Bath bombs are a great and fun way to take a bath, while also improving your skin and relaxing at the same time. These are called bombs because they come apart when they sit in the bath water. Some have stuff inside, while others create a swirl, colored pattern.
Here are 5 different bath bomb ideas you can try out for yourself.
- Relaxing Lavender Bath Bomb
Lavender is definitely one of the most popular scents and essential oils, and it goes perfectly when you are making your own bath bomb. This will provide relaxation and stress relief with the lavender used, plus it smells great and of course it’s pretty.
To make this lavender bath bomb, you want to use lavender essential oil, cream of tartar, baking soda, corn starch, filtered water, and Epsom salts. You can also add some dried flowers or leaves if you want. You will mix the ingredients, add them to a mini muffin pan or molds, and let them harden.
- Green Tea Bath Bomb
Who doesn’t love green tea? This is a really fun idea for your own bath bomb. You will typically need to use baking soda and citric acid to be mixed first, which is the base of the bath bomb.
To make it a green tea bomb, try adding some green tea seed extract and green tea seed oil.
You can also add in a little green coloring so it looks just like a real green tea bath bomb. Some other ingredients to consider adding are other essential oils or herbs for added health and scent.
- Coconut and Fruit Bath Bomb
For this bath bomb, there is some room for customizing it to fit your preferences. As with all the bath bombs, you should start with baking soda, citric acid, and maybe some Epsom salts as well.
You will then use melted coconut oil, about 3 tablespoons for one bath of bath bombs. Then add in some juice of your choice, like beet juice or grapefruit juice.
You can add in some fruity essential oils to turn it into a fruit-scented bath bomb.
The coconut oil will moisturize your skin, so you have added health benefits with this one.
- Rose Petal Bath Bomb
This is a really pretty and romantic bath bomb to make. For this bath bomb, once again use your baking soda and citric acid, then add in some rose water, rose essential oils, and some dried rose buds or rose petals.
You will notice that after this bath bomb is done and you drop it in your bath, it open up to reveal the rose petals, which are beautiful while enjoying a luxurious, relaxing bath.
