Weekend Project: Make Your Own Soothing, Hydrating Bath Bomb

December 15, 2017 by Alaisha Key

Who doesn’t love a relaxing soak in the tub? But picking up a soothing, bath balm to enjoy can get costly, and if you’re like me, you need a super hydrating formula to moisturize your skin. So instead of searching the aisles for the perfect combo, try making your own.

There are a few common ingredients that you need to make a bath balm. Add some baking soda, citric acid powder, Epsom salts, and corn starch to your shopping list. Some other ingredients that you’ll need that you probably have around the house are essential oils, vegetable oil, food coloring, and water. You’ll also need a mold to make the shape.

There are tons of recipes out there to choose from for measurements. Once you pick one that fits your needs, mix together the dry ingredients.  In a separate bowl mix together the wet ingredients–a few tablespoons of each. Combine the wet ingredients gradually to the dry mix, stirring them together as you go. Then, put the sand-like mixture in the mold of your choosing. Take it out and let it dry in a cool place. And you’ve made your own DIY bath balm!

The best part: you’ll have enough ingredients to make them in bulk, so you won’t have to buy bath balm for a long while. Plus, you can gift these as stocking stuffers.
