Relaxing in a warm bath relieves stress. Bath bombs enhance relaxation and turn an ordinary, routine bath into a luxurious treat. Bath bombs often contain chemicals labeled with strings of letters and numbers. Many scents come from artificial chemicals created in a lab. Is soaking skin in a chemical solution really healthy or relaxing? One advantage of homemade bath bombs is knowing exactly what they are made of. Homemade bath bombs also cost less than many commercial products. Shaped silicone molds create fun shapes, and meat baller forms smooth round bath bombs.
