What's the difference?

It's simple...

Bath bombs, bath fizzies, fizzy bath bombs and more... who's knows what the difference is and what they do?!

We've investigated to find out and thought it's something worth sharing!

You'll be glad to know that there is no major difference between a bath bomb, bath fizzies and fizzy bath bombs.

Generally speaking bath bombs come in a solid form and bath fizzies are available in a grain form, which is also known as bath salts. However, you will often come across bath bombs that are referred to as bath fizzies.Why is this?

Quite simple really... a solid bath fizzie is a solid form homogeneous mixture that is made up using amorphous grains. By including sodium bicarbonate, citric acid and other ingredients to add to the colour, scent, aroma and therapeutic benefits, you create what's more commonly known as a bath bomb.

Both bath bombs and solid bath fizzies are nonreactive when dry, however, add them to your bath and watch them dissolve, whilst fizzing throughout your bath.

Bath Bombs make the perfect gift this Christmas

Stuck for gift ideas this Christmas? I adore bath bombs, they give me the perfect opportunity to relax, destress and unwind after a long day working.

The way the bubbles fizz beneath me, gives off a pleasant tickling sensation that makes me giggle to myself. My hot bath turns into something that little bit special. The water turns milky, which leaves my skin feeling ultra soft. Whilst the gorgeous aromas fill the air, as I take a deep breath in and gently release, I feel my whole body relax further into the bath.

This is my time, no one can disturb me... the kids are tucked up in bed and my husband's keeping himself busy with a new computer game. It's not often I get moments like this, so I make the most of every second.

Every Christmas, I share my love of bath bombs with my friends and family... everyone gets one in their stocking as a little gift and they almost expect it with anticipation now.
