I love taking bubble baths. Back in the day I remember these little oil packets I would buy to throw in the tub and they would dissolve. I never knew what they were for, but they would make the water smell amazing. 

Then I discovered bath bombs. Little balls of fizz that you add to your bath for a nice relaxing bath, they can be full of essential oils and salts that make for a perfect bath experience. Bath bombs sell for around $4-$10 each. I can’t image buying a $10 bath bomb! I love a bargain so I always choose to make my own, which costs less than $1.50 each.

Bath bombs are fairy easy to make yourself as long as you have the correct measurements so they are not too wet and not too crumbly.

I love to wrap these up in a cellophane bag and give them to my friends, son’s teacher or my neighbor for helping me out. Almost everyone enjoys handmade gifts they can use to pamper themselves.

Store bath bombs in an airtight container when not using.
