DIY Bath Bombs - perfect for mom!

We found the cutest easy idea for mom for mothers day! Who doesn't want to take a relaxing bath?! Head over to A Pumpkin and a Princess blog for the full tutorial.


from the blog: 

This recipe is similar to the peppermint bath bombs I recently shared. For the lavender bath bombs I used the plastic ornament molds like last time. You can also use silicone molds like I did with the snowflake mold. Have fun and play around with different molds and sizes.  I’ve been a bath bomb making machine lately and I can’t wait to give these to friends and family this holiday season. I plan to individually wrap them in cellophane bags and personalized gift tags. Want to make your own bath bomb gifts this year? Here’s an easy recipe with Amazon affiliate links to the products I used.
Supplies:
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup Citric Acid
1/2 cup cornstarch
3 tablespoons epsom salt
2 teaspoons Sweet Almond Oil
3/4 teaspoon water
15 drops Lavender Oil
a few tablespoons of dried Organic Lavender Flowers
plastic ornament or silicone mold
Step one: In a large bowl combine baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, epsom salt and dried lavender.
Step two: In a small bowl combine almond oil, water, and essential oil.
Step three: pour wet mixture into dry mixture. Mix with a whisk until fully combined. Test mixture by pressing a handful together. If the mixture doesn’t hold LIGHTLY, with a spray bottle, spray with water once or twice. Avoid adding too much water or the mixture will fizz and not form in the mold correctly. Once it’s the right consistency press mixture into mold and allow to dry at least 2 hours before removing. Set bath bombs on a soft towel to dry overnight. 

When you are done - bring it in to the store and we will custom wrap your gift just for mom!
