Bubbly Bath Dough

I had a heck of a time trying to name this fun DIY! Generally speaking, it’s a sort of play-dough for the bath or shower that can be sculpted into whatever your heart desires, used as a body wash, and/or crumbled under a running tap to create all kinds of bubbles. Bath Squishes? Bubbly Bath Squishies? Tub Flubber? Sudsy Tub Flubber? Sud Putty? Tub Putty? Bubbly Bath Putty? Tubber Bubble Flubber? Bubble Tub Flubber? Hmm. In the end, I settled on Bubbly Bath Dough simply because it clearly communicates what we’re making, but dangit… I really liked Tubber Bubble Flubber 😂 (Try saying that ten times fast!)

Lavender Oat Foaming Bath Salts

It’s finally getting warm again here in Calgary, and that means I recently went on my first run of the season. That also means I am very, very sore. And that means it’s time for (more) baths! These lovely Lavender Oat Foaming Bath Salts contain tons of sore-muscle-soothing Epsom salts, while also filling your tub with a rich lather. Lavender essential oil brings a relaxing aromatherapy note, and a touch of dye turns your bath water a very pretty purple. It’s just the thing for a post-run soak!

Chocolate Ganache Fizzing Bath Biscuits

We’re doing a bit of calorie-free “baking” today with some downright delicious Chocolate Ganache Fizzing Bath Biscuits! These fun, fizzy bath treats were inspired by a request from Bethany + some LUSH products I’ve been ogling for a while. When I first started work on these I didn’t think I’d end up with some delicious bath cookies, but I love how they’ve turned out! They’re like the lovechild of a bubbly bath bomb and bath oil, filling your tub with bubbles and suds and transforming the bathwater into a rich, velvety treat. Oooer. Prepare to fall in love!

Foaming Aromatherapy Bath Concentrate

Today’s DIY is ultra-simple; I designed it to be a safe and easy way to add essential oils to baths with some added bubbles. Putting essential oils in baths is really common, but can be problematic if not done properly. Essential oils are oil-soluble, so without some sort of emulsifier or solubilizer they won’t properly mix into bathwater—they’ll float on top, where they can contact the skin in high concentrations. Combine high concentrations with the magnifying heat of a hot bath and that can be bad news for your naked body 😬

Argan Rose In-Shower Body Conditioner

Today we’re revisiting a project I first shared in May 2014—a rich body lotion inspired by a popular LUSH product—as part of my Bee Better work. This six-years-later update features a new emulsifier, fully percentage-ified amounts, clearer instructions, and a hefty dose of moisturizing vegetable glycerin for super-soft skin. It smells wonderfully of roses and lemon and leaves your post-shower skin feeling fantabulous!

Argan Rose Valentine Bath Bombs

Happy almost-Valentine’s-Day! We’re celebrating this year with some seasonal bath bombs, featuring some shimmery mica painting and lovely pink fizzing. They smell beautifully of rose and lemon, in keeping with the shampoo bars I shared last week, but you could definitely choose a different valentine-y scent if you wanted to! Florals, vanilla, and/or chocolate all come to mind as deliciously seasonal scents 😄 I pressed these bath bombs into cubes using The Bath Bomb Press, though you can also hand-mould them if you don’t have a press.
