  1. Hi Rita,
    Thank you for sharing all your talents, fun ideas and posts! Whenever I look at your site, it makes for a great day!
    I do have a question though regarding the updated recipe for the bath bombs. I am sorry that I am a bit confused but are these also usable in the bathtub or are they designated for the shower too? Have a lovely day.
    Kind regards.

    1. Sherrie, the updated recipe is for bath bombs and they are for the bath. The shower bombs are for the shower. The shower bombs have way more essential oil in them than the bath bombs. That is why you would not want to use them in your bath water. Hope this helps. Have a great day!

  2. Rita, I’m sorry to be so dumb, but how do you use it in the shower? I’ve never heard of a bath or shower bomb, so please explain the luxury to me. They sound wonderful. Thanks much,
