If you come very tired from work and you love to take a hot bath with a nice scented bath bomb, try creating your own! You will save a bunch of money and obtain amazing results. Bath bombs are super easy to do and you won't believe how relaxed you will be at the end.
A bath bomb is a compacted mixture of wet and dry ingredients molded into any of several shapes and then dried. Bathwater effervesces at the surface of a bath bomb immersed within it, with attendant dispersion of such ingredients as essential oils, moisturizer, scent, or colorant.
- Baking soda
- Citric acid
- Epsom salt
- Coloring pigment
- Almond oil
- Essential oils
- Bath bomb molds
1- Begin by measuring out and whisking together your dry ingredients in a large bowl. You can add some coloring pigments to your bombs! It is better to use dry pigments. Add as little or as much as you’d like to achieve the color you prefer.
2- Next, in a small cup, mix together the wet ingredients. This is also where you’ll add the essential oils. You can get essential oils almost anywhere these days. Also, pay attention to the benefit each oil offers.
3- You need to add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. You’ll want to do this very slowly, adding little drops at a time while mixing. The citric acid is what causes the bath bombs to fizz when it comes into contact with water. Adding the wet ingredients slowly minimizes this effect, allowing you to create the ball.
4- Once mixed, you’re ready to mold. You can use things like a cupcake pan or silicone mold to achieve different shapes and sizes. Fill each half, packing it in slightly until it’s overflowing. Then, firmly press the halves together. Let the mold sit for one minute. Once set, tap the mold and pull it apart.
Enjoy a nice relaxing bath!
