Bath bombs are such great way to relax. I have two kids and a full time job, so the only time I get to escape is when I am either showering or bathing. Not only is the bath bomb a great way to relax but there are many beneficial factors. Some of the benefits includes: softening of the water which makes your body feel silky smooth, the essential oil used have certain properties that help with ailments such as aching muscles, insomnia and fatigue, and moisturizing of the skin. It is such a great way to enhance your bathing experience.

I usually purchase my bath bombs from Lush which varies in price depending on the size. It can run to about $4-$6 a bomb.  My four year old daughter loves it as well. She is a girly girl, so anything that is pink and has flowers catches her eyes. So it can also be something fun for the little ones. Another great idea is wrapping it up and giving them as gifts or favors. The possibilities are endless fun

I think using the plastic ball ornament for a mold is a super idea.

Don't forget the benefits of having the epsom salts in the bath bombs, that stuff's amazing, the baking soda's also really good for your skin and muscles too.

I also love that you used the ornament as a mold, such a great idea. And using the pre-made decorations is so cute and easy.

Do you have a recipe for your bombs? I'm always looking to try new bath stuff, and plus i really wanna know what the pop rocks are for, i've never seen that in a bath bomb recipe before

Thanks for the recipe! I think these are so wonderful! I got some from my sister last year for Christmas and fell in love with bath bombs, but can't wrap my brain around spending a ton of money on them. Awesome!

These look great.  The link for the instructions is broken.  Sad

... has anyone seen my shoes? I kicked them off in a fit of joy.
