A luxurious bath can be a romantic and intimate experience, especially if you choose to light candles, play soft music, and add bubble bath or essential oils to the water. It can be a great way to set the mood and bond with your loved one. Create a romantic or even sexy atmosphere by taking a hot bath together or pamper your partner with a soak to help them relax after a stressful day at work.
- Choose the right temperature: Fill the bathtub with warm water, making sure to not make it too hot. A good temperature for a bath is around 37-40°C (98-104°F). If you have a thermometer, use it to check the temperature of the water. If not, simply test it with your wrist or elbow to make sure it's not too hot.
- Add bubble bath or bath salts: If you like, you can add bubble bath, bath salts, or essential oils to the water to enhance the sensory experience and create a relaxing atmosphere. Simply pour a capful or two under the running water, and stir the water to distribute the bubbles or salts evenly. You could add some fresh rose petals as well to enhance the romance.
- Adjust the water level: Once you've added the bubble bath or bath salts, adjust the water level so that it covers your body when you're lying in the tub. Don't fill it too high, as this can make it difficult to get in and out of the tub, and can also make the water too hot.
- Adjust the lighting: To create a romantic and sexy atmosphere, adjust the lighting in the bathroom to your liking. Turn off the overhead lights and light a lot of candles instead.

- Add a touch of luxury: Select a good quality champagne or sparkling wine and make sure to chill it beforehand. Place a small table or tray near the bathtub for the champagne glasses and bottle within reach for both you and your loved one. You can also cut some fresh fruit and serve some chocolate. Keep in mind that adding alcohol to a bath can be dehydrating, so it's important to drink plenty of water before and after the soak.
