One of my *unofficial* goals for 2015 is to relax more. As the great Leonardo da Vinci once said, ‘Every now and then go away and have a little relaxation. To remain constantly at work will diminish your judgement.” What is more relaxing close to home than a luxurious bath? This year I will review products from my fav shop that makes fresh and handmade beauty goods, Lush! So draw up a bath, get a good book and a glass of wine, and let’s relax!
Lush’s Blackberry Bath Bomb is a purple/blue sweet smelling concoction that includes frankincense oil (a sweet and woody smell) with bergamot oil (sunshine in a bottle). Bergamot is used in aromatherapy for anxiety, depression and nervous tension, and is both relaxing and uplifting as well as antibacterial. The frankincense oil helps slow down breathing and induces a feeling of wellbeing.
Once you drop the bomb in your warm bath water the main ingredients sodium bicarbonate and citric acid go to work fizzing until there’s only purple water left- along with a surprise!
I’ve heard this bath bomb is a slow fizzer, but no complaints from me- it was completely dissolved within three minutes. The smell is clean and relaxing, and it made the water soft to the touch. My one complaint was the purple stain it left behind. It didn’t take too long to remove, but removing it wasn’t very relaxing in itself. Some complain that their skin turns purple as well, but I didn’t have that issue. Overall it was a great bath bomb- relaxing and smelled great!
