How to Make Your Own Bath Bomb

Bath Bomb with Essential Oils

 

Bath Bombs recipe with essential oilsThere 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)

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.

Boredom Buster, make your own books!

This was such a fun project for my kids! They got creative and had a chance to use their brains while thinking it was all fun, I’m sneaky like that. 😉

I found these awesome books at Target in the One Spot, but just in case they don’t have them at your Target, here are some that are similar, but in fun colors, which I really like.

Another great thing about these is that there aren’t a lot of products needed. Just the books, markers, crayons, or colored pencils and your imagination!

Matchbox Car Races, Thrifty Summer Fun

Looking for something fun and unusual to do with the kids today? We’ve got you covered with just the thing!  All you need is a squirt bottle and matchbox cars.  So easy and fun!

Line up your cars at the start line and have the kids race to see who can get their cars ahead by squirting them with water.  Doesn’t work very well unless you have the water bottle on the straight shot as it needs the force to get the car moving.
