    Nothing is more soothing at the end of a long day than relaxing in a hot bath. Throwing a bath bomb into the mix can help ease aches and pains while a nice aroma can help you relax both mentally and physically. Rather than paying a hefty price for boutique bath bombs, keep reading to learn how to make your own at home using dried herbs. Make Your Own Bath Bombs with Dried Herbs
    Bath bombs are so dang expensive that I usually end up using just plain Epsom salt.

    I made bath salts once. They were expensive, too. I think by the time I had bought all the basic materials I was in for $30, and that didn't include a bomb mold or packaging, and it was only one bottle of essential oil. I wanted to make sugar scrub, but found the cost of jars prohibitive. If you were making it for yourself you could reuse containers, but for gifts you don't want to put it in recycled mayo jars.

    I think if you are going to buy wholesale and make a business out of it you might do better, but you'd have to work to sell it. I see a lot of hand made bath stuff at fairs and farmers markets, and I don't think people use bath bombs as often as, say, hand cream or shampoo.

    If you're going to get into it, carefully cost out ALL supplies and ingredients. There's a reason bath bombs are pricey.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    That is exactly what I was thinking. It seems like all the ingredients might end up even more expensive.
