‘Tis the season for giving and if you’re like us, finding the time to shop, bake and make gifts, or simply relax is daunting. Bath Bombs to the rescue! It takes less than a day to create these decadent, pampering gifts and you’ll find most of the ingredients right in your kitchen pantry. Best of all, this fun DIY project makes enough to spoil those on your gift list as well as you.
ONE FOR TEACHER, ONE FOR YOU
You can go solo or have a make-your-own-bath-bomb party. Any way you choose, your whole house will smell amazing while making these gifts. Follow the recipe faithfully, down to the last measure of liquid. We used 70mm clear plastic ball ornaments which can easily be found on Amazon.
As is, the recipe makes two substantially sized bath bombs (one bomb is all you need for bathing in a master suite garden tub). To make more gifts and save time, simply triple, quadruple, etc. the ingredients. You can always use smaller plastic ornaments, too.
STEP ONE: ASSEMBLE THE INGREDIENTS
