A Bath Bomb is a fizzing treat for the tub. They consist of compacted combinations of Citric Acid, Sodium Bicarbonate and other ingredients -- which can include Corn Starch, Sea Salts, Epsom Salts, or Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA), as well as a fragrance. When dissolved in water there is a reaction between the Citric Acid and the Sodium Bicarbonate. In the course of the reaction, Carbon Dioxide is released. This creates the bubbles!

Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (in a ratio of 10-15%) produces lots of wonderful sudsy foam in the bath. It helps extend the fragrance of your Bath Bomb, as well as emulsify some of the oils you may be using in your blend.

You can create an unlimited number of combinations of Bath Bombs -- including Essential and Fragrance oils, dried herbs and botanicals, milk powders, oils and glycerin. We encourage you to browse our recipe selections -- they may help spark your own creativity!

Some Safety Notes:
Normal safety precautions should be taken when working with bath bombs such as safety goggles, dust mask and gloves. This should be done when you make your Bath Bombs regardless of what ingredients you are using. Citric Acid in the eye can be quite irritating.
Use of SLSA in the appropriate usage levels should cause minimal to no eye irritation, and is considered safe for children'* bath products. Direct contact with the concentrated product (100%) can cause moderate skin irritation.

SLSA is milder to the skin than other typical foaming agents such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. It is hard water stable and will not leave any soap scum. As with any product, ready complete instructions provided by the Manufacturer or Supplier, and follow them carefully. Safety first!

John, do you know how many marriages a year end with the husband saying

"Hey honey, watch THIS!"

Almost as many as redneck lives that end with

"Hold my beer for a second. I'm gonna try somethin'...."
