DIY Heart Shaped Valentine's Day Bath Bombs

DIY Heart Shaped Bath Bombs 
 


If you're like me, you absolutely LOVE bath bombs! Here are some super cute bath bombs to make and specifically made for Valentine's Day! 
What you'll need:
1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 cup citric acid
1/4 cup cornstarch
Pink food coloring (optional)
4-5 drops therapeutic grade peppermint essential oil (Use only therapeutic grade essential oils, non-therapeutic grade essential oils can cause skin irritation)
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
Wilton silicone heart mold
Directions:
1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all your baking soda, citric acid, and cornstarch and mix well.
2. Add a couple drops of pink food coloring to your bowl and mix with your fingertips (the liquid will ball up in the dry mixture).
3. Add your therapeutic grade essential oil drops and mix with your fingertips again.
4. Heat your coconut oil in the microwave for about 20 seconds (be careful as coconut oil heats very fast).
5. Add a little coconut oil at a time and mix with a fork.
6. Once all of your coconut oil is added, your mixtures should feel like damp sand.
7. Start filling your silicone mold with your mixture, making sure to press the damp mixture firmly into the molds.
8. Let dry overnight, then turn your mold upside down and carefully pop them out.
To Use

Place one of your heart-shaped bath bombs in the bottom of your shower or in your warm bathtub to release your bath bomb. Don’t rub your eyes during/after use.
