I have definitely been on a bath bomb kick whether I'm getting them for myself or as gifts. I'm so excited to save some money and just start making them!

Wow. this Fizzy Bath Bomb will make some wonderful gifts for birthdays. moms to be, or even Christmas put in a real pretty basket to put in the bathroom or even to keep in the guest bathrooms for when they visit. I love that it all natural and you can use your choice of oil and smell and shapes. I do not think I will use the food coloring though. Such a great video for how too. Great idea.

I love bath bombs my only trouble is getting in and out of the tub, but problem will soon be solved, I hope and then I can make my own baths bombs and maybe even some with more of a manly smell for my husband! Obviously first I would have to try them for myself #NationalCraftMonth2017

This sounds like a fun project for a rainy day. Thank you for sharing!

This is the perfect homemade gift idea. Thanks! #NationalCraftMonth2017

I love bath bombs! Didn't realize how easy they were to make. I'll be giving these a try soon and if mine turn out as pretty as the ones in the photo, I'll definitely make some as gifts!

sounds fun to make and use! #NationalCraftMonth2017

#NationalCraftMonth2017 I love bath bombs and use them in my shower for a smell while washing. I just place one in the soap dish and when some moisture gets on it, the smell comes out and doesn't make a mess. My favorite scent is daffodil.

#NationalCraftMonth2017 I forgot....sorry.

I wish that I was more into baths after seeing this. It looks like fun.

Leave a comment...I've always wanted to make my own bath bombs, now that I know it's so easy, I will #NationalCraftMonth2017

cool, #NationalCraftMonth

#NationalCraftMonth2017-Love the bath fizzes. What a fun and easy project for Girl Scouts

Looks like fun but need to be very aware of recipients' allergies, plz! -) #NationalCraftMonth2017

Vitamin E oil is really good for you also. #NationalCraftMonth2017

fun and useful!

thanks for the video, these look like great gifts!


I saw someone make these in a youtube video, but this recipe seems so much easier and with no red coloring, no red ring around the tub. #NationalCraftMonth2017

I made small ones and gave them as gifts to use in the shower. I use essential oils for the aromas.


As someone who is a HUGE fan of taking baths, it only makes sense that these easy bath bombs are my favorite DIY kind. I use lavender oil in mine. )

#NationalCraftMonth2017 where do you buy bulk cream of tartar?

# National Craft Month 2017. These would be cute Easter gifts for anyone. Instead of dying eggs, I'll be making these. I love the idea!

the hashtag #NationalCraftMonth2017 This was interesting. I wonder how relaxing it would be in the shower. How nice to have the recipe in writing as well for those of us without perfect recall memory after watching halting video one time (or even 5).Thank you.

#NationalCraftMonth2017 . What a lovely gift idea, especially with Mother's Day coming up...

Neat, looks easy enough. I see bath bomb Christmas gifts in my future. #NationalCraftMonth2017

This is great. Thank you so much for sharing.
