1 cup of baking soda
1/2 cup of corn starch
1 cup Citric Acid POWDER (note POWDER!)
1/2 cup of melted good quality coconut oil
essential oil of your choosing (I used peppermint and lavender, separately) I used 10-12 drops per batch but it's really up to you.
1 drop of food coloring per batch. Too much and you'll risk turning yourself colors!
Bath Bomb forms Do NOT use the recipe that comes with it! You could also use ice cube trays of any shape or a measuring cup in whatever size you'd prefer.
It's useful to have a pastry cutter (shown above), you could also use a sturdy whisk.
two large bowls
Combine dry ingredients using a whisk. In a separate bowl combine coconut oil, food coloring and essential oils.
Now, S L O W L Y add dry ingredients to wet, whisking the whole time. Too fast and you'll cause a chemical reaction. Go slow.
Once they are all in the same bowl, use your sturdy whisk or pastry cutter to continue to combine them. You don't want any big lumps, you want a consistent wet sand kind of look to it. You can also use the rubber spatula to smoosh the lumps out and fluff it up again with the cutter.
Once all the ingredients are combined grab your forms! Fill and press together tightly using the rubber spatula. Use those castle building skills you had as a kid! Fill, press, fill, press, fill, press...once it's full you can gently remove it from the form onto wax paper to dry overnight or for a full 24 hours.
These are great for any holiday! I hope you have fun make them!
