Here at Pixy Natural Skincare one of our constantly best selling products is the humble bath bomb (and bath bomb gift sets). They are a great way to enhance the bath and are filled with skin moisturising ingredients. The combination of the sodium bicarbonate and citric acid is what helps soften and restore your skin. While the combination of the aromatherapy of the essential oils and natural ingredients will help enhance your relaxing bath.
This is one of the great things about a bath bomb. The ingredients contained in them actually help you relax in the bath.
How Does a Bath Bomb Actually Work?
When a bath bomb is dropped into your bath the sodium bicarbonate (also known as baking soda) in the bomb reacts with the citric acid to release carbon dioxide gas. This chemical reaction causes the bath water to bubble, fizz and let off a subtle fragrance.
As mentioned most people drop the bath bomb in first but I have heard of people sitting in the bath then dropping the bath bomb in! Pixy loves this alternative approach!!
What Ingredients Are Used in the Pixy Bath Bombs?
This is ingredient is common to all our bath bombs. The honey powder dissolves nicely when in contact with the hot water. The Powder is ideal for softening your skin and helping with circulation which in turn reveals a new brighter skin.
This powder is also ideal for the removal of bad bacteria, and is a natural cleanser and has the ability to attract and retain moisture in the skin thus helping assist the anti-aging process.
Lavender Essential Oil (Lavender Bath Bomb)
This ingredient can assist in all-over skin care, aiding blood circulation and can help you relax. While the health benefits of lavender oil for the skin can be attributed to its antiseptic and antifungal properties.
