Homemade Bath Bombs {DIY}

I've been trying to make the most of our shelter in place time by trying new recipes, crafts
and projects that have been on my someday list. I have a pretty long list and it's always fun
to try something new, especially when the project or recipe turns out just as you hoped it
would! Today we're making homemade bath bombs.

I've been using Young Living essential oils exclusively for a little over a year now and I
love learning new ways to get rid of toxic beauty and cleaning products in our home and
replace them with natural products.  (You can read more about why I love Young Living here.)

Homemade bath bombs are all natural, they smell amazing and using them is a nice way
to pamper yourself! We can all use a little self care about now!

Madison and I love to make homemade bath bombs. She's an expert at molding them together!
Sometimes we add soap sprinkles or dried lavender that I purchased from our local lavender
farm. You can also add coloring if you like, but I prefer a more natural look.

Homemade bath bombs are fun to make and even more fun to use.
Give them a try!

Homemade Bath Bombs with Essential Oils

1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup Epsom salts
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup Citric Acid
3/4 T water
1/4 - 1/3 cup almond oil or melted coconut oil (I start with 1/4 cup and add more as needed)
12-15 drops of essential oils (Lavender, Stress Away, Gentle Baby are some of my favorites)
Bath Bomb molds 
dried lavender or soap sprinkles (optional)

In a medium bowl whisk together all of the dry ingredients.
In a separate small bowl, mix together the wet ingredients.

Add the wet to the dry ingredients VERY SLOWLY. If you pour it in too quickly you will
activate the citric acid, which creates the fizzing afffect. Mix until combined and the
ingredients look like wet sand.

Fill each half of the mold, packing the mixture in until it's overflowing. Press the halves
together and firmly hold for a few seconds. If it does not hold together you may need to
put it back into the bowl and add a little more almond oil. Gently pull the mold apart to
remove the bath bomb. Lay the bath bombs on a parchment lined baking sheet and let
them dry for at least 24 hours before enjoying in the tub.

To use - add one bath bomb to the tub. Relax and enjoy!

This recipe yields 3 large bath bombs.

  2. So you are thinking to have Bath Bomb packaging created but then you are thinking of spending carefully and wisely. There can be many reasons to why you are taking such an initiative.But in saying that, you need to be mindful that you do not compromise your packaging options just because you were trying to save some cash. You need to be wise about it. But spend well on the bath bomb packaging at the same time. Because compromising on your packaging is like putting your brand’s reputation and product to jeopardy.
