  1. Just put in my first order of Plant Therapy Essential Oils… I can’t wait to get them. My son LOVES bath bomb baths, we will definitely be making some.

  2. I didn’t know you could make your own bath bombs, so I am excited to learn about this. I will be trying this out as soon as I can get all the supplies. Baths are relaxing!

  3. Excited to try this DIY recipe! I’ve been purchasing essential oil bath bombs but it adds up quick! Excited to save some money AND create some bath bombs that are tailored to me!

  4. Can someone tell me how long these will keep? I want to make them to hand out at a meeting next month. Will they keep that long?

    1. Joanne, the best way to preserve a bath bomb after you’ve made it is to wrap it up tightly in plastic wrap. That way the essential oils cannot evaporate and any moisture in the air won’t make the bombs prematurely fizz. If you do that, they are sure to last until your meeting 🙂

  5. Bath bombs are area of DIY bath products that I have not ventured into yet. I like the oils that are called for in this recipe so I may give it a try.

  6. Thanks for another great recipe! I actually have all these ingredients, yippee!!! Any idea how long these would stay good if I made a few or do they need to be used right away?

    1. Heather, make sure to store these in an airtight container in order to keep the aroma of the essential oils in the bath bomb a bit longer. You do not need to use them all right away, but as with any natural product, try to keep them as fresh as you can 🙂

  7. who cant use this everyone needs a relax and recharge thanks for always being thoughtful enough to share wonderful recipes with us….

  8. Anything with ho wood is a win for me! I’m not the crafty/diy type of person at all but I might just have to try making these!

  9. Amazing DIY idea and gift idea! VDay is coming soon. Never made bath bombs. I don’t have all of the ingredients though, so need to do some shopping.

  10. I have not tried my hand at making bath bombs but this recipe sounds so easy! I can’t wait to try these once I get the stitches out of my back lol!!! They will be ready and waiting by the bathtub!!!

    1. They are pretty similar. Often, shower discs are smaller, fizz maybe a bit less, and don’t have soap coloring. They’re also made flat of course so they don’t roll around while you’re trying to shower 🙂

  11. Can’t wait to try this one on my son. He plays sports and after a hard practice, I’m always looking for something to help him recover.

  12. We just moved over the weekend and this recipe sound heavenly! I don’t have any Mandarin…what would be a good substitute for that one?

  13. I know that using plastic containers isn’t safe. Are the Silicone molds okay to use to make these or are the stainless better?

    1. Connie, this really depends on your own preference. Personally, I like stainless better as I’m way too tempted to try to push my bath bombs out of silicone molds before they have dried completely 🙂

  14. I love my baths and this sounds like a slice of heaven! Going to order me some Ho Wood which has been on my wish list for a while and give it a try! I can’t wait!

  15. This looks amazing!! I have made bath bombs before but have not tried this combination of oils!! Can you switch out the frankincense with another to make it kidsafe?

  16. Too cold to go outside and Bath bombs is on my to-do list for today! Decided to check the blog before getting started. Thanks!
