Spotlight: Bath Bombs

Once just a trendy teenage treat, these balls of fizzy fun have become a bit of a household staple in recent years - and Blueberry has been Minehead’s destination for bath bombs since 2013.

How are they made?

Colours and fragrances are usually added to a base of citric acid and sodium bicarbonate, to make a mixture of dry ingredients which will react when dissolved in water to produce bubbles of carbon dioxide, creating the characteristic bath bomb fizz.

Our bath bombs from Bomb Cosmetics also contain carefully selected essential oils so you can easily enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy, no expertise needed! They’re largely divided into six “moods” to reflect how you want to feel:

  • Sleepy
  • Zen
  • Uplifting
  • Romantic / Indulgence
  • Energising
  • Awakening

….with fragrances to match. You can choose from fruity, floral, sugary, aromatic and fine perfume scents!

As a final flourish, many of the bath bombs are finished with hand-piped shea and cocoa butters, ingredients well known for their moisturising properties, which will leave skin feeling soft and nourished.

If you'd like some help choosing, we've created a fragrance selector to offer some suggestions :)

And, if you'd like maximum fizz that's SLS-free, you'll want to take a look at our range of jumbo bath bombs made in the UK by Ancient Wisdom :)
