Forget candy and flowers this Valentine’s Day! This busy mom wants to ask you a question– What’s better than the gift of a warm, beautifully scented bath? In my opinion… Not much! I know I’d love an hour of uninterrupted bath time this Valentine’s Day! That’s exactly what I’m going to help you give with today project–  Easy DIY Candy Heart Bath Bombs!

As I sat down to write this post, I started to think about my relationship with Valentine’s Day. I think just about everyone has experienced the highs and lows of the “Holiday of Love”.

Elementary School- I remember making Valentine’s Day mailboxes in class. I remember sitting at home and painstakingly printing the name of each of my classmates names on a card. I remember trying to pick the perfect Valentine’s Day message for each classmate, looking for the cutest ones for my BFF’s and ones that hinted “I like you” but not too much for the boy I had a crush on.  These were the days when I LOVED Valentine’s Day and the thought of it filled me with excitement.

High School and Early 20’s- These were the years that I DREADED Valentine’s Day. I remember in High School we could buy carnations that would be delivered to the classroom for our friends and crushes. My friends would always buy carnations for each other so that none of us would experience that crushing feeling of EVERYONE receiving carnations but us. I remember knowing that there wouldn’t be a carnation from a boy. In my early 20’s I remember that sinking feeling knowing that Valentine’s Day was just around the corner and the sadness of being single yet again. I remember thinking in my head “I wonder if I’ll ever have love on Valentine’s Day?” because secretly it was what I wanted more than anything, but outwardly I’d complain to my friends about what an awful commercial holiday Valentine’s Day was.

Mid 20’s: My husband and my anniversary of when we started dating is 10 days after Valentine’s Day. I remember the excitement and anticipation our first Valentine’s Day we were together and feeling like the luckiest girl in the world that I had him in my life. I remember him coming home with 1 dozen, long stemmed Ecuadorian roses and thinking they were the most beautiful thing I had ever seen in my life. I also remember the sense of excitement for Valentine’s Day the year after we were married and still newlyweds who took any possible excuse to celebrate love. 

30’s: My husband and I will be celebrating our 16th anniversary of our first date this February! I still like Valentine’s Day and feel like it’s a good excuse to celebrate love, but like most adults in long term relationships, the holiday has changed for me. Now Valentine’s Day is about celebrating all different kinds of love to me– Not just my love for my husband but my love for my kids, my love for my parents and sister, my love for my friends and my appreciation for the people who make an impact on my kid’s lives.

Having experienced so many different variations of emotions around Valentine’s Day, I often wonder how other people feel about the holiday. That’s one of the reason’s why I love this new trend of Galentine’s Day and celebrating your love for your girlfriend’s around Valentine’s Day. 

These Easy DIY Candy Heart Bath Bombs make a great “just because” gift and an even better Valentine’s Day gift– A little something that you can give to just about anyone to let them know you care and that you want them to have a happy day!

Ingredients: 

-1 cup of baking soda

-1/2 cup of epsom salt

-1/2 cup of corn starch

-1/2 cup of citric acid

Red, pink or purple food coloring (alternatively you can use soap coloring but I like using something that almost everyone has in their home. There is such a small amount of the coloring in the bath bombs that it doesn’t effect your skin color when you use it in the bath)

Cotton Candy Fragrance Oil (or your favorite fragrance oil or essential oil)

-4 to 6 tablespoons of melted coconut oil

-Your favorite Valentine’s Day themed sprinkles (I used heart quins, pink sanding sugar and Valentine’s colored nonpareils)

Other materials:

-A mixing bowl

-Spoon

-Silicone Heart Mold (I used a 6 Cavity Silicone Treat Heart Mold like this one)

Optional: Rubber Glove

Makes: 6 Bath Bombs

Directions:

Step 1: Pour baking soda, corn starch and epsom salt into a mixing bowl. Stir until combined.

Step 2: Add drops of food coloring and fragrance oil. I started with 6 drops of red and 4 drops of purple and 10 drops of fragrance oil. Get in there with your hands (rubber gloves will keep your hands from getting the food coloring on your skin). Mix, adding more food coloring as needed until you get to your desired color. (Note: when you add the coconut oil the color will darken some. See photos below.)
