Turn Bath Time Into Spa Time
There's no better way to unwind after a long day.
Turn bath time into spa time with these homemade bath bombs.
Your bathtub may not look like the photo below, but it couldn't be easier to transform your bathroom into a spa-like retreat. Here's how to do it:
Before you can take a dip to get clean, you need to clean your tub. Afterall, no one wants to relax in a dirty tub. Spray a bathroom cleaner and use a sponge to remove stubborn stains.
The key to any luxurious spa is a fizzy bath bomb that fills the space with floral scents. Making one at home couldn't be easier either. Start with a glass bowl and add 3 cups baking soda, 1 cup cornstarch, 1 cup citric acid and 1 cup Epsom salt.
Stir all of the ingredients together for a few seconds and then add 4 tbsp. coconut oil and about 10 drops of essential oil. Pour in a small amount of water to help hold all of the ingredients together and then mix together by hand. You want a sticky consistency that clumps together.
This step is optional but if you want to give your bath bombs a splash of color, add about 10 drops of vegetable-based food coloring and mix together by hand. We recommend trying a bunch of different colors. They will look great on display in your bathroom.
Next, fill bath bomb molds with the mixture from the previous step. If you don't have a mold, ice trays will work too. Once filled, seal the mold and press together for a few seconds and then release. Your bath bomb is complete! Allow it to dry for 24-hours before using.
When you're ready to relax, reach for one of your colorful DIY bath bombs and toss it in the tub.
