  • Bath bombs are a hot new item that everyone loves

    “Bath bombs” have become insanely popular, especially with young women and mom alike! My teens go crazy for them!  However, they’re very expensive (the original bath bombs from Lush can cost upwards of eight dollars apiece!)!Most people consider them a luxury.What you may not know is that they can very easily be made at home with baking soda, citric acid, and a few essential oils. Bright Nest has an amazing and easy to follow tutorial that you can view here.You can even customize the recipe to please your specific audience.Does your sister love the smell of flowers? Treat her to a spa in her own home with a basket of lavender-scented bath bombs! And can you imagine how happy a little girl would be with a bath bomb full of glitter? The possibilities are endless!
