    Default ease into a bubble bath

    Does "ease into" here mean "to become familiar with something"?

    gu86)Like the smell of freshly cut grass or the taste of hot chocolate, a bubble bath is one of the greatest sensory pleasures in life. As most of us are so busy, however, we rarely take the time to ease into a bubble bath in the evening...

    No How on earth did you come by that idea? The person is talking about lowering him/herself gently into a bath.

    The translation goes "staying easy(comfortable) taking a bubble bath", which seems to be a made-up one and there's a dictionary definition like this. I couldn't find your definition anywhere.
    'ease into'
    ease back into somethingto gradually become familiar again with something you have not done for some
