The stressed out Mom (show me the Mom who isn’t stressed) deserves to be pampered on Mother’s Day. Bath bombs are a perfect, inexpensive gift that also happens to be so trendy right now!
You can spend a small fortune at places like Lush (and fight the mall crowds), or you can whip up your bath bombs for a fraction of the cost. So grab your kiddos or girlfriends and throw a little bath bomb making party!
Lemon Bath Bomb
These lemon bath bombs from A Pumpkin and a Princess are almost too gorgeous to use! You’ll want to display these in an apothecary jar or some other clear container that shows off their beauty.
Fizzy Cupcake Bath Bombs
These delightful fizzy cupcake bath bombs are cute enough to eat – and they’re a lot better for you than real cupcakes! You actually use royal icing frosting for the top decoration, which you can either put in the bath or take it off before adding it to the tub.
Create Your Own Scent Fizzy Bath Bombs
This is a great basic (and easy) recipe for making bath bombs. Just use any essential oil that you like to add fragrance.
She suggests using silicon molds to make shaped bath bombs, which you can find in loads of different shapes at your local craft store or Amazon. I also love the presentation of adding lavender or another dried flower to the jar!
Cocoa Bath Bombs
These scrumptious-looking bath bombs could actually be good for you! The cocoa powder helps firm skin and reduce puffiness, while the cocoa butter is rich in anti-oxidants that will help keep skin supple.
All this, and they’re calorie free!
Hidden Color Bath Bombs
They may look a little plain, but these bath bombs have a hidden surprise…they change color as soon as you add them to the water! Fun for kids to make, and Mom or Grandma will enjoy the hidden surprise.
Starfish Bath Bombs
Bring a touch of the ocean to your bath with these colorful starfish bath bombs. You can find the silicon molds at your local craft store or at Amazon.
Lavender Bath Bombs
Not only are these lavender bath bombs a fun color, but they will help you get a better night’s sleep. Lavender is supposed to have a calming, relaxing effect, which is why it’s added to so many nighttime bath oils and lotions.
Tie-Dye Bath Bombs
These groovy tie-dye bath bombs are a blast from the past! She even recommends using “Flower Child Fragrance Oil”…what a throwback! Of course, you can use any fragrance you’d prefer.
Perfect for the Mom or Grandma who is truly a child of the 60s.
