Bath Tea Bombs
What happens when Mrs. Soap & Clay combines her favorite drink obsession with her favorite tub time obsession? Things get awesome! To kick off 2018, Soap & Clay has released six new bath bombs steeped in all things tea.
What it is: Six new mondo bath bombs with all of the fizzy, moisturizing fun we’ve come to love, but with a tea-riffic twist. Tea. That’s the twist. Hence tea-riffic. Moving on.
Why that’s awesome: Drinking tea has been said to promote a long, healthy life and provide various forms of relief for those living with chronic illnesses, but what happens when you take that tea into the tub? Well, as the skin absorbs many things from the world around us, teas rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and flavonoids can brighten, tone, and soothe the body from the outside too! The topical applications of teas span several centuries and can help acne, dry skin, free radical damage, and cell repair. So that’s awesome. To accomplish this without a horrific mess in the tub, these bombs are made from tea infusions and extracts. Of course, Mrs. Soap & Clay also added a bit of dried botanicals to each, so there’s still some pretties floating about in the bath water. If you’re not into the floating botanicals, try popping a bomb into an organza satchel (or the toe of a pair of stockings) to contain the botanicals. To amp up the awesome, these bath tea bombs are loaded with epsom salts for detox and muscle relief as well as moisture rich avocado oil for skin nourishment.
