Imagine yourself with eyes closed in a teal-toned ocean that has white wave crests and heat from the sun shining down on you. Surrounded with the familiar scent of island coconuts, hibiscus flowers and salty goodness. While floating, you hear birds chirping and palm trees swaying in the wind. You open your eyes briefly and wait, you're in your...bath tub?!
Yes. We are about to give to you a bath bomb that will transform your bathroom into a private getaway that smells heavenly. Say goodbye to overpriced tickets to Bali and hello to a world of affordable bliss. With just a few drops of essential oils, some gorgeous coloring, and an imagination (which we know you have!) you'll be transported far away from your family, daily "can't even" moments and anything that causes you unrest. The best part? All it takes is awaiting your tub to fill and boom, off you go. Way better than a crowded flight with possible delays, or we think so at least.
Inner Mermaid Hippy Bath Bomb
Call us Ariel haters, but we'd like to have her opposite problem: to be a mermaid. Now, that's possible with the small steps below and a little patience! If you feel the same, read on...
What You Need:
- 1 Cup Baking Soda
- 1/2 Cup Citric Acid Powder
- Half Cup Corn Starch
- 1/2 Cup Epsom Salt, Magnesium Sulfate
- 3 Teaspoons Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
- 3 drops Grapefruit 100% Pure Essential Oil
- 2 Drops Patchouli Light 100% Pure Essential Oil
- 4 Drops Ylang Ylang I, II, III 100% Pure Essential Oil
How To Make The Bath Bomb:
Step 1: In one bowl mix together your dry ingredients (Baking Soda, Citric Acid, Corn Starch, Epsom Salt)
Step 2: In another bowl whirl together your liquid ingredients (Coconut Oil, Essential Oils)
Step 3: Slowly mix together the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients — note, you can add more coconut oil to this if the result isn’t sticking together as much as it should
Step 4: Now for the fun part! Take your sticky mix and place into the bath bomb molds! Fill them up to make sure they take the right shape.(Overflowing is 100% welcome, guys).
Step 5: Place the molds into the refrigerator for one hour.
Step 6: Drop in the bath and go to your oasis!
So there you have it, a way to channel your inner mermaid while pretending you are somewhere far away than actually just in your bathroom!
