Our children have prepared with their own hands bath bombs as a gift for Mother’s Day
Mamas! You work hard every day of the year, today is your time to relax!
Our children have prepared with their own hands, bath bombs as a gift for Mother’s Day to appreciate all the wonderful efforts you make for them every single day of the year.
Time to relax for
with these wonderful bath bomb gifts that come in many colours, prepared by our little ones. Made with a base of food-grade ingredients, natural oils and rose petals, our children filled Easter eggs with the mixture.
If you want to make these relaxing fuzzy bath bombs again during the year, this is what you need to know about the ingredients:
All the ingredients we used are food-grade!
1. Epsom salt:
Epsom Salt is believed to help stabilize mood and relieve stress, anxiety and depression. In fact, some researchers claim that taking magnesium increases serotonin (happiness or relaxation hormone) production. Epsom salts also relaxes muscles and relieves pains in the shoulders, neck, back, and skull
2. Castor Oil:
Castor Oil moisturizes the skin by preventing water loss. This can promote good skin health, relieve dryness, and soothe skin inflammation.
3. Lavender Essential Oil:
a few drops of Lavender essential oil promotes relaxation.
4. Baking soda:
It has many benefits for the skin and has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
5. Citric acid:
Citric acid effectively removes dead skin cells, helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps to even skin tone, which is why most toners contain citric acid.
6. Cornstarch Powder:
Cornstarch is an odourless powder that works as a carrier for other active ingredients allowing them to penetrate into the skin, thereby providing intense nourishment from within while making the skin soft and blemish-free naturally. It is known to improve the skin’s absorption abilities and is often used to dry breakouts without causing dryness or irritation on the skin
7. Rose Petals:
Known as a powerful mood enhancer, adding rose petals to a warm bath will help rid you of feelings of anxiety. Apart from being a detox for your body, it will also help you sleep better. The natural oils found in roses help retain moisture in the skin.
