One of the most popular bath bombs I make is the After-Workout Bomb. It’s purpose is to help you cool down and relax your muscles after a workout, so the recipe is a little different than my other bath bombs.
A main difference in the recipe is the use of Epsom salts. All of the other bath bombs contain 1/3 cup of cornstarch and 1/3 cup of Epsom salts. But in the After-Workout Bomb, there is 2/3 cup of Epsom salts and no cornstarch. The lack of cornstarch changes the shape of the bath bomb, but it’s worth it. Epsom salts are used to relieve minor aches and pains and soothe sore or tired muscles, so the extra amount is sure to benefit you post-workout.
The After-Workout Bomb also has a unique scent combination: peppermint and clary sage. Peppermint essential oil has a cooling effect, and it can help relieve muscle pain. Clary sage essential oil also has this cooling effect, is known for relieving stress, and blends nicely with peppermint! This bath bomb will leave you feeling clean and relaxed without stress, cramps, or sore muscles.
