Bath Heart Burst Valentines

One of my favorite holidays is Valentine’s Day.  I love creating cute and unique Valentines that are not candy related.  Last year we had our Popper Valentines along with our Flutter Valentines for the children in Riley’s preschool class.  I find it fun to make Creative Valentines that children will actually use.  This year was no exception.  We created our Bath Heart Burst Valentines after Riley and Avery kept asking me to make them more bath bombs.  They loved the scent and had a blast watching them fizz and burst in their bath water.  These are so easy to make and I even have the free printable for you so read on!

Heart Burst Valentines Supplies

In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients together {citric acid, baking soda, corn starch and sea salt}.  In a separate bowl combine the wet ingredients {water, jojoba oil, essential oil and red food coloring}.  For the next step it’s extremely important to take your time so that the dry ingredients don’t react to the wet ingredients.  I learned this the hard way and had to whip up another batch.  You want to slowly pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients and continuously whisk so that a reaction does not occur.  Once everything is is mixed, place a large spoonful into your mold.  Be sure to press down into the mold so that it is packed down tightly.  It’s kind of like making a sand castle.  This is especially important if your mold has a design like our’s did.

Heart Burst Valentines with Joy EO

I used Joy essential oil in our bath bursts, but any one of Young Living’s Essential Oils would work.  Joy is the perfect for Valentine’s Day though since it is an uplifting and refreshing smell.  You’ll want to leave the mix in the mold for 2 -3 hours.  It should feel hard to the touch and will easily come out of a silicone mold.

I placed each bath heart burst in a ziploc snack bag and added our You Make my Heart Burst printable to the outside of the bag by punching a hole through it and the ziploc bag.  I then tied the printable onto the bag with baker’s twine.  Easy peasy!  Plus, the printable is free and looks so cute so click HERE to download it for yourself.
