DIY Bath Bombs

It's been awhile since I've done a DIY. I have been itching to get crafty again. I love spending a weekend afternoon working on something fun. I decided to try out a beauty do it yourself for bath bombs. I love a trip to Lush but thought it would be fun to try to recreate that bath time experience. Costing a fraction of the price and able to be customized however you fancy.


I followed this video from Rachel Talbott. I love watching her DIY beauty videos and have tried a couple of her tips for at home pampering. After watching the video, I made an Amazon order and picked up the rest of the ingredients at my local drugstore. It was super easy, and now I am stocked up to make batches & batches of bath bombs. I used a 6 half circle mold which works out well since I usually end up breaking Lush bombs in half anyway!

Recipe for 6 Half-Sphere Bath Bombs:
Dry:
1 cup Baking Soda
1/2 cup Citric Acid
1/2 cup Epsom Salt

Wet:
3 tsp Almond Oil
1 tsp Water

From there you combine your wet ingredients to the dry slowly to reduce premature bubbling. To half of the mixture, to make three of the molds, I added 2 tablespoons of ground coffee for the energizing bombs, and for the other three, I added 2 drops of lavender essential oil and 2 drops peppermint essential oil for the aromatherapy bombs. I am going to pick up some clay, dried lavender, and dried eucalyptus to add, but it worked very well with just the essential oil. I accidentally doubled the wet ingredients, so as my bombs were drying they started to expand. I was worried they would lose all of their fizz, but they still activated when placed under the faucet. It also made them look like delicious scoops of ice cream! I am going to have to whip up another batch or two.
