Bath bombs are all the rage in the home spa and self care world right now and they have been for a few years, and we love them so much that we don’t have a single complaint about that! As much fun as it is to look at all of the great smelling, colourful options in stores, however, we’ve always wondered whether we could just make our own at home, giving ourselves more control over colour, smell, and even shape.
Just in case you love the idea of making your very own homemade bath bombs just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the very best ideas that we’ve come across so far in our search for info and inspiration!
1. Simple homemade bath bombs
Is this actually your very first time making bath bombs at home and you’re not sure how confident you’re feeling yet because you’re a bit of a DIY beginner, but you’re still determined to make it happen? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how Inspired By Charm made these simple, nice smelling, pastel coloured bath bombs in just a few surprisingly simple steps.
2. DIY unicorn bath bombs
Bath bombs aren’t the only thing trending right now; just about everything you’ll find in stores besides the local bath treats store is unicorn themed! Personally, we’re huge fans of the whole concept, so you can imagine just how excited we were when we came across these fantastic swirling pastel homemade bath bombs that are shaped like unicorn horns. A Pumpkin and A Princess added a few star shaped glitter flakes for fun too!
3. Dried rose bath bombs
Not everyone wants to learn how to make bath bombs so they can play with shape, colour, and theme. Some people also like having a little more control over what goes into their bath products too because they prefer to keep things all natural whenever possible! If that sounds like you, then we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how these lovely dried rose bath bombs featured on Beauty Crafter were made.
4. DIY unicorn frappuccino bath bomb
Besides unicorns and bath bombs, is your very favourite thing a nice trip to Starbucks for a delicious drink? In that case, we have a feeling this next idea from A Pumpkin and A Princess is going to be right up your alley! They might not have shaped these ones to look like part of a unicorn itself, but they do look exactly like miniature versions of the time Starbucks released a super sweet unicorn inspired frappucino drink that sent us all into a cheerful tizzy.
5. DIY oatmeal bath bombs
If you are the kind of person who is very into natural ingredients based products and self care or beauty techniques, then we have no doubt that you already know about the benefits of taking a good oatmeal bath. That’s the kind of thing this next idea was actually based in and born out of! Take a look at Soap Queen to learn how these fantastic DIY oatmeal bath bombs were made.
6. Lemon vanilla bath bombs
If you’re going to make a bath bomb that you get to choose the scent of, would you rather go for something that’s a little bit sweet but also a little bit fresh and definitely more unique than what you might find in stores? In that case, we think you simply must take a look at the way Mom Always Finds Out made these absolutely lovely smelling lemon vanilla bath bombs.
