For each bath bomb, follow a similar recipe, using different essential oils…
A bath bomb for when you’re feeling stressed
To soothe the senses when you’re feeling stressed, try a bath bomb infused with 10 drops bergamot (use one labeled bergaptene-free) and 10 drops clary sage. The citrusy-flower bergamot mixed with clary sage calms the nervous system and clears the mind. Light a lavender-scented candle for ambiance.
A bath bomb for when you can’t fall asleep
Settle into a more restful state by concocting your bath bomb to include 10 drops chamomile, 10 drops lavender, and 10 drops mandarin.
A bath bomb for when your muscles ache
Soothe sore muscles with a bath bomb infused with 10 drops lavender and 10 drops rosemary, which reduces inflammation. For even more of a treat, add extra Epson salt to your bath before you hop in. The magnesium sulfate works as a natural muscle relaxant, pulling fluid out of the muscles and reducing swelling.
A bath bomb for when you need a pick-me-up
Need a bath bomb to help you overcome that 3 p.m. feeling on days your work from home? Add 10 drops grapefruit oil and 10 drops bergamot oil. If that doesn’t do the trick, soak a cotton swab with peppermint essential oil and take a whiff whenever you need an extra zap of energy.
A bath bomb for setting a romantic mood
Floral scents like rose and ylang-ylang are great for setting the mood. Try a bath bomb made of 10 drops of each. Add a pinch of vanilla for an added kick.
