This Mother’s Day gift is da bomb, for many reasons! It is a fun DIY project that creates a beautiful token of appreciation and it’s a great way for mom to get a little R&R. For this Try It Out Tuesday, Kila Peeples made bath bombs using items that are most likely already in your home. Not only do they smell great, thanks to the essential oils that are added, but they are a great way to let mom know that she deserves a few moments of bath time bliss. The bombs are easy to make:

DIY Bath Bombs

- 1 cup Baking Soda

- 1/2 cup Cornstarch

- 1/2 cup Epsom Salt

- 2 Tbls Lemon Juice

- 1/2 cup Water


- Dried Flowers

- Essential Oils

- Food Coloring

Mix baking soda, cornstarch, and Epsom salt in a bowl.

Separate mixture into small cups or bowls, to add varied essential oils, colors, or dried flowers.

Mix water and lemon juice in a spray bottle, add your essential oils and coloring as well, shake well and spray 4-5 pumps into dry mixture and stir. Do this until the mixture is crumbly yet moist.

In your mold container, add dried flowers to the bottom. (optional)

Add bomb mixture to mold containers and pack tightly.

For the bombs to dry, place molds in either the freezer for 12-24 hours or the refrigerator for 24-48 hours. The longer, the better.

Take bombs out of the molds, and wrap for mom to open!

Watch the video above to see the bath bombs finished look!
