Fun DIY Bath Bomb Valentine’s Craft

fun-diy-bath-bomb-valentines-craft

One of my favorite things to indulge in is taking a bath with my favorite bath bomb recipe.  Why would someone want to spend eight bucks on one bath bomb that you could easily make at home?

This bath bomb recipe is a perfect craft to do with the kids.  Since Valentines Day is coming up, I thought I would share this recipe, and it makes for the ideal gift or enjoyable for the kid’s bath time and even your time bath.

This recipe is all non-toxic and does not include food coloring.  That will stain your bathtub.  So Happy Valentines Day and I hope this makes for a fun bonding experience for you and the whole family.  You can add your favorite essential oil or some lavender essential oil to the bath bombs before bedtime baths, or for you tired mamas.

 

Ingredients

  1. 1/4 cup of citric acid
  2. 2 1/2 cups of baking soda
  3. 1 cup of Epsom salts this one is my favorite
  4. bath bomb colorant I use this one
  5. witch hazel
  6. essential oil
  7. mixing bowl
  8. heart mold silicone pan
  9. witch hazel filled spray bottle

Directions

  1. Combine the citric acid, Epsom salt and baking soda in a bowl. Mix well.
  2. Add a few drops of the colorant and your fragrance of choice. Mix in the dye using your hands. The bath bomb colorant will clump up, but it shouldn’t cause the bombs to fizz.
  3. This next step is the tricky one: You need to get the mixture moist enough to form into the molds but not wet enough to start fizzing up. Start to slowly, spray the dough and mixing the witch hazel in with your hands.
  4. Once the mixture sticks together when you squeeze it, pack it into the molds.
  5. Let the mixture dry overnight. Then gently remove the bath bombs from the mold.

I would love it if you could spread the love (the Valentine love) and Pin this post.  Also please leave a comment if you tried this recipe and how it turned out.

    So fun! Thank you for such a great Valentines Day gift idea.
    My daughter is having a few girls sleep over for her birthday.
    I think making bath balls would be such a fun craft for the girls to make.

    I love bath bombs. I use them at night with a little lavender and it helps me relax at the end of the day. These sound really easy to make! I’ll have to try them.
