I have three grandsons who all love Spiderman. They are also extremely active and have sinus issues, so I came up with an idea to make them “Spider-man Bath Bombs” and adding sinus and calming essential oils to help them at night time.
The reason we call them Spider-man bath bombs is simple, because they are red and blue like Spider-Man. I have found adding little mini toys inside them so they find them in the tub is a fun way for them to play while the essential oils do their job!
Most of the time you can find mini figures at Dollar Tree, or their own toy box, they don’t care!! But be careful if too small with your little ones, make sure they are age appropriate!
How To Make Your Own Bath Bombs:
Ingredients and Supplies:
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup Epsom salts
- 1/2 tsp. Corn Starch
- 1 tsp. water
- 2 tsp. essential oil
- 3 tsp. oil (olive oil)
- food coloring (any color you want)
- bath bomb mold
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl, then divide it in two if you want two different colors.
Mix all the wet ingredients together in a cup, if more than one color, I separate into more than one cup.
Pour the wet into the dry mix and stir until smooth.
Put into the mold and wait.
Usually about 5 minutes later, I remove the top.
After sitting out over night I bag or box them individually.
If they begin to swell then you have too much moisture in them, add a little more cornstarch.
If they begin to crack then add a few drops of water to the mixture.
