Your Ultimate Guide to Bath Bombs

For some, it could be hard to believe that at the age of 30 I still hadn't used or played with a bath bomb. Others may associate with my main issue as to why: I had so many questions that honestly, I was too shy to ask about and couldn't be bothered by the ever so friendly Lush employees. Because in reality, where else would someone get a bath bomb? I always asked myself some questions about Bath bombs that I'll help answer today thanks to Fresh Bombs, we've partnered up to bring you the Ultimate Guide to Bath Bombs!

Ingredients may include: 

  • citric acid – a weak organic acid

  • bicarbonate of soda –(known as baking soda)

  • powdered ingredients such as cornstarch and bath salts.

  • essential oils

  • carrier oils

  • coloring

  • water

 

Are Bath Bombs Soap? 

Bath Bombs are not usually made with any cleansing agents like soap. It is recommended to take a shower before soaking in the tub with your bath bomb. 

What do Bath bombs Do? 

Because bath bombs are made with essential oils, they may cause feelings of relaxation and serenity. They are also good for your skin. Soaking in a tub with a bath bomb will make your skin feel soft, hydrated, and smell delicious.

How To Make A Bath Bomb at Home:

  1. Add ½ cup of citric acid, 1 cup of baking soda and ½ cup of cornstarch in a bowl
  2. Mix in food coloring, fragrance, essential oils, and other decorative elements
  3. Tightly pack the mixture into a container or cut it out with a cookie cutter.
  4. Keep the mixture in the fridge for 4–5 hours, or let it stand overnight

Are Bath Bombs Safe? 

General answer: Yes!
More complex answer: Please, always make sure to read the ingredients in your bath bomb. Some of these are made with active ingredients or coloring that may cause irritation on your skin, which is why I consider homemade bath bombs first. (They have the simplest ingredient list) If you are not sure if you will have an allergic reaction to a bath bomb, let one fizz beforehand in a sink and place the back of your hand in the water to make sure you don't get any allergic reactions. 

Which Bath Bombs are the best? 

I reviewed Fresh Bath Bombs to see how they worked out and I have to be candid, they were pretty yummy smelling (but don't eat them!) and they fizzed nicely. They were a very slow and "natural" feeling fizz and they did not have any surprises inside. The smell was mild, I wish they smelled stronger, but they are a great deal of 12 bombs, which I felt was a great value. If you are interested in getting Fresh Bombs Bath Fizzies, click here!
