Lime Fizzy Foaming Bath

Lime Fizzy Foaming Bath

Christina Clark, a writer from Green Daily, posted a review of our Fizzy Foaming Bath last week.  Green Daily’s website covers all things eco-friendly.  Christina says that, “Hothouse Botanicals put the fun of a fizzy bath bomb in a powder form. You can add as much as you like to your bath to fizz to your personal preference. And while the products smell wonderful and work as expected, the extra nice part are all the natural ingredients…. And did I mention how good they smell? The Vanilla Lime combo is just amazing. The lime is just invigorating. And the Bourbon Geranium is a nice, spicy rose scent. The Lavandin Litsea is a lavender and lemon scent that is both relaxing and fun at the same time.”
