1 cup Baking soda
1/2 cup Epson salt
1/2 cup Citric acid
1 tsp Water
2 tsp Essential oil (amount changes depending on how strong your essential oil is)
3 tsp Coconut oil or olive oil
Food dye (optional)
-Two containers (whatever you use will always smell like your essential oil)
-Something to mix with like a whisk. I don’t recommend using your hands to mix
-Spray bottle (optional, but helpful)
-Bath bomb molds
Step 1: Combine all your dry ingredients in one bowl. The epson salt, citric acid, and baking soda.
Step 2: Combine all your wet ingredients in another bowl. Coconut oil, water, and essential oil. If you want to add dye this is where you would add it.
Step 3: Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix. If you have a spray bottle pour the wet ingredients into it and slowly spray it onto the dry ingredients and mix. You want to go slow to prevent it from creating a reaction before you put them into water.
Step 4: Fill your molds and press together. Remove from molds and let dry, they should come right out.
I choose to make lemon batch bombs, because lemon is supposed to help you wake up and I also opted not to add coloring for this batch. This recipe makes about 4 medium sized bath bombs. Of course you can use any essential oil you want. When it comes to the food dye just slowly add a few drops until you get a few shades darker than what you want, because when you add it to the dry mixture the color will lighten.
