Easy-Peasy Luscious Bath Bombs DIY!

Bath Bombs- one of b&b's favorite DIY projects! 

Hi, and thanks for checking out bubble & blume’s very first official blog! Here at b&b we strive to give you all sorts of great tips and ideas that we have collected over the years. First and foremost, we are lovers of all things skin and fun! So let's dive right in and give the Easy Peasy Luscious Bath Bomb a try!

This recipe and idea was discovered when shopping for bath bombs and  me realizing "WOW, these are kind of expensive." And for someone like me who LOVES baths, I thought, "hmmm why can’t I just make my own?!?!"

After a little research and some online purchases via AMAZON, I was ready to get my bath bomb on.

I will insert the links for all the products at the bottom of this post 😊 (we like to make life easy)

The Easy-Peasy Luscious Bath Bomb recipe:

Ingredients:

½ cup baking soda

¼ cup corn starch

¼ cup Epsom salts

¼ citric acid

3-4 tsp of any oil you prefer- Coconut, grapeseed, avocado etc.

10-15 drops of essential oils- my favs are lavender and eucalyptus 

Food coloring or food safe dry pigment- 

Tools:

1. Bath bomb molds- I suggest anything made from silicone which makes it easier for the bombs to pop out. However, I have used everything from cupcake tins to small bowls. You can improvise with the molds and not spend a ton of money.

2. 2 medium-sized bowls

3. Wisk- or I use my hand but with a latex or glove since it can get a little messy.

4. Optional tools if you have the kiddos helping-  get an eye dropper to slowly add liquids

The Process:

  1. Combine all the dry ingredients in one of the bowls.
  2. Combine all your wet ingredients in a 2nd small bowl.
  3. Either use the wisk or put glove on your mixing hand and slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry just a little at a time- while constantly mixing. You will notice the wet ingredients reacting with the dry if you add too fast (starts to bubble). You are looking for the consistency of wet sand. If the mixture is too wet, the bath bomb will expand and get puffy. This is not a deal breaker but you are trying to combine the mixture with a little moisture needed to get the “wet sand” consistency.
  4. Once you get the correct consistency, you firmly add your mixture to whatever mold you choose- pack that baby nice and tight! 
  5. You can leave the mixture in the molds to dry out over night, or if you want to use sooner, put them in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Once your bath bombs are dry or frozen, you are ready to run that hot bath, pour a nice glass of whatever you fancy, possibly light a candle, and enjoy your Easy Peasy Luscious Bath Bombs! Have Fun Bubble Babes!
