Roundup: Bath bombs

By Columbus Alive
From the September 27, 2012 edition

Bath time becomes infinitely more appealing when temperatures drop. Soak in the water’s warmth no matter what the occasion with these three bath bombs. Drop one into the tub for a fizzy chemical reaction that dissolves the bomb into a silky smooth, scented world of wonderful. Just don’t try to snort them.
