Bath bombs can also help with your mental wellness. Soaking in a hot tub with essential oils has been demonstrated to help lower anxiety and stress levels. Certain essential oils' aromatherapy advantages can also aid to boost your mood and encourage relaxation.


Essential oils are important when it comes to making bath bombs. If your goal is to have therapeutic baths through aroma, then essential oil is not an ingredient that we should skip. You may want to take note of these scents that will always remind us of Christmas:

  • Cinnamon

  • Peppermint

  • Nutmeg

  • Hot Chocolate

  • Sweet Ginger

  • Rosemary

  • Sage

  • Christmas Tree

  • Vanilla

  • Eggnog

  • Chestnuts

  • Cranberries

  • Eucalyptus

  • Cedar

These are some of the smells that we encounter during the Christmas season that we might want to incorporate in our next bath bomb recipes.


Candy Cane Bath Bombs



  • 1/2 cup of baking soda

  • 1/4 cup of Epsom salt

  • 1/4 cup of citric acid

  • 1/4 cup of cornstarch

  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil

  • 1 tablespoon of witch hazel or water

  • 20 drops of peppermint essential oil

  • 4-5 drops of pink soap colorant

  • 2-3 crushed candy canes or peppermint candies

  • bath bomb molds


  1. Combine baking soda, Epsom salt, citric acid, and cornstarch in a large glass or metal basin. To blend, whisk or stir with a fork.

  2. Combine the coconut oil (liquid), peppermint oil, colorant, and water in a separate bowl. Stir well.

  3. Slowly combine the wet and dry materials, working in 3-5 batches to prevent activating the mixture.

  4. Squeeze the mixture together in your palm. Move on if it clumps (like moist sand). If not, add 1 teaspoon of water and thoroughly mix it up. Check for consistency once again.

  5. When the mixture is finished, put about 2 tablespoons of crushed candy into each side of the mold.

  6. Pack your mix lightly on top of the candy on each side of the mold. Fill each side a little more than halfway, bring both sides together, and push down hard to shut.

  7. Keep the bath bombs in their molds for at least 8 hours, preferably overnight. Remove them by carefully pressing a spoon against the mold and lifting one side gently.

  8. This Christmas bath bomb recipe is designed to harden and dry entirely on the counter for 24 hours (or longer).
