Some of the very best gifts you can give are homemade! Making a gift for someone shows you put some thought and love into a loved one’s gift. Here’s an easy to make recipe that is in my new book – ESSENTIAL OILS FOR A CLEAN AND HEALTHY HOME – that just came out this month! It’s doing so well and full of recipes for nearly every item in your home. These fizzy Snowflake Bath Bombs are the perfect gift for yourself or anyone on your list!
By using a few ingredients that you can pick up on Amazon or your local store, you can have festive bath bombs made in no time! These bath bombs use corn starch, coconut oil, citric acid, baking soda and essential oils! Simple and all natural!
The directions in my book are easy to read and easy to use – here’s what you’ll see in the book when you look up a recipe!
There’s always an intro to explain the recipe, an ingredient list and how to make, how to use and how to store the recipe!
First, add all of your dry ingredients to a bowl and sift together to remove all the lumps.
1 3/4 cups baking soda
1 cup citric acid
2 cups corn starch
Next, add in 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to add some moisturizing properties to your bath bombs! Mix well with a fork.
Then, take a small spray bottle with a fine mister top and lightly spritz the mixture with water. Mix well and keep spritzing until the mixture becomes the consistency of sand that can be easily molded with your hands.
You can add food coloring to your water bottle if you’d like to color your bath bombs. I left these Snowflake Bath Bombs white.
Once the mixture resembles a wet sand mixture, you can add in your essential oils and mix well. I added 10 drops of lavender essential oils and 10 drops orange essential oils to my bath bombs.
Now you are ready to add the mixture to your silicone molds. I love these snowflake molds that I found on Amazon.com! They’re perfect for festive gift giving!
Make sure to pack the mixture down tightly with your fingers. Allow to harden uncovered on your counter for a few hours before removing from the molds.
That’s it! Add your Snowflake Bath Bombs to clear cellophane gift bags and tie with festive twine or ribbon. So very cute!
These bath bombs are wonderful to add to a warm bath. Just place the bath bomb in the water and watch it fizz and add a wonderful scent and moisturize your skin in the process!
Snowflake Bath Bombs are a fun and festive way to give gifts this holiday season! All natural, easy to make and something that everyone will love – Snowflake Bath Bombs are a must-give item this holiday season!
