Let’s get real. Christmas may be the most wonderful time of the year, but it also can be one of the most stressful seasons. Cooking, decorating, and trying to find that right gift can take its toll, which is why homemade bath bombs make the perfect Christmas present or stocking stuffer for friends, family, or neighbors. Full of nourishing ingredients for the skin, they also calm and comfort, taking away the cares of the day. In fact, these frothy, fizzy additives make bath time so much better you’ll definitely want to keep some for yourself!
And not only are homemade bath bombs inexpensive to create, they’re easy, too, and won’t take too much of your precious time during the holidays to make. In fact, they’re simple enough to be Christmas crafts for kids, as you’ll see from the child-friendly projects we’ve included. We’ve also found fun recipes that turn the tub super-colorful (hello rainbow bath bomb!), include honey and milk for an incredibly moisturizing experience, and even pamper with rose petals. And if you don’t have time to gather ingredients? No worries, you’ll find a couple bath bomb kits here to make things even easier. After you’ve gotten all your bath bombs made, be sure to take a peek at our peppermint and lavender bath salts tutorial, too.
