DIY Bath Bomb Recipe

Do you want an easy Do it yourself (DIY) bath bomb recipe? Here’s a simple one with just a few items – Great for any gift giving occasion.

With Valentine’s day around the corner these one’s are done in “Pink hearts”.  But you can use any kind of mold. My friend one year simply used plastic easter eggs that had a top and bottom that were bought from the  dollar store – and that’s how she also shipped them

If you want bath bomb molds – you can purchase them at Amazon.ca as well.

I know from personal experience of living in a  small town Citric Acid can be harder to find. But just to let you know Amazon Canada does sell it if you also have a hard time purchasing it locally.

 

Substitutes:

This Recipe also calls for Epson Salts (I usually purchase mine at Shoppers drug mart) but if you wanted to add more Pink and have a texture – You can use Himalayan salt (finely ground)

You can also substitute the grape-seed oil for another oil you have on hand, such as olive oil, or almond oil – You can even use melted Shea butter depending on your pantry.

Tips

Don’t make bath bombs  when it’s raining outside – the humidity will make them fizz before the chance to use them.

Wrap them in cellophane first before adding them into any gift basket or plastic bags.
