Bath bombs have become all the rage throughout social media, from relaxation to giant bath bombs (people seem to like giant and mini things), they have taken the world by storm. But what if you could eat bath bombs? GlitterForever17 is known for making odd-sounding objects edible , and she inspired me to recreate this D.I.Y for myself. Now bathing in an edible bath bomb might not be the best, but here is a way to create bath bombs that flavor any boring drink.
