I’ve been wanting to make my own bath bombs forever and I did it! I’m passing them around the neighborhood for Valentine’s and I’m planning to be the favorite 🙂
What you’ll need:
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup Epsom salts
- 1 tsp. water
- 8-10 drops essential oil
- 3 tsp. oil (olive oil)
- natural food coloring (I used 1 T beet juice)
- bath bomb mold
You can buy natural food coloring but I simply used a T of the juice of cooked beets I had on hand and it worked perfectly to make such a pretty pink! I love using Rose, Geranium, Lavender and Passion essential oils but really you can use just about anything!
Act quickly and place them in the bath molds. I didn’t have any on hand so I used a bundt cake pan I had. It worked alright but I’m sure that a mold would be a TON easier! Let dry 4 or 5 hours in the mold and boom it’s done!
I love it because it seriously does fizz in the bath and is made of all natural ingredients. Often the bath bombs you buy in stores are totally deceiving and have lots of chemicals in them anyway. This is incredibly easy, cheap and a fun DIY project with the kiddos!!
