DIY Bath Bombs!

Tamara Schmidt

We love bath bombs over here! My daughter is all about dropping those fizzy bombs into the tub but when you are purchasing them from store they can either be really expensive or filled with a bunch of nasty ingredients. Not to mention I am extremely sensitive to smell and if the scent is too overpowering I will end up with a headache.

Needless to say we started making our own bath bombs because I am all about trying to make things myself to save money and have it just the way we like it. It's also a really fun activity to do with your kiddo during this time of self isolation.

Here is our favorite recipe for DIY bath bombs!

1 Cup Baking Soda

1/2 Cup Citric Acid

1/2 Cup Epsom Salts

1/2 Cup of Corn Starch OR Arrowroot powder

2 TBS of Coconut Oil (or an oil of your choice)

3 TBS of water (in a spray bottle is best if you have access to one)

30-50 Drops of Essential Oils of your choice, we used a lavender blend that we love. I DO NOT recommend using cinnamon, clove or tea tree especially in high amounts.

Coloring of your choice if you wish to make them colored. We just used food coloring.

Check out this video as my daughter and I walk your through making these super easy bath bombs!!

Directions: 

Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl.

Add the melted coconut oil and mix again.

SLOWLY add the water. This is why I say a spray bottle is best because if you add the water too quickly your entire mixture will start foaming. Mix until the mixture is the consistency of wet sand.

Add the essential oils and your coloring if you are using it and mix again. 

Press your mixture into a silicone mold and let dry for several hours. How long they need to dry for will depend on how big your molds are. 

Once they are dry pop them out and it's bath time!!

I have included some Amazon Affiliate links for your convenience however you may be able to find most of these ingredients at your local grocery store or drug store.
