the pieces to the heated soy milk. Stir well over low heat until the chocolate is completely melted. Do not let it boil!
Allow the mixture to cool down.
Draw your bath water. Add the cup of unscented bubble bath directly to the bath.
An alternative to this is to mix the chocolate mixture with the bubble bath just prior to adding to the bath.You might like to try both methods to see which works best for your needs.
Pour the chocolate mixture into the bath under the running water.
Blend the chocolate solution and the bath water together. Stir your hand around in the bath to mix the water and chocolate mix together.
Prepare to get into the bath. Sit back, relax and enjoy!
If you feel that the chocolate bubble bath sticks to you, consider taking a shower following your chocolate bath to wash off all remaining chocolate. It shouldn't really be an issue though, as properly mixed, this whole mixture blends into the bath well and you should feel clean and silky soft after it.
Make sure to do this when you are relaxed and have a lot of time. This means while Friday night is a good time, Monday night-when you have school/work the next day-may not be.
To spice up the bath, you could add a 1/4 teaspoon of either cinnamon or ginger.
