How to Use a Spring Bath Bomb?
To use a butterfly spring bath bomb, you must place it under running hot water for about 30 seconds before placing it in your tub or sink, making sure to not let them touch the bottom of the tub or sink. You should then place it in your running water until it starts to fizz. Then, allow the bath bomb to dissolve into the water.
I also have a rose-scented bath bomb tutorial if you’d like to visit it. If you like to take showers, try your hand at making shower steamers. I have two variations on steamers, a rose & ylang ylang scented and sweet orange.
