Understanding Bath Bombs

Bath bombs are a delight. They typically comprise baking soda, citric acid, essential oils, and natural botanicals. When dropped into a tub filled with warm water, a bath bomb fizzes and dissolves, releasing its aromatic and skin-nourishing ingredients. The immersive experience that bath bombs create stems mainly from the essential oils they contain. 

New Miuz uses aromatherapists' expertise to carefully select and blend these oils, ensuring that each bath bomb promotes relaxation and endows well-being advantages. This aligns with the values of promoting a calm mind and a healthy body. Aromatherapy benefits can range from reducing anxiety and stress to invigorating the senses. Our family-owned Californian business's handcrafted approach means that each bath bomb is unique and meets our high ethical and cruelty-free standards. 

Choosing The Right Bath Bomb For You

Choosing The Right Bath Bomb For You

When integrating the tranquil experience of a bath bomb into your self-care routine, selecting the right one for your needs is key. With countless options available, here's what you should consider to ensure you enjoy every moment of your bath:

Ingredients And Benefits

Look for bath bombs with all-natural ingredients to promote a healthy body and nourish your skin. New Miuz’s bath bombs are free from parabens and other harsh chemicals, making them a perfect choice for those who prioritize skin wellness. Each bath bomb is enriched with essential oils carefully chosen by aromatherapists to provide specific benefits: relaxing, energizing, or detoxifying your body.

Scent Preferences

Aromatherapy plays a significant role in the therapeutic aspect of a bath bomb experience. Decide what mood you wish to set. Would you like a calming lavender, a refreshing citrus, or a romantic rose scent? The natural fragrances from our ethical blends ensure a serene and peaceful bath time, which is vital for calming the mind.

Skin Sensitivity

It's important to consider how your skin reacts to certain products. New Miuz provides detailed ingredient lists for our handcrafted bath bombs, ensuring you can avoid any potential irritants. Since aromatherapy experts endorse our products, you can trust that even people with sensitive skin can find a bath bomb that's gentle yet effective.

Ethical Practices

Commitment to cruelty-free and ethically sourced ingredients is not just a trend; it's a way of valuing our planet and all its inhabitants. By choosing New Miuz, you're enriching your wellness journey and supporting sustainable practices and family-owned businesses in California that prioritize the environment and ethical manufacturing.

Aesthetic And Experience

The visual appeal of a bath bomb can enhance the overall experience. New Miuz’s colors and textures transform your bath into a magical moment of escape. As each bath bomb fizzes and disperses, it's an immersive sensory event, turning a simple daily routine into an indulgent treat.

Step-by-Step Guide To Using A Bath Bomb

Using a bath bomb is an effortless and enjoyable process. Follow these steps to transform your regular bath into an aromatherapy oasis:

Step 1: Fill Your Bathtub With Water

Start by plugging your bathtub and filling it with warm water. The temperature should be comfortable to touch, not too hot or cold. A cozy warmth is ideal to help the ingredients in the bath bomb dissolve effectively and release their aromas.

Step 2: Unwrap The Bath Bomb

Carefully remove any packaging from your New Miuz bath bomb. Since our products are handcrafted, handle them carefully to prevent crumbling before use.

Step 3: Enter The Bathtub

Before you release the bath bomb into the water, get into the tub. This way, you can fully experience the fizz and the burst of essential oils as they envelop your senses.

Step 4: Drop The Bath Bomb In Water

Hold your bath bomb and gently place it on the water's surface. It will start fizzing and releasing wonderful scents and skin-conditioning oils, infusing your bath with the healing properties of natural ingredients.

Step 5: Relax And Enjoy

Once the bath bomb is fully dissolved, lean back and relax. Take deep breaths to allow the aromatherapy benefits to work their magic on your mind and body. The natural ingredients in our ethically sourced products will soothe and hydrate your skin, making it feel soft and rejuvenated.

Step 6: Take Your Time

There's no hurry. Bathe for at least 20-30 minutes to ensure you receive the full benefits of the healing ingredients and essential oils. New Miuz products are designed with your wellness in mind, and the longer you soak, the more benefits you reap.

Step 7: Rinse Off If Desired

After your bath, you may choose to rinse off in the shower. This step is optional and based on personal preference. Some like to rinse off any residue, while others prefer to let their skin absorb the full benefits of the oils and butter.

Step 8: Pat Yourself Dry

When you're ready to step out of the bath, do so carefully, as the oils can make the tub slippery. Gently pat yourself dry with a towel, allowing your skin to retain the moisture and scents from the bath bomb.

Step 9: Moisturize Your Skin

For an enhanced experience and to lock in hydration, consider using a natural body lotion or oil after your bath. This can help to prolong the softness and fragrance of your skin throughout the day or night.

Optimal Water Temperature For Bath Bombs

The right temperature can significantly enhance the aromatherapy experience and skin benefits of New Miuz's bath bombs, allowing the natural oils and fragrances to disperse effectively throughout the bath.

Ideally, the water should be warm to the touch, typically around 37°C to 38°C (98°F to 100°F). This temperature range is close to the body's natural temperature, making it comfortable for soaking without causing overheating or being too cold to relax. Warm water helps open the skin's pores, ensuring that the essential oils and other natural ingredients can be easily absorbed, promoting optimal hydration and nourishment.

  • Higher Temperature: In contrast, using too hot water can cause the bath bomb to dissolve too quickly, reducing your time to enjoy its effects and potentially irritating sensitive skin. 
  • Lower Temperature: On the other hand, using too cold water will not allow the bath bomb to dissolve properly, hindering the release of its scented oils and therapeutic properties.

Safety First: Allergies And Skin Sensitivity

As a reputable company, New Miuz ensures that all bath bombs are created with your health and wellness as a priority. However, even natural ingredients can cause reactions in some individuals. To provide a safe and enjoyable experience with bath bombs, perform a patch test before use. Apply a small amount of the bath bomb's contents to a patch of skin on your arm. Wait for at least 24 hours. If you notice any redness, itching, or discomfort, refrain from using the product in your bath. Remember that 'natural' doesn't always mean 'non-allergenic.' Natural essential oils and botanicals can still trigger allergic reactions in some people.


Scent Preferences

Final Thoughts

At New Miuz, we fuse heritage wisdom with modern well-being, crafting each product with an unwavering commitment to promoting a calm mind and a healthy body. Remember, the ultimate goal is to cleanse and create a sanctuary for relaxation and self-reflection.
