If you haven’t yet, check out our YouTube video of the bath bombs we made!
Kid safe, all natural, cheap and easy! We even put surprises in them! So awesome!!!
Howie was not as impressed but I think once he gets a fizzy bath of his own, and feels his luxuriously soft skin he will change his mind! I’m kidding- I don’t know if these are even pet safe. He’d probably freak. I love him too much to torture him!
Here’s the recipe:
1 cup Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Citric Acid
1/4 Cup Bentonite Clay
1/4 Cup carrier oil (I use avocado oil- coconut makes me break out)
Mix up the dry, add the wet, cram it into a cupcake tin, leave it over night. Then, plop plop fizz fizz. Joy!
You can add essential oils and some of the recipes added food coloring. I’m not loving the idea of food coloring in my bath or in Natalie’s blonde hair…. so I’m looking into some mica powders that people use to tint homemade makeup.
We mixed the powders all together then put the essential oils in the 1/4 cup of oil and then poured it out about a 1/4 at a time while mixing the powder with a spoon. When all the oil was added we mixed it more with our hands, until it stuck together and was well blended.
The consistency was pretty fragile, we smashed handfuls into a cupcake tin, as much as we could press into one. It made four large cupcakes worth, but next time I would probably use the smaller cupcake tins.
Then we let them sit overnight. In the morning they were hard, not like rocks or anything, but maybe more like dirt bombs. Like I wouldn’t want to drop one but they slid out of the tin in one piece.
In the tub they were really cool! They fizzed right up!! I say they could be smaller because the bath bomb to bath water ratio was pretty potent. It also left a pretty decent ring and residue in the tub after draining.
But, using a damp washcloth it easily wiped out and I am pretty sure the tub is cleaner now. 🤷♀️ Win/win for me!
Plus, you’re all getting bath bombs for Christmas now!
