Today I am sharing a  great last minute gift idea as well as a staple bath and body product!  Nothing says relaxation like a warm bath filled with heavenly scents and smoothing oils from a  fizzing bath bomb… but we all know the one time use item isn’t always something we can splurge on.  Well today I have you covered on making these DIY Bath Bomb at home for pennies on the dollar!!!

What you will need:

I get all of my natural ingredients from Nature with Love. They have everything you can imagine and at great prices, great customer service and best of all great quality;

  • 2 cups Baking Soda
  • 1 cup Citric Acid
  • 1 cup Corn Starch
  • 1 cup Epson Salt
  • 5 teaspoons of Coconut Oil
  • 4 teaspoon E.O or Fragrance Oil I used Basil Nectarine
  • 1.5 teaspoon water
  • Spray bottle with water
  • Large Bowl
  • Snap ornaments bought at Hobby Lobby
  • Cupcake pan
  • Color Additive (optional)
  • Clean Kitchen Towel
  • Gloves



  • Pour all dry ingredients into a large bowl, and mix well
  • Slowly adding wet ingredients and mix well. (You will see a little reaction this is normal).
    • If you are adding color to your mix, you can start off with about 20 drops and continue to add until you get the desired color you want.
  • Continue to mix and spray water into the mixture until you get the consistency of damp sand.
  • Over fill each half of your snap ornaments push each side together removing excess mixture, open and remove bath bomb.
  • Store in cupcake pan with kitchen towel over it for 24 hours.  This will help remove any excess moisture from the bath bombs.
  • Throw in the bath and enjoy!

Bath bombs should be stored in a cool dry space and are good for 6 months.

Please note, when adding fragrances to any products you use for bath & body, make sure they are suitable to be used on skin as well.  What type of scent do you plan to add to your mix?  Vanilla is a scent that both women and men typically enjoy, so get creative and have fun.
