Why Use Lemongrass Bath Bombs?

Lemongrass essential oil is not one of the most popular oils to use in body care products, but maybe it should be!

This essential oil is extracted from the lemongrass plant and has the following beneficial properties:

  • Antifungal
  • Antibacterial
  • Antiinflammatory
  • Stress Reducing
  • Relieves Anxiety

French green clay is great for detoxifying the skin, as well as clarifying the skin by absorbing excess oil. The muted green color in these bath bombs comes from the green clay.

Epsom salts are known for helping aching muscles and adding magnesium.
