Planning a bridal shower can be super stressful, but Pinterest makes it a whole lot easier! I spent hours scrolling through countless ideas before settling on spa themed favors. I am a big fan of DIY projects, obviously, so these bath bombs were perfect and super easy!
Here’s what you need:
- 12 Cups Baking Soda
- 6 Cups Citric Acid
- 6 Cups Epsom Salt
- 6 Cups Corn Starch
- 1 Cup Almond Oil
- 9 Tablespoons Water (add more if needed)
- 8 Tablespoons Essential Oil of your choice (more if wanted/needed)
- Soap Dye
- Bath Bomb Molds
I decided to use different essential oil and colors so I mixed everything together except the essential oils and colors. Once the mixture was together I separated them into different bowls. After that I added the color to each bowl as well as the essential oils I picked.
Next comes the fun part…forming the bath bombs! When all of the bath bombs are formed set them aside and let dry for 24 hours. I actually allowed mine to sit out for 2 days before putting them into bags and wrapping them in tulle and ribbon.
There you have it! Bath Bomb Bridal Shower Favors!
“From the Bride’s Shower to Yours!”
**This recipe made about 50 of the size 2 bath bombs.
I found that it is cheaper to buy the baking soda, epsom salt, and corn starch at WalMart.
I bought 2 oz bottles of Almond Oil at Sally’s Beauty for $2.79
I bought the follow on Amazon –
Make sure the mixture isn’t too wet or too dry. Neither are good for forming the bombs.
I found rinsing out the molds and making sure they were dry after a few uses helped keep them easy to use. Without rinsing out the molds you’ll find that they bombs get stuck and pull apart.
