Bath Bombs FAQ

Bath Bombs are a perfect addition to any bath, great for relaxation, for your skin, and gives your bathroom a soothing and relaxing scent from the essential oils.


What is a Bath Bomb?

Bath Bombs come in all different shapes and sizes, when dropped into the bathwater it begins to fizz and dissolve rapidly, releasing its scent, oils, colour, and botanicals into the bathwater.

All of the ingredients used in our bath bombs are natural, pure, vegan friendly, and are designed to soothe, detox, and help you to relax and unwind.



What do Bath Bombs include?

Our Bath Bombs are made using simple raw ingredients, these include Sodium Bicarbonate (Bicarbonate of Soda), Citric Acid, Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom Salt), and Cornstarch. As a Carrier Oil, we use Olea europaea (Olive) fruit oil, as this is a light, unscented oil, great for the skin and very moisturing. We also only use pure essential oils, they each have their own health benefits, whether that is being relaxing or has uplifting properties. We also use natural, vegan-friendly micas to add a little sparkle and colour to the bathwater.


Why do I use certain ingredients in our Bath Bombs?

Sodium Bicarbonate and Citric Acid - React together, release carbon dixoide and that is how the fizz happens when it meets the water.

Magesium Sulfate - When dissolved in the bath it can help to relax tired muscles and loosens stiff joints. It is easily absorbed into the body.

Cornstarch - Similar to Cornflour and is great for holding the bomb together, and slowing down the reaction for when the Sodium Bicarbonate and the Citric Acid meets when it hits the water and dissolves and fizzes.

Olive Oil - Helps to moistuise and hydrate you skin, a great unscented carrier oil.

Pure Essential Oils - All have relaxing and uplifting properties, some having both, so your body will just take what it requires.




What is the expiry date on our Bath Bombs?

Our bath bombs last a very, very long time - when kept in the correct conditions. Try to avoid removing the Bath Bomb from its packaging unless you want to use the product, as this will keep any moisture out and will keep all of the goodness inside.
