Do you love relaxing in a nice warm bath? Add in these easy to make lavender bath bombs to make it even better! They smell amazing and are easy to make!
My youngest son loves bath bombs, loves loves them. After buying a few for him I decided to try them myself and I fell in love with them too! Once I realized that I wanted to have them on hand all the time I decided to start making them!
I almost always take a bath at night, it is one of my favorite ways to relax! A nice warm bath, Gilmore Girls streaming on Netflix and maybe a nice glass or wine or cup of tea… it’s the best!
So to add the perfect bath bomb I decided to go for lavender, there is no better scent to help you rest and relax, and you come out of the bath smelling lovely!
Here’s what you’ll need to make these lavender bath bombs
- 2 oz Epsom salt
- 4 oz baking soda
- 2 oz corn starch
- 2 oz citric acid- Available in the canning
secionof the grocery store or here on Amazon
- 1 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
- ½ tbsp water
- 1 drop lavender soap
- 20 drops Lavender essential oil – Here are my
favoriteplaces to buy affordable essential oils
- 1 tablespoon dried lavender flowers
- Large bowl
- 2-3 medium size round bath bomb
molds– I got mine from Amazon
- Small jar with lid
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
First mix all your dry ingredients together and use the whisk to make sure they are mixed thoroughly.
Now add in half of your dried lavender flowers.
If your coconut oil is solid pop it in the microwave for few seconds to melt it, then put it in your jar with your water, essential oil and coloring, secure the lid and shake well to mix everything together.
Very slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture, about a few drops at a time, while whisking. If you’re not pouring slowly enough, the mixture will start to fizz and you don’t want that to happen.
Once the liquid is all mixed in keep mixing until the color is nice and even.
Now to make the bombs you want to put a little bit of the flowers in one side of the mold.
Now fill the
Let your lavender bath bombs dry, I usually wait 24 hours so that I can be sure they are thoroughly dried.
Once they have had time to dry gently remove them from the molds. You can individually wrap them or store them in an airtight container.
To use just plop them in your nice warm bath and relax in the fizzy lavender scented water!
