I have three girls, and we all like to be pampered. We love taking baths, but all of the fun stuff costs money! My 4 year old daughter brought me a bag of little bath bombs at Target, and they were $10 for 5 bath bombs! Sure they were pink, but there wasn’t anything great about them. So, I decided to do some research and found a very easy recipe on one of the videos at Sarabeautycorner on YouTube. We didn’t have real bath bomb molds, so I used a combination of plastic eggs and a silicone mold that made several strawberry shaped bath fizzies! It was so much fun, and only took about a day to dry. I think they look much prettier than the ones we saw in the store! I love the tie dye effect, which we got by layering colors in the egg. These bath bombs are great to use or give as gifts! If you are looking for more fun ways to make your kid’s bath more fun, visit my post 5 Ways to Make Bath Time Fun For Kids!
In the video, she used gel food coloring and mixed it with water, but we just used neon food coloring and slowly added it to the mixture. I also used grapeseed oil for our oil. The recipe begins 10:54 in video (below) and the ingredients are listed below. I found a great deal on citric acid on Amazon. It was far cheaper than anywhere else I looked.
Here are the things you will need:
Some sort of mold. For the ones in the picture, I used plastic eggs.
1/2 cup Citric Acid (I bought this exact one, and I love it!)
Epsom Salt (I used this kind, but you can use any. This one smells amazing though!)
Food Coloring (Also, the exact kind I used. Love these bright colors!)
I think they turned out pretty well
