Fizzing Bath Bombs

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup citric acid
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup Fractionated Coconut Oil
  • 8-10 drops of your favorite essential oil(s)*
  • silicone mold or saran wrap

*  Choose an essential oil to best suit your needs. The options are endless.
For relaxation, try Lavender or Serenity Calming Blend.
For a mood boost, try Wild OrangeCitrus Bliss Invigorating Blend, or Grapefruit.
For a clogged up respiratory system, try Eucalyptus or Breathe Respiratory Blend.

Directions:

  1. In a bowl, place citric acid, baking soda, cornstarch, and oil.  
  2. Add 8-10 drops of the essential oil(s) of your choice. 
  3. Mix well with a spoon or with your hands until a soft dough is formed. It should have the consistency of damp sand.
  4. At this point you could also add food coloring, dried herbs, or flower petals to the mixture.
  5. If the mixture is too wet, try adding a little more baking soda and cornstarch until the consistency is right.  
  6. Put the mixture into a silicone mold. Let it sit for at least 24 hours before removing from mold.  (If you don’t have a silicone mold, you could use cupcake liners or saran wrap to help mold your bath bombs.)
  7. The bath bombs are ready to use once they are completely dry. To use, just drop them in the tub/shower until they dissolve.
