Today’s Fabulous Find is an all-natural body product from one of my favorite indie shops, Olive Owl Organics in Oak Park (1101 Lake Street). If you are looking for the perfect way to unwind, simply step into the powder room, draw a bath, and pop a bath bomb into the water. You’ll love what happens next!

I used to think I didn’t have time for baths (showers were it), but I was converted after feeling the immediate effects of these heavenly spheres. Bath bombs are like the broccoli of bath and beauty products. Oh so good for you.

Cynthia Orrico hand makes the bath bombs with all-natural ingredients, like sea salt, which relax your muscles and draw out toxins. Skin loving oils simultaneously moisturize your skin. Oh, and they are so fragrant!  

Fun alert: Bath bombs fizz or bubble when they make contact with water. You’ll feel as carefree as a child – stress seems to melt away along with the bath bomb.

From Olive Owl:

This big gem has the power of fizzle, the aroma of the seasons and the moisture of a spoonful of oils. This bath bomb adds a touch of moisture, no greasy mess, so you can relax in the tub, effortlessly. They come in seven different aromatic choices:

Stress Be Gone Lavender
Juicy Citrus
Almond Biscotti
Vanilla Mint Bliss
Ahh Cool Cucumber
Orange Whip
Berry Fruit Cup

Go ahead, treat yourself (they’re only $5.00 each)! Or treat a friend. I’ve bought these often for friends and family who are feeling a little stressed. I swear by them.

Stop back next week for another Fabulous Find or for Fashion Inspiration from friends and neighbors. I’ll see you around town and in the shops!

Marion, If you liked taking a bubble bath as a kid, you'll love this grown-up version for adults!
