WHAT IS A BATH BOMB?
Our bath bombs are spheres that fizzle and dissolve rapidly when tossed into your bath water. Not only do they add a bit of fun to your bath but ours are made with variety of all-natural ingredients, designed to soothe, detox and help you relax.
WHAT MAKES BATH BOMBS DIFFERENT FROM BATH SALTS AND BUBBLE BATH?
Bath bombs are made with baking soda or sodium bicarbonate, which provides a naturally high alkaline substance with a reputation for helping to remove toxins. Baking soda's natural sodium content and alkalinity give the bathwater a silky feel and baking soda can help with a number of common health issues. The plant oils and baking soda soothes and adds moisture to the skin. Along with the pleasant scent and essential oils, bath bombs can also create an aromatherapeutic effect.
Bubble Bath is made with soap for cleansing the surface of the skin to help loosen dirt and oil. They make bubbles for a short time and dissolve while softening the water.
Bath Salts are high in minerals and also work to help remove toxins, depending on what bath salts you are using. Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) soothe tired muscles by relieving the lactic acid build-up caused from muscle exertion and are therefore recommended for people with back pain, arthritis, muscle tension or spasms, and minor work and sports injuries. Pink Himalayan and sea salts help draw out toxins, deep cleanse the skin, and cleanse the body energetically.
HOW DO YOU MAKE THEM?
We mix together citric acid and baking soda, then add a blend of essential oils, plant oils and a bit of distilled water to help it stick together.
ARE THE BATH BOMBS QUITE FRAGRANT?
Yes. If you are sensitive to scent, bath bombs might not be a good choice for you.
WHAT MAKES THEM FIZZ AND DISSOLVE?
The reaction between baking soda and citric acid is responsible for the fizzing action. When the bomb touches water, the sodium bicarbonate in it reacts with the citric acid to release carbon dioxide gas. The bath bomb starts to break apart as this happens, releasing with it the pigments, essential oils, and skin-conditioning plant oils.
HOW LONG CAN I KEEP A BATH BOMB BEFORE USING?
Store your bath bombs in the bag it is in- in a cool dark place. This helps to protect the bath bomb from moisture and keeps it from drying out or losing scent. We always recommend using our bath bombs sooner rather than later.
CAN YOU CUT THEM IN HALF TO USE IT TWICE?
You can try this, but from our experience they may break and crumble. The pieces will then dissolve faster than a whole bath bomb. Our bath bombs are designed for single use. To get the full benefits we do recommend using the entire bomb in your bath. If you choose to take it out of the water half way through and keep it for later it might still fizz the next time you use it, but it won't be as effective.
ARE THE INGREDIENTS SAFE TO GO DOWN THE DRAIN?
Yes! Our bath bombs are made with only the best ingredients that are good for you and our Earth.
ARE BATH BOMBS GLUTEN FREE?
ARE BATH BOMBS SAFE FOR KIDS?
Our bath bombs are safe to use for children ages 2 and over.
DO BATH BOMBS IRRITATE YOUR SKIN?
Our bath bombs should not irritate your skin, but they should not be used with broken or irritated skin. It is important to note that reactions to scent blends and essential oils are possible, so make sure you know what works best for your skin.
ARE BATH BOMBS MOISTURIZING OR WILL THEY DRY YOUR SKIN OUT?
Not only do our bath bombs smell great, they are also very moisturizing for the skin. All of our bath bombs are made with argan & avocado oils, which work to deeply hydrate the skin.
DO YOUR BATH BOMBS CHANGE THE WATER COLOUR?
Our white bath bombs turn the water a little cloudy, whilst our colourful bath bombs will change the colour of the water. We use fruit and vegetable powder as our pigments.
