It’s been a long week, girl, and you’re ready to chill out with some good old-fashioned self care. This adorable bath bomb ought to do just the trick (especially if combined with a nice big glass of vino). Oh, and it makes a great gift, too.

Bath Bomb Ingredients:

 - 3 tablespoons castor oil
 - 1 tablespoon essential oil

In a large mixing bowl combine the baking soda, citric acid and cornstarch.

Step 2: In a separate bowl combine the castor oil, essential oil, water and food coloring.

Step 3: Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients a small bit at a time, whisking until totally combined. 

Step 4: Tightly pack the mix into each side of the ornament before closing the ornament and freezing for 30 minutes.

When you’re ready to use, simply pop that baby into a tub of warm water, sit back and enjoy all the fizzy goodness.
