WWR Article Summary (tl;dr) An amazing nine year old Massachusetts girl has her own bath bomb business! She promotes her bath products through an Instagram page and a YouTube channel under the name Hannah Grace BeYOUtiful.
Hannah Grace Walsh, donning a light pink sweater and a pink bow Sunday used her hands to mix ingredients for one of her new bath bombs called birthday cake.
“My dad thought I could make these and it worked,” she said.
Hannah is nine years old and promotes her products through an Instagram page and a YouTube channel under the name Hannah Grace BeYOUtiful. The mixture of essential oils, baking soda and a few other ingredients is packed into a mold and dried. The resulting ball fizzes and dissolves when put into water.
Hannah added purple, blue, red and green salt dyed with food coloring to give the effect of sprinkles on the bath bomb. The scent of vanilla filled the air in the kitchen, which turned into her workshop.
Asked about her favorite part of the process, Hannah said “When we get to mold them.” She hand-packed the mixture into three round molds.
Hannah admitted she doesn’t do it all on her own, but “I have help from my family.” That could be helping to shoot videos with her iPad or helping to decide what scents should be combined for a product.
“It’s a family thing,” said Grace, Hannah’s mother. She said her son John, 12, also helps out.
She might need the help after Grace’s co-worker requested an order of 50 bath bombs for a bridal shower, but they may not need to be finished until June.
Hannah’s products are available at Elements of Style salon on Hemlock Street and Hippo on Purchase Street.
