Why Using Bath Bombs is One of the Best Ways to Spoil Yourself

Before we get into how to use bath bombs in the bathtub, let’s talk about why using bath bombs is one of the best additions to any self-care routine. 

Whether you were gifted one of our fabulous bath bomb sets or are considering spoiling yourself with one, here’s why these are an amazing addition to your wellness arsenal.

What is a Bath Bomb?

These enhance your bathing experience with a burst of color, fragrance, and soothing ingredients. These compact, ball-shaped wonders are made from a mixture of natural ingredients, including baking soda, citric acid, and essential oils. 

When you drop a bath bomb into your tub, it fizzes and dissolves, releasing a symphony of scents and colors, turning an ordinary bath into a luxurious spa-like escape. But it’s not just about fun or relaxation - there are so many benefits!

Key Benefits

Using a bath bomb can be a gamechanger for your self-care routine - here’s why:

  • Aromatherapy Bliss: The unique blends of essential oils and fragrances create an aromatherapeutic experience that soothes your mind, uplifts your spirits, or invigorates your senses. For example, our “Strawberry Kiss” bath bomb combines juicy strawberry, blackcurrant, and sensual amber to comfort and relax you.
  • Skin Nourishment: Ingredients like shea butter, cocoa butter, and natural oils that moisturize and soften your skin. These nourishing elements disperse in the water as the bomb dissolves, enveloping your skin in a hydrating embrace.
  • Stress Relief: Taking a bath itself is a fantastic way to unwind, but adding a bath bomb elevates the experience to a whole new level. The combination of warm water, delightful scents, and gentle fizzing action helps melt away the stresses of even the most chaotic days.
  • Detoxification: Many bath bombs contain ingredients like Epsom salts, which are known for their detoxifying properties. These can draw out impurities from your skin, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
  • Improved Sleep: Certain styles help prepare your body for a restful night's sleep. The calming scents and warm water help lower your heart rate and relax your muscles, making it easier to drift off into a peaceful slumber. 
  • Aesthetic Delight: The vibrant colors and beautiful designs of bath bombs add an element of fun and visual appeal to your bath. 

All this sounds amazing…where do you sign up? Look no further than our organic bath bombs here at Oasis Home Spa. Stock up on our set today and find out which is your new favorite. We’ll walk you through how to use bath bombs below!

  • Tropical Island: A fun, tropical mix of bananas, grapefruit, kiwi, bubblegum, strawberries, and a hint of vanilla.

Should You Put the Bath Bomb in First or Wait for the Tub to Fill?

Fill your tub with warm water first for the best results. Then, drop the bath bomb into the water. This ensures that the bath bomb has the space to dissolve properly, releasing its full array of colors, fragrances, and skin-nourishing ingredients.

Why Water Temperature Matters

Warm water, ideally between 92°F and 100°F (33°C and 38°C), helps dissolve the bath bomb efficiently while being gentle on your skin. Too hot, and you might feel uncomfortable, but too cold and the bath bomb might not dissolve fully.

Do You Put a Bath Bomb in Before or After You Get in?

Drop the bath bomb into the tub after you've filled it and just before you get in. This allows you to watch the bath bomb fizz and disperse, creating a magical experience. You can step into the bath and enjoy the luxurious water once it's fully dissolved.

Do You Use the Whole Bath Bomb at Once?

One of the most common questions we get is how many bath bombs to use, or whether you can divide up the bath bomb into multiple uses to save money.

For the full effect, it’s best to use the entire bath bomb. Each bath bomb is designed to deliver the optimal amount of fragrance, color, and skin-nourishing ingredients in one use. 

However, you can break the bath bomb in half and save the rest for another bath if you prefer a milder experience.

Is There Anything Else Worth Adding to the Bath Bomb Experience?

Part of what makes our selection the #1 choice online is that they are carefully crafted to deliver the most indulgent experience without the need to add anything else. That being said, here are some of the most common ways to supplement the experience if you aren’t using ours specifically:

  • Essential Oils: Add a few drops for extra aromatherapy benefits and skin nourishment.
  • Epsom Salts: Provide additional relaxation and muscle relief.
  • Bubble Bath: Create a more luxurious and fun bathing experience.
  • Skincare Ingredients: Add oatmeal or honey for extra moisturizing and soothing properties.

Setting the Mood for the Ultimate Experience

The bath bomb itself creates an experience unlike any other, but why not make the most of this self-care routine? ​Dim the lights, light a candle, and play some soft music. Have a plush towel and a cozy robe ready for when you finish your bath.

Post-Bath Tips for Tying it All Together

You may want to rinse in the shower to get all the ingredients off your skin once you drain the tub. Then, gently pat your skin dry to retain the moisture from the bath bomb's ingredients. 

Apply a natural body lotion or oil to lock in hydration. Take a moment to relax and enjoy the lingering fragrance on your skin. If necessary, rinse out your tub to remove any residue.
