DIY: Bath bombs

Skincare videos often appear in life via social media, and they are typically reviews or simplistic videos of beneficial products to improve oneself. However, one would usually think that the prices of such products are too overpriced. Mesmerizing colors along with such graceful yet vigorous movements are seen in basically every bath bomb video, but would one really spend money on a product that may contain harmful chemicals? Well, the solution to that is making your own.

Starting with a bowl of 2 ⅔ cups of baking soda, 1 ½ cups of Epsom salt, 1 ⅓ cups of citric acid, and 1 ½ cups of cornstarch; mix your dry ingredients together.

Measuring 6 tsp of essential oils of one’s preference, ½ cup of water, an optional step of the addition food coloring of one’s desire, and ½ of coconut oil; combine your wet mixture together.

Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry products, but make sure to add small spoonfuls of the liquid mixture at a time because it would activate the mixture. If that were to happen, the bath bomb would not fizz once dropped into water. Add your liquid until the mixture is able to be squeezed into a shape—keep in mind that the solution cannot be overly wet.

Once the mixture is ready, use any mold of choice and allow the bath bomb to dry for about two to three days.

Bath bombs allow you to bathe interestingly. Additionally, the ingredients in bath bombs causes the skin to increase in elastically to feel exceptionally soft and leave a pleasant aroma on the skin.
