Celebrate Valentine’s day in style with these fizzy treats. Bath bombs make the ultimate surprise gift for your loved one or the most relaxing treat for yourself! I’ve made a few batches lately, slightly tweaking last year’s recipe. Let’s get started!
- Baking Soda: ½ cup
- Citric Acid or Cream of Tartar: ¼ cup
- Corn Starch or Arrowroot Powder: ¼ cup
- Epsom Salt: ¼ cup
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl and stir until well combined.
- Vegetable Oil: 3 tsp
- Lavender Essential Oil (optional): 1 tsp
- Water: 1-2 tsp
- Skin Safe Colorant (quantity as desired)
Mix the wet ingredients then combine it with the dry. Do this until the mixture starts to clump together. Spoon the mixture into your molds and press down firmly. Leave them to dry and set overnight. Carefully pop them out to remove them from the molds and run your bath. Hop in and enjoy the scented bubbles.

AY chihuahua AMY …
in my dreams i could attempt this ..
Thanks Cat! #Rightbackatyou 🙂
Do you find these to be moisturizing or would they be just for show? It looks like a good recipe though! 🙂
Sorry for the late reply hon, the olive oil adds a moisturising effect and The lavendar oil aids in relaxation.
Very Creative, Amy! Happy Valentine’s Day to you!

I seriously would love to try but I haven’t found molds that I like and I would need to get the coloring and a few more ingredients such as essential oils lol. These look gorgeous though!
Thanks Rossy, I let the boys put the green bath bomb in the water once and now every time they get in the bath they ask for it 🙂
