5 Ways to Use a Bath Bomb Without the Tub

Ready to make a splash? Bath bombs are a great self-care addition to your everyday escape in the bathtub. These magical little spheres are essentially a concentrated form of bubble bath that contains different formulations. They can be made from wet and dry ingredients such as cleaning agents, effervescence, essential oils, moisturizers, herbs, flowers, and more. Not only do they leave you feeling silky soft, the aroma can help you feel more relaxed, refreshed, and revitalized. Here at LATHER, our bath bombs aren't just luxurious, we create them to detoxify and promote hydration using soothing minerals, nourishing botanicals, and uplifting essential oils. Of course, we never include synthetic fragrances in our bath bombs. These man-made scents can contain toxic chemicals — and that isn’t something you want in your bath.

We think there is something incredibly gratifying about dropping one of these fizzy, fragrant bath bombs into the tub. However, many people live in places with only a walk-in shower. Fortunately, we've crafted a number of ways you can enjoy a bath bomb without the tub. Read on for ways you can soak it all in.

  1. Create a foot soak.
    Looking to relieve tension and relax your feet? Grab a basin or a bucket and fill it with warm water. Drop in a bath bomb and let your feet soak away. It’s a great way to end a long day on your feet (adding a glass of rosé is optional, but recommended).

  2. Deodorize any room.
    With most bath bombs, the primary ingredient is baking soda — absorbing odor in any room. Along with the additional fragrance or essential oils, bath bombs truly make a great deodorizer while leaving a beautiful aroma behind. Grab an organza bag or cheese cloth and crush the bath bomb inside. You can tie it together and hang it in any room you wish.

  3. Make room freshener.
    Similar to the deodorizer, you can create a room freshener by adding different ingredients to the organza bag or cheese cloth. We love adding dried flowers, herbs, spices, and crystals (for some extra energy alignment).

  4. Craft a homemade air freshener.
    If you are anything like us, you may have encountered a room that needed immediate help in the odor department. Whether it’s the lingering scent of food or pets, a bath bomb is the answer. Fill a glass with water and cut your bath bomb into a smaller piece to fit. Remember to leave some extra room at the top in case the water bubbles over. Drop your bath bomb into the glass and enjoy the revitalizing aroma.

  5. Relax with aromatherapy.
    There are so many benefits to aromatherapy — including stress reduction, improve sleep, alleviate headaches, boost immunity and more. Pick a space that you can escape to. Feel free to light candles, play music, etc. Whatever it takes to create the perfect ambiance for relaxation. Break up your bath bomb and drop it into a dish or glass with water. All you have to do now is sit back and enjoy.
