Even if you’re more of a shower person than a bath person, I think we can all admit that soaking in the tub with a bath bomb is kind of fun. There’s something pretty satisfying in watching the little thing fizz and dissolve. And with all the easy DIY tutorials I’m sharing here, we can all just keep on dissolving those little bombs to our heart’s content.
1. When Life Gives You Lemons…
Make a bomb. Of the bathtub sort, that is.

Among other benefits, lemon oils help to calm upset tummies, soothe soar throats, and improve digestion. No need for being a sour puss after this bath bomb treatment!
