Bath Bombs make the perfect DIY project for both adults and kids, they can be simple or very complex with a variety of ingredients.
Bath bombs are fun to make and even more fun to use, from relaxing and delicious blends of scents and skin loving ingredients.
What you will need
(I use silicone molds as it makes it easy to remove the bath bomb once it is fully dry)
- Citric Acid
(can be found in your local health food store, Amazon or any soap supply company)
- Sodium bicarbonate
(can be found in your local groceries store also known as Baking soda)
- Coconut oil
(can be found in your local grocery store)
- Essential oil, optional
(can be found in your local health food store)
(to count the drops of the essential oil, can be found at any craft store)
- Skin safe colorants, optional
(can be found in your local craft store, Amazon or any soap supply company)
- Witch Hazel
(can be found at a local pharmacy)
- Citric acid 1/2 cup
- Sodium bicarbonate 1 cup
- Coconut oil 3 Tbp
- Essential oil of your choice
- Witch Hazel in a spray bottle
Mix dry ingredients together, using your hands to break up any little lump until the mixture is nice and smooth.
Separate in parts according to the number of colours you will be using, I used three. Add 1 tbsp of coconut oil the drops of colours and the scent to each part.
Mix all of the ingredients together quickly while spraying the witch hazel careful to not set off the fizz. The consistency should be a little wet, enough to hold it together when pressed, and press the mixture into the mold, set it aside overnight so it fully dries and can be removed from the mold the next day.
After fully dried and removed from the mold your bath bombs are ready to be used. Fill a tub with warm water, add your bath bomb, get in and enjoy a nice, relaxing and fun bath.
