Pregnancy and Wholesale Bath Bombs with Certain Essential Oils

Some essential oils can cause contractions, which is a scary thought. Avoid bath bombs with clove, cinnamon, rosemary, clary sage, bitter almond, basil, juniper berry, nutmeg, mustard, and thyme red. Safe essential oils for pregnant women include but are not limited to lavender, ylang-ylang, chamomile, geranium, ginger, eucalyptus, lime, sandalwood, and tea tree oil. These are just partial lists, so ask essential oil experts or your physician for a list of safe essential oils for pregnancy. 

With or Without Fizzy Bombs, Don't Run the Water Too Hot

Don’t bathe for long periods of time

Some women report having urinary tract infections (UTIs) or even yeast infection after a few times of using harsh oils in the tub. This can be triggered by the introduction of foreign substances due to a prolonged stay in the tub. There’s no really universally advised length of time to soak in a bathtub, but a good guess would be around 15 to 20 minutes. If you experience itching and dryness after using harsh oils in the tub, you should consult with your physician. Wholesale bath bombs are much more soothing and less irritating even to sensitive skin. 

Be careful in the tub!

Fizzy bombs leave tubs a bit slippery since they give out a soapy substance and they also have nourishing oils. Be careful when stepping out of the tub to avoid falling. If you have your husband or someone else in the house, ask for help when getting out of the tub. Grab something for support to help you balance your step.

Final notes: If you’re unsure of the safety of fizzy bombs or any product at all, it’s best to ask your doctor or midwife first. You should also take note of what your body tells you. If during the bath you get itchy and your skin feels irritated in some areas, consider stopping your dip in the water. Monitor your body temperature and heart rate as well. If you feel anything funny or out of place like feeling dizzy, step out of the tub.
