1/2 cup baking soda
1/4 cup corn starch
1/2 cup of citric acid
1/2 cup Epsom salts
1 tsp. water
2 tsp. essential oil
food coloring (any color you want)
bath bomb mold (any shape or container)
What you want to do first is place all of the dry ingredients in the bowl first. After placing them in the bowl, grab your whisk and start to mix till you completely see that everything is incorporated altogether. Then set aside for now.
Next grab the other bowl you have and place the water, essential oil, and food coloring (2-4 drops so you don’t stain anything) into the bowl and whisk together. Note that in this you should be creative and have fun with the colors. You can separate the dry mix into how many other colors you want and just add the dye to make it a unicorn creative mess. For the essential oil you can add 1 tsp. of any scent you prefer and another tsp. of the other preferred scent you have in mind into the bath bomb or just simply have one scent.
When you’re done with both dry and the liquid ingredients our next step is to combined BUT not all at once. If we do this all at once the liquid will activate the citric acid. So first pour about two drops of the liquid mixture into the dry and whisk until it’s fully combined together. After doing so, add little by little and whisk until everything is incorporated to make the whole thing and a little thicker. It should sort of look like sand.
After seeing it being a sand like texture, get your container/ bath bomb mold and pack the mixture into it tightly, seal it and wait for it to dry. Usually, if you want your bath bomb right away you can simply place it in the refrigerator for 30 min. to let it set and then it’s ready for use after, or if you prefer a more sturdier bath bomb, you can let it sit in the container over night and use the following day.
I highly recommend trying this DIY homemade bath bomb at home. You can use it to give to your mom, friends, and family for a birthday present, party take home gifts and even Valentine’s day that’s coming up!
