Peppermint Bath Bombs

Christmas season is here and it is time to start thinking about gifts. These DIY peppermint bath bombs make a great gift for someone you love and they are so easy to make. This made a great bonding activity. Monkey helped me make these and we had so much fun. Though we probably cleaned up more off the floor than someone without a child helping would have too.

Peppermint bath bombs make a great homemade gift

DIY Peppermint bath bombs.

Normally I would link to the mold we used but, in this case, I will just say… Don’t do it! Dozens of tries and only two came out whole. The upside I did learn you can crush these up add a few drops of water and start all over with the molding process.  Stick with a mold that does not have odd bits sticking out. You will think me later.

What you need:

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salt
  • 3 teaspoons melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • Choice food coloring (optional)
  • Cosmetic glitter (optional)


Making peppermint bath Bombs is a great way to spend the day with your child.

Mix ingredients together except for water. Slowly add in water to create a paste.

Press into molds and let dry overnight before removing.

Store in an airtight container or individually wrap to keep the fragrance.
