Valentine’s Day DIY: Heart Shaped Bath Bombs

I love making gifts for my friends and family. Admittedly time is always a factor. I’d make more gifts if I had infinite time. These wonderful heart shaped bath bombs are so quick and easy. With a little pretty wrapping it’s a simple, cheap, yet pretty and well thought out DIY Valentine’s Day gift.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup baking soda

1/2 cup citric acid

1/4 cup cornstarch

food coloring (color you wish)

therapeutic grade essential oil (I used peppermint) 4-5 drops

1/4 cup coconut oil

Heart shaped silicone mold

Steps:

Mix baking soda, citric acid, and cornstarch in a large bowl.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Add food coloring. It can take time to mix. The food coloring tends to ball up with the dry ingredients. I used my fingers to break up and mix the coloring.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Add essential oils

Microwave coconut oil until soft. It took about 30-40 seconds for me.

Mix coconut oil in mixture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Put mixture in mold. Pack down mixture as tight as possible.

Leave to dry overnight.

 

Self-Care

This Valentine’s Day it is important to remember taking care of yourself. We can so easily get wrapped up in others, our children, our spouse, family, friends. Take a minute to yourself this Valentine’s Day. Below are some of my absolute favorite self-spa, bath, and relaxing products.
