In today’s post, I am happy to share these gorgeous bath bombs which can make perfect last minute holiday gifts. They are simple and easy to make and are inexpensive unlike the other bath bombs available in stores.
Bath bombs add a bubbly character to your hot bath and the essential oils will just lift your moods. I always add almond oil, that adds a nice moisturizing touch to the bath. You can use other essential oils as per the benefits desired, I love to test different mixes.
So let’s learn to make these super easy bath bombs 😊
What you’ll need
- 1 cup Baking soda
- 1/2 cup Citric acid
- 1/2 cup Epsom salt
- 1/4 cup Cornstarch
- Green/red color
- Peppermint essential oil
- Vanilla fragrance oil
- 2 tablespoon Almond oil
- Water spray
- Moulds to give shape.
Let’s get started!
- In a mixing bowl add all the dry ingredients and mix gently.
2. Separate the mixture into equal parts in two bowls.
3. Next add the almond oil, essential oils, and color and mix everything together.
4. Check the moisture of the mixture, it should be like a wet sand consistency and the mixture should hold together.
5. You can then add a few spritzes of water and fill the mixture into the moulds.
6. Let them dry overnight and then pop them out from the mould.
And there you go, Your peppermint bath bombs are ready. Pack and decorate them and they will make perfect gifts for the holiday season, or just pop them in your bath for a relaxing bath filled with scents of this holiday season! A real treat to the senses, it is surely my fav way to pamper myself ❤️

I think its fine to address the elephant in the room by now😁, I am totally hooked on DIY beauty products with all the amazing natural products, and it amazes me, whatever I need is so easily accessible (in my kitchen) and inexpensive.
So today guys, I’m sharing with you a very easy-to-make mask for fall. Beetroot is full of antioxidants which boosts the collagen in the skin, thereby making the skin more supple and smooth. Beetroot is a powerhouse of vitamin C which helps to brighten skin tone and removes dead skin thereby leaving a clear skin.
The nutrients from beetroot are unparalleled and are a great addition to your clay mask as they are full of antioxidants.
The second ingredient is the Fullers Earth Clay which is also known for its skin clearing properties and removes dirt and impurities from the skin. The combination of these two powerful ingredients gives us this glow mask.
Here’s what you will need
- 1 tablespoon beetroot powder
- 1 tablespoon fullers earth clay (Multani mitti)
- 1-2 tablespoon water
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Apply the mask on you pre-cleansed face. Leave for 15 mins and wash off with warm water. Then apply your favorite moisturizer.
I hope you guys like this DIY and I would love to hear what you think about it.
Let’s embrace fall with flawless skin 😉 💪 while you are using beetroot for your beauty regime, you can also try out this yummy Red Velvet ( Beetroot) Latte!
