- Home Spa Bath Bombs
These are a great gift that mom can use to relax and pamper herself.
You will need:
- Baking soda
- Citric acid, available at any health food store
- Essential oils, pick the scent you like (again, you can find this at health food stores)
- Dried flowers from your garden (optional)
- Witch hazel
- Spritzer bottle for adding witch hazel
- Plastic molds found at craft stores
- Mix the following dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl:
- 3 cups baking soda,
1 cup citric acid
You might try 1 cup baking soda and 1/3 cup citric acid to make a small trial batch. Increase amounts to suit your needs; keep proportions at 3 to 1.
- Add the essential oils or fragrance -- 40 drops for 4 cups of dry ingredients.
- Add dried flowers.
- Add the witch hazel to the dry ingredients using the spray bottle to spritz a little at a time. It doesn't take much. It will make the dry ingredients stick together. Try to pack the mixture into the mold and flip it over. If it falls apart, add more witch hazel.
- After the bath bombs are molded, let them sit undisturbed for at least 6 hours before removing from molds.

- Microwave Heating Pad
This gift will help mom relieve her aches and pains.
1. Start with a 14 inch square of fabric...
2. Fold in half with "right" sides inside...
3. Stitch a half inch seam across one end and down the long side...
4. Turn the "pillow case" inside out...
5. Fill with 2 pounds of long grain rice (no minute rice)...
6. Fold in the end seam and topstitch...
7. Voila' you are finished!!!
I made the kids a gift tag to include that gave directions for use and the kids wrapped their pads to go home:
For My Mom,
Here's a gift for you made by my hand and filled with love,
Just pop me in the microwave for 2 minutes,
Spritz me with water if you wish,
Or cool me off in the "frig" (or freezer),
Either way, I'll ease your aches and pains!
The size and amount of rice can vary according to your preference, but the weight of the bag is designed to hold it in the desired area. Too light and it won't work as well, too tightly packed and it won't mold to body parts. You can bring in a portable sewing machine to school and have each child use it to sew the seams.
