Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda)

Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda)
Sodium Bicarbonate or 'Baking Soda' as it is commonly known has literally hundreds of uses, most of which have very little to do with baking! In Bath Bombs, Baking Soda is not only partially responsible for the fizzing effect but also when added to bath water it acts to soften the skin. It also makes a great addition to body, face and scrubs as it gently softens, smooths and exfoliates the skin.
It can also be added to Shampoos and Conditioners where it enhances the cleansing effect of the shampoo - particularly effective for greasy build up from styling products and conditioners.
