Steps to Make Valentine’s Day Bath Bombs

Step 1

Place the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix together with a whisk.

Step 2

In the small bowl, mix the liquid ingredients together until well blended.

Step 3

In the large bowl, slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients at little bit at a time. Mixture should hold together when squeezed without crumbling.

Pro Tip: Don’t mix the wet and dry ingredients too quickly. This will activate the mixture and it will begin to fizz.

Step 4

When well mixed, pack the mixture into your heart shaped bath bomb mold and pack tightly, then let it dry. Make sure you work quickly so the mixture doesn’t dry out.

Bath Bombs need a day to several to fully harden. If they’re not quite hardened enough, they may crumble when you handle them, so check to make sure before taking them out of the mold.

How To Use Your DIY Bath Bombs

To use your bath bomb, fill your tub with warm water and drop in your bath bomb. It will fizz and release the scent (if you used essentials oils) and all the skin-softening agents. Soak for about 20 – 30 minutes.
