How to use a bath bomb

Lush invented the bath bomb in the late 80s in a garden shed in England, and we haven't stopped innovating them since. These fizzing, popping tub treats have been a fan favorite for years, thanks to a blend of bold colors, mood-boosting scents and all kinds of fun extras like confetti, plastic-free glitter, secret messages and so much more. But how exactly do you use one? Never fear: the bath bomb is probably one of our easiest-to-master packaging-free products. Just follow the four-step guide below and you'll be on your way to luxurious relaxation.


Fill your tub with water that's comfortable to the touch. You should be able to dip your hand into the water and leave it there comfortably for up to 10 seconds.


Make sure you don't fill your tub straight to the top—you could lose some of your beautiful bath bomb water when you get in.


Drop in the handmade bath bomb of your dreams and enjoy the show. Some have hidden sparkle, a blend of colors, gorgeous fragrance and more. Watch the magic unfurl.


Get in and enjoy! Now's the perfect time to kick back, throw on a mask, put on a podcast and really take some time for yourself.
