Not many people out there have the patience or the time to take a bath and some people do not have bath tubs at all. For those without a bathtub the time to use a bath bomb would be when on vacation in a hotel room with a bath tub or at a relative or friend's house with a bath tub. Since most people do not want to do this or just really don't have the time to take a bath, there is some alternatives.
The most common alternative use is a good old fashioned foot soak, something that can be enjoyed anytime and basically all you need is a bucket or basin, warm water, the bath bomb and of course your feet. Soak away.
Simply fill a basin/bucket with warm water, cut the bath bomb in half and drop one half into the basin/bucket. Wrap up or Ziplock the other half with a cling-wrap and store it in an airtight container. Soak your feet for 15 minutes letting the essential oils used in your bath bomb drain away the aches and stresses of the day.
While treating your feet to a luxurious spa, take the opportunity to sit back and relax to some music or light reading. Your feet will emerge clean & feeling soft and refreshed afterwards. Ensure that you dry the bottom of your feet thoroughly before stepping out of the bucket as the oil from the bath bomb could be slippery. It is so easy to prepare and is so rewarding as you pamper those tired feet of yours.
There is another great idea that we got from one of our customers whose house has no bath tub. She was keen to try out our bath bombs to destress and relax herself after having given birth 5 months prior. The sleepless nights coupled with managing two older children have left her feeling somewhat burnt out and badly in need of her “me-time”.
She had asked several questions about our bath bombs and ended up buying some. I was however quite curious as to how she used them so I called her two weeks later to find out. Who would have thought that it could be as traditional as it gets.
She said "I filled up a bucket with warm water, dropped a bath bomb in it and used a scooper to pour that water all over my body". Well, talk about making do with what one has and where there’s a will, there is always a way. She loves how the scent of the essential oils relaxed her mind, while the Epsom salt soothed her tired muscles and the coconut oil softened her skin. But for her, the best part was when the bath bomb dispersed it’s color and scent while fizzing and spinning.
Her answers above have already answered the next question I was going to pose and that is, why would you use a bath bomb and not bath salts?
I’m often finding myself being pleasantly surprised with the creativity of some people and how they use and enjoy bath bombs for other reasons.
