DIY Lavender Bath Bombs

After a long day, what could be nicer than a homemade bath bomb? I know what you are thinking, making homemade bath bombs sounds like a lot of work. Especially after a long day. But, hear me out. This recipe is so easy to make! You probably have everything you need for this recipe at home already. This is just about as fuss free as making bath bombs gets!

Lavender Bath Bombs

Lavender Bath Bombs

Made with common pantry staples like corn starch, cream of tartar and coconut oil, these are so simple to make and they really make your skin feel luxuriously soft and silky. They are totally worth the effort! I used a simple muffin pan to shape mine, but there is no limit to the shapes you can form these bath bombs into.

I love the scent of lavender and I always try to keep a bottle of lavender essential oil on hand to help me relax, so that is the fragrance I went with for these. But, this is a versatile recipe; you can switch out the fragrance or the colour to suit your preferences.

Bath Bombs Gifts

Soaking in the tub after work is my favorite form of self care. I love feeling the tension melt away in the warm water. It gives me a chance to reflect on my day and relax. Whenever possible, I like to give self care gifts to my friends and family, and these DIY Luscious Lavender Bath Bombs are perfect for gifting without going broke! Be sure to bookmark or pin this post for later; you will certainly want to make these again closer to the holidays.

How To Make Lavender Bath Bombs

In a large mixing bowl, mix all dry ingredients: baking soda, cream of tartar, cornstarch, and Epsom salts.

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 lavender 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.
