FAQ

What is a Bath Bomb?

A bath bomb is a scented mix of oils, fragrances, salts, and other key ingredients you add to your bath water for skin conditioning, aromatherapy, relaxation, and fun. The essential ingredients in all bath bombs are baking soda and citric acid. In water, the baking soda in the bath bomb reacts with the citric acid and produces the fizz. It’s similar to what happens when you drop an Alka-Seltzer tablet in a glass of water. The bath bomb starts to break apart as this happens, releasing with it the colorants, fragrances, and skin-conditioning ingredients, like salts and oils. The combination turns your bath water into a luxurious SoulBalm experience.


What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are great smelling oils made by Mother Nature. Essential oils are made by extracting oils from the leaves, needles, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or rinds of aromatic plants or fruits. They are extracted through various methods, such as cold press or steam.  Each fragrance is made from things from nature.

Try our bath bombs made with a blend of pure essential oils to create a unique aromatherapy experience, right in your tub: Apple Cider Vinegar, Honey & Lavender,  Eucalyptus Mint, Citrus Escape - Blood Orange & Lime

 


What is a benefit of Epsom salt?

Epsom salt helps to relax sore and tired muscles. Soaking in Epsom salt is the perfect remedy for anyone who works, plays sports, or is just on his or her feet all day. We include Epsom salt in many of our SoulBalms to relieve soreness. 


I have very sensitive skin should I use bath bombs?

The SoulBalm bath experience is about recharging and rejuvenating you! We want to create a sensory experience which helps you connect to your beautiful soul. When recharged, you are able to present to the world the best version of you. With this as a directive, we minimize the use of excessive dyes and fragrances in our bath treatments. We want your experience to be enjoyable, not causing irritation and/or worry. If you have extreme skin sensitivity, then you should avoid using bath bombs as you may have sensitivity towards fragrances and/or colorants.
