Ingredients in bath bombs may irritate sensitive skin, causing redness, itching, or rash, and the irritation may persist long after you drain the tub. The resulting changes in normal bacteria levels can cause irritation or even infections. Most bath bombs contain a combination of sodium bicarbonate and citric acid, which neutralize each other when mixed with water. However, they generally contain other ingredients that can be irritating or potentially harmful.
All that irritates, hinders, or inflames your skin can cause symptoms such as redness, swelling, burning and itching. Allergies, irritating, your genetic makeup, and some diseases and problems of the immune system can cause rashes, hives, and other skin conditions.

Stainless Steel Bath Bomb Molds
4 cups baking soda
2 cups citric acid
1 oz. oat flour
4 oz. cacao butter

In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients.
Add the cocoa butter to a small heat container and fragrances and stage in the microwave for 30-60 seconds. Add honey and oat honey fragrance oil, oatmeal extract to melted butter. Use a spoon to completely mix the ingredients together. Let it cool for some time.
Add the liquid mixture to your dry mixture. Use your hands to fully mix the ingredients together.
Add a pinch of oatmeal to the bottom of one of the halves of the molds before adding the bath bomb mixture. Press it tightly, so it won't break easily.
Fill the other half while mounding the mixture in the center.
Pack the mixture into each side of the mold then press the two sides together. Ideally, let it stay in the mold overnight, then lightly tap around the mold with a spoon to very carefully open and remove the bath bomb.
