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!
Hip Tip: Citric acid can be found in stores with the canning supplies, but after visiting a couple of stores I found it definitely less expensive to buy in bulk online.
Lavender Bath Bombs
- 2 and 1/2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil, melted
- 1 Tablespoon Water
- 8-10 drops Essential Oils (I used Plant Therapy Lavender and Peppermint Essential Oils)
- Optional add-in: Tablespoon of Dried Lavender
- Bath Bomb Molds (These metal 2.5-inch molds worked great!)
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 the 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!
