One thing I learned early on in motherhood is that a bath can make a world of a difference between a cranky child and a happy one.
Fizzy bath bombs are a way to make bath time fun, and with the addition of essential oils, the child can benefit from aromatherapy as well. And wouldn’t you know it, bath bombs are easy to make at home!
Here is my favorite Lavender Bath Bombs recipe…

“Kid-Calming” Lavender Bath Bombs Recipe
Lavender essential oil is amazing for calming and relaxation. Adding some lavender scented bath bombs to a warm bath before bedtime can soothe and calm to help you or your child get a great night’s sleep.
This bath bombs recipe isn’t hard to make; you will just need to gather your supplies and allow for adequate drying time before use.
Bath Bombs Recipe Materials & Ingredients:
- Mixing Bowl
- Spray Bottle with Water
- Silicone Baking Mold
- ½ cup Baking Soda
- ¼ cup Corn Starch
- ¼ cup Citric Acid
- 1 tsp. Olive Oil
- 20 drops of (more or less depending on your preference) Lavender Essential Oil
Bath Bombs Recipe Steps:
First combine the baking soda, citric acid, and cornstarch in a mixing bowl. Combine thoroughly.
Add to this your olive oil and Lavender essential oil and mix. I use my hands to do all of the mixing.
Next, you will use your spray bottle with water to lightly spritz the mixture until you can mold it in your hands. Spritz only once or twice and mix each time until this happens. If you spray too much at once, your mixture will start to fizz.
When you are able to form the mixture, pack it tightly into your silicone mold.
Allow the mixture to dry completely for several hours or overnight. Once they are completely dry you can remove them from the mold. Store in an airtight container.
To Use: Drop one bath bomb into a bathtub of warm water and let your kiddo enjoy!
