We all need some good TLC sometimes, right? I figured since baths are one of my favorite ways to relax and unwind, why not make it a little more enjoyable with herbs, of course! I decided to get creative and make some bath bombs because I have heard how easy they are to make... and I found out that this is accurate, they are super easy and super quick to whip up!
I kept it simple in this recipe, but you can go crazy - some of my favorite herbs to use in baths are
Red clover blossoms

LAVENDER ROSE TEA OLIVE OIL BATH BOMBS
Makes 1 to 3 dozen, depending on size
Here's What You'll Need
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup citric acid (I got mine at Whole Foods)
1/2 cup organic corn starch
2 tablespoons bath salts (I suggest Himalayan or Epsom)
2 tablespoons olive oil
5 to 6 teaspoons liquid, such as water or tea (I used strong lavender rose tea)
20-25 drops essential oils, optional
Here's What You'll Do
In a large bowl, combine the baking soda, citric acid, corn starch and salts. With a whisk or dough cutter, work the olive oil into the dry ingredients, until the mixture resembles sand.
Working with 1 teaspoon at a time, slowly add the liquid to the dry ingredients, stirring it in immediately with a large spoon. The mixture will foam slightly with each addition, this is normal.
Add the liquid until your mixture resembles slightly damp sand. *Be sure to add just a little bit of the wet ingredients at a time, if you add too much, these will begin fizzing and continue to do so. It should be primarily dry, but when you squeeze a handful together, it should stick in a lump.
If you wish to add essential oils, do so by mixing them into the liquid ingredients.
Once the mixture is ready, press it firmly and tightly into each mold. You do not need to prepare the molds in any way. Allow to dry for a minimum of 4 hours, or overnight. Remove from the molds and store in an airtight container until ready to use.
I hope you all enjoy this recipe and give it a shot!!
