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
You can get round bath bomb molds on Amazon for $5-$7.  The kids like them kind of messy looking and they like them with sparklies.  I don’t know how safe the sparklies are – if you have suggestions, comment below.  There are tons of cute silicone molds for candies and suckers and playdoughs.  You could do a train or a bus or stars – the kids relly like the messy ones that just look like they’ve been rolled with a different colored flower on them – or rainbow colors.

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.
