Ever heard of? Bombs, fizzies, fizzzers, or whatever you may call them, if you wanna spend some time in the tub, bath bombs are the best. All you have to do is fill up your tub, drop the bomb, and let it do the rest.
Watching a bath bomb explode into sweet smelling bubbly escape is one thing, just wait until you get in.
Instead of buying your bombs, why not try to make them yourself? Here is a great homemade bath bomb recipe that is definitely worth a try.
.~Homemade Bath Bombs~.
- 4 ounces (1/2 cup) of Baking Soda
- 8 ounces (1 cup) of Corn Starch
- 4 ounces (1/2 cup) of Coconut Oil
- 4 ounces (1/2 cup) of Citric Acid
- 3 Tablespoons of Argan Oil/ Almond Oil
- 2 Tablespoons of Water
- ½ a Bottle of the Essential Oil of your choice
- Natural food coloring is optional
First of all, get a large bowl. You first wanna mix all of you dry ingredients together thoroughly. Once that is done, add the wet ones. Using your hands, simply squish and squash everything together until you have nice, relatively thick consistency.
If you want a stronger smell, you can always add a little more essential oil. ½ a small bottle is usually good enough for me, but to each his own, right? Heck, if you really wanna go all out, you can even add dried petals, herbs, and the like.
To make you bath bombs a bit more attractive, add a bit of color, food coloring to be exact. If you want more than one color per batch, you can separate you bath bomb mixture into different bowls and add different food coloring in each.
Get your molds, press them in, and let them sit overnight. They should be hard and dry come morning. But just in case they aren’t, due to weather, climate, or what have you, simply pop them in the freezer until ready.
Once hardened, place your bath bombs in a container with a lid, a glass jar does rather nicely, and store until use.
- DIY bath bombs are perfect for personal use and are great for gifts too. Remember, Christmas is just around the corner, and this is definitely one homemade present that anyone would love. If you are truly feeling festive, you can even use xmas themed molds.
