On a cold winter day or after a particularly stressful experience at the office there is nothing quite like kicking back in a warm, relaxing bath. Sure, a basic bath is soothing and can really take away a winter chill, but for a truly comforting experience it is imperative that you have a few bath extras. Lighting candles or adding bubbles can set a peaceful tone, as can dropping in a fizzy and fragrant bath bomb.
Bath bombs have become very popular in the last several years and are sold in soap and bath shops all over. They come in all colors, sizes, shapes and scents, with something to suit everyone’s tastes. Some even have beautiful extras, such as flower petals, embedded to add to the experience. While bath bombs are a lot of fun, they can be rather pricey, especially if you use them often.
If you are a bit of a bath bomb junkie you may want to invest in your own Bath Bomb Maker from Japan Trend Shop instead. This fun gadget allows you to craft your own spherical bombs in a few easy steps. Apparently you just pour in baking soda, citric acid and essential oils ( and I assume color and any other additives you want), turn the crank to stir, pull a lever to drop the mix into the mold and press down another lever to squeeze it into the perfect shape.
The instructions and ‘recipes’ appear to come in Japanese though, so you may have to improvise a bit. It looks like a fun little device, nevertheless, and could help you create some great gifts too.
