Self Care, Simplified
We know self care is an overused phrase nowadays, but now more than ever it’s important to make sure you set aside a little bit of time for yourself every now and then.
The daily grind is stressful. Your to-do list is never complete. Juggling work, a social life, and household tasks keeps us all busier than we might like to be.
Self care means something different for everyone. For some it could be an extravagant (and expensive) day at the spa, but it doesn’t have to be that fancy. Ideally, the time you set aside for self care should stimulate the senses, allowing you to be present in a relaxing moment made just for you.
Maybe for you that means a soothing face mask and a Netflix binge that makes you laugh or cry, or fuzzy socks and a salty snack, or a nice warm bath accompanied by your favorite music. While you’re at it, you might as well toss in a bath bomb and truly ignite your sense of smell, sound, and touch.
Why bath bombs?
Unless you have been living under a rock, you have probably seen someone post a dreamy picture of their bathtub turned “work of art” all thanks to a bath bomb. Or maybe you have seen someone toss a bath bomb into a candlelit tub followed by the fizzy sounds as it dissolves.
Bath bombs are trendy, sure, but they can also be a very relaxing sensory experience. It doesn’t have to only be for the gram, either. You don’t see anyone posting how they have to scrub the remains of a glittery bath bomb off of the tub.
Ingredients like glitter, fragrances, and other chemicals found in many popular bath bombs can irritate your skin. Irritated skin kind of defeats the purpose of a relaxing bath, right? That’s why it’s important to find natural bath bombs so you can just relax and soak up your little self care moment, no fancy Instagram photo needed.

Calming Natural Bath Bomb
Sometimes, you just need to find a moment of calm. Bare Skin Bar’s Calming Rose Clay Bath Bomb is the perfect little treat. This natural bath bomb softens when infused with warm bathwater. Enjoy the stress-relieving scents of lavender, sweet orange, neroli, patchouli, and ylang ylang. While you soak, rose clay will work to gently remove impurities from your skin while cocoa butter hydrates and improves elasticity. Himalayan Sea Salt is like the sprinkles atop this self care treat, stimulating circulation and soothing sore muscles.
This bath bomb is suitable for all skin types.
Detoxifying Natural Bath Bomb
Looking for more of a detox? We don’t judge. This Detoxifying Sea Salt and Coconut Oil Bath Bomb from Bare Skin Bar harnesses the natural powers of coconut oil and sea salt, which are known to draw toxins out of the body. Dead sea salt is also known to improve skin hydration and enhance your skin’s natural barrier. Coconut oil also helps to keep your skin moisturized, while kaolin clay absorbs toxins from the skin. All of these powerful natural ingredients are combined with peppermint oil to awaken the senses and cool the skin. This natural bath bomb can be purchased in a 4-pack or a single pack, and is not recommended for children or women who are pregnant.
Softening Natural Bath Bomb
If you have dry or sensitive skin, Bare Skin Bar’s Softening Oatmeal and Shea Butter Bath Bombs are made with you in mind. Colloidal oatmeal is known for soothing itchy and irritated skin, while coconut milk moisturizes and softens dry or irritated skin. Shea butter is naturally rich in Vitamin A which is known to help improve the appearance of blemishes, eczema, and dermatitis. All of these key ingredients are combined with soothing chamomile, calendula, and lavender.
Restoring Natural Bath Bomb
Are you sore from an intense workout, or just feeling drained mentally? Try Bare Skin Bar’s Restoring Spirulina and Hemp Seed Oil Bath Bomb. With cypress and eucalyptus essential oils, this bath bomb is like taking a warm and relaxing dip in the middle of the forest without ever leaving your bathroom. Epsom salt aids in relieving muscular aches and pains while spirulina helps revitalize tired skin. This bath bomb is perfect for oily or combination skin types with hempseed oil, which is known to balance out oily skin.
Natural Bath Bombs: Variety and Multi-Packs
With so many great options - no glitter needed - it can be difficult to pick just one. This Variety Pack is perfect, including all 4 bath bomb types and minimal sustainable packaging.
