Bath Fizzzs are hard-packed mixtures of dry ingredients which effervesce when wet. They are used to add oils, scent, bubbles or color to bathwater.
Benefits of Bath Fizzzs
Baking Soda: Baking soda is an all-natural cleanser, with a plethora of benefits for your skin. It helps remove dead skin cells, which leaves you with softer, smoother skin. It also neutralizes any pH imbalances in your skin. Baking Soda can also clear up any body acne and even out your skin tone.
Epsom Salt: Most commonly used in bath salts, Epsom salt is a naturally-occurring mineral that eases muscle aches, relieves stress, soothes sunburn, replenishes moisture back into the skin, and relaxes the body. Epsom salt relieves stress by promoting the production of serotonin and reducing the effects of adrenaline. The magnesium found in Epsom salt also reduces feelings of restlessness or anxiety. Skin can easily absorb Epsom salt when it is dissolved in warm water, and you allow your body to soak in it. Once absorbed, it begins to relieve muscle tension, pain, and inflammation in joints.
Citric Acid: The key ingredient that makes bath fizzzs, fizz up when put under water, is the combination of baking soda with citric acid. Citric acid is an organic agent that naturally occurs in citric acid fruits like lemons, oranges, and grape fruit. Citric acid helps loosen the damaged layers of your skin, allowing younger, smoother skin to replace it- which is why this ingredient is commonly found in anti-aging skincare products. The antioxidants found in this acid also helps repair skin, and fortify blood vessels.
Sweet Almond Oil: This oil is a mild hypoallergenic oil, which makes it safe for sensitive skin. Skin can absorb oils best when they are warmed, and by including them in bath bombs, your skin will feel extra hydrated and soft without feeling greasy. It can be used to gently dislodge debris from deep within skin pores and follicles, and also may help prevent future acne because of its vitamin A content.
Essential Oil/Fragrance: Each bath fizzz includes either a fragrance to provide you with an all-in-one aromatherapy session. Aromatherapy is the inhalation or bodily application of fragrant oils for therapeutic purposes. Inhaling your favorite scents while soaking in warm water enhances the feeling of well-being.
