Want to learn how to make bath bombs? Not only are bath bombs a great way to enhance an already pleasurable activity (who doesn’t love a warm soak in the tub!), they also make for fantastic shower or wedding favors. Bath bombs smaller than these sell for $6.45 a pop at Lush. If you take lots of baths, your money will dissolve pretty quickly.
2 cups Epsom salts 2 tablespoons water A few drops essential oil(s) 1 drop food coloring, plus more if desired Special equipment: plastic pipette, large or small round bath-ball molds, storage jars If bath ball molds are not available, use plastic eggs that open or silicone molds (muffin, ice cube etc)
DIY Bathbombs- basic recipe is one part citric acid 2 pts baking soda. Spritz with water till you can form it into a ball. Some recipes also added one part cornstarch and / or Epsom salts (which worked well for me). Most included a tablespoon or almond or other mild oil per cup of citric acid, as well as dye and fragrance. Fun and easy to make with kids, good gift.
