Save Some Cash By Creating a Bath Bomb with Supplies You Already Have

While a glass of wine, a good book, or a plethora of bubbles can be the perfect addition to a hot bath, a bath bomb is also a popular option. Bath bombs often range from five to fifteen dollars each, but you don't have to spend money on this delightful indulgence. With this basic recipe, you will have a colorful, scented bath bomb in no time—and you’ll be that much closer your relaxing bath time routine.

Ingredients

1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup citric acid
1/2 cup Epsom salt
1/2 cup cornstarch
3/4 teaspoon water
2 teaspoon rose essential oil
2 teaspoons coconut oil
A few drops of food coloring.
Round plastic molds

Instructions

1. With the exception of the citric acid, mix the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

2. Pour all of the liquid ingredients in a jar with a top. Close the jar and shake it vigorously.

3. Pour the liquid mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients, and use your hands to combine and meld together. At this point, add the citric acid. You'll probably notice a slight fizzing reaction because of the citric acid. No need to panic, as this is totally normal.

4. Mash the mixture into your chosen molds very tightly. You may slightly overfill the molds and use a spoon or glass to press the mixture in as tightly as possible. Immediately loosen the bombs from their molds onto wax paper and let them dry overnight.

5. Give the bath bombs a day or two to completely dry before using them.

6. Pop one in the bathtub, enjoy the burst of colors and fizz and inhale the released aromas.
