How to Make Your Own Bath Bomb

Bath Bomb with Essential Oils

Bath Bomb recipe

There is nothing, well almost nothing more relaxing than taking a long hot soak. My husband recently installed a jacuzzi tub in our master bath. At first I really didn’t think I would like it at all. I’m not that into baths. In fact my husband had to fill the tub for me and convinced me to get in. Taking a bath is one thing, but taking a bath with bubbles and with a bath bomb is just awesome. I’m pretty sure its the combination of the jacuzzi and the bath bomb, but it could’ve been the fact that the kids were somewhere else being taken care of by my hubby. Having no worries when you take a relaxing bath is in my opinion the best thing – total relaxment!

Recently I came across this awesome recipe on how to make your own bath bomb. Sure you can buy your own bath bombs. But do you really want something fizzing away under you and not knowing what is in it? Making your own is the safest bet to guarantee that there are no crazy chemicals in it that you need someone help you pronounce them. It also saves you a ton of money too! You can make natural and safe Bath Bombs for a small fraction of what you could buy them for! And it takes no time at all to make them, and just let them dry overnight to harden up is the only thing.

Save money and make your own Bath Bombs with your own fragrance from natural essential oils. With essential oils you can make a bath bomb for exactly what you need it for. make one for when you are sick, or a relaxing one that will help you sleep. You can even make one for a good pick me up with a clean crisp aroma. Make your own Bath Bomb ingredients

Ingredients:

  • 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

Procedure:

Mix all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl (salt, baking soda, cornstarch and cream of tartar)

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.

1-Using a color printer, print your flag file onto card stock. Make sure you are printing the file at “actual size” and not scaling it to fit the page (this will show up in your Acrobat settings when you print it).

2-Using scissors and/or a paper trimmer, trim your flags. The finished size of each flag is 7.5″ x 3″.

3-I used a scoring blade on my paper trimmer to score the flag at 3.75″ or the center of the flag. If you do not have a scoring blade, you can fold the flag in half and crease it at the center.

4-Open the flag and apply three pieces of double sided tape, as shown. Fold flag in half to affix together and apply pressure so it sticks.

How to peel an egg in 5 seconds or less, Peel an egg with a glass jar, kitchen hack, this is the coolest idea ever I can not wait to try it, Hard Boiled Eggs, Easter EggHow to peel an egg in less than 5 seconds with a glass jar

Are you ready for a crazy tip, that will make you scratch your head and make you think… hmmmm I have been peeling eggs wrong my whole life.  This kitchen tip is so simple, but will save you a ton of time. You can watch a video on how to peel an egg in less than 5 seconds with a jar here.

How to peel an egg in 5 seconds or less, kitchen hack, this is the coolest idea ever I can not wait to try itAll you need is a hard boiled egg, a glass jar or cup, some water and your muscles. Boil your eggs, once they are done drain the hot water off and fill the pot with cold ice water to try and cool the eggs down asap.  Let them sit a few minutes. Grab an egg, put it in a glass jar with about an inch of water in the bottom.  Cover the top of the jar with your hand or a lid. Now give the jar a shake, and swirl it at the same time.  The shell should break away from the egg and come off in a large piece. Leaving a whole shelled egg behind.  Like I said before…. Amazing right!

How to peel an egg in 5 seconds or less, kitchen hack, this is the coolest idea ever I can not wait to try it, Hard Boiled Eggs, Easter EggMake sure you add the water to the jar or the egg will break in half with the shell still on.  I am not sure why but sometimes even with the water the egg will not let the shell come free all the way. I am not sure if it has to do with the freshness of the eggs, or how long they have been cooked? Or maybe I am having a bad day and shake the poor little eggs to hard? The egg might be a mess and broken, but by golly shaking them like that is good therapy lol.  Either way this trick tends to work about 80% off the time, but it is not 100% efficient.

St Patricks Day Clover Stamp Craft, Easy DIY Shamrock Craft for kids, St. Patty's day craft idea, DIY, Kids, School party IdeaEasy Kids Crafts DIY: Clover Stamps

Make some easy and inexpensive clover stamps this St. Patrick’s Day season with nothing more than a window marker from your local dollar store or a bingo pen will work too. This is a wonderful hands on experience for kids, and a great way to create some simple St. Patrick’s Day décor. Here is how you can get started making your own!

  • Supplies needed:
    Scrap paper
    Green window marker ($1 at Dollar Tree)
    Brown crayons

As mentioned you can find the green window marker at Dollar Tree dollar store. They are typically sold in the crafting or office supplies aisle.

St Patricks Day Clover Stamp Craft, Easy DIY Shamrock Craft for kids, St. Patty's day craft idea, DIY, Kids, School party IdeaDirections:
1. Remove the cap of your green window marker. Press it firmly to the scrap paper, making four circles stacked closely together. It is easiest to make two dots next to each other, and then stack two more dots directly on top of them.
2. Allow the paint to dry.
3. Use your brown crayon or marker to create a stem on the clovers.

Use this method to craft inexpensive home décor or decorate St. Patrick’s Day greeting cards. You can even decorate windows with this method, just don’t add the stems. Gather your supplies and give these easy clover stamps a try!
