Banish aches and colds with bath bombs infused with ginger, rosemary, and eucalyptus.

There’s nothing like a hot bath when you’re feeling run down or under the weather. These bath bombs are designed to heal achy flus and sniffly colds with ginger powder to increase circulation, while rosemary and eucalyptus essential oils open the respiratory passage and sooth sore muscles.

I have a passion for holistic living and I’m a super-avid DIYer.
