Birthdays and Bath Bombs


Hi Y'all.

Today I'm celebrating my 44th birthday!

I still can't believe that I'm in my forties..

I still can't believe I'm telling y'all lol...

So why not celebrate and make bath bombs...

It's so fun and easy and makes sweet gifts.

You will need 3 ingredients.



Baking Soda.

I found a large box at Wal Mart in the baking section.


Citric Acid.

You can find this at any store that sells canning products.
I found mine at Wal Mart in the Ball jar section.


Essential Oil.

I found this at our local Whole Foods.

You can add ground oatmeal or dried lavender buds and so many other things.

Just remember whatever you put in your bath bomb that doesn't dissolve, you'll have to clean out later.

In a large bowl, mix your dry ingredients.

2 parts baking soda to 1 part citric acid.

Make sure all of your lumps are out.

I find using my hands work best.




I then add a few drops of my oil and food coloring.

Coloring is optional and I used just a couple of drops.

You can see below how little I use.

I don't measure.. sorry



Adding a few drops at a time and working it together it will start to look like this...

Once you can form a ball and have it stay together, it's ready!

It will take some time before you will get this look.

Be patient and try to hold back the urge to add more oil.



A plastic Easter egg makes a great form.

I coat my egg with a bit of oil.


Pack both sides of your egg..

You will really want to make sure it's in good and packed.

Almost to the point your egg wont close.

Once you press it closed, dust off the edges.




When your fizzie is popped out, it will take on your egg shape.

You can just knock off that little pointed piece.


I use a spoon to round off my ball.


I then place all of my bath bombs on a sheet of wax paper.

You will need to let them set up and dry for at least a day or two.

If you try and use them too soon, they will just fall apart in your bath.

You want them to hold firm till they fizz away in your warm bath.


My batch made 8 bath bombs and my house smells like a spa!



I tried one last night and oh boy!!!

It smelled sooo good.

You can make larger bombs if you want your bath bomb to fizz longer.


Enjoy!

xoxo Susie
