Bring the Resort Spa To Your Home: DIY Bath Bombs

One of my favorite things about going to an All Inclusive  is the spa. I mean, just look at the one at Secrets The Vine Cancun:

Everything about it — from the smell, to the sound, to the ambiance — takes me to a place of total relaxation that I can’t seem to reach in my everyday life.

So, for the remaining 360 days of the year that I’m not at a resort, I crave that soothing, sweet-smelling atmosphere from the resort spa.

I think that Matt and I may have somehow entered Heaven. This resort is unreal. #brelsfordays

After trying many different techniques to create this vibe and head space at home (i.e. sound machines, oil diffusers, etc.), I’ve discovered that bath bombs are the most effective way to go.

Somehow, packed into that little ball, is the scent, feeling, sound and ambiance that takes me back to my beach trip.

It’s magic.

 

But, as you may know, bath bombs are expensive — somewhere around $6 a pop.

Thankfully, they’re super easy and cheap to make yourself! You can actually buy all the ingredients one time and have a year’s supply of bath bombs.

Happy bathing, folks.

Mmm…
