BATH BOMBS AREN’T ONLY A SPA TREAT
Kids love them too!
Bath Bombs are for Everyone
We have a store that sells them here in town. You can buy a small box with a few bath bombs for around $50. What a cool thing for kids to love – but oh my gosh – that’s a lot of money for a child’s bath! I told Ciara (6) and Jackson (2 1/2) about Kora using them and they remembered them a week later when we skyped….so I made another trip to the expensive bath bomb store and bought one shaped like a robot for Jackson and another that was bright and colorful with one of her favorite colors (turquoise) for Ciara. Then, I carried them all the way across the ocean to surprise them when I visited. I brought a whole suitcase full of clothes and toys – and next to the Paw Patrol – these were the big HIT. They had so much fun watching them fizz and then, they enjoyed the bath in the blue/green water.

An Easy Recipe
I can’t imagine not having the fun of watching it explode into the water- but – grownups, you can use these in showers as well. Just let the water hit them, they fizz and the aroma from your oils release into the air. I got one for a Christmas gift – it works.
Some of these ingredients weren’t readily available in my kitchen and I’d never purchased them before, so I found the citric acid at Amazon and Whole Foods.
Wouldn’t it be fun to have a party for a bunch of preteens and their moms and make bath bombs together! It could be a tea party…the girls could all have special aprons and ….well – I can see it. They could even do lab coats and turn it into a science lesson. Either way – lots of F-U-N!
Ingredients and Tools:
- few drops of natural food color
- 1.5 cups citric acid
- 1.5 cups baking soda
- 3/4 cup cornstarch
- 3/4 cup fractionated coconut oil (or almond oil)
- 12 drops (or more) essential oil
- candy or play dough molds
How to do it
- Mix together all the dry ingredients, wisk or stir to eliminate clumps and set to the side.
- In a separate container combine the wet ingredients.
- Then slowly (so it doesn’t fizz), pour the wet ingredients and stir.
- Use your hands and pat together if needed. It should stick with out falling apart or being to runny – add a little wet or dry as needed.
- Put into mold and leave for 24 hours
Doesn’t this sound like fun! Kora had one that was called “Granny takes a dip.” It smelled really nice – ginger, black pepper and citris. I have ALL of those oils in my kitchen. It’s easy and boy does it save money.
