1) DIY BATH BOMBS
•1 cup baking soda
•1/2 cup citric acid
•1/2 cup Epsom salts
•1 tsp. water
•2 tsp. essential oil
•3 tsp. oil (olive oil)
•Food coloring (Any color of your choice)
•Bath bomb mold, or egg poach
1) Put all your dry ingredients in a bowl and mix them evenly with your whisk. In a different container, add all your liquid ingredients and mix them together. Put a small amount of your liquid mixture to your dry ingredients and mix it thoroughly. Mix until all the liquids have been absorbed by your dry ingredients. Continue adding small amounts of the liquid mixture until you've used it all up.
2) Now that you've mixed all of the ingredients together, time to put it in the mold. Put a little more than what your mold can hold on both sides and press them together until it clips. Once it's in the mold, put it in the freezer for about an hour or longer, and gently tap on both sides with a spoon, and take your bath bomb out.
2) BLUEBERRY LEMON BODY SCRUB
•1/2 cup coconut oil
•1 cup white sugar
•1 tbsp freeze dried blueberries
•Few drops of lemon oil essentials
•1 small drop of blue food coloring (optional)
1) Start by breaking down the freeze dried blueberries. You can do this by smashing them with your fingers or using the food processor. Once you have that part taken care of, add the sugar, coconut oil, essential oil and optional food coloring. Mix until well combined. If using the food coloring, you may need to pay a little extra attention to make sure the color is evenly mixed in.
2) Optional, if you have fresh lemon, you could zest 1 small lemon onto a tray or oven safe dish and then dry it by placing it in the oven at 350 F for a few minutes. You'll know it's ready when you start to smell a robust lemon scent coming from the oven. Stay close, it only takes a few minutes. It's certainly an extra step but would be so pretty mixed in with the blue! Like using fresh blueberries, you could certainly use fresh lemon zest if you plan to use this within a week or so, you might just want to keep it refrigerated if you go fresh.
3) Store in an airtight container and take a little extra care when using as the coconut oil will make surfaces seem slicker. I typically apply a scrub like this as the last thing I do in the shower, then rinse off and pat dry with a towel to leave as much of the coconut oil on as it is very moisturizing for your skin.
3) PEPPERMINT BATH SALTS
•3 cups epsom salt
•2 cups sea salt
•1 cup baking soda
•Red food coloring (optional)
1) In a large bowl, combine epson salt, sea salt, and baking soda
2) Add in peppermint oil and stir or whisk to distribute evenly. I would use about 15-20 drops of peppermint oil. Add more or less depending on your preference.
3) Divide bath salts in half. Use a separate bowl to color bath salts with 4-6 drops of red food coloring.
4) Layer bath salts in jar. I would use about two heaping tablespoons per layer and pressed the salts down before adding a new layer.
