For day EIGHT of “12 Days of Essential Oil DIYs”, I attempted a slightly more complicated DIY (but still easy- don’t worry). As a bath addict, I knew that essential oil bath bombs would have to make the list. I take a hot bath almost every day. It’s how I decompress. While I LOVE Young Living’s bath bombs, I figured I could make some of my own at a fraction of the price, and I was right! Don’t be intimidated by this one. The bath bombs were easy (and fun) to make, they just take a little bit to dry!
Day 8: DIY Essential Oil Bath Bombs.
I’m going to explain how I made these, but I will caution you to change it up just a tad. Once the bath bombs were dry, they were slightly difficult to get out of the aluminum mold. I would highly suggest using silicon, and if you don’t care about a perfect sphere- an ice tray or food mold would work just fine! The oil blend I chose for these is Valor by Young Living. Valor is definitely my favorite blend for emotional support. It is a beautiful blend of Spruce, Rosewood, Blue Tansy and Frankincense. I couldn’t think of anything else I’d rather bathe in! (Pun intended.)
– 1/2 cup Epsom Salt
– 1/4 cup Fractionated Coconut Oil
– 1 cup Baking Soda
– 1 cup Citric Acid
– Witch Hazel in a Spray Bottle
– 1/2 cup Corn Starch
– 15 drops Essential Oils
1. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Mix in coconut oil and essential oils with hands.
3. Spray with witch hazel a few sprays at a time, followed by mixing- until consistency can be molded but not too wet.
4. Pack mixture into mold as tight as possible. If using the spherical molds, let both sides overflow a bit and smash them together to pack them tight.
5. Let dry overnight.

Once the bombs are dry, they should come right out of their molds and be ready for use! I may or may not have used some of the ones I made already…. Happy bath time!
