Hello, old friends. I’m back. I took the past few weeks off from blogging for a number of a reasons, the most important of which was the I freaking felt like it. But today I feel like talking to you all about something near and dear to my heart — bath bombs.
You might remember back to about a month ago when I mentioned that Troy and I were trying to sell our house and buy a new one here in Hattiesburg. That plan lasted only a few weeks before we decided that what we really wanted to do was keep our current house and make it pretty and practical and ours. Let the renovations begin!
We have a whole lot of work to do, and we’re starting with a couple of small projects, like refinishing our fireplace and some old furniture and light fixtures. But once all that’s done, we’ll be giving both of our bathrooms major facelifts. Which means that it’s time for me to make another batch of these Lush-inspired lavender bath bombs. Because I’m about to have a master bath that I’m going to want to spend some time in.
If you’ve never used a bath bomb before, you really ought to give one a try sometime. They are fizzy and fun — and filled with moisturizers and essential oils to leave you soft-skinned and relaxed. I love Lush hugely, but their products are very expensive and, since they’re all made with natural ingredients, I’ve been scoping out copycat recipes on this here old Napster Google machine. I based my bath bomb recipe off of a how-to I found on Emma Magazine, making some important substitutions (coconut oil for olive oil) and omissions (food coloring — no thanks!) Lush bath bombs retail at around $7 each, but this recipe makes 12 bath bombs for really just a few dollars.
With a dozen of these and a jar of my sugar scrub and you’ll be on the mend from any of life’s (seemingly) impossible grievances in no time.
