I can’t think of anything more relaxing than a long hot bath so I’ve always enjoyed luxurious bath products like bath bombs, bubble bath, and scrubs. I just tend to have expensive taste so I can’t always afford my favorite bath bombs.

DIY BATH BOMB RECIPE
8 ounces Baking Soda
4 ounces Cream of Tartar
4 ounces Corn Starch
4 ounces Epsom Salts
3/4 tsp. Water
2 tsp. Essential Oil for scent
2 tsp. Coconut Oil
Food coloring if you want colored bombs
A decoration, like dried flowers, non-toxic glitter, or sugar cake decorations if desired.
Ideas for bath bomb molds: muffin pan, mini muffin pan, tennis balls cut in half, etc.
How to make your own DIY Bath Bomb Recipe:
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 mix your wet and dry ingredients.
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 at least 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.
Now go enjoy those awesome bath bombs you just made! Isn’t it so easy to make this DIY bath bomb recipe?
