Sometimes, you just need to escape from the world. Everyone has their methods for relaxing and unwinding. I was recently introduced to the concepts of bath bombs by @ebrewspgh (I know, pretty late to the game). There is one particular brand she showed me that is absolutely amazing, in scent, color, and the fact that once they dissolve, there is a surprise inside! So when I was given the opportunity to review a book about making your own bath bombs, how could I refuse? The bigger surprise came when I found out that the book was written by the two young women who create my favorite fizzers, the founders of Da Bomb bath fizzers.
Isabel and Caroline Bercaw were only 10 and 11 when they started making and selling their bath bombs and now, only 6 years later, employ over 150 community members through their business. This book showcases not only their creative flair, but their excitement for sharing the art of making bath products. And this book is gorgeous. There are so many bright colors and full page photographs that really heighten each bath bomb’s appearance. The recipes are surprisingly simple to follow, and they provide information about retailers who carry each of the materials needed, which is extremely helpful when crafting.
There are so many recipes included in this book, ranging through a variety of scents, colors, and shapes. My only criticism would be that the recipes all started to sound the same after a while, with very little variation between then. That being said, by having so many slight variations, it can lead to a spark of inspiration by the reader to go beyond what is presented within the pages.
I seriously cannot wait to sit down and make some bath bombs of my own.
Overall, 4/5 moose
