Every once in a while, we deserve to take a break and take some time out for self-care – and what can be better than unwinding yourself in a long relaxing bath with dim lights and soothing music.
To make it all better, you definitely need to pop in a beautifully scented and colorful bath bomb to fizz up your bathing experience and make it worthwhile. However, sometimes it can be challenging to get your hands on the right bath bomb with the smell, essential oil, and design of your choice.
Don't worry! You can always opt for making them right from the comfort of your home.

Craft and store up bath bombs for every mood, be it bath bombs filled with lavender to relieve stress or sandalwood to help you focus on your latest project, the best part about making bath bombs at home is that you can make them just the way you want to!
Without any further due, let's get to it.
Things You Need
Essential Oils of Choice
Dry Coloring Pigment of Choice
A Large Bowl and Utensils for Mixing
A shaped mold, preferably a circle
Quick and Easy Process
Step 1: Measuring the Dry Ingredients
Start off by measuring the desired ratio and mixing all your dry ingredients in a large bowl. These are baking soda, cornstarch, Epsom salt, and the dry coloring pigment.
Note: The amount of coloring pigment you add depends on the color you wish to achieve.
Step 2: Incorporating the Wet Ingredients
It's best to first measure your essential oils and pour them over the dry ingredients. If you wish to create a more fusion smell, you can always add more than one oil as well.
Without mixing in oils, add in your citric acid. This will cause the ingredients to bubble up; hence, you need to ensure you add it in smaller quantities and gently mix it in.
Step 3: Molding the Bath Bomb
Now that you have properly mixed in all the ingredients, it's time to add the mixture to the mold.
Bath bomb molds are readily available in all craft stores and online, so you can browse through various stores and pick out the shape you like.
Fill both sides of the mold until it's full and press the mold firmly together to form shape. Remove the excess mixture from the sides and let them dry for over 24 hours.
You're now free to unwind in your mini spa right at home!
