DIY Bath bombs are exactly what you need for your next bath! 

Nothing quite gets you as relaxed as a long, hot bath.

So let your worries drift away with one of these DIY bath bombs!

They make great gifts too!

I love all the benefits you can get from bath bombs, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t love tossing a ball in and watching it fizzle away?

I mean how awesome does this look:

Who wouldn’t want a weird ball of Epsom Salt fizzing in your bathtub doing awesome things to your skin?

What Is a Bath Bomb?

To put things simply it’s a ball of ingredients that include salts, colorants, oils and some random surprises depending on the recipes. It’s very similar to dropping an Alka-Seltzer into a glass of water.

As the bath bomb breaks up it begins to release the fragrances and skin-conditioning ingredients.

The bath bomb adds oils to the water which in turn helps to condition the skin.

Everything else? It’s a fancy show but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t treat yourself to the experience!

Below are some of my favorite DIY bath bomb recipes and ideas for homemade bath bombs including fizzy bath bombs, unique bath bombs and special bath bombs for holidays.

Homemade DIY Bath Bombs

Bath bombs are produced by a company called LUSH. Their bath bombs are so nice.

The problem is, bath bombs aren’t super cheap. Having to pay a few Dollars per bath really does add up!

That’s where DIY skills come in handy!
