The Bath Fizzer, Aka “The Bath Bomb”

Fizzy little bath bombs will most likely never lose their popularity, and it’s probably for a variety of reasons. Today, we share some insight behind the seemingly ever trending, bath fizzer, aka “The Bath Bomb”.

First brought to mainstream attention through companies like LUSH, bath bombs have went through a lot of changes over the years as more people have experimented with them. Small and larger business’s alike have continued to experiment with the uniqueness that is, the bath fizzer.


Why Does The Bath Bath or Bath Fizzer Remain Popular?

There are seemingly many reasons they continue to trend, more reasons then we could begin to imagine for this post. Heck, take for instance the craze for charcoal in bath and beauty products. This ingredient has even been carried over into the “bath bomb realm”. Pretty crazy stuff, we would say!

However, we’re going to take a quick jab at why we think bath bombs are here to stay!


Number 1: Change

The number 1 reason bath bombs or bath fizzer’s have remained a popular trend, we believe, is because of their ability to change.

Individuals, and business’s have continued to experiment with and push the limits for what a bath bomb can do. Originally, just known by many for their aromatics and cool fizzing actions, these fizzy bath bombs have changed over the years.

For example, bath fizzers of today even have toys inside of them, and other fun surprises like jewelry, as well. Furthermore, almost any design you can imagine can be molded into the perfect bath bomb with some expertise and a 3D printer.

Embedding bath fizzers with blocks of colorants have also become all the craze. Take for instance the rainbow bath bomb that sheds colors of the rainbow as it dissolves.


Number 2: You Can Do It!

Another reason they stay popular is that anyone that wants to create a bath bomb, can create a bath bomb. Surely, it takes practice to get a recipe down, and how to effectively mold, but anyone can create one.

All you need is a few bath bomb ingredients! The limits of what you want a bath bomb to do and design, ends with your own imagination.

Number 3: Affordability

Surely, you can go to LUSH or other big name stores and purchase a $6, $7, $8, even $12 dollar bath bomb, depending on size, details and ingredients. However, with a little research you can buy them cheaper, even wholesale some, for large parties or as wedding favors.

One search on ETSY and you can find any type of bath bomb you want for a wide range in prices. Oftentimes, the cheaper the bath bomb, means less ingredients, too. This can be good and bad depending on what you want it to do.


Ask yourself;

  • Do you want high quality oils?
  • Infusions of butters, such as Shea or cocoa?
  • Extra embeds?
  • Water soluble colors vs. mica’s?
  • Clay’s?


Not all ingredients are created equal. In fact, if you wanted to, you could make a bath bomb with just 3 ingredients; baking soda, citric acid and a binder, like witch hazel. Having said that, this may not make for a very fun fizzer.


Number 4: Basics Never Change

Expanding on the above point, no matter how sophisticated bath bombs become, the core ingredients of a bath bomb, never really change. Those mentioned above will most likely be in them all, which should keep them in a relatively affordable class.


Number 5: Fun!

They are just pan fun! Quite literally, that’s all we really have to say for reason number 5.

Literally anyone can use one, including men, women, children, and have a unique experience.


Number 6: Portability & Versatility

Coming in at #6, is their portability or versatility. Bath bombs can make for a beautiful display piece in your bathroom, as well. With their aromatics and colorants, not only can they be eye pleasing, but also easy on the olfactory senses.

Furthermore, placing them in an air tight container, will keep them fresh. Moreover, making sure additional moisture won’t effect there desirable fizzing action, if you wish to what a few weeks to use them.

However, it is recommended to use bath fizzers within 3 months time.


Number 7: A Popular Gift Idea?!

Bath bombs are not only easy to make at home, but with a little research you can also, gift them. They can be a really cool birthday gift, Christmas, or even a relaxing gift for that hard working mom.

The possibilities are truly endless.


#8: They Look Amazing!

Finally, but certainly one of the most important reason they stay trendy is, there beauty. Bath bombs are easy on the eyes, and can be displayed or stored for visibility in your bathroom, and people will say how amazing they look.

From there bright vibrant colors, to there cool designs and styles, they can become a fun talking point for anyone.
