Sure – you can go out and buy these bath bombs premade, but that can get expensive if you start to make this a part of your regular weekly routine. Instead, try this bath bomb recipe and save some major dollars!

This easy DIY bath bomb is super simple and uses ingredients that you already have at home.

I just want to note that if you don’t LOVE the scent of peppermint, you could always opt for lavender or rose. Don’t feel committed to one particular flavor or scent. Consider this a base and then customize this recipe any way you’d like.

How To Make Homemade Bath Bombs

How To Make Bath Bombs

Mix the dry ingredients first (Epsom salt, baking soda, cornstarch, and citric acid), using the whisk. Mix well to ensure there are no clumps.

Pour the wet ingredients (grapeseed oil, water, food coloring, and essential oil) into a jar, secure the lid and shake well.

How To Make Bath Bombs
Very slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture, about a few drops at a time while whisking. If you’re not pouring slowly enough, the mixture will start to fizz and you don’t want that to happen.

Bath Bomb Molds
Once all of the liquid has been poured into the dry mixture, mix very well until the color is consistent. Immediately fill the molds with the mixture, firmly stuffing each side full.

Secure both parts of the mold together and let set. I always give it about a day, just to be on the safe side. Carefully release bath bombs from molds and put into an airtight container or individual cello bags.
