Feeling like you need a little attention for your noggin? These Migraine Bath Bombs can be made from the comfort of your own home!
Pain in the head is the worst. It ranks right up there with tooth pain if you ask me.
And I don’t know if it’s the change in the seasons or the weather or if I just haven’t had enough caffeine lately, but I feel like my headaches and migraines are trying to kick it into high gear. (if only my energy could work overtime like my headaches, right?!)
It’s literally SO annoying.
I don’t like that feeling of pressure, and I know it has an effect on my overall being and patience as well. While I don’t have any type of cure, I do find that I love the way that these homemade migraine bath bombs make me feel.
Y’all know I’m a huge lover of essential oils, right? This bath bomb recipe is chocked full of ’em and I’m so stoked to share this with all of you.
Please know that while this is called “migraine” bath bomb, I just want you to know it’s something that I personally like to use when I’m feeling like my head is a little cloudy. Migraines should never be taken lightly and if sever, you should always seek medical attention and advice right away!
Simple and Easy Homemade Migraine Bath Bombs

I will admit, however, that these homemade bath bombs smell amazing and I just find the combination of all the ingredients so soothing and calming!

How to make homemade bath bombs
Find a large mixing bowl. First, add the baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, Epsom salts and SLSA. (Keep track here, you’re going to be going through quite a few ingredients)
After you’ve finished that, it’s time to add in the coconut oil. (The addition of this ingredient is what binds everything together and gives your bath bombs the ability to stay together.)
Next step? Time to add in the polysorbate 80. (The point of adding this is to help the coconut oil disperse more evenly in your bath water, gives the bath bombs some bubbles and stops the mica coloring from sticking and staining the sides of your bathtub.)
Once done with that, it’s time to add the essential oils.
Now, it’s time to mix the ingredients together. I like to get in there and use my hands to mix so there aren’t any surprise lumps. You’ll know you’ve nailed it when it feels like wet sand in your hands.
Next, add in the mica color powder. Using a whisk, mix all the dry ingredients together. I separated in bowls so that each color had its own container.
Grab your mold, fill one side with your mixture until its over-flowing a bit, then press both sides of the mold together turning and twisting as you close.
Let them dry for a minimum of 24 hours before trying to remove from mold. (To remove, gently tap each side and see if they come out easily)
If you feel them and they are hard to the touch, they are ready to be glazed! Spray them with a few squirts of rubbing alcohol, let them dry, then spray the other side. You may need to do this a few times, to be able to get the whole surface covered. (Keep in mind as you make the bath bombs, the mixture may start to dry out a bit so you may need to spray it here and there with the rubbing alcohol to keep it moist)
You have many more ingredients listed that I never saw in the directions when making them, for example, you list Epsom salt, numerous essential oils, cocoa powder, soap base, brown mica powder, dried lavender & SLSA, but nowhere in the directions does it say to add them. However, what ingredients are in the directions/instructions are things NOT listed as things needed, such as…cream of tartar, bentonite clay & bergamot essential oil. Than you say once they feel hard to the touch they are ready to be “glazed”. How & with what are they glazed with. I was diagnosed with cluster migraines years ago & when I saw this I was super excited, but it’s so confusing.
Hi Wendy. Wow are you ever right, this was completely wrong!!
I went in and fixed the directions to be from the correct “recipe”.
Might I suggest rocky mountain oils. They have a migraine relief blend that works amazing in soaps and bath bombs.
