How to Make a Luscious Lavender Bath Bomb

Fragrant bath bombs make bathing so much more fun and enjoyable. For this project, I used a small muffin pan, lavender pure essential oil for a relaxing effect and some purple food colouring for my desired colour. But feel free to get creative! Discover other molds to create floral or heart shapes. Select your favourite pure essential oils for the scent you’re looking for. And add food colouring to give each lavender bath bomb some colour. These Lavender Bath Bombs are also perfect for gift giving like Mother’s Day or for a spa party with your friends!

In a separate small bowl, mix all wet ingredients: water, lavender essential oil, coconut oil, and food colouring.

 

Bath Bomb in process 3

 

Mix wet and dry ingredients. Your mixture should resemble wet sand. Adding the food colouring helps you figure out if you combined all the ingredients well. An even colour means a good mix! When you squeeze some in your fist, it should hold together. If it doesn’t, add water—just a few drops at a time until a desired consistency is reached.

Tightly pack mixture down into your mold.

Let it dry for 24 hours. Do not remove your bath bombs from the mold until the mixture is completely dry. 

Recommendations

To make your bath bombs extra special, add dried flowers, non-toxic glitter, and/or sugar cake decorations

  1. This sounds like fun to make and use. It also doesn’t sound too difficult to make and it certainly looks good as a present too.

  2. What a nice home made gift idea! I imagine it would work well with other essential oils, no? Lavender is a scent that is very low on my preference list!

  3. These are surprisingly easy to make! This would make a great project for me and my daughters to do with my grandchildren! Thanks

  4. I had no idea that making these bath bombs was so easy but I’d have to find a different scent because I don’t like lavender

  5. This is a wonderful idea! I especially like the recommendations of mixing in dried flowers and/or non-toxic glitter; I can imagine how truly pretty that would be!

  6. I have wanted to make bath bombs for awhile now and am so glad that I checked out your post. I did not know it was this easy to make them and lavender is one of my favourite scents.
