DIY: Homemade Bath Bombs

Many of you might be hearing the word ‘bath bomb’ for the first time. It is not a type of explosive bomb, but a delightful treat, with which, you can pamper yourself during bath. Bath bombs are little balls that get instantly dissolved in hot water and add a luscious aroma, moisture content and a new feel to your bath experience.

Hot water makes your skin very dry and flaky. So, you need something that could prevent drying and inject moisture into your body.

So, here is simple yet effective recipe to make your own bath bombs at home, without any hassle.


  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • ¼ cup Epsom salt
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • ½ cup citric acid
