soaking with bath bombsLet’s face it.  After a long and stressful day, there is nothing better than coming home and sitting in a warm hot, bathtub that will soak away all the daily frustrations in life.

But did you know that a lot of the chemicals in non-homemade bath bombs are not healthy chemicals? There are petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances, and other non-healthy or unnatural chemicals in most non homemade bath bombs.

Fortunately, there are lots of remedies in homemade bath bombs and making homemade bath bombs can be a fun, relaxing, and even financially rewarding hobby.

How do homemade bath bombs work?

Homemade bath bombs combine citric acid powder, and baking soda.  These only react together when the are put into water.  Once these homemade bath bombs are dropped into the water they move around, fizz, and release oils into the air and water.  This makes the bath fun and very relaxing.

The good thing is making homemade bath bombs is EXTREMELY easy and anyone can do it.  If you’re interested in making homemade bath bombs here is what I use:

  • Baking Soda
  • Rubber Gloves
  • Witch Hazel
  • Molds for the Soap (normally no larger than 2 inches)
  • Essential Oils (Some of these include:  Almond oil, Rosewater, Vitamin E oil, Fine Citric Acid)
  • Food Coloring
  • A Large Mixing Bowl
  • A large spoon or whisk to mix the ingredients

You will then blend these together depending on several things.  You can also add sea salts or Epsom salts into this bath.  Make sure that if you do decide to add salt into your homemade bath bombs that you use fine grain salts, and that you blend this material together really well.

You will then add in your essential oils for scent.  Once you make your bath bomb you will know that each bath bomb should last for a few baths.  Of course it depends on how much water you use, the size of the bath, the size of the bomb, and more.  And of course how long you soak in the tub also plays an important part in how long your homemade bath bomb will last.  I know I myself have sat in a tub so long I’ve used up a bath bomb in just one bath. :)   What can I say?
