I love giving away bath supplies as Bridal Shower and Baby Shower Favors, they are always appreciated by the lovely ladies and can be DIY-ed very easily! When I first thought of doing bath bombs the issue I had with giving them was twofold, first I couldn’t decide on a scents/colors and secondly I wanted to be able to make a lot of them.
The bath molds I bought from Amazon ended up solving both my problems because they came with a set of mini molds! As soon as I saw them I knew what I wanted to do, mini bath bomb trios as favors! Not only did I get to do a variety of colors and scents but they are small enough that you can add them to a foot bath or mix and match in a regular bath! An added bonus is that you can color these to your shower’s theme!
1. Mix citric acid, espom salts, baking soda, powdered coloring and cornstarch into a mixing bowl. Mix water, vegetable oil and essential oil in a separate bowl. Then add to dry ingredients and mix well. I made three batches of this mixture, then dyed and scented each batch as follows:
Purple – Lavender
Orange – Sweet Orange
Yellow – Lemongrass
2. Using the smallest of the molds, pack the mixture into the mold. Press the two sides together and compress the mixture into a bath bomb. I always try to be more generous with mixture than less so that your bath bombs stay solid and I was able to get 11-12 bath bombs per batch.
3. Carefully remove the mold and smooth around the seam of your bath bomb with your fingers to form a sphere and you’re done!
Since this was my first time making bath bombs I was a little nervous. Now that I’ve done it; it was so easy I feel silly! I ended up packaging mine in little cello bags that I tied with fishing line to gibe away to friends, but you could easily display them in jars or favor boxes! What bath themed favors would you give “from the bride’s shower to yours?” :)
