What Is a Bath Bomb?

After the age of 7, majority of the baths you take are not just to get squeaky clean but to relax. And rightfully so. If you’re new to the bath bomb world, welcome! Bath bombs are typically small spheres made from ingredients intended to fizz and infuse your bath with color and aromas when you drop it in your bath. Bath bombs are one of our favorite ways to transform bathtime into something a bit more special! 

Our Cait + Co bath bombs are made with coconut oil and milk for skin conditioning, while unique scents and fun colors add some zest to your bathing or self-care routine. When you toss the bath bomb in, enjoy happy aromas, soak up some "you-time,” and watch your bath water turn into a painting of gorgeous colors with each of these bubbly, refreshing gems.

Bath Bombs and Social Media

Although bath bombs have been available in malls and check out aisles for decades, bath bombs have become a bathing phenomenon that’s been plastered across social media. With the bath bomb hashtag bringing in 2 billion views on TikTok and 2.9M posts on Instagram, we don’t see this trend slowing down! 

If inspiration strikes, to completely maximize the new trend of “bathscaping,” you can design and decorate your space with a ‘gram-worthy aesthetic to really get in the mood. Is it necessary? No… but it is fun! Add some plants, candles, and a bath board to run along the width of your tub. By adding a bath board, you can rest a book, a computer to stream a show, a glass of your favorite beverage, and truly create the best, most soothing environment.

How to Use Bath Bombs 

We’ll leave you to your next bath experience with this: how to use a bath bomb. Bath bombs are super easy to use, and within seconds of dissolving, you'll be well on your way to unwinding. Short story short, open up the package and toss it in! 

Here is how to most effectively use a bath bomb:

  1. Run a warm bath, filling it to your desired level, leaving room for displacement.
  2. Open your bath bomb and discard any cardboard, plastic, and other packaging.
  3. Toss your bath bomb into the water and watch it dissolve. Feel free to mix it before stepping in, or let it be.
  4. For extra fizz and bubbles, place your bath bomb directly under the running water and watch as the foam takes over!
  5. Climb into the bath, lay back, and relax. Make sure to breathe deeply in order to inhale any essential oils in the bath bomb, promoting the ultimate relaxation.
  6. When done, drain the bathtub and be sure to rinse any residue to avoid potential build-up or staining.
