I am loving all the super easy DIY we can do at home that are great for our bodies and also so affordable!
Being a busy mom I have things in my life which are higher priority than others. In the past I would rather pay for something of higher quality vs doing or making it myself, especially if it’s something new to me. I admit it’s taken me over 2 years to really dive in with essential oils DIY. .. until now!
What an amazing way to use these top quality essential oils in even more ways around our home! I am SO excited to share this recipe and I may be even more excited to share he next one!!! Stay tuned for the next one 😉
This afternoon my boy and I made bath bombs! Super easy, very affordable and leaves your skin so soft!
We used the doTERRA Fizzing Bath Bombs Recipe see the directions below from doTERRA !
1 cup citric acid
1 cup baking soda
½ cup cornstarch
½ cup doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil
8-10 drops favorite essential oil or blend
Note: Citric acid can be found at most major supermarkets in the canning section.
Tip: You could also use almond oil or olive oil in the place of doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil.
In bowl, place citric acid, baking soda, cornstarch, and oil.
Add 8-10 drops of the essential oil or essential oil blend of your choice.
Mix well with spoon until soft dough is formed. It should have the consistency of damp sand.If the mixture is too wet, try adding a little more baking soda and cornstarch until consistency is correct.
At this point, you may add food coloring, dried herbs, or flower petals to mixture.
Place mixture in silicone molds. Let sit 24 hours before removing from mold.
To use, drop in tub or shower and allow to dissolve.
Note: Choose an essential oil to best suit your needs. For relaxation, try Lavender or Serenity®. For a mood boost, try Wild Orange, Citrus Bliss®, or Peppermint.
