How to Make Lavender Bath Bombs

DIY Lavender bath Bombs

If you’ve read any of my other posts then you might know I’m a huge fan of bath bombs, well any bath and body products really. I also LOVE the scent of Lavender, so I decided to make my own Lavender bath bombs!

I was surprised at how easy these were to make and contain mostly ingredients we already had around the house.

I did order the citric acid and bath bomb molds. If you do not have bath bomb molds you can easily just use muffin tins or any other types of molds. You can also leave the food coloring out if you to leave them more natural. I personally like the purple color and haven’t had any problem with them staining the bathtub. 

I was able to make 6 tennis ball size bath bombs using the recipe below, but the amount will vary depending on the type of molds you use.

These would also make great gifts to give out around the holiday season!
