Self care was at the top of so many resolution lists, if it was on yours clearly you need to know how to make DIY bath bombs. Not just any bath tub fizzie I’m talking the fancy kind that smells heavenly, conditions your skin and floats rose petals in the tub. You will feel like you are in a spa in the comfort of your own home.

No one was more surprised than I was that bath bombs are so easy to make.  I thought it was some type of apothecary black magic that made these suckers sizzle, but really it’s just citric acid from Amazon. (That reminds me, this post contains affiliate links, by purchasing through these links you help support this blog) Once you make a big batch you can add all kinds of different scents, dried flowers and skies the limit on molds. With  Valentine’s Day right around the corner I thought rose petal hearts were appropriate.

Mix your wet and dry ingredients seperately. Sift all the dry ingredients together. For the wet part be sure to melt your coconut oil first. How many drops of essential oil you add is up to you but 20ish is a good number. Same with colorant, the more you add the more vibrant the color. 

Some recipes suggest spraying your silicone molds with cooking spray like Pam. Not sure it is a must. Add a few rose petals to the bottom of the mold before adding the mixture. Fill the mold and compact the mixture as you go.

    Doesn't anyone think this is a dream come true for plumbers charging well over $100 for a home visit to unclog your drains.
