A warm, relaxing bath is the ultimate cozy treat for unwinding after a hard day, or when muscles ache, or when winter holds everything in its icy grip. Bath worshippers everywhere will love the 15 bath bomb recipes contained in this book; they will transform bath time from an enjoyable experience to one that is truly pampering.
A bath bomb is made from just three main ingredients: citric acid, bicarbonate of soda and water, which are mixed together, molded and left to dry hard. When popped into a warm bath, the resulting ‘bomb’ fizzes and effervesces as it is immersed in the water, releasing any aromatic oils, herbs and butters you may have added to the mixture, and leaving the water fragrantly scented, soft and moisturizing. The easy-to-follow instructions in this book will show you how to make a variety of delightful, aromatic bath bombs. We’re sure you will enjoy making them and, more importantly, using them.
Elaine Stavert formed The Littlecote Soap Co. after a life-changing move from her television career in London to a farm in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside in England. With a keen interest in herbalism and aromatherapy, Stavert was soon developing a range of natural toiletries and bath products that were both kind to the skin and quintessentially English. Her passion for her products is evident in the pure and natural ingredients that are used in imaginative ways to produce traditional recipes with contemporary twists.
