Skip The Spa With These Valentine’s Day Bath Bombs

By Carmen Collins
DIY Valentine's Day BATH BOMBS!

This year, Valentine’s Day is on a Tuesday. Talk about inconvenient! After spending all day at work, the last thing we want to do is get all gussied up and go out to dinner with our beaus at an overcrowded restaurant. So this year, we’re staying in. A home cooked meal, a refreshing bottle of champagne, and relaxing bath sound right up our alley. To keep in line with our apothecary inspired Valentine’s Day DIYs, today I’m showing you how to create your own Lush-quality bath bombs. The dried rose petals and eucalyptus essential oil will fill your bathroom with fragrance, while the epsom salt will slowly detoxify you after a long day. Scroll down to find all the instructions and supplies you’ll need to make this Valentine’s Day the best Tuesday ever.

When choosing a fragrance combination, we knew we wanted something festive and relaxing. Nothing says Valentine’s Day like red roses, and eucalyptus was the perfect pairing to create a spa-like product.

We created these cute “You’re the Bomb!” tags to tie onto each bath bomb with a piece of twine. You can download the printable file here. Print the designs on a sheet of card stock and cut to size.
