DIY Holiday Bath Bombs

We’ve had so much fun making DIY gifts for the holidays this year, that we decided to make more! So far we’ve made Gingerbread Body Scrub and Gingerbread Lotion, and I thought these Holiday bath bombs would go along with them perfectly! You can make these to give as a gift, or keep for yourself for a nice relaxing bath during the holiday season!

I even made a few in a silicone muffin pan for the kids to use, and let me tell you, they smell amazing and produce a massive amount of fizz! The kids loved it! 

 If you are looking for bath bomb molds, you can find the ones I used on Amazon here. You can also use clear plastic ornaments for molds, which are easy to find this time of year! You can also find the  Citric Acid online on Amazon.
