My daughter can’t get enough of the expensive bath bombs from LUSH, so we finally decided to make our own. I thought it would be a fun project to do together and in the long run it will save her tons of money. Making bath bomb is a great thing to give as gifts too. The process was surprisingly easy and lots of fun too!
Bath Bomb Ingredients
Recipe found at ouroilyhouse.com
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cornstarch
- 1/4 cup epsom salt
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 15-20 drops of essential oils (I used orange)
- 1 tsp vanilla or 1 tsp of water
- spray bottle with water
- bath bomb mold
- bath bomb colorant (this Bath bomb mold & color kit is a good option)
Mix all dry ingredients in medium bowl. Stir until all mixed together. Add in melted coconut oil, essential oils and vanilla. Whisk together.
With spray bottle, Mist mixture with water until it holds together when you squeezed in you hand. Prepare molds by greasing them with coconut oil.
You can make bath bombs natural without coloring, but I personally like a bit of color so I divided the mixture into four bowls and add four drop of colorant and massage the mixture with my hands until it was an even color. Then I simply add layers of color to the bath molds and press the mixture into both sides of mold and finally press the two side together.
Allow the molds to sit for 24- 48 hours in order to completely dry. Once dry they should pop out of the molds and are ready to enjoy!
