Baths are just the best way to wind down. Maybe a little music, or a nice book… some wine may or may not be involved but who’s to say.
Bath bombs are such a fantastic addition to a bath, they are practically the grown up version of bubble baths. Just kidding, bubble baths are also great.
Making your own bath bombs will cost a little more money upfront than going to lush and getting a few, but you can make multiple batches with these ingredients you will need. In the end, it’s gonna be wayyyyy more cost friendly than expensive places like lush.
The best part of all in my opinion is you know exactly what’s in them. A lot of beauty companies intentionally don’t disclose what they are putting in their products, which is a huge no no for me.
Since you are making them yourself you can also customize the scent. I personally chose lavender and peppermint for this one, but you can mix and match what you like. Just make sure to always do your research before using different essential oils.
Don’t get me wrong, this is an amazing treat for yourself that will leave you totally relaxed. But, this is just the perfect gift to give to a loved one for :
Pop it into a small mason jar and use the FREE printable labels I have below and you have yourself an adorable and thoughtful gift!
Okay, but truly the best part about this is it takes 10 minutes or less to make. Let’s get into it!
Lavender is the bees knees, and it’s essential oil is kind of a jack of all trades. Here are just some of it’s many benefits: Anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-septic, and anti-bacterial. Source.
What does that ultimately boil down to?
Well, things like nourished skin- especially if you have inflammatory skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis, or just plain ol’ dry skin.
Reduction in stress and anxiety. Source.
This is just to name a few. All this to say, it’s a great ingredient in your lip scrub!
Peppermint is incredibly soothing and anti-inflammatory which makes it the perfect addition to your bath bomb for achy muscles.
It can help with inflammatory conditions such as joint pain, menstrual cramps, itchiness, morning sickness, nausea, etc. Source.
