Essential Oil Bath Bombs

Doesn’t it just add to the relief to have bath bombs that aren’t filled with toxic chemicals and fragrances? While a lot of self-sufficiency is learning the basics – growing and preserving food, natural remedies, etc. it is nice to learn those things that make you feel like you’re at a fancy spa. Minus the hormone disruption. 

These bath bombs can be customized using whatever essential oils that make your skirt fly up. I’ll throw a few of my favorite blends at the bottom, but these make great gifts. Once you get the hang of the texture, they are easy peasy. 

Some things you may not have on hand are linked: citric acid, bath bomb molds, and jojoba oil.
