Making bath bombs can be super easy and fun but make sure you use natural ingredients that are not toxic for your skin.
So many commercial bought bath bombs contain fragrances and artificial colours that are harmful to our health and that of our kids.
Why stop using Commercial Bath Bombs
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 to look after your families health.
This inspired me to share these fun and natural bath bomb recipes with you.

How to find Quality Essential Oils for my Bath Bombs
Finding quality essential oils can be difficult and it took me a lot of time and energy to find the best brand available on the market.
I personally use doTERRA because they are the most pure, unadulterated essential oils available. They hide nothing and offer their clients 100% transparency which no other company does. You can read more about why I choose doTERRA here.
