Again cold weather and rainy. Dior and I decided to relax our bodies . As I know detoxing the body more often helps to boost the immunity . So I read about bath bombs which are getting famous nowadays.
I decided to make red bath bomb and named rosy red. Dior decided to name his bath bomb “ninja turtle” since it is green.
We used baking soda, epsom salt , citric acid, corn starch, coconut oil and essential oils.
Baking soda and epsom salt– detox the body. They can be used even for babies . Only in small amount
Citric acid-according to Livestrong.com “Citric acid’s chemical properties as a weak organic acid make it a powerful water softener. It works by breaking down the trace amounts of metal found in water, making it an ideal all-natural choice for treating hard water.”
Corn starch– helps to harden the ingredients to give a easy shape
Coconut oil– is the best moisturizer . It prevents the skin not to get dry
Essential oils- we used eucalyptus for our “ninja turtle” bombs. Eucalyptus helps to ease the cold and flu symptoms . It has a property of drying excessive mucous.
Rose oil – has a great and soft smell. And not only smell but it is also known as antidepressant . Oh boy, how we mothers need that.
So let’s start
1 cup baking soda
0.5 cup citric acid
0.5 corn starch
0.5 epsom salt
1.Mix all the ingredients.
2 . Put in the shape
3. Keep in the freezer for 1 hr
4. Drop bombs to your bath Voila get in there and relax. It is only 3 steps . How easy is that? Extra fun time for kids
1. Don’t use essential oil kids under 4 years old or with ought doctor consultation.
2. I recommend to get a bath bomb molds . We had a difficulty to keep the shape withought molds.
