Love the fizzy & fragrant Bath Bombs sold in stores? 🛀 💣

Did you know that it’s actually super EASY & FUN to make your own bath fizzies at home?! You can even customize them with whatever essential oils you desire and also add in any dye if you want the Bath Bombs to be colored.

I was actually going for a more natural approach for this batch so I skipped the food coloring and just used essential oils and some dried lavender. This bath bomb recipe works great and is such a fantastic little DIY project!

Tip: Citric acid can be found in stores with the canning supplies, but after visiting a couple stores I found it definitely less expensive to buy in bulk online.

Lavender Bath Bombs

Dry Ingredients:
Wet Ingredients:

Directions:

1.) Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl using a whisk.

2.) Mix wet ingredients in a separate dish. Slowly pour in wet ingredients to dry mixture. It helps to drizzle in abut 1/2 teaspoon at a time and stir. Then keep repeating until mixture is well combined. Avoid dumping it all in at once or it will start fizzing. Texture should feel like damp sand. Stir in dried lavender if using.

3.) Pack mixture into a half mold and overfill it a little. Do the same with the other half mold. Place each half together and press down. Let sit for at least a minute. (Tip: Try placing in freezer for 5 minutes to set. I found this to be easier.)

4.) Lightly tap and carefully pull apart mold to detach bath bomb. Let them dry overnight. Enjoy your Bath Bomb in the bathtub!

Note: This recipe made 5 bath bombs using the 2.5 inch molds.

These Bath Bombs make your bath water smell AMAZING! You will love it. My kids enjoyed helping with this too, and are excited to use them.

Bath Bombs make great homemade gifts to share with friends and family! How cute would it be to create a “Bath Bomb Kit” and provide everything needed as a gift!? So fun!

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your Hip2Save.com account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing Hip2Save.com in classic view.

If you prefer to view Hip2Save.com in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
