Luscious Bath Bombs and Fizzies

Bath Bombs

Bath bombs can be used for therapeutic purposes because they can contain essential oils which give various benefits.

Bath bombs usually contain essential oils. Some contain other additives like sea salt for added cleansing effect. Due to the nature of the additives used in creating these fancy little balls, bath bombs are commonly used for therapeutic purposes. The following are some essential oils commonly used in making bath bombs and their effects:

§ Lavender oil to help bathers relax, calm down or get rid of stress.

§ Sweet almond oil or sunflower oil to help moisturize the skin.

§ Avocado oil or wheat germ oil to heal and sooth damaged skin.

Bath fizzies or bath bombs can serve as inexpensive gifts for people who need to be pampered, or who need a calming or invigorating soak. They can also be used to make bath time fun for kids because the bath bombs would swirl, twirl and spin around in the bath tub while releasing that fizzing sound and its skin softening oils.

Yes, bath bombs can be used even by kids because they contain essential oils that can rejuvenate the skin and leave it feeling soft. In fact, it might even be better for them since most bath salts or bubble baths in the market contain synthetic oils and chemicals that do nothing to keep their young skin healthy.  Shop here for our bath bombs and fizzies
