Easy DIY Heart Bath Bombs for Valentine's Day
I've recently been obsessed with lush bath bombs. Those things are just the bomb! I can't seem to get myself to step into the bath without a bath bomb at hand. I then noticed that the cost of buying them seem to be getting impractical. So I started thinking, “Why should I continue to buy when I can make my own. It can't be that complicated, right?” And sure enough, it was as simple as I thought it would be. If you'd like to know how to make DIY bath bombs, this easy DIY tutorial will show you how. Get ready to have “a bomb” next time you step in your bathtub.
Watch this bath bomb diy video – then follow along with the steps below
What you'll need for your DIY bath bombs:
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup Epsom salts
- 1 tsp. water
- 2 tsp. essential oil
- 3 tsp. oil (olive oil)
- food coloring (any color you want)
- rose petals (dried ones work great too!)
- bath bomb mold
Step 1: Mix dry ingredients together.
Put all your dry ingredients in a bowl and mix them evenly with your whisk.
Step 2: Mix liquid ingredients separately.
In a different container, add all your liquid ingredients and mix them together.
Step 3: Mix dry and liquid ingredients together slowly.
Put a small amount of your liquid mixture to your dry ingredients and mix it thoroughly. Mix until all the liquid has been absorbed by your dry ingredients. Continue adding small amounts of the liquid mixture until you've used it all up.
Step 4: Put mixture into the mold.
Now that you've mixed all the ingredients together, time to put it in the mold. Put a little more than what your mold can hold on both sides and press them together until it clips. You'd want to put more so your mixture get pressed together making it solid.
Step 5: Press and tap ingredients into mold
Once it's pressed, gently tap it with a spoon to loosen your bath bomb.
Step 6: Dry the bath bomb
Let your creation dry for 1-2 days. And you're done!

Wasn't that fun and easy? I happen to love giving these as gifts and prefer to use these cute little cupcake boxes as gift boxes for my bath bombs! You can make these bath bombs in different colors and different shapes. Have fun with it! Mix in different colors in your mold to make a galaxy bath bomb, which are super fun to make. Another tip, you can also add other dried flowers like lavender or marigolds so when the bomb explodes, you'll get a nice flower bath too. How cool is that?!
