diy: lavender vanilla bath bombs

DIY lavender vanilla bath bombs These are the bomb. They smell great and make your skin feel buttery-soft. I like to pop 3-4 into the bathtub at a time. These also make sweet gifts to anyone who needs a little pampering.

what you need: 1/2 cup powdered citric acid, 1 cup baking soda, 10 drops lavender oil, 5 drops vanilla oil, 1/2 tbsp almond oil, silicone mold

Whisk together the citric acid and baking soda. Add oils and combine. Add a few spritzes of water if the mixture feels too dry; it should slightly clump together when balled up in your hand. Transfer mixture to silicone mold of your choice and pack down tightly. Place in the freezer for 1 hour, or let dry out overnight. Carefully remove them from the silicone mold and voila! To use, simply drop into bathtub with running hot water.
