Heal up after birth with these homemade herbal bath bombs! These postpartum bath bombs mimic a sitz bath and contain herbs to help with postpartum care.
Measure the herbs and grind them into a chunky powder.
In a large bowl, combine the baking soda, arrowroot powder, Epsom salt, herbs, and half of the citric acid. Mix well.
In a small cup, combine the witch hazel and almond oil.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix longer than you think. Then, add in the remaining citric acid and mix again. The mixture will look slightly dry but that's fine so long as you mixed well!
If you have enough herbs, place some of the flowers into the bottom of the mold
Fill 1/8-1/4 of your mold with the mixture and press down firmly. Do this for all the molds. Lightly mist each mold. The mixture will begin to fizz (that's okay!). Add another scoop of the bath bomb mixture and press down firmly again. Mist slightly.
Repeat this process until the molds are full. Once filled, mist once more and press down. The more you press, the better they hold!
Let sit on the counter for twenty four hours before popping the bombs out.
Tip: given there is ground herbs in the bath bomb recipe, they will fizz out in the bath! To prevent the herbs/flowers from sticking to you (and your tub), you can wrap the bath bombs in cheesecloth prior to placing them in the water.
