Heart Shaped Lavender Bath Bombs

Kids Activities: Make your own Heart Lavender Bath Bombs

Making these Heart Lavender Bath Bombs was a fun activity with my toddler and the result was a lovely product we could use afterwards!

2 cups Bicarbonate of Soda
1 cup Cream of Tartar
1 – 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
Food Colouring
Essential Oils (lavender etc)
Water in a Spray Bottle
Silicone Ice Cube Trays

How to:
1) Mix bicarbonate of soda, tartar, essential oils, food colouring
2) give 2-3 sprays of water, mix well. Push spoon into mixture and see if holds shape. If it doesn’t give another few sprays of water. It must be the consistency of wet sand
3) Fill ice trays and press hard to compact it
4) Leave for 1-2 days to dry. the longer the better
5) Remove gently from trays and they are ready to use! If they break it is because you didn’t use enough water. Break them up and spray a bit more water in and remould them.

I couldn’t find a silicone ice tray so I bought a silicone cupcake tray (from Clicks) which make lovely huge bath bombs! I used Lavender Oil and it was wonderful.




Lavendar oil is well known for relaxation and aiding sleep, both of which I struggle with. I have heard if you put lavendar oil on your pillow it can help you sleep better…. I had a long bath with a bath bomb in and climbed into bed. My 11 month oil son woke up and I put him in the bed with me to feed him and we both sleep through after that which is unusual, I wonder if him being snuggled next to me and me being lathered in lavendar oil helped him sleep better? Definitely going to be making a whole lot of stock of these just in case!

My 3 year old daughter loved making this with me, especially as EVERYTHING must be pink right now and hearts are very much the in thing too! We also bought butterfly moulds, so we’ll be adding those pics soon.
