Bath Bombs Basics

Bath bombs are small balls of compressed powder that dissolve in water to release fragrance, colour, and effervescent bubbles. They were first invented in the late 1980s by a UK-based cosmetics company and have since become a popular way to add fun and function to baths worldwide. In addition to their unique aesthetic appeal, bath bombs can help soothe muscles, improve circulation, and relieve tension.

They are typically made with baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, Epsom salt, essential oils, food coloring, and/or sodium laureth suffocate.

When these ingredients are combined, they react with each other to create a fun fizzing effect. Bath bombs can be used for various purposes, including reducing stress, relieving muscle pain, soothing skin irritations, and more.

Why Use Rainbow Bath Bombs?

Rainbow bath bombs are perfect for those who want to add a little flair to their bathing experience. Not only do they look beautiful in the tub, but they also fill the air with a lovely scent and help nourish and hydrate your skin. These bath bombs are also great for kids (and adults!) who enjoy colourful baths but want to use something other than bubble baths

Using rainbow bath bombs is easy! Fill your tub with warm water, drop in the bomb of your choice, and watch as it fizzes and releases its colour into the water. You can then step into the tub and enjoy the colourful show! For best results, we recommend using 1-2 bath bombs per bath. And if you want to make a splash, try using 3-4 different colours at once for a truly spectacular show.

Choosing the Perfect Bath Bomb Gift

There are thousands of different types and scents of bath bombs available today. With so many choices, deciding which is suitable for your loved one can be challenging.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when selecting the perfect bath bomb Christmas gift:

  • Scent: This is the most critical factor when choosing a bath bomb. After all, you want your loved one to enjoy their bath bomb experience! If you need to figure out what scent they would like, try sticking with something classic like lavender or eucalyptus.
  • Colour: Bath bombs come in every colour under the rainbow! If you know your loved one's favourite colour, choose a bomb that matches. If not, try picking a colour that goes well with your chosen scent. For example, a citrus-scented bomb would look lovely in an orange or yellow.
  • Size and shape: Bath bombs come in all shapes and sizes. For something really unique, try picking out a bomb that is shaped like a flower or snowflake. Or, if you want to go all out, you can even find giant bath bombs that are almost too big for the tub! Just be sure to choose a size that will fit comfortably in your loved one's tub or shower.
  •   Price: Bath bombs range from around $5 to $30 each. If you're on a budget, plenty of great options are available at the lower end of that price range.
