DIY Moisturizing Bath Bombs to Soothe Dry, Itchy Winter Skin

Do you suffer from dry, itchy, scaly skin during the winter months? Frigid temperatures, cold wind, and dry air can wreck havoc on the skin.

I love to dissolve these Easy DIY Moisturizing Bath Bombs in a bathtub full of warm water and then soak in it.  I always leave feeling refreshed and with soft, silky skin.

Taking a bath is a great way to detox the body (see How to Take a Detox Bath). Grab a book, fill the tub, and enjoy some relaxation – try these 16 Ways to Carve Out Me Time in 2016.

DIY Moisturizing Bath Bombs Ingredient Profile

These DIY moisturizing bath bombs might be small, but they pack a powerful punch thanks to each of the ingredients. They only contain 4 ingredients and are incredibly simple to make.

If you’d like to add a scent for a nice aromatherapy experience during your bath – in addition to the soothing powers these DIY Moisturizing Bath Bombs offers your skin – you can add some essential oils to the recipe. I recommend oils like lavender, ylang ylang, eucalyptus, and roman chamomile for their relaxing and rejuvenating properties.

Epsom Salts – Epsom Salts gently exfoliate and softens dry, rough skin.

Baking Soda – Baking soda neutralizes acids and alkalizes. pH levels are regulated. And it can renew and soften dry skin.

Vitamin E Oil – Vitamin E supports new cell generation and locks in moisture, helping to keep skin hydrated and glowing.

Coconut Oil – Coconut oil is a great, all over moisturizer. Unlike commercial moisturizers that are full of water (and other chemicals), coconut oil’s moisturizing powers are deep and long lasting. It helps remove excessive dead cells on the skin’s surface, which transforms dry, scaly skin into smooth moisturized skin.

DIY Moisturizing Bath Bombs

  • 1 cup Coconut Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Vitamin E Oil
  • 1 1/2 cup Epsom Salt
  • 3/4 cup Baking Soda
  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Add the coconut oil and vitamin E oil to the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix on high speed using the wire whisk attachment, scraping the sides periodically, until the oil is whipped and fluffy (about 3 – 5 minutes).
  3. Add the epsom salt and baking soda to the bowl and stir on low speed until combined.
  4. Using a large cookie scoop (about a 2 – 3 tablespoon size), scoop mounds of the mixture into rounds. Release onto the prepared cookie sheet.
  5. Transfer the cookie sheet to the refrigerator for 30 minutes and chill until the rounded mounds become firm. Remove from the refrigerator and transfer the moisturizing bath bombs into a bag or jar with a lid.
  6. Store in a cool, dry place. To use, add 1 moisturizing bath bomb to a tub of warm water. Soak your body in the tub for 20 – 30 minutes.
