DIY Peace + Calming Bath Bombs

Hellllllo there and happy Monday to ya!! I’m not sure how it’s Monday already, but here we are my friends. I hope you’re bright eyed and bushy tailed this morning, ready to take on a fresh new week. Or at least awake and moving, that counts too, right?! Right. Anyway, today I’m excited to be sharing a simple tutorial for DIY peace & calming bath bombs! I don’t know how many of you are bath-bomb-kinda-people, but they’re a big hit in our household. My kids LOOOOOOVE them and my daughters usually ask for a one every night when they take a bath. I love them too, but they can be kinda pricey when you’re using one or two every single day. Plus some of the bath bombs I’ve seen are full of chemicals and weird things I can’t even pronounce, so I decided to start making our own. And you guys, they are SO DANG EASY. We absolutely love them, so I thought it would be fun to share how we do it.

I actually got the idea to make our own bath bombs from the last issue of Joyful Life Magazine. I’ve raved about that magazine a few times now–it’s SO good. Anyway, the last issue had a simple recipe for bath bombs, so I gave it a try and now we are hooked. I just add my favorite essential oil, Peace and Calming.

DIY PEACE + CALMING BATH BOMBS

  • bath bomb molds
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup citric acid
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 12 drops Peace + Calming essential oil (or any oil of your choice). Add more drops for a stronger scent.

  1. Combine the citric acid, baking soda, and cornstarch in large mixing bowl.
  2. Melt coconut oil until fully liquid.
  3. Add coconut oil and essential oils to the dry ingredients. Combine thoroughly until mixture is crumbly.
  4. Fill the mixture in bath bomb molds. (it works better when you overfill each half a little ) Then firmly press the two sides of the molds together and twist. Remove the molds and set bath bomb aside to dry.
  5. Let the bath bombs set up for about 24 hours and enjoy!

Voila! Seriously, these DIY bath bombs are SO easy. I made this batch yesterday and it took about 20 minutes from start to finish. And this is the kind of thing the kids love helping with too. I let them fill the molds and they have so much fun with it. PS: I bought these molds from Amazon and they’ve been working really well. Plus I love how they come with different sizes.

If you want the bath bombs to be colorful you could add in food coloring or even dried flower petals. I like them simple and clean, so I prefer to make them like this, but you can definitely get creative with it! And the cool thing about these is they actually get fizzy and bubbly just like the ones we used to buy from the store. Plus the coconut oil is super moisturizing for your skin and they aren’t full of tons of weird chemicals. AND peace and calming oil is basically the most relaxing oil ever, so these are perfect to enjoy at the end of the day. Or if you have very energetic children. Either/or. These are seriously the best bath bombs!

Well I hope you give these DIY bath bombs a try and make a batch yourself. I think you’ll love them. These also make really fun gifts too–just throw a few in a jar and tie a pretty bow on it. BOOM. Your bath-loving-friends will praise you.

Thanks for dropping by the blog today!! xo

  • My little kitchen island is one of my favorite things in our home + I always get so many questions about it. It was actually made from reclaimed barn wood & we’ve had it over 10 years now 😍😍 I bought it when we moved into our first home & it’s been with us ever since. I kinda have an emotional connection to it nowβ€”it’s been through so much with us. Do you have furniture like that?? I’ll probably still have this island in my kitchen when I’m an old granny! πŸ‘΅πŸ»β€οΈ
