Cupcake scented bath bombs loaded with sprinkles that will leave your skin feeling silky smooth.
I thought I would take a break from baking today and share a DIY project I did recently. It has been so dreary here in Washington lately. We have had over a week of below freezing temperatures, and now that it is warming up it has been constantly raining. YUCK! This is the hardest time of year for me, the excitement and glitter of Christmas is gone, and now the long wait until summer begins, a nice warm bath full of colorful sprinkles is just what I need during this gray time of year.
I love the bath bombs from LUSH, especially all the limited edition ones that come out for Valentine’s Day like this one, so I thought this would be a fun and useful project to try. These came together so quickly and easily, and I already had half of the ingredients needed to make them sitting in my cupboard! Now that’s my kind of DIY project! I scented the bath bombs with a sweet vanilla cupcake oil, and added a good helping of rainbow nonpareils to make them just like a funfetti cupcake.
- 250 g baking soda
- 120 g citric acid
- 120 g corn starch
- 120 g epsom salt
- 12 drops scented oil
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil
- 3-6 tablespoons water
- Combine baking soda, citric acid, corn starch, and epsom salt in a large bowl. Whisk together to make sure there are no lumps.
- Combine wet ingredients in a spray bottle (melt the coconut oil before adding if necessary).
- While whisking gradually spray the dry ingredients with the wet, until the mixture becomes the texture of damp sand, it should hold together when squeezed in your hand.
- Press firmly into molds, and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes before removing from the molds.
- Let dry on the counter overnight before using.
Make your own bath bombs, I would love to know what scents you try out!
