Spoiling oneself has different meanings for different people. Some like to buy two large cups of chocolate ice-creams and binge through FRIENDS, while some might go a little extra mile and book a leisure high-end spa and therapy session for themselves. Some people will just buy every food and every cosmetic and every cloth they want for themselves and treat themselves. And you know why is it good? Because you deserve it, darlings. You all deserve all the love and pampering in the world and who better to give it to you than you?
While all the extra leisure activities seem compelling, if you are someone who likes to be alone and have some me time, get yourself a good bath, with some fine wine and a good book and soft music, that is fine too. Because we are here to tell you how you can make yourself your very own DIY bath bombs at home!
Because let’s be honest bath bombs are a little way too expensive for such little balls aren’t they? So why spend your hard-earned money on exclusive store-bought bath bombs when you can make your bath bombs for much less price? With this elementary recipe, making bath bombs is pretty simple.
Almost all the recipes call for similar ingredients and in equal measurements. The crucial element to amazing bath bombs is citric acid, which is easy to find online. If online purchases aren’t your thing, you may be able to purchase citric acid from your local pharmacy.
These cute little bath bombs make perfect gifts for the people you love, to show how much you care for them. You can put both large or small ones in cellophane gift bags like—the ones you’d typically buy for cookies—or stack smaller ones in a wide-mouthed Mason jar. Make a few sets using different colors and add various essential oils for scents if you want to go all out for your loved ones.
Below are the natural bath bomb recipes:
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup citric acid
1/2 cup Epsom salt
1/2 cup cornstarch
3/4 tsp. water
2 tsp essential oil (lavender, eucalyptus, rose)
2 tsp oil (jojoba, sweet almond, coconut olive, or baby oil)
Few drops of food coloring.
Any Mold of your choice, such as regular or mini-muffin tins, candy pans, or round plastic molds specifically for bath bombs
Optional: You can also get dried flowers or sugar cake decorations, like flowers or stars
There you have it! Easy isn’t it? Who thought these things that you buy at the store at crazy prices are worth nothing at all. This is why DIY stuff is the best – cheap and way better than store-bought items. So, remember the next time you are at a store and see these colorful items and have a temptation to buy those and empty your pockets – you can make lots for yourself instead.
