Love Lush brand bath bombs as much as I do?

They’re such a fun and luxurious product for your bath (delightful fragrance and fizz? Yes, please!).  Whether you’re making these for yourself or hosting a girl’s night in, these DIY Lush inspired bath bombs will save you money instead of having to dish out $8 each at Lush. 🙌

Better yet, you can customize colors and fragrances!

DIY Lush Inspired Bath Bombs

Supplies Needed:


1.) Mix baking soda, corn starch, citric acid, Epsom salt, and cream of tartar.

Note: Cream of tartar is optional, but it’s a hardener I’ve been adding to bath bombs lately.

2.) Mix water and oils together. Slowly incorporate into the dry mixture 1/2 teaspoon at a time and stir well.

3.) The consistency should feel like damp sand. If it’s still too dry, try spraying a little alcohol or witch hazel on it. This helps avoid fizzing.

4.) Separate mixture into three bowls, and mix a few drops of desired coloring into each bowl.

5.) Layer each side of the bath bomb mold with the three separate colors for a fun tie dye effect. Make sure to overfill slightly.

6.) Close the bath bomb sides together, press down, and wait for a couple minutes to set.

7.) Lightly tap on the molds and remove. Let dry overnight.

Enjoy at bath time!

Hip Tip:  Save your sanity and use molds like these! I tried some clear plastic ones from Hobby Lobby that were a complete fail for me. I wouldn’t want you to waste your time and money like I did!

This recipe produced five beautiful bath bombs!

They turned out so pretty and smell amazing, I can’t wait to enjoy them with a relaxing bath! Pamper yourself and make extras as thoughtful gifts!

  • HIP List
  • Print

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 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 in classic view.

If you prefer to view 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.
