This DIY Seaweed and Essential Oil Bath Bomb Brings the Spa Experience Home

We didn’t know there was anything better than lounging in a hot, steamy tub … until bath bombs came along. These little spheres are easy to make at home. Packed with simple yet luxurious ingredients like olive oil, essential oils, plus safe-for-skin natural food coloring, they also feature an organic Bladderwrack seaweed blend brimming with 65 vitamins and minerals sourced straight from the sea. Each little ball of goodness also fizzes and foams when you plop it into bathwater (you can thank the baking soda and citric acid for that little trick). Since bath bombs are a cinch to make, they’re perfect for DIY gifting, and we’ve got a few ideas for scent blends to try, too.

Time to Relax: Lavender + Cedarwood

Winter Vibes: Rosemary + Cinnamon + Cedarwood

Rise and Shine: Orange + Lemon
