    Is Mom in need of some much needed R&R this holiday season? If she loves unwinding in a hot bath, why not make her some Lavender Bath Bombs as a lovely, relaxing gift? They’re super easy to make and contain just a handful of simple ingredients. The fizzy chemistry begins when the baking soda and citric acid in the bath bomb hit the bathwater and react causing carbon dioxide bubbles- pretty cool!
