What are bath bombs for? Simply put, bath bombs provide a spa-like experience in the comfort of your own home.
Bath bombs are most often made from baking soda, citric acid, colorant, fragrance, and natural oils. When added to your bathtub, the baking soda and citric acid undergo a chemical reaction, which causes it to fizz and release its fragrance, color, and oils.
The fragrance (such as lavender, rose, or oatmeal) fills the room, providing a relaxing and pleasant aroma as you enjoy your bath time. The colorant turns your bathwater into whatever color the bath bomb contained, allowing you to enjoy red, blue, green, or a myriad of other beautiful colors.
Perhaps the most important ingredients of any bath bomb, however, are the oils and butters. While the colors and fragrance can add to your bath time pleasure, these ingredients have a more tangible benefit. Many bath bombs include shea butter, mango butter, coconut oil, sunflower oil, or a mixture of the above. These oils and butters help to nourish and moisturize your skin, giving it a healthy shine and a silky-smooth texture. Other benefits of these natural ingredients include smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines, reducing the appearance of scars, and helping to combat eczema and dermatitis.
What are bath bombs for? They are there to help people from many walks of life. Here are just a few of the types of people that may enjoy a bath bomb bath:
- Those that work long and/or hard: After a hard day’s work, there is nothing like relaxing in a nice, warm bath to let the cares of the day slip from your mind. Bored of the everyday run-of-the-mill bath, they enjoy spicing things up with some bath bombs to enhance their relaxation time.
- Those who are stressed out: Work isn’t the only thing that can stress people out. Whether it be financial problems, relationship troubles, or a family crisis, there are sometimes when you just need to get away from it all. Bath bombs and a hot bath provide that much-needed escape.
- Those who like to pamper themselves: Want to pamper yourself? There’s no better way to do it than by creating an at-home spa. Bath bombs are able to provide a part of this experience with their use of aromatherapy and the skin-softening oils and butters they provide.
In summary, bath bombs provide a pleasing aroma, beautiful colors, and butters and oils which can really help your skin. If you’ve been holding out on trying a bath bomb until now, give it a try. You won’t regret it.
