I was horrified when I first learned that some cosmetics, personal-care products, and household-cleaning products are still tested on animals. A great way to avoid purchasing products that are tested on animals is to make your own, like these DIYCruelty-FreeBath Bombs.
These tiny, fizzy, stress-relievers make great gifts, or you can use them to treat yourself! Relax your mind in more ways than one by tossing one of these scented, cruelty-free bombs into your next bath.
DIY Cruelty-Free Bath Bombs
2 cups baking soda
1 cup citric acid
1 cup cornstarch
10 drops essential oil
5 drops food coloring
2 cups water
1 spray bottle
Plastic, stainless steel, or silicone baking molds or wax paper
Combine the baking soda, citric acid, and cornstarch in a large mixing bowl. Stir until well combined.
Add the essential oil to the mixture using a dropper and slowly integrate.
Add the food coloring and water to the spray bottle. Lightly spray the mixture until it becomes damp. It should not fizz but should be dense.
Pack the mixture into the molds or roll into small ball shapes and place on a sheet of wax paper; the mixture will flatten and harden. Let sit overnight and then carefully remove from the molds or the wax paper.
Add 1 to 2 bath bombs (depending on size) to a bathtub filled with warm water and watch it fizz.
Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
