Shower Bomb Giveaway (Start the New Year… Cozy)


It’s a cold winter’s night.  I am sipping the hottest of cocoas and snuggled under down as I type.  Just past the deep dark of the winter solstice, wouldn’t it be warming to relax in a deep fragrant bath? 

Shower Bombs

Shower Bombs

Alas, I have to accept myself as a shower kinda’ gal.  The relaxation part sure sounds nice, but my to-do list is a killer.  But, what if I tried a nice shower bomb (and hosted a shower bomb giveaway)?  

Back a couple months ago I was contacted by Michelle from JuniperEarth.  She mentioned her shower bombs—the shower counterpart to bath bombs.  All natural and scented with essential oils.  I was intrigued—I’m a sucker for products scented with essential oils!

Even a shower can feel this good (stockphoto)

Most people don’t realize how important it is to use products scented with essential oils rather than synthetic fragrances. Besides a usually nicer, more natural smell, you don’t need to worry about essential oils containing phthalates (possible carcinogens  and endocrine disruptors linked to reproductive development problems) which may be lurking in the synthetics.   

How does a shower bomb work?  You place one in the shower (I recommend on a shelf to guard against slipperiness) and the steam starts to dissolve the salts, releasing the fragrance.  Mmmmm!  So far I’ve used one shower bomb which lasted me three showers (though my much slower husband would probably just get one shower in).

Bath Luxury (stockphoto–wish it were me)

Years ago… I think it was before I had kids, I used to go the bath route.  Sometimes bubbles, sometimes wine, always candles and good scents.  We even put in special mood lighting when the bath was remodeled. 

Perhaps in a few more years, I’ll go back to lounging again!  Right now, it’s more like shower quick, then on to something productive.  But (fireworks & cheering), these shower bombs help me get the best of both worlds—speed and relaxation in a cloud of fragrant steam!

  149. I try not to do new year’s resolutions, because if I perceive myself as having “failed,” I give up. When there’s something I want to work on, I try to just work on it then and there and not make a big deal out of it (thus, if I don’t quite meet my expectations, I can soldier on and keep trying, rather than giving up). That said, I would like to work on purchasing more “ingredients” compared to prepared foods (but the fact that I made that decision close to January 1st is coincidental).

  150. I switched to a vegan diet, and my husband has given up eating meat and dairy in the home. I’m also drinking at least 2 glasses of water every morning when I wake up, before I do anything else. I’m already noticing a difference in how I feel!
