There’s nothing like a soothing bath – and one of my favorite ways to get extra relaxed is by tossing in a bath bomb or two while I have a soak in the tub. Problem is, they can be SO expensive! My favorite bath bomb brand charges anywhere from $4.75 to $8.00 for a single bath bomb! I love to splurge, but if I want to use these on the regular, I needed to learn to DIY!! Of course, I’m going to share with you, so you can save on your next soak too! Here’s how to make the DIY Bath Bombs yourself for much less:
- 8 ounces Baking Soda for your skin and the bath water
- 4 ounces Cream of Tartar
- 4 ounces Corn Starch
- 4 ounces Epsom Salts
- 3/4 tsp. Water
- 2 tsp. Essential Oil for scent ( Lavender )
- 2 tsp. Coconut Oil
- Food coloring if you want colored bombs (Purple)
- A decoration, like dried flowers, non-toxic glitter, or sugar cake decorations.
- A small mini muffin pan
- Mix all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl (salt, baking soda, cornstarch and cream of tartar)
- In a separate small bowl, mix water, oil, and food coloring
- Now go ahead and mix wet and dry
- At this point, your mixture should resemble wet sand. Adding the food coloring helps you figure out if it’s well-mixed, an even color means a good mix. When you squeeze some in your fist, it should hold together. If it doesn’t, add water a few drops at a time until desired consistency is reached.
- tightly pack it down into your mold
- let dry 24 hours
- I recommend not removing from the mold until the mixture is completely dry. However, depending on your mold shape, you may have success with early removal so you can reuse the molds more quickly. Cupcake and Flat shapes work great removing them from the mold early.
