The Wonders of Bath Bombs

I am in LOVE with bath bombs! The color, the fizz, the aroma…It’s the reason I take baths in adulthood. Bath bombs have a way of creating a truly relaxing, therapeutic experience.

Bath bombs are great because they cleanse and deodorize the skin without stripping it. Baking soda and citric acid are the core ingredients of bath bombs. Not only do these help to create the amazing fizziness of bath bombs, but they also help with cleansing.

Another amazing benefit of bath bombs is that they often times include natural oils to add moisture to the bathwater. This helps to leave your skin feeling very soft after a soak.

At The Loving Essence we incorporate oils and butters like olive oil, almond oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter into our bath bombs to allow for a moisturizing, relaxing bath. That way after a nice soak your skin feels moisturized. Many of our bath bombs also include goat’s milk powder which is rich in vitamins A & E, B6 & B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Triglycerides, Selenium, and alpha hydroxy acid to help remove dead skin cells allowing renewal of cells.

If you haven’t already, I suggest giving bath bombs a try. They really help promote and enhance relaxation after a long day.

Aloe Shea Body Cream

Aloe Shea Body Cream at The Loving Essence

Over at The Loving Essence, we are currently offering this incredibly creamy, peach scented body cream for daily use. The primary butter used in this particular recipe was East African Shea Butter which is a slightly softer texture to the West African Shea Butter that I have come to know and love. I also included some colloidal oatmeal to soothe sensitive skin. Sodium Lactate and Panthenol (B5) is also present in this formula to help draw moisture to the skin as well as to improve hydration and reduce inflammation to the skin. Aloe shea Body Cream Inside

If you’re someone who enjoys body butters (as I do), I recommend giving this product a try as well. It absorbs quickly into the skin leaving it hydrated with out any extra residue.  Now because this product does contain I high percentage of water soluble ingredients, paraben and formaldehyde-free preservatives were added at a minuscule amount for safety. All lotions require this to keep any icky bugs out of our beloved products.

What I love most about this body cream in particular is the strong presence of aloe vera
juice. My aim was to create a product that would not trigger skin sensitivities. Aloe Vera Juice is hydrating and helps to seal moisture into the skin. Aloe Vera can also assist in reduce inflammation, itchiness, and irritation to the skin.

There is very little fragrance in this product. I try to use fragrances at a low percentage so as to reduce the chances of anyone developing sensitivities from our products. However, because many of the other ingredients are practically odorless, the fragrance comes through with a light and pleasant peachy aroma. I absolutely love it. All of our fragrances are phthalate free.
