One of my favorite ways to treat myself after a long day is with a hot bath and a book. This is especially true during the cold winter months! A hot bath can keep you warm and comfy for hours. To make your bath time extra fun, bath bombs are a must. These Peppermint Candy Bath Bombs are made with argan oil which is full of vitamin E and skin-loving properties. The blend of Peppermint Essential Oil, 1st Distill and Non-Discoloring Vanilla Fragrance Oil creates a sweet and minty blend that smells just like traditional peppermint candies.
After these bath bombs harden and dry in the mold, they are decorated with a blend of mica and alcohol to give them the peppermint candy appearance. The mica does color the bath water and may leave a little color on the tub, but will wash away with a little scrubbing. I added polysorbate 80 to this recipe to help the oils disperse throughout the water instead of pool on the top, but it’s completely optional. To see the difference between bath water with polysorbate and without, read the Herb Infused Bath Oil tutorial. Check out these fizzies in action in the video at the very bottom of this post!
