bath bombs

Diwali is just around the corner, and we know you are hunting for the perfect gift for your loved ones. But how about making them something? I know, you might tell us, where will you find the time to make something amidst the festive chaos, but trust us, these bath bombs are easy to make, but the receivers will surely think you’ve spent hours making them!

Bath bombs make perfect gifts, cause they are shimmery, soothing and not to forget just magical! Everyone deserves to soak away their day’s pain and nothing better than a handmade bath bomb. We share an easy recipe with you, feel free to customise it according to your taste!

Here is what you need:
1 Cup Baking Soda (Soothes rashes & reduces body odour)
Half Cup Citric Acid (Brightens skin & shrinks pores)
Half Cup Epsom Salt Or Pink Salt (Soothes aching muscles and relieves stress)
1 Teaspoon Water
2 Teaspoon Essential Oil of your choice (Helps moisturise chapped skin)
3 Teaspoon Coconut Oil (Helps relieve inflammation)
4 Drops of Food Colouring of your choice
Bath Bomb Molds

Method:

Begin by placing all the dry ingredient in a bowl and whisk them well.

Wet ingredients

In another bowl or a jar, mix all the wet ingredients – oil, water, essential oils, food colouring, and fragrance (if any) and mix well.

mix well

Now slowly add the wet mixture to the dry mix one small spoon at a time and continue to mix well. When the mixture starts to clump a little, its ready to be moulded.

fill the mold

Simple over-pack the bath bomb mixture into the mold tightly and let it sit overnight. If you do not have a bath bomb mold, you could use Easter egg molds, muffin trays or even ice cube trays, but just remember to pack the mixture tightly!

To make the bath bombs look even prettier, add glitter or dried herbs/flowers at the bottom of the mold before filling them in, and voila your bath bombs are ready!
