Using a bath bomb in your tub is refreshing and rejuvenating for your skin.  And now, you can make your very own homemade bath bombs using natural fruit powder.  Plus, they are quick and easy to make!

With the exception of baking soda and witch hazel, all the ingredients you need to make these blueberry natural bath bombs can be found at Natures Garden.  To view the complete recipe for these bath bombs, please click on this link.

The two crucial components for this recipe are citric acid and baking soda.  These two ingredients when mixed with water have a chemical reaction that results in the fizzing of the water. This fizzy nature is characteristic of bath bombs.  But, did you know citric acid also acts as a water softener?

Besides the feel good aspect that bath bombs provide, these blueberry bath fizzes are also skin loving.  Using the superfood Blueberry, you can incorporate tons of antioxidants, amino acids, and the beneficial nutrients of vitamins and minerals all with the simple use of blueberry fruit powder.  This herb will help to rejuvenate the skin and keep it young and healthy.  The sweet almond oil is a non-greasy oil that moisturizes and is easily absorbed into the skin.  To really hammer home the scent of blueberry, Blueberry Fragrance Oil is used to scent the fizzes.  To really capture the blue color of the blueberry fruit powder, you can add additional colorant with the FUN Soap Colorant- Ultramarine Blue.

To make your very own blueberry bath bombs, here are the steps: 

Step 1:  Pour some witch hazel into a spray bottle.  Set aside.

Step 2:  Place 2 mixing bowls in your work area.  To each bowl, place 256 grams of citric acid.  Then, add 560 grams of baking soda to each bowl.  If you notice any clumps, break them up in your hands now.  Mix well.  Finally, to one of the bowls, add 5 grams of blueberry fruit powder and stir, leave the second bowl alone.
