Reasons bath bombs with essential oils are better than fragrance oils

Are you looking for a way to make your bath time more luxurious? If you’re a first time buyer, you may be wondering what the difference is between bath bombs with essential oils and those with fragrance oils. Keep reading to find out why bath bombs with essential oils are the better choice for your next bath!


People use bath bombs for a variety of reasons and they may pick their bath bomb based on the scent. Your skin can absorb oils so it may be beneficial to find what oil is best for you in your bath bomb. Essential oils are natural, aromatic compounds found in plants, flowers, and trees. They are extracted from the plant and used for their therapeutic benefits. Fragrance oils are synthetic and created to mimic the smell of natural essential oils. Let’s look at the  differences between essential oils and fragrance oils.

Essential Oils

  • Aromatherapy benefits
  • Relieves pain and inflammation
  • All natural

Essential oils are known for their aromatherapy benefits. Different essential oils can be used to help reduce stress, improve sleep, and even boost your mood. They can also be used to help reduce pain and inflammation in the body. Additionally, essential oils are all natural, so you don’t have to worry about any harsh chemicals or artificial ingredients. You should never apply an essential oil directly to the skin it should be mixed with a carrier oil. Frizz Bomb Bath Bombs are made with essential oils and we always use a carrier oil to help moisturize your skin.

Fragrance Oils

  • Artificial
  • Potential skin irritations
  • No aromatherapy benefits

Fragrance oils are artificial and contain a mix of chemicals and synthetic ingredients. These oils can be harsh on the skin and may cause skin irritations. Although these oils can smell amazing, unfortunately they don’t have any of the aromatherapy benefits that essential oils do.


When it comes to bath bombs, essential oils are the clear winner. Not only do they provide aromatherapy benefits, but they are also all natural and help reduce pain and inflammation in the body. So, if you’re looking for a luxurious bath experience, be sure to choose bath bombs with essential oils!
