DIY Lavender Bath Bomb
I hosted another Make and Take Party this week. After last month’s the girls requested that we make bath bombs! They are pretty simple to make and they give you a luxurious soak in the tub. (Simply add a glass of wine if you’re the mother of a toddler - oh, and lock the door). This recipe calls for either Citric Acid or cream of tartar, so if you don’t just have Citric Acid lying around the house, use the cream of tartar. You can grab Citric Acid from Amazon if you’re planning on making a lot of these as gifts. Or if you’re just planning on stocking up for the rest of your year!

Lavender Bath Bomb
2/3 cup baking soda
2 tsp cream of tartar or Citric Acid
approximately 10-15 drops Essential Oil
2 tsp V6 Oil Blend or sweet almond oil
Water in a spray bottle
1 T dried lavender (optional)
DIRECTIONS: Sift baking soda and cream of tarter into a mixing bowl and whisk together. Add in essential oils and V6 Oil Blend and whisk together. Add in dried lavender (optional) and whisk together. Spray a few sprays of water over the top and mix. Continue with water and mixing until the blend just forms and holds in clumps. Spoon the mixture and press into molds and allow to dry overnight. Remove from mold and store in an airtight container until you’re ready to chill in your relaxing tub.
Molds: I found these great molds on Amazon, but I've also found them at Hobby Lobby. They've lasted about two times as the plastic is a bit thin, but they work. I've also made smaller "bombs" in silicone cookie molds. They're cool because you can make all sorts of shapes and sizes. For the holidays, I made them in the shape of snowflakes. These are some super cute flower molds.
