24 DIYs of Christmas: DIY # 20

There is one craze that you see everywhere now….

Bath Bombs. That’s why I thought it would be the perfect DIY gift for the holidays!

Here’s what you will need:
1 cup Baking Soda
1/2 cup Citric Acid
1/2 cup Epsom Salt
1/2 cup Corn Starch
Pearl Color Pigment
2 1/2 tablespoons Almond Oil
3/4 tablespoon water
12-15 drops Essential Oils
Bath Bomb Mold (15)

Step One: In a medium bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients. Add as much or as little color pigment to achieve desired look. Whisk to combine.

Step Two: In a separate small bowl, mix together the wet ingredients.

Step Three: Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones very slowly. (This is very important; otherwise you will activate the citric acid which is used to create the fizzing affect.) Mix until combined, and the ingredients look like wet sand.

Step Four: Fill each half of the mold, packing the mixture in slightly until it’s overflowing. Press the halves together firmly. Let the filled mold sit for one minute. Lightly tap the mold and gently pull it apart to remove the bath bomb. Let the bath bombs dry for 24 hours before enjoying in the tub.

Now you have your very own Bath Bomb gifts!! You can do different smells and colors for each person, or make them all the same! There are so many options for you.

Happy Holidays,
