DIY Valentine Inspired Bath Bombs & Free Printable

Today, we’re sharing how to make your own DIY Valentine inspired bath bombs without using citric acid.

After easing into the new year, I’m committed more than ever to finding simple daily routines that not only work but make life easier too!

Part of my nightly routine is a hot soak or bubble bath each night to decompress from the day.

I try to make it an experience listening to a podcast, reading a book or magazine, lighting candles, journaling my thoughts, or having a little at-home spa sesh with a face and hair mask.

Most of the time, I’m able to sneak out around 30 minutes to an hour every night which feels like the biggest blessing.

While I know some of you may not be able to carve out an hour every night, I’m hoping you can find something relaxing that’s just for you.

If you enjoy a good tub soak or know someone that does these DIY Valentine Inspired Bath Bombs are easy to make and can be given as a gift for any occasion.

Here’s a peek at how you can make DIY Bath Bombs for Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day…

Valentine Bath Bombs Recipe: 

  • 1 cup Baking Soda
  • ½ cup Cream of Tartar
  • ½ Corn Starch
  • 2 ½ tablespoons Epsom Salts
  • 2 ½ tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • ¼- ½ teaspoon Essential Oils of Your Choice (we used lavender and eucalyptus)
  • 3-5 tablespoons of Water
  • Food Coloring or Color Pigments (if desired)

Steps:

In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients: baking soda,

cream of tartar,

corn starch and

Epsom salts,

with a whisk.

Slowly add the coconut oil,

and the essential oils mixing together with the whisk.

Next, slowly add one tablespoon of water (this will cause a bit of fizzing) stirring after each tablespoon until the Valentine inspired bath bomb mixture is like wet sand.

If your mixture is too wet, add a few more dry ingredients until you have the correct consistency.

Scoop mixture into a clean and completely dry small cake, muffin, or candy mold

or consider making a bath bomb ball and placing it into the mold

Gently press the Valentine inspired bath bomb mixture into the mold until the mold has been filled to the desired amount.

The mixture will rise so it’s best to not overfill.

Keep in Mind…

I completely understand that using food dyes or food coloring pigments can be a little controversial. So, I’m going to let you guys decide if you want to use any additional coloring or not.

I wanted to see how they would turn out so I used a little bit of purple and a little bit of pink since these DIY Bath Bombs are Valentine’s and Galentine’s Day inspired.

Keep in mind, the more food coloring you use the more coloring that will show up in your bathtub and you don’t want to stain your tub!

Allow bath bomb mixture to sit for approximately 24 hours

before taking bath bombs out of the molds.

Be very careful when you’re taking them out of the molds, as they will be delicate and can easily break.

The hearts are definitely my favorite.

The colored ones remind me of Mentos or puffed up Necco Wafers ?

Did you ever eat those when you were little?

Honestly, these Valentine-inspired bath bombs are so easy you can make some for yourself, your family, friends, or your best girlfriends.

It’s a super simple way to let them know how much you appreciate their love this Valentine’s season.

The “fizz” probably won’t win you any ribbons at the science fair but the sentiment is definitely blue ribbon worthy.

You can make a little envelope from parchment paper to make the bath bombs easier to transport and giveaway.

They were also cute in our DIY Valentine Gift Box Container too!

    1. I could seriously make a hobby out of taking a bath, Christine, it’s definitely something I look forward to every night. These definitely don’t have the fizz like you’re probably used to since they don’t have the citric acid component but they smell good and you can make them into all sorts of fun shapes. Sometimes, I leave them out for display too. Hugs, CoCo
