Bath bombs have become such a trendy beauty product over the past couple of years. When they’re dropped into a tub of water, they swirl with color, fill your bath with the scent of essential oils, and leave your skin feeling moisturized. Or so I’ve been told. I’m not much of a bath person. So if you’re like me, you might be missing out on the bath bomb trend.
I’ve always been more of a shower person. To be honest, the thought of sitting in bath water has never been too appealing to me. Besides, as hard as I try, I have trouble relaxing. There’s always something going on in my mind. As soon as the bath bomb would be done fizzing, I’d probably be wrapping myself up in a towel and onto tackling my next task!
But even if you’re not much of a bath person, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on these pretty bath bombs! In fact, I just bought five lavender bath bombs from Bubbly Belle. My sister had already ordered some from there and, one day over lunch, we discussed some of the other things you can do with bath bombs. No tub required!
Let me tell ya – I almost wanted to draw myself a bath after getting these bath bombs! Of course, I didn’t. But they smell really nice! I love lavender because of its calming properties and love using lavender scents in DIYs.
So today, I’m going to show you a few simple ways that you can use bath bombs outside of the tub. I’m giving you five excuses to run out and buy yourself a set of bath bombs even if you don’t like to soak in the tub!
This is such an easy DIY. Seriously. Just throw throw a bath bomb into an organza bag, tie it up, and place it in a drawer. It’s a super simple way to make your drawers smell amazing!
You could also use this DIY in the shower! Just tie the bag to a shower head. The shower steam will allow the bath bomb to release its scent into the shower and you’ll be enveloped in fragrance!
Use Them in the Shower
Another way to use them in the shower is to place a bath bomb on the floor of the tub. When the shower water hits the bath bomb, it’ll fizz and release its scent into the shower. You won’t get the moisturizing benefits of the bath bomb, but you’ll be able to enjoy its nice, soothing scent!
Bath Bomb Sugar Scrub
You know I love a good body scrub! While I probably wouldn’t make this with dark colored bath bombs or ones with glitter in them, it’s a great way to use up lightly colored bath bombs (like these lavender bath bombs)!
Crush up a bath bomb in plastic bag (I used a small mallet to crush up the bath bomb). Place the crushed bath bomb in a small jar. Add 1/2 cup sugar and 1/3 cup melted coconut oil into the jar. Place the lid back on and give it a good shake. Use this scrub in the shower to exfoliate and moisturize your skin!
Keep Them in a Decorative Bowl
Want to keep your bathroom smelling nice? Simply display a few bath bombs in a decorative bowl like potpourri! If you have lavender scented bath bombs, you can also use an organza bag again and keep one next to your bed. The lavender scent will whisk you into relaxation as you wind down at night!
Use Them as a Deodorizer
There are a few ways you can use bath bombs as a deodorizer. You can place them in stinky shoes or keep them in the closet. Want to keep your car smelling fresh? Just place a bath bomb under the seat!
You can apparently make your own DIY Febreze with bath bombs, too! Dissolve a small chunk of a bath bomb in a cup of water. Then, fill a spray bottle with the mixture. Easy, homemade air and fabric refresher!
