Ever since they were invented years ago, bath bombs have carved out a strong spot in the already crowded spa and wellness industry thanks to their simplicity and fun factor. They help relieve stress, make your bathroom and skin smell nice, produce fun colors and fizz, and are easy to make with natural ingredients and essential oils, which is a boon for those with sensitive skin and DIYers. When used as directed, bath bombs are perfectly safe, but it's best to check for any added dyes, fragrances, or chemicals that might irritate the skin, especially if you're shopping for kids.
For our list, we prioritized items with limited ingredients, organic components, essential oils, moisturizers like shea butter and coconut oil, and natural colorants. It was also important that selections not stain tubs or skin or leave a sticky feeling behind. Some, like the Sky Organics Kids, Beauty by Earth Healing, and Natural Spa XXL contain soothing epsom salts or dead sea salts.
Today's update saw the removal of the Luna Love Naturals in favor of the vastly more popular LifeAround2Angels Moisturize, a set of individually-wrapped bombs with potent fizzing power, creative scents that don't overwhelm and leave you lightly fragranced, and contain no glitter or other microplastics. We also brought on two more additions to round our list out to an even ten, and that includes the Ouai Chill Pills, which are ideal for those who want a toned-down stress-reliever without the excess pomp and circumstance. Each has the same lovely fragrance, which is great if you want to stick to the same thing and don't love every option in variety packs, and they can be snapped in half for foot soaks or milder baths.
