Just thinking about using a bath bomb tonight gets me all relaxed. I love my hot baths at the end of a long day, but there are some who prefer to just hop in the shower, get out and go. Those who prefer a shower may not see the benefit of using a bath bomb, but if they take the time to experience a bath bomb, they just might change their minds. Bath bombs are balls created out of Epsom salt, essential oil, citric acid, and cornstarch. When you drop one in the tub, it starts to fizzle and dissolve, turning the tub into an oasis of relaxation.
Many use these products as a way to help them relax and feel pampered. But did you know that there are many benefits to using bath bombs?
Epsom salt and baking soda help detox the body, making the body feel refreshed and free of toxins. Epsom salt also helps with muscle tension and assists in relieving stress. Depending on which essential oils are used in the bath bombs, those who use them can help with the ailments each oil is meant to target. Many feel revived and rejuvenated after using bath bombs made with chamomile, lavender, and eucalyptus essential oils.
Bath bombs can have a mental benefit too. Imagine hopping in a hot tub filled with soft oils and a fresh aroma. It is a great way to end the day or a long week. It gives you time to relax and clear your mind. So much better than being rushed in the shower before having to go to work.
Bath bombs are very good for the skin. Many have oils which will help moisturize the skin, leaving it soft and silky. Your skin will feel youthful and fresh. Giving you the refreshing boost you need.
Not only do bath bombs help you feel refreshed, they also help create an atmosphere in your bathroom. Once used, the aroma will fill your room giving you a spa atmosphere. The aroma is just the thing you need to feel pampered and luxurious. All of which will help boost your mood. All scents have a purpose. If you are looking for a certain mood, pick a scent that will help. For example, if you want energy, pick a citrus scent or if you want to relax, pick something with lavender.
