What is a bath bomb?

If you don’t know what a bath bomb is, it’s essentially a ball made primarily from sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), which is combined with additional ingredients such as essential oils, fragrances, and other additives.
These balls are then dropped into the tub filled with hot water, releasing an amazing aroma of essential oils, as well as helping to give your skin a spa-like treatment when you soak in the tub after wards.

How Does it Work?

The “bomb” aspect of a bath bomb is the fizziness. But what’s going on in those spheres that make them so fizzy? Two of the key ingredients to a bath bomb are citric acid and sodium bicarbonate. You might also know sodium bicarbonate by its more common name, baking soda. These two ingredients are what cause the impressive and delightful fizz when the bath bomb enters the water.
When sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) comes in contact with water, the sodium (Na) molecules break off from the bicarbonate (HCO3). At the same time, the citric acid is dissolving, with a single hydrogen ion (H+) separating from the rest of the molecule. When the released hydrogen ion from the citric acid encounters the bicarbonate from the baking soda another reaction happens! This time, carbon dioxide (CO2) gas is released as one of the end products. The carbon dioxide forms bubbles in the soap and bath water, and rushes to the surface with a delightful fizz.

5 Reasons Why You Should Try A Bath Bomb

1. It’s an explosive for the bath.

“Should I be bathing in something that appears to have a mind of its own, fizzing and spinning?” Why, yes, sugar. You should. That is only the sodium bicarbonate in the bomb reacting with the citric acid to release carbon dioxide gas. It is like dropping an Alka-Seltzer tablet in a glass of water. Except, instead of heart burn relief fusing out, skin relief oozes out. This gets us to our second point…

2. It is moisturizing for your skin!

Each bath bomb is infused with avocado oil, leaving your skin smooth, soft and moisturized.

3. They are cool.

We are living in the 21st century, sugar. Babies have cell-phones. Do you really think a plain old bubble bath is going to lure them in? Think again. However, colorful tides of whimsy and mystery will do the trick, believe us.

4. They are better for the environment!

Who needs bottles of plastic taking up space in your bathroom, while you can have baskets of bath bombs, looking pretty and making the room smell pretty, too!

5. Our scents are about as various and luxurious as they come!

Cosmic Berry: Under the sea, the tectonic plates quiver from the explosive effects of the Cosmic Berry bath bomb. This scent is a tsunami of the sweetest berry scents!

Lavender Fields: Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see... Lavender Fields Forever. While we can’t promise hallucinatory results, we can promise extreme relaxation. Lavender is known for its calming properties, sugar. Take a trip into your bath tub and lull into the night.

Pacific Rain: In Greek, “Petrichor” describes the earthy scent produced when rain falls onto dry soil. It’s said to be the fluid that flows in the veins of the gods. One rinse in Pacific Rain, King Triton’s signature scent, and your skin will achieve that celestial glow.
