Bath bombs that will blow your mind

I still shake my head and wonder how is it that I didn’t know about bath bombs.

When I received a box of French Lemon products for review purposes, I looked with interest at the small package marked “shower steamer” and wondered what it was all about.

I quickly jumped onto my search engine and my mind was blown.

Bath bombs and shower steamers are possibly the best things to happen to the personal care industry.

Even though they have been used since the ’90s, they have grown in popularity.

So those who are aware, bath bombs are balls of hard-packed mixtures of dry ingredients that when added to your bath water, fizz up and release essential oils and fragrances in your water.

They were created by Mo Constantine in 1989.

Shower steamers are placed on the shower floor, but away from the direct water stream. They also release amazingly relaxing scented oils.

I tried the French Lemon steamer and showering is not the same if I am not using it. So to make bath time even more relaxing, which we all deserve during this torrid time, here are our favourites to try.
