Who invented bath bombs

A bath bomb or bath fizzie is a consumer product used during bathing. It is a compacted mixture of wet and dry ingredients molded into any of several shapes and then dried. Bath water effervesces at the surface of a bath bomb immersed within it, with attendant dispersion of such ingredients as essential oil, moisturizer, scent, or colorant.

The original bath bomb was patented by the Constantines in 1989 under the brand name 'Cosmetics To Go'.However, when the company went into administration, the couple lost the patent. In 2014, a new patent was issued to Cosmetic Warriors LTD (the proprietor of the Lush Cosmetics trademark), protecting the process of creating a bath bomb with distinct layers.

What is a Bath Bomb?

Bath bombs, also known as bath fizzers, are dry ingredients that are designed to effervesce once in contact with warm water. Once it hits the water, it releases essential oils, scents, colors, and bubbles to elevate your bath experience. Bath bombs can help condition the skin and soothe sore muscles. Additionally, they may help detox and relax the body and mind.   The great thing about bath bombs is that they contain the precise amount of oils and bath salts that you would normally have to purchase separately. Not only does using bath fizzers speed up the bath time process, but they make the experience so much better.

These ingredients are safe to use in the bath,but it’s important to note that bath bombs are inedible. We recommend this craft for children aged eight years or over.

5. Fill the bath bomb molds by alternating layers of dried flowers, bath salts, and the prepared mixtures according to your preference. Pack the mixture tightly into both halves of the mold.

7. Let the bath bombs air-dry overnight.

8. Once dried, you'll have your homemade bath bombs ready for use.

Top tips for making bath bombs

Be sure to use liquid food colouring,not gels. Gels will clump together when you add them to the bicarbonate and it’s hard to mix them in.
Once you’ve added the liquid to the mixture,you need to work quickly to mix everything together and push it into the mould as soon as you can.
To allow your bath bombs to dry,leave them uncovered in a cool,dry place(away from taps and humidity). They will take longer to set in humid weather.
