Nothing quite hits the spot like a good old bath bomb. Stick it in the water as you fill up the tub, and it fizzes and releases wonderful smells, while coloring the water and relaxing you instantly. But they tend to cost way more than they should, and when you can easily make them at home for a fraction of the price, why not whip up a batch yourself? These make amazingly wonderful gifts for the ladies in your life, and they are awesome to have on hand on those days you just want to indulge. For a home spa day, they are essential!

Here’s what you’ll need for your DIY Lavender Bath Bombs:

8 oz Baking Soda
4 oz Cream of Tartar
4 oz Corn Starch
4 oz Epsom Salts
3/4 tsp. Water
2 tsp. Essential Oil for scent ( Lavender )
2 tsp. Coconut Oil
Food coloring if you want colored bombs (Purple)
A small mini muffin pan

First, mix salt, baking soda, cornstarch and cream of tartar in a large mixing bowl, while in a separate bowl you mix the water, oil and food coloring.

Now go ahead and mix wet and dry. At this point, your mixture should resemble wet sand. Adding the food coloring helps you figure out if it’s well-mixed, as an even color means a good mix. When you squeeze some in your fist, it should hold together. If it doesn’t, add water a few drops at a time until desired consistency is reached.

Tightly pack it down into your muffin pans. You want to let it dry for 24 hours. Do not remove from the pans until the mix is completely dry, or you will find they disintegrate.

You can add decorations to your molds if you like. Dried flowers, edible glitter or things of that nature are always nice. Just be sure it is safe in the bath tub!

There you have it. Super simple bath bombs that won’t cost the earth. And they are SO nice on your skin. They both exfoliate and moisturize you as you sit in the bath. Who could ask for more?

I love making DIY beauty products with simple things you already have around your house! I love lavender as bath products too because it's such a relaxing scent. I cannot wait to try and make these bath bombs!

I'm planning on making several of these but i don't have a mini muffin pan. Do you think an ice cube tray would work? Maybe not as cute but do you think it would get the job done?
