Plant Therapy Back-to-School DIY Immune-Boosting Essential Oil Bath Bombs

Back-to-School is a time when it seems like all of our kids o come down with a case of the “ickies.”

Germs can run rampant in classrooms and playgrounds, quickly causing those little bodies to feel sick. A nice, warm bath is a wonderful way to help them feel better, especially if it’s filled with calming and immune-supporting oils. Try these bath bombs to give your kiddos a fighting chance against germs to feel strong, healthy, and ready to take on the day!

Immune-Boosting Bath Bombs

What you’ll need:
What you’ll do:

First, mix together the dry ingredients. Slowly mix in the carrier oil and water. Push firmly into the molds and let dry overnight. Mix all of the essential oils with a bit of a carrier oil to help dilute efficiently and then put about 5 drops on each bath bomb after they have dried.


If you would like to use one of our synergies for this bath bomb recipe, we recommend KidSafe Immune Boom. Replace the total amount of drops in the recipe with Immune Boom, which includes the pure, undiluted essential oils of Lemon, Palmarosa, Dill Weed, Petitgrain, Copaiba Oleoresin, and Frankincense Carteri.

  1. Made bath bombs last week and they just fell apart. Not sure if we didn’t let them dry long enough or if we just didn’t pack them hard enough. Going to try this recipe next time and see if it comes out any better.

  2. Can’t wait to give these a try! With four kiddos in school, I can always use something to boost up immunity!

  3. I read on one of your other bath bomb recipes that if you want them to last more than a week, you need to add a preservative. Just wondering what you would suggest and how much? Thanks!

  4. This is a great recipe! I used this for the first time trying bath bombs, and it was so easy to make and they turned out amazing! I like that it calls for adding the oils after they’ve dried. My kids love watching them fiz in the bath.

  5. im going to make these with citrus oils such as the sweet orange, one of my favorites. I love taking baths and haven’t found any commercial bombs that didn’t have unwanted ingredietnts. I just sent this to my printer so I can make some and maybe even give as gifts for Christmas!

  6. After getting over our first round of sickness I’m looking forward to making this to help keep us healthy. The combo of oils sounds amazing. I can’t wait to make these.

    I’ve made zillions of bath bombs and these are hands down the best!! They stayed on top of the water and fizzed like crazy. This is the first tine I’ve added oils to the bomb after its hard and i really liked it. Ill continue to do that with all my bombs.
    The oils in this are amazing!! Exactly what i need right now with a sick kid! Thank you PT!

  8. I was searching for a bath bomb recipe and I am glad I found one here! And by the way, Retha looks so gorgeous with her new hair!

    1. You may just need to use less liquid as to not activate the ingredients. I would make a smaller batch and see how it works.

    1. Too much liquid or humidity in the air. You only want to use enough liquid so the powder stays formed when you drop it.

  9. I like when you all provide alternative essential oil blend recipes for therapeutic purposes besides the premade synergies. I often use immune Aid for immune support but I’m not always in the mood for the medicinal scents of Eucalyptus and citrus and I’m not into Dill so the kidsafe version is not appealing to me. This sounds like a nice immune support alternative and I look forward to trying it!

  10. Just sent this to my daughter who left for college last week. Hopefully it will help to ward off some of the dorm ickies!

  11. We’ve recently started dipping our toes into DIYs with our oils, and we just made these a few days ago!! They took a few days to dry due to our incredibly humid climate, but the smell is phenomenal, and the oils used in the recipe had the added benefit of being super calming – my kiddo was out like a light at bedtime!

  12. A friend gifted dandelion infused coconut oil (great friend right!) Can that be used with this or would the dandelions cause an issue?

  13. I’m curious as to why this recipe says to add the oils once the bath bombs have hardened as opposed to mixing them in with the other ingredients.

  14. I think these sound pretty amazing even if they are made for immune boosting. When I make some for the grandkids, I will make some for myself. They sound like a nice and sleep inducing bedtime routine.

  15. Is there a reason why the Essential oils are added at the end? I’ve always added mine along with the other liquid ingredients before I put the mixture into the molds. But I really like the sound of this blend!
