DIY Bath Recipes
The Bath area of Happy Mothering consists of DIY bath recipes. Including recipes for bath bombs, bath salts, bath soaks, bath fizzies and bath melts.
Bath bombs are a hard-packed mixture of ingredients you drop into the bathtub. Upon contact with water, the mixture fizzes and releases essential oils and other ingredients that will enhance your bath. Common ingredients are baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salts and essential oils and you can use a variety of different molds.
Bath salts are usually a combination of Epsom salts, other types of salts and essential oils. People use them to either make their bath more relaxing, detoxifying or uplifting.
Bath melts are a combination of coconut oil and essential oils that help to moisturize and soften your skin when you take a bath.
