Valentine’s Day is almost a week away, which mean romance SZN is here! Whether you’re planning to spend it with your special someone or a solo night in, these heart-shaped peppermint bath bombs are perfect!
What you’ll need:
Heart shaped mold (we found ours at Michaels)
Bath Bomb Ingredients (makes approx. 2 bath bombs)
8 Tbsp baking soda
4 Tbsp corn starch
4 Tbsp citric acid (powdered form – we found ours at Bulk Barn)
4 Tbsp epsom salts
2 tsp water
2 tsp coconut oil (melted)
1 tsp of Peppermint essential oil (feel free to sub for another oil of of your choice)
1-2 drops of red food colouring
Rose Petals (optional)
Mix the dry ingredients (baking soda, corn starch, citric acid, epsom salts) together in a bowl and whisk until well combined
Then, mix all the wet ingredients (water, coconut oil, essential oil and food colouring) in a separate small bowl
Use an eyedropper or a teaspoon to slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry, only adding a few drops at a time and mixing in between. You want to avoid having the mixture fizz up, as this will ruin the fizzing of the bath bomb when you use it.
Once all your wet and dry are combined in one bowl, you can add some cut up rose petals into the mixture.
Test the “stickiness” of your mixture by making a ball shape and seeing if it stays together. You don’t want your mixture to be too dry or it won’t hold, so adjust accordingly by adding more coconut oil.
Press your bath bomb mixture into the molds. Let them sit for about 10 minutes, and then carefully remove them.
Place the bath bombs on a flat surface to dry, and place a towel in between the surface and the bombs. Let them dry for at least 24 hours.
Once they’ve dried, give them as a gift or treat yourself to a relaxing peppermint bath. I mean that’s what Valentine’s Day is all about, right? Loving yourself
