The combination of baking soda and citric acid when in a dry environment are just that; baking soda and citric acid. However, when these two elements are put together, and then placed into water a reaction occurs. As this bicarbonate base and weak acid are dissolved in the water, they start to fizz and fizz and fizz. This fizzing action is actually carbon dioxide. As the bath bomb dissolves and the carbon dioxide releases into the water, any bather feels a light tickling sensation on their skin. Hence the well known attribute that bath bombs are known for.
When it comes to the bath bomb shapes, the world can be your oyster. There are already many varying elements that you can change to make your bath bombs unique. Whether you choose to do this through scent, color, skin loving oil, or herb addition; the possibilities are endless.
Bath bomb shapes are just as limitless as the other unique qualities you can give your bath bombs.
