lavender is noted for its calming properties, it can calm down skin irritations and can soothe tension from both muscles and the mind. The Romans and Egyptians used lavender oil in ancient times for bathing and relaxation.
baking soda The first ingredient that goes into my bath bombs is baking soda. Baking soda is an all-natural cleanser, with a plethora of benefits for your skin. For starters, it helps remove dead skin cells, which leaves you with softer, smoother skin. It also neutralizes any pH imbalances in the skin. Baking Soda can also clear up any body acne and even out your skin tone.
epsom salt Most commonly used in bath salts, Epsom salt is a naturally-occurring mineral that eases muscle aches, relieves stress, soothes sunburn, replenishes moisture back into the skin, and relaxes the body. Epsom salt relieves stress by promoting the production of serotonin and reducing the effects of adrenaline. The magnesium found in Epsom salt also reduces feelings of restlessness or anxiety. Skin can easily absorb Epsom salt when it is dissolved in warm water, and you allow your body to soak in it. Once absorbed, it begins to relieve muscle tension, pain, and inflammation in joints.
citric acid The key ingredient that makes bath bombs fizz up when put under water, is the combination of baking soda with citric acid. Citric acid is an organic agent that naturally occurs in citric acid fruits like lemons, oranges, and grape fruit. Citric acid helps loosen the damaged layers of your skin, allowing younger, smoother skin to replace it- which is why this ingredient is commonly found in anti-aging skincare products. The antioxidants found in this acid also helps repair skin, and fortify blood vessels.
essential oil and fragrance each bath bomb includes either an essential oil or a fragrance to provide you with an all-in-one aromatherapy session. Aromatherapy is the inhalation or bodily application of fragrant essential oils for therapeutic purposes. Inhaling your favorite scents while soaking in warm water enhances the feeling of well-being.
