I have had a serious love affair with bath bombs since the first time I was gifted one. I quickly realized that my need for bath bombs could bankrupt me if I allowed myself to soak as much as I would have liked. Instead, I learned how to make my own and have been whipping them up regularly ever since, in the name of self-care.

Step 3: Add the coconut oil. This binds all the ingredients together, so your bath bombs don’t crumble when you touch them! Next, add the polysorbate 80. This helps the coconut oil disperse more evenly in your bath water, and prevents the mica from sticking to the side of the tub.

Mix wet ingredients in well. You may need to use your hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is mixed in. The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand. If mixture gets dry, spritz with rubbing alcohol
