Bath bomb recipe for kids was inspired as many ask me what they can make with their kids that is safe, free from nasties and free from toxic colours.
Why stop using Commercial Bath Bombs with your Kids
Commercial bath bombs contain toxic synthetic fragrances (this is what gives them the strong smell) and nasty dyes.
A report by the National Academy of Sciences reveals that approximately 95 percent of the chemicals used in synthetic fragrances are derived from petroleum (crude oil). These chemicals include things like carcinogenic benzene derivatives, aldehydes, toluene, and a bunch of other toxic chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, allergic reactions, and central nervous system disorders.
It is recommended that you stay well away from these types of chemicals and start to make your own homemade bath bombs with your kids to look after your families health.
This inspired me to share this bath bomb recipe for kids.
