Love these quick to use toilet bubbles! I won’t call them what the world is calling them…just don’t like the term, so bubbles are my word! I love these because it only takes a minute to drop them into your toilet and scrub and clean quickly! For this time of year with bugs flying around getting sick easily, well I need quick and easy cleaning. Plus, it is all-natural keeping our home free of unwanted chemicals!

Isn’t it nice to know you can have your children help do the chores around the home because you don’t have to worry about the harsh chemicals in the products they are using? I AM! Breathing in toxins like bleach can be extremely harmful especially over time. So get rid of the junk and make NEW, CLEAN, AND FREE of harmful ingredients!

Here ya go…easy to make, easy to use!

1/2 Cup citrus acid
1 1/2 cup baking soda
30 drops of Immune Strength essential oil
30 drops of Organic Lemon essential oil
You can add another favorite oil if you like, I love the citrus ones like Orange, Lime, or Tangerine.
1/4 cup Water, may need more
Silicone candy trays

1) Mix the first 2 ingredients. I use a whisk for this.
2) Next, add you’re essential oils. Mix well.
3) For the water, you will want to add slowly just a little at a time, and mix with your hands. You will add as much water as needed to make the mixture stick together.

You will feel like your childhood days of playing with wet sand. Once it holds together, you can put it into your molds.


Once filled, let dry for about an hour then take a knife and scrape the top to get them smooth.
Any leftover from your bowl or this process put in your toilet and have a good clean!

Allow drying for 24 hours before placing them in an airtight container. I use a mason jar of course!

I assure you by switching to using all-natural home cleaning supplies will make you and your family healthier and free from harsh chemicals. Congrats on making that choice today!

Plop in your bubbles and see how wonderful your bowl will be!
God’s blessings,

Love deeper, talk sweeter,

These organic herbal bath bubbles(aka bombs) you will make are not only your own creation but will offer you healing as well. These bubbles are filled with fresh organic herbs to heal your body while you soak, and the aroma of the essential oils will just enhance this time for you to relax and unwind. There is nothing more relaxing than knowing your soaking in all natural ingredients! More rewarding, is making them and giving them as a gift! This makes it extra special! (If you want a visual click link on the bottom of page) Each bubble is unique to your own ideas. Add herbs to give color but also think about what the herb is offering in terms of healing. There are recipes out there for these, but they put food coloring in the recipe. I just couldn’t! It would be taking away what I want to implement in my lifestyle. The same goes for any recipe I come upon. I will change it if it has ingredients that will not benefit. YES, at times I will add the ingredient, but for the most part, I really try and find a natural way to make what I create better. I hope you will find the bubbles fun. Here are the basic ingredients and below are other herbs and oils that will be wonderful for your spa bath. First…you need to make yourself a cup of tea. I made my Christmas Delight tea so you can use the tea for the color to your bubble later. As the herbs were steeping I took a bit of the strained herbs into a small cup so I could add to my bubbles. Dry Ingredients: 1 Cup Baking Soda 1 Cup Arrow Root Powder 1 Cup Citric Acid ( I used a pestle and mortar) 1 Cup Dead Sea Salt (optional I used in one batch and omitted in another this is the part that causes the fun bubbles but can get messy…careful) **Omit salt if you are using these in a hot tub. Mica for sparkle Plastic clear Christmas balls ( I had one large one and one small for left over at the end to make one colorful bubble) Time To Make: Mix together in a steel or glass bowl. It can be fussy when not mixed well. Use a whip as well to make sure to get all the clumps out. You want a nice smooth mixture. Feels like sand! Now pour into your dry ingredient bowl
  • 1 Cup of Organic Coconut Oil Melted
Mix with your hands. Now add your color using the herb of your choice. The Beet Root makes wonderful pinks and reds. Next, add the Mica color for the sparkle if you want that. You will want to add just enough of the above about ½ cup of your base into a separate bowl if you want different colors and oils for each bubble. So the next 2 steps you continue using only a little of your base.
  • 4-6 drops of Essential Oil of your choice (I use only Blends as it adds so much aroma to the spa)
  • Herbs (suggestions below) for color 1/2 tsp or more for darker (start small and add to your liking)
Now…use your hands to mix. If it doesn’t bind in your hand than add just an eyedropper of water until it will clump. Put your colored nice smelling mixture into one half of your ball bubble. Press firm filling it well. If you want a different color for the other half, then get some of your bases, about ½ cup and mix in your herb for color. You won’t need any more essential oil so you may need your dropper of water for this part especially since you added drier ingredient with your herb. Continue to mix and clump and fill your other half. Both half balls should be chuck full of mixture and now put them together forming your bubble. Carefully pull one half off, flip into your palm, and take off the other half. Lay on a tray and let dry for 10-20 minutes. Now you got beautiful bubbles to add to your bath or give as gifts! Let dry on a tray for 24 hours. Wrap in saran wrap and keep in cool place. If they fall apart just squish a little together back into a ball. Mine did a little bit and cracked but went back in to patch up. A perfect bubble ball filled with goodness and gives you a wonderful spa experience. Herbs for Color Choices: Turmeric (yellows) Saffron (yellows) Expensive Christmas Delight Tea (reds, pink) Rose Petals, (grind for color keep whole for a pretty top) Lavender whole (add for the smell, not color) Beet Root Powder (reds, pinks) Carrot Powder or juice (orange) Matcha Powder  or Nettles Powder (green) Blueberry Juice (purple) Put the whole herbs in the bottom of your bubble when forming to give a pretty look. Essential Oil Blends: I used Fitness Blend full of wonderful oils. Grapefruit, Lemon, Mint, Cinnamon Bark, Celery Seed, Ginger Root AMAZING! Aligning…GO TO oil ( like a chiropractor in a bottle)… Rosewood, Spruce, Frankincense, German/Roman Chamomile Mix WOW! My husband’s favorite! Citrus Blend…Orange, Grapefruit, lemon, Lime AWESOME in my daily water intake! LOVE this oil! Single Essential oils that you would enjoy in your bubbles: Peppermint Lavender Chamomile Myrrh Tea Tree Grapefruit HAVE fun making your bubbles for you or for gifts! I hope you will make them with a child…so fun to teach them about healthy living and how each herb does something amazing for your body! God bless you!
