This beautiful DIY bath bomb recipe made from natural essential oils would make the perfect homemade pamper present for a special someone.
I don’t have a lot of baths (mostly because I can never find the time to relax for that long LOL) but whenever I do I really enjoy them. I also love making my own homemade products – whether it be cleaning products, gifts, DIY projects or beauty products. I often search out homemade or DIY alternatives to products before buying them as you never know what kind of nasties may be hiding in the pre-made products, and it often works out cheaper to make your own cleaning/beauty/cooking products too. These lovely homemade bath bombs are so easy to make and are perfect for gifting to others or treating yourself!

FRACTIONATED COCONUT OIL – Fractionated Coconut Oil is an all-natural carrier oil that readily absorbs into the skin, making it an ideal oil for topical delivery. Its feather-light emollient effect provides a soothing barrier without clogging pores and is excellent for dry or troubled skin. It leaves skin feeling silky smooth and non-greasy, unlike other vegetable carrier oils. Fractionated coconut oil is completely soluble with all essential oils and is colourless, odourless, and will not stain.
