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.
