It’s important to give others (and yourself!) the gift of self care all year round, but particularly during the hectic winter months. Local business Bombash & Earley helps prevent you from pouring from an empty cup this season.
Founded by Danielle and Tim Bombash in 2015, Bombash & Earley makes and sells all-natural skin care products, such as lip balms, hand sanitizers, bath bombs, soaps, and moisturizers. Utilizing his knowledge of essential oils, Tim began creating the products in their basement and the couple sold them at farmer’s markets on the weekends. The products quickly developed a following and the Bombashes expanded to their current showroom on East McMurray Road.
Bombash & Earley’s promise to its customers is minimal ingredients, maximum results. All products use 100% plant-based ingredients and are handmade, cruelty- and preservative-free, sustainable, and most importantly, effective. All formulations go through rigorous trials to ensure they provide the desired results. Bombash & Earley also produces a line of CBD products to help promote overall wellness.
Bombash & Earley creates seasonal products and will have a full line for the holidays. Holiday favorite scents include candy cane, peppermint swizzle stick, sugar plum, frost-covered pine, pomegranate, brandy and berries, spearmint vanilla, sparkling ginger, and many more. The products make great stocking stuffers for adults and kids – they make a special line for kids including bath bombs with toys inside. One of the favorite products for kids is the Superhero Bomb. The themed bath bomb has a surprise superhero or villain hiding inside. Once the bathwater has stopped fizzing, the special surprise is released. It’s an easy way to make bath time fun for kids.
In December, the showroom will host several “Santa’s Secret Shop” days, special days when kids can come in and shop for their parents. “As parents ourselves, we know it can be tough for kids to shop for their parents, friends, and other loved ones,” says Danielle Bombash. “We host Santa’s Secret Shop during the holidays so we can help kids pick out the right gifts for everyone on their list. Follow our Facebook page for the dates in 2022.”
Understanding the impact scents can have on mood, Bombash & Earley developed Mood-Enhancing Blends earlier this year, each with its own focus: Energize for vitality, energy, and motivation; Happy to increase blissful feelings, dreaminess, and inspiration; Balance to promote rejuvenation, mental focus, and stability; Calm for benefits including relaxation, comfort, and stress; and Uplift to provide invigoration, stimulation, and conscious unclenching. Pair these mood-boosting products with yoga poses to help achieve your desired mental benefits.
“When we launched the Mood-Enhancing Blends, we decided to partner with local business Lakeview Yoga Studio on a Let’s Get Moody mini-series on Facebook,” Danielle shares. “The series highlighted a different mental benefit and paired our Mood-Enhancing Blends with a yoga pose to help achieve the desired effect. We enjoy partnering with other local small businesses and organizations to help support our community and customers.”
Feeling grateful for the support they received from the community, they knew they wanted to give back.
“A primary focus of Bombash & Earley is wellness and teaching people about how to use natural, fun, and effective products in their everyday lives,” says Danielle. “We realized that we could use our platform and our products to also care for and support our community.”
The company works with businesses, individuals, and nonprofits to create custom scents and products for their events and gifts. The custom products make great client or employee gifts during the holidays. Bombash & Earley decided to take their customized products a step further by working with local causes and nonprofits to develop unique products for fundraising. Bombash & Earley sells the custom products on behalf of the charities, donating all proceeds from the custom products, as well as a percentage of all product sales on designated days.
“Thanks to Facebook and Instagram, Bombash & Earley has cultivated a large regional and national following,” Danielle remarks. “We’ve been able to leverage our following on these platforms to raise more funds for the causes we support and raise awareness. Facebook Groups, such as the South Hills Moms group, have been especially important to spreading the word about our company and the causes we support.”
In 2021, Bombash & Earley partnered with 412Thrive, which helps support breast cancer patients, to create their special product line, Sunflower Soul. The company worked with the Boys and Girls Club of Western Pennsylvania to create custom products for their Relax & Rise fundraiser. And they also supported the effort to locate missing person Kelsie Schelling.
