Bath Bombs for Sensitive Skin

I’ve always been very sensitive to both artificial dyes and fragrances. That’s one of the reasons that I use homemade beauty DIYs so often. 

When you make your own beauty products, you can control completely what you put into them. That means you are less likely to be irritated by the ingredients.

Are bath bombs bad for sensitive skin?

It really all depends on what’s in the products you use. Some of the fizzies you buy in the store contain a lot of artificial fragrances and dyes. 

This can cause redness, itching, or rashes. And, it may cause a change in your feminine pH balance resulting in irritation or a yeast infection.

What bath bombs are good for sensitive skin?

If you want something that you can purchase, rather than make, I would recommend Soapie Shoppe Peppermint and Pine. I absolutely love the way they smell.

Can you be allergic to bath bombs?

It’s more likely that you’re allergic to one of the ingredients. Most commonly, it would be the fragrance or one of the artificial preservatives.

Try looking for hypoallergenic bath bombs when you’re shopping. Or, try making them yourself.

Supplies needed

  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1/8 cup cream of tartar
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot powder
  • 6 tablespoons Sunflower oil
  • 1/8 cup sea salt

Directions

  • Mix all the dry ingredients and whisk to combine.
  • Make sure that there are no clumps.
  • Mix the oil and essential oils in another container. Adjust the scent of your DIY bath bombs by controlling the amount of essential oil that you use.
  • Slowly pour the oil mix into your dry ingredients. You need to do this very slowly. If it starts to fizz, that means you are pouring the liquid too fast.
  • When your mixture feels like damp sand, you’re ready to put it in the mold.
  • Make sure you let the bath bombs dry for 2-3 days and unmold them carefully. They will still be fragile so be careful.

How should I store these?

Make sure that they are completely dry and then store them in a cool, dry place until you use them. Don’t keep them in the bathroom because the humidity will affect them.

You can store them in a plastic or glass container with a tightly fitting lid. Then, just take them out as you want to use them.

You can also give these as gifts. Just place them in a small basket with a loofah or a few tea bags and a candle.
