Tulip Flower Bath Bombs – how to make tulip flower-shaped bath bombs with moisturizing coconut oil and lavender essential oil.
Spring always inspires me to start creating new projects and recipes. Between traveling and a lot of behind the scenes work this winter, I haven’t had a lot of time to work on projects. I’m definitely ready to get back into the swing of things. Recently my daughter asked if we could make bath bombs together and it was just what I needed. I’m always up for making bath bombs, especially enjoying them at the end of a long day. I asked what kind of bath bomb she had in mind and she requested flower bath bombs. Luckily, I had this tulip mold from last year that was perfect for making bath bombs. Here’s how you can make your own Tulip Flower Bath Bombs for Easter, Mother’s Day and birthday gifts.
