Falling in Love with Baths and the Canadian Bath Bomb Company

I can be in and out of the shower and out the door in 10 minutes flat. I'm a shower gal through and through... or so I thought. Something about the rush to class/rush to this meeting/rush to that meeting, rush/rush/rush lifestyle requires some relaxation. There's something about lazing around in a tub of hot water that puts me so at peace...and to add to that experience... a bath bomb. 

Since four bath bombs from the Canadian Bath Bomb Company landed on my doorstep, I've actually forced myself to take a bath (instead of shower) and I haven't really looked back. I think I'll be taking one or two baths a week now that the weather's getting colder. 

The bath bombs came tightly wrapped in bubble wrap and everything was intact by the time I'd opened it (even after I dropped one on the floor). Each bath bomb is approximately the size of a tennis ball and I prefer to use one bath bomb per bath for a full aromatic experience. I received four of the many scents available on the etsy site. 

I'm terrible at describing fragrances but what I can say is that all four of these scents are strong but not sneeze-worthy strong, invigorating, last for my entire 15-20 minute bath and then some and smell absolutely delightful. As for body-care properties, regardless of scent, all of the bath bombs contain a mixture of organic shea butter, organic cocoa butter and organic canola oil to leave skin feeling soft and supple. 

Rosemary Lavender (herbal-floral) - Last week, I had a cold and decided to take a bath hoping that the scent of one of the bombs would help me relax. The Rosemary Lavender scent cleared my sinuses better than ginger tea and I pretty much K.O.'d after stepping out of the tub. 

Ruby Grapefruit  (fruity) - This scent is new to the Canadian Bath Bomb Co. for fall, emerging from a customer suggestion (talk about stellar customer service!). The grapefruit scent is bright and fresh. 

Mandarin Pomander  (spicy-warm) - According to Jackie (the owner of CBBC), this is a staple fall scent since 2009 and I can certainly see (and smell) why. This bath bomb has an almost cinnamon-like warmth to it that makes me crave pumpkin spice lattes. 

Lemon Verbena (citrus) - Last but not least, my favourite scent of the bunch. I'm always down for soaking myself in a citrus scented bath product. Citruses are always quite sharp and fresh - quite awaken

Considering Lush bath bombs are around $4.95 to $6.95, the Canadian Bath Bomb Co. products fall right in the middle, competitively priced at $5.69 with discounts for bulk orders. 

Yep, the Canadian Bath Bomb Co. has rekindled my love for baths. There's nothing about a shower that compares to soaking in a vat of deliciousness...

Baths or showers - which do you prefer?
