How to Make Shea Butter Bath Bombs

The holidays are coming and everyone loves to get handcrafted & homemade beauty gifts. I know for myself, I love using bath bombs because they are a great way to relax (aromatherapy) after a long hard day at work. These DIY Bath Bombs would be great to make up now and present as gifts during the holiday season to all of your very best girlfriends!

Today's project is courtesy of: Carpe Diem with Jasmine.

DIY Beauty Recipe: Shea Butter Flower Bath Bombs 

1 cup baking soda
½ cup citric acid
¼ cup cornstarch
¼ cup powdered milk
4 teaspoons Out of Africa Pure Unrefined Shea Butter
2 tablespoons warm honey
2 tablespoons jojoba oil or olive oil
1 teaspoon essential oil
Plastic candy sheet mold

Step 1: Measure out your ingredients and get them ready for mixing.

Step 2: Combine and stir the baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch and powdered milk in a bowl.

Step 3: Melt the Out of Africa Pure Unrefined Shea Butter along with the honey and oil over a low heat in a small pot on the stove. The Out of Africa Shea Butter is loaded with antioxidants and vitamins A, E, & F along with healthy fatty acids and valuable phytonutrients.

Step 4: Add the melted ingredients to the dry mixture, using a whisk to thoroughly combine everything. For an enhanced spa feel and fragrance, place a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Mix well.

Step 5: The ingredients should begin to hold together. Working quickly, use your hands to press the mix firmly into the trays. Leave the mixture in the mold for a couple of minutes and then pop out. While one tray is drying, work on the next.

Tip: “I put a cookie sheet over the trays, flipped them over and then lifted the mold off. If you have anything leftover, just dry the product out, leave it loose and turn it into a bath powder. Simply leave the mixture in the bowl for 24 hours, periodically mixing the ingredients to break up the clumps. Once all of the moisture is gone, place in a mason jar with a colorful ribbon.”

Step 6: Let the bath bombs dry overnight. The next day, place them in a decorative bag or drop 1 to 2 bombs into your tub and relax.
