Bath Bomb Ingredients Explained by Hot Mess Body

Bath bombs are a delightful addition to any bath, turning a simple soak into a luxurious and fun experience. What's even better is that you can easily create these fizzy wonders at home. Let's dive into the purpose of bath bombs and what the ingredients are actually doing!

  1. Baking Soda: The key ingredient for fizziness and softening the water.

  2. Citric Acid: Helps create the fizz when combined with baking soda.

  3. Cream of Tartar: Adds silkiness to the water and binds the ingredients.

  4. Magnesium Salt: Relaxes muscles and soothes the skin.

  5. Essential Oils: For fragrance and aromatherapy benefits. Choose scents that relax or invigorate, like lavender or citrus.

  6. Nourishing Oils: Provides moisture and helps bind the mixture.

  7. Colouring (optional): Adds colour to your bath bomb.

  8. Witch Hazel (a few spritzes): Helps bind the ingredients together.

  9. Polysorbate 80: Helps bind the oils and water together and reduces the colour residue in the bath

Homemade bath bombs are a fantastic way to personalize your bath experience and make wonderful gifts for loved ones. Get creative with coloUrs and scents, and soon you'll be treating yourself to spa-like baths in the comfort of your home.
