DIY Bath Bomb

Bath bombs are everything right now in our house. Not only does my daughter (and nieces) enjoy them, us Mamas do too! It is so nice after a long day to hop in a hot bath, drop a bath bomb in, enjoy the aroma and get a couple free minutes to relax. If you haven’t tried one, you seriously are missing out! You need to run to the nearest store, gather up the ingredients and treat yo’self. Buying bath bombs can get expensive and when you have little ones that enjoy them as well, this is an easy and inexpensive alternative. A few of us Mom’s of Tulsa girls got together for a Sunday playdate last weekend and while our kids played, the Moms made some DIY bath bombs! This is an easy DIY recipe and a fun activity that your kids can be involved in too… all of our kiddos were just too preoccupied enjoying one another and running around, to stop and help. Not only are bath bombs fun to use, they are great to give as gifts to friends, teachers and relatives!DIY Bath Bombs
