Oatmeal and Lavender Bath Bombs


One of my favorite things to do after a long and stressful day is to soak in the tub. There’s just something about warm water and a good, calming scent to let the stress melt away and relaxation set in. I don’t like commercial bath products though. In fact, I actually have an adverse reaction to most anything I can buy at the store so I prefer to just make my own homemade bath products. That’s why I love these Oatmeal and Lavender Stress Away Bath Bombs so much.

Soak up some relaxation with these DIY Oatmeal and Lavender Bath Bombs! They're perfect for that at home spa feeling or to give as a gift!

Lavender has calming properties so its perfect for making a homemade calming bath bomb. Combine that with the scent and healing and moisturizing properties of oatmeal and you have a winning combo that both your mind and body will love! These are amazing. Simply put. They’re almost as good as my green tea and peppermint bath soak, but then again? I’m partial to all of my homemade recipes.

These make a great gift too if you’re in need of one. Make them up the way I give you below then add a pretty container and bow and you’re all set! Depending on how thick you make each one, the recipe below will make around 12 bath bombs. I make mine without any coloring but if you want to add color to yours, add a few drops of food coloring to the mix when you add the water before you mold them.

In a large mixing bowl mix the baking soda, cornstarch and oatmeal and stir until it’s well combined.

Next, mix in the almond oil and the lavender oil then slowly add the water and stir.  If you’re using food coloring, add it before you stir. You want to add just enough water so that your mixture sticks together and you can form a ball. You may need a bit more than or less than I have listed depending on how humid your home is.

Sprinkle a little bit of oats into each mold to give it a prettier look and a bit of texture.

Fill each mold cup with a few tablespoons of the mixture. You’ll want to fill each mold about halfway. Once their full, set aside.

Allow all ingredients to dry overnight in the molds. They’ll still be crumbly if you try to use them after just a few hours so be sure you leave them along overnight so that they have time to set. If you get up the next morning and they’re still crumbly, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and bake them for 15-20 minutes in a 350 degree oven to fully harden. Allow them to cool completely then store in an air tight container until you’re ready to use them!
