Have you ever wondered how bath bombs work? How can they disintegrate as soon as they get in touch with a bit of water? It’s all due to a simple chemical reaction. Bath bombs contain sodium bicarbonate, which is said to soften the water, and acids, such as citric acid. When the bomb is dry, these ingredients coexist peacefully, but add some water to the mix, and they will react and generate carbon dioxide gas, causing the bath bomb to break apart.
That’s cool, but also a bit sad, isn’t it? It always breaks my heart to see these beautiful little things fizz away, but the feeling lasts just as long as it takes for their effects to show up. So, what does the Velvet Underground Bath Blaster do? White in colour, but interspersed with coloured, fun dots, the bath bomb is shaped like a flower. It also features a blue flower, surrounded by a lilac decoration, on its top. More than a bath bomb, it resembles a candy confection, but sadly, it can’t be eaten.
This bath bomb doesn’t moisturize skin nor turns the water into some fancy colour. Its benefits are aromatic. As it fizzes away, it releases a clean but sultry scent of lavender and jasmine, topped with a hint of cocoa. It’s delicious, but also refreshing and energizing; just what’s needed after a long day on your feet. But if that’s not tempting enough for you, you may be interested to know that this bath bomb can also be found in a set, called Vintage Velvet Gift Pack which features a soap and three more bath bombs, including one of my favourites ever, the Vintage Rosehip Bath Blaster.
Have a happy and relaxing bath time!
