Preparing a bath bomb

This bath bomb will not only give you a therapeutic bath but also leave your skin silky soft. You can also put these 5 healing ingredients in your bath water.
Using a bath bomb
Your bath bomb can take about 15 minutes to fizz in water to completion. So fill your bathtub and wait for five minutes before you get in. Also, remember that bath bombs become less effective with passing time, so the fresher you use it the better it is. If you keep the bath bombs out on display, they will oxidize and lose the ability to react so well. While bath bombs are the mildest formula and do not irritate your skin, avoid using bath bombs if your skin is too sensitive.
Bottomline—Bath bombs are more about the sensory experience. So unless your skin is sensitive and you are concerned about irritants to go ahead and use them. Use these 5 things for a relaxing bath.
