How to use bath bombs, bubble bars and bath oils

Love dipping into deep mounds of cloud-like bubbles but hate leaving a trail of packaging behind you? Get the lowdown on how to use Lush’s classic naked products including bath bombs, bubble bars and bath oils, with this handy guide.

Bubble bars: Let's get ready to crumble!

From big, boldly scented bubbles to more subtle suds, naked bubble bars are an oh so easy way to indulge in a bubble bath. Bubble bars shake up the notion of your traditional liquid bubble bath, taking many different colours and forms to create a unique experience. Helen Ambrosen, Lush Product Inventor and Co-founder says: "Creating solid bubble bars turned into an art form. You could make all sorts of shapes, all sorts of sizes, but also you didn't need a synthetic preservative."

From candy sweet, fresh and green, or dark and earthy, there’s a bubble bar for all the family. Simply crumble the bar under running water, swish, and relax in lashings of trouble-free bubbles. Most bubble bars are perfect for one blissful bath, so you don’t need to worry about using too much or too little.

Bigger bars, like The Comforter and Blue Skies And Fluffy White Clouds, are good for more than one use, so crumble as much as you crave under the tap and store the rest in a cool, dry place ready for when the mood takes you. The more you use, the bigger the bubbles!

For a bar that lasts a little longer, a reusable bubble bar such as Big Bottle Of Calm is the answer. These can be twirled in your bath water until it is brimming with beautiful bubbles, then whipped out of the water and into a cool, dry place ready for you to summon splendid suds again.

Sometimes you just need to add a drop of fruity goodness to your bath time, and our Raspberry Blower bubble stick is just the ticket! As your bath runs, swirl it in the hot water to build mounds of bubbles before pulling it out and holding it up to your mouth to blow bubbles through it. 

Bath bombs: Izzy Wizzy, let's get fizzy!

If bubbles aren’t your bag but you’re fanatical about fizz, perhaps a bath bomb is for you? These solid orbs packed with beautifully scented essential oils, lustres and kaleidoscopic colours will transport you to new dimensions. Get lost in thick forests or jetted deep into the cosmos, all whilst relaxing in your bathtub. Opt for Goddess if you're in the mood for something seductive; its velvety rich and stimulating scent of oudh and jasmine will transport your mind to a place far more exotic, or to snuggle down in the tub with cosy clouds of cocoa and vanilla, look no further than Butterball

Once you are ready to embark on a bathtime adventure, simply run your bath and climb aboard. Place your chosen bath bomb in the water and get lost in its whirling, twirling wonder. Why not celebrate your out of this world experience by creating your own bath art?

Bath oils: 5 minutes peace

Bath oils are made for tranquil baths; just pop it in the tub then sink into deeply soothing waters, unwind knots that have gathered through the day, embrace hydrated skin, breathe in aromatic essential oils and let the day’s tension fall from your shoulders.

Wrapped in a soft muslin cloth, Ceridwen's Cauldron transforms your bathwater into a soft, oaty and milky paradise that Cleopatra would be envious of, and releases celestial scents. Alternatively, for a burst of the outside inside, turn to Floating Island for a bath oil infused melt, that swaddles your water with scents of rose and jasmine. If you don't use these up in one go, simply tuck it away somewhere dry and out of sunlight, ready to use again another day.
