I am a beauty product junkie! I hate to admit how much money I've spent on bath and body products. Making bath bombs at home is way less expensive and actually a pretty fun project! Also, controlling the ingredients that you include ensures that your product is completely natural. I have lots of essential oils that you can easily mix and match the scents. Lavender is my favourite :)

One tool that you will HAVE to have to make these is a  mould. Packing them with your hands just doesn't produce the same result. A mould packs the ingredients very tightly and also makes a perfect circle!

Baking soda is a key ingredient in this "recipe". Buying it in bulk is a great idea because you will be using a whole cup!

Epsom salts are another ingredient that you will need for these. You might not have these on-hand, but they are great not only for making the bombs, but also just using alone as a soak in your bath. They work wonders for sore muscles!

Citric acid is another key ingredient in the bombs. This might seem like a strange ingredient, but they work with the baking soda to get that fizz! Plus, it's a preservative which will keep your bombs fresh for a long time! It's also great for the regeneration of skin tissue and is commonly used in creams and anti-ageing products!

Using  essential oils in the bombs is a natural way to scent and moisturise your skin. Like I said, lavender is my favourite for relaxing but orange is great for lifting your spirits and getting motivated!
