As the weather gets warmer and trees and flowers start to blossom, you might find yourself pulled to the outdoors. It’s easy to get lost laying in the sun and turning your face up to the cool breeze, or perhaps you prefer to prance through fields of wildflowers (if you have any handy). If neither of those are your thing however, or if you are looking for something you can do just for you to recover from all that spring cleaning, we have the perfect solution that will bring all the beauty of spring indoors, and let you take a much needed break in between spa trips.
DIY Bath Bombs.
Don’t let the DIY scare you away, these are some of the easiest things you can do – and to make it even easier we have five amazing recipes that will send you into a spring driven bliss.
Heavenly Rose Petals
There has always been something intriguing about taking a bath in water filled with rose petals. This amazing bath bomb by A Pumpkin and a Princess is very close to the real thing.
Lavender is one of the most common scents associated with relaxation. And for good reason! Lavender is insanely calming, as this aromatic bath bomb over at She Knows will prove.
Orange Clove Wonderland
Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it! While the scent of orange and clove is often associated with the holiday season, this amazing combination is great not only for the wonderful scent, but for sore muscles as well. Find it at BeautyMunsta
Bath Salt Bomb
While bath salts and bath bombs are really close cousins to begin with, this bath bomb recipe from The Makeup Dummy takes that relationship one step above and super infuses the joint soothing salt, creating the perfect bath additive that will make your tired feet scream hallelujah after a day on the floor.
