I love making gifts for my friends and family. Admittedly time is always a factor. I’d make more gifts if I had infinite time. These wonderful heart shaped bath bombs are so quick and easy. With a little pretty wrapping it’s a simple, cheap, yet pretty and well thought out DIY Valentine’s Day gift.

1/2 cup baking soda

1/2 cup citric acid

1/4 cup cornstarch

food coloring (color you wish)

therapeutic grade essential oil (I used peppermint) 4-5 drops

1/4 cup coconut oil

Heart shaped silicone mold


Mix baking soda, citric acid, and cornstarch in a large bowl.















Add food coloring. It can take time to mix. The food coloring tends to ball up with the dry ingredients. I used my fingers to break up and mix the coloring.
















Add essential oils

Microwave coconut oil until soft. It took about 30-40 seconds for me.

Mix coconut oil in mixture.















Put mixture in mold. Pack down mixture as tight as possible.

Leave to dry overnight.



This Valentine’s Day it is important to remember taking care of yourself. We can so easily get wrapped up in others, our children, our spouse, family, friends. Take a minute to yourself this Valentine’s Day. Below are some of my absolute favorite self-spa, bath, and relaxing products.
