This Christmas Bath Bomb Recipe is a Great Gift Idea
We love making our own DIY bath bombs here on Ruffles and Rain Boots. In fact, we don’t stop there! We make our own shower fizzies, sugar body scrubs, and even foot soaks.
For this Christmas bath bomb recipe, I’ve chosen to include a couple of winter-soothing ingredients:
- peppermint candies add a bit of holiday fun while the oil helps to improve focus and invigorate
- Epsom salt in the bath bomb will soothe tired muscles.
- coconut oil will moisturize your skin and leave it silky smooth.
Let’s get started making these fun holiday bath bombs.

How to Use and Store This Bath Bomb Recipe
I know you’re probably familiar with how to use bath bombs, however, if you’re not… Fbathtubth tub with warm water (or a foot tub for a fun pedicure) and drop in a Christmas bath bomb.
Store these in an airtight container or shrink-wrapped in cello. It’s really easy to do this: get cello bags (I use at least 4×6 inch), a hair dryer or heat gun, and heat the bomb in the plastic. Press down to make sure it’s a tight seal all around.
