DIY Heart Bath Bombs
We are counting down the days until Valentine’s Day is here! This is always a fun holiday for us. My husband is an amazing guy and always out-does himself. We do cute little crafts for the kids to take to all of their friends at school and try to have some special family time too. If you’re still trying to decide what to get someone special, how about these DIY Heart Bath Bombs! You can do them in any color you choose, we just went with blue. You do need to give them some time to firm up, so just be sure to plan ahead.
- 1 Cup of Citric Acid
- 2 Cups of Baking Soda
- 1oz of Shea butter or coconut butter (melted)
- 5-6 drops of your favorite (or theirs) Essential Oil
- Mica Colorant (optional)
- Spray bottle of Witch Hazel
- *If you have a manicure, wear gloves, or use a fork during the mixing process.
- In a mixing bowl combine the citric acid and baking soda, being sure to remove all lumps.
- Add in mica, melted butter and essential oil and continue to mix.
- Using your spray bottle, spray the mixture 2-3 times and mix, slowly adding more witch hazel until the mixture holds it shaped when pressed together.
- Press the mixture into silicone molds, making sure to compact them tightly.
- Allow to dry in silicon molds for 12 hours. Once 12 hours is up, remove from molds, and allow to dry an additional 24 hours for a nice hard bath bomb.
I did not add in the time it takes these DIY Heart Bath Bombs to harden under the prep time because I didn’t want anyone to fall out of their chair if they saw 36 hours on there! Since Valentine’s day is just around the corner, you should be able to find a mini heart mold just about anywhere. But just in case you have trouble, here is one you can order and still have it in time. Be sure to check out all of our other crafts HERE! There are several Valentine ideas already on there so explore and have fun.
