If you love sweet berries, aromatic teas and hot baths, you’re going to LOVE these Forest Berries & Tea Bath Bombs!
I am alllllll for the pampering! There is nothing I love more than soaking in a hot bath at the end of a long, busy day. Its the perfect way to unwind and let the stress of the way melt away. Adding in a diy bath bomb is pretty much just the icing on the proverbial cake!
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
Forest Berries & Tea Bath Bombs Supplies:
- 2 cups baking soda
- 1 cup citric acid
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 cup dead sea salts
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon polysorbate 80
- Pink or red soap colorant
- 4 tea bags or 4 tablespoons of forest berries fruit tea
- Stainless steel bath bomb molds
- Spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol
- 1 large mixing bowl
Forest Berries & Tea Bath Bombs Directions:
Steps 1-5: In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, citric acid, dead sea salts and cornstarch. Whisk dry ingredients together.
Steps 6-7: Add 3 1/2 tablespoons of the forest berries fruit tea. Mix well.
Step 8: Add the coconut oil. This binds all the ingredients together, so you bath bombs don’t crumble when you touch them!
Steps 9-10: Add the polysorbate 80. This helps the coconut oil disperse more evenly in your bath water, makes the bath bombs bubbly and prevents the mica from sticking to the side of the tub. Mix well.
You may need to use your hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is mixed in. The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand.
Steps 11–12: Add 1-2 drops of the pink or red colorant. Mix well. Continue to add 1 drop of color until you achieve the color you desire.
Steps 13-16: Add a bit of the forest berries fruit tea into one side of the mold. Gently add the bath bomb mixture until the mold is overflowing. Fill the other side of the mold with the mixture and press molds together and grind to remove excess mixture.
Step 17: Gently tap each side of the mold to release the bombs. Allow to dry a minimum of 24 hours. If your climate is wet or cold, allow an additional 24 hours. My rule of thumb is that when it is hard to the touch, they are ready for the tub! Store in an airtight container until ready for use.
