12 Days of D.I.Y. Christmas Gifts
with essential oils
~ D.I.Y. Bath/Shower Bombs ~
“Is it going to explode like a bomb?!!??”
My 4 year old son asked me this when I was writing down the recipe. He saw the word bomb and asked me to read that word out loud to him. HAHA! “Not quite honey, but it has a nice fizz to it!”
Put 3-4 into a cute little baggy and you’ve got yourself a very useful adorable gift!
What you need:
- 1 cup Baking Soda
- 1/2 cup Epsom Salt
- 20 drops Young Living Essential Oils
- 2 Tbsp. Distilled or Filtered Water
- Silicone or Plastic Molds (these are what I used)
Mix baking soda and Epsom salt in glass bowl. Slowly add 2 Tbsp. of water and stir until it is the consistency of wet sand. Add essential oils and mix thoroughly. Place into molds and pack tightly. Allow to dry for 24-48 hours before removing them from molds. Store in airtight container.
To use: Drop in a hot bath or place on the shower floor
Spa-like Atmosphere – Tea tree (Mel-A) and Eucalyptus
Relax and De-stress – Lavender and Peace & Calming or Lavender and Stress Away
