WHAT IS A BATH BOMB?
Bath bombs are solid spheres or shapes that fizzle and dissolve when tossed into your bath water. They have a mind of their own and may sink or float. Not only do they add a bit of fun to your bath, but ours are made with a variety of all natural ingredients designed to sooth, detox, moisturize, and help you relax.
WHAT MAKES BATH BOMBS DIFFERENT FROM 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 aroma therapeutic 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.
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 an airtight container or a zip lock bag 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 products sooner rather than later. The longer you wait, the less effective the product will be unless it is stored well.
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 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 avocado oil and cocoa butter, which work to hydrate the skin.
DO YOUR BATH BOMBS CHANGE THE WATER COLOUR?
Our white bath bombs turn the water a little cloudy, while our colorful bath bombs will change the color of the water.
DO I NEED TO CLEAN MY TUB AFTER USING THE BATH BOMB?
It is best to wipe any ring left from colors right after letting out the water to prevent color stain build up. If you do this right away and use a soft microfiber cloth, it should come off without the use of a cleaner. Botanicals/grains can be rinsed down the drain or you can prevent this from happening by putting the bath bomb inside a small thin cloth bag, organza bag or a piece of nylon stocking. The bombs will still react, releasing scent and plant oils through the fabric but the solids will remain inside the bag or nylon stocking. Once the bath is over, all you have to do is empty out the bag or recycle it.
DO YOUR BATH BOMBS STAIN THE TUB?
Baking soda itself does not leave a residue and is commonly used in cleaning. To make them more fun we've added colors, essential oils and organic plant oils which hydrate the skin wonderfully but can also cause the pigments and essential oil colors to cling to the tub wall. Colors will build up more with each use so it is best to wipe residue away each time to make cleaning easy. If not, regular cleaning products and a bit of scrubbing may be required.
CAN YOU USE THEM IN A JET TUB OR JACUZZI?
We don't test for that, you would have to check with your manufacturer regarding the ingredients allowed.
