Who doesn’t love a nice, warm, relaxing bath? If I am honest with you, I should tell you that I’m currently struggling not get up, walk away from this computer and hop into one myself. For me, there is nothing better at the end of a long day than sinking into that water and watching my worries fall away and my muscles melt into soft comfort.
Enough about my relaxation fantasy, though. Let’s get back to business. I realize that there are plenty of websites hanging around the internet filled with DIY recipes for creating your own bath bombs, but some of us simply don’t have the time or energy to put forth into making our own bath bombs. The point of a bath is to relax, not to make more work for you. That is why I chose to add this section of the website.
My husband (the other voice of this website) thought that it would be a waste of time to include this section. “We already have a section about salts, soaps and oils,” he said. “Isn’t that enough?” What he, clearly, doesn’t understand is that a bath bomb is different. In a way, it lumps all the benefits of salts and oils together while also providing the relaxing sensation of tiny, fizzy bubbles to the bathwater. Let’s go ahead and take a look at some of this year’s best-selling lush bath bombs.
There isn’t much to consider when it comes to purchasing bath bombs, but let’s take a very quick moment to go over a couple of key points. First, you should be aware that some bath bombs feature only all-natural ingredients and some others contain additives and chemicals. Though many people aren’t overly concerned about additives and chemicals in their bath bombs, I bring this up because I know that some people are concerned. If you have any allergies to artificial colorings or scents, be sure to read the packaging (or these reviews) very carefully. Sometimes companies will claim “100% natural ingredients” and really mean that some of the ingredients are, themselves, 100% natural, but the entire product is not.
The only other major consideration you should make when purchasing bath bombs is the size of your bathtub. If it is a relatively small tub, you shouldn’t waste your money on extra-large bath bombs. It may seem like you are getting more, but you will probably find that it isn’t necessary for them to be that large. On the other end of the spectrum, if your bathtub is very large you may want to consider larger bath bombs so that you don’t find yourself having to put more than one in at a time.
Other than those two considerations, the rest of your decision will likely come down to two things – your preferred scents and packaging. Different scents have different effects and different people are looking for different forms of relief from their bath experience. For some people, packaging is important because they will be giving the bath bombs as gifts or would like to leave them in their packaging as part of the bathroom’s interior décor.
Please note that we haven’t placed these bath bombs in any particular order and haven’t arranged them in terms of some being better than others. We have, however, placed words such as “All Natural, Organic, and Vegan” in the titles of the products to identify those which are actually all natural, organic, and vegan. When it comes to bath bomb sets, you should select the one which best meets your needs and contains your favorite mixture of scents.
