Bath Bombs, Soaks and Scrubs…Oh My!!



We all bath to clean our bodies. We also have different ways of cleansing. Maybe you enjoy soaking in the tub to destress from the events of the day?  Maybe you enjoy an invigorating shower. Whatever you choose there is a Bath Bomb, Salt Scrub or Salt Soak waiting for you. Better yet, Why don’t you make your own? I’ve recently tried making some of the Bath Bombs and salt soaks from Kate Bello’s DIY Book: Homemade Bath Bombs, Salts & Scrubs. Let me just say I am having fun with these recipes. I’ve made a few Bath Bombs and salt scrubs and have so much fun making them.Look at my bath bomb (below), it looks so cute and smells fantastic. I chose Lavender and vanilla oils, and I can’t wait to try it out.


This is a fun book with over 300 Natural Recipes that you make yourself for your luxurious bath or energizing shower. The ingredients for the recipes mainly consist of salts, Epsom, Himalayan and Dead Sea to name a few. All the ingredients including the essential oils can be found on the internet or at your local health food store.  You can mix and match the oils depending on your sense of smell. I love lavender, so I substituted an oil in the recipe for lavender essential oils, and it smells amazing. I haven’t experimented with color, but I will, you can count on it.

Homemade Bath Bombs, Salts & Scrubs provides detailed instructions on how to make each recipe. They are easy to understand, so there is no guesswork involved. Carrier Oils, essential oils, clays, and salts are all explained in detail for you. What I found amazing is that there is a recipe for practically every ailment that exists. Well, maybe not every ailment but enough choices that you will find a recipe that you will “Have to Make”.

There are recipes for Asthma relief, Athlete’s Foot, Respiratory relief, Fever-Reducing, Pain Relieving, Soothing and Skin Softening, to name a few. You must get this book to review all of the Bath Bombs, Scrubs and Salts it offers.  I am currently making a few gifts layering Himalayan salts (pink) and Sea salt (white) using small mason jars exactly like the sample shown on the cover of the book.  Tonight I am going to use one of the salt scrubs I made with Almond and sandalwood essential oil. I will let you know how it comes out!
