Happy Monday Beautiful People,
It’s time for another motivational monday post. One thing that I have found to be true is that you cannot take care of others unless you take care of yourself first. Taking time for self care is essential in achieving your goals as well as allowing you to take care of others to the best of your ability. You can find some ideas on how to create your self care routine by checking out my Self Care Routine Post. One of my favorite ways to decompress is to take a bath, especially since I have my new bath buddy! Water has always been a way to reset for me. From taking a bath, swimming, sitting in the ocean, or standing out in the rain; water is so healing for me. So today I am sharing with you my latest bath bomb recipe to make create some sunshine in your life. Make sure you check out my meals and exercise goals for the week as well as leave some comments down below!
Stress Relief Bath Bombs
Basic Bath Balm Ingredients:
1 cup citric acid- (You can find it on Amazon or if you don’t want to wait find it in the canning section aisle at the grocery store)
1 cup baking soda
½ cup cornstarch
½ cup melted coconut oil ( Don’t use fractionated coconut oil)
8-10 drops of essential oil(s) (I am using tangerine, lemongrass, and lime from Eden’s Garden)
Silicone molds or paper cupcake liners
Food coloring (optional)
In a bowl, mix together all of your dry ingredients (citric acid, baking soda, and cornstarch) and set aside. I am using the bowl from the Pampered Chef Kids Baking Set
If you’re using food coloring, now would be the time to add it into the dry ingredients. Just know it will clump up and you will need to use your hands or a spoon to break up the food coloring clumps.
Next add your essential oils to the mixture
Melt your coconut oil in a microwave safe measuring cup in 10 second increments. Pour the oil mixture into your dry ingredients. If you pour too quickly, the liquid will create a reaction with the citric acid.
Use your hands or spoon to knead everything together inside of the bowl until your ingredients start to clump together. You will know you are ready to start molding your mixture when it feels like the texture of wet sand.
Scoop the mixture into your papered muffin tin. The back of a spoon works perfectly to press your mixture in place.
Let your bath bombs dry for at least 24 hours, use them in the bath right away or pack them in a cute container and use for decoration until your next spa night.
