DIY Bath Bombs

Have some fun and try making some bath bombs at home the little ones will love!

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup of Baking Soda
  • 1/3 Cup of Citric Acid 
  • 3 Tbsp of Cornstarch 
  • 1 Tbsp melted coconut oil 
  • 3-4 drops of Natural Food Colouring 
  • Few drops of Essential oils (we recommend classic Lavender or Chamomile)

Tools needed:

  • Bath bomb mold or a cupcake baking tray 
  • Mixing bowl 

Steps:

  1. First, we need to dilute the essential oils this can be done by mixing a few drops with a carrier oil such as coconut oil or grapeseed oil.
  2. Combine baking soda and cornstarch in a large bowl and mix
  3. Add a couple drops of water-soluble soap dye such as food colouring, spray some warm water on top and mix very well. Warm water will help the colour mix better. Keep mixing until the colours are even. Keep adding more drops of colour until you reach the desired shade.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix melted coconut oil and essential oils. This is the part were we dilute the essential oils in the carrier oil.
  5. Pour the oil mixture into the large bowl and mix. You can use a whisk or your own hands to mix (use gloves). Your mix needs to be slightly moist but not wet. If it’s wet and heavy, leave it to dry for a bit.
  6. Add citric acid and mix well. Your final mixture should resemble damp sand. Squeeze the mixture in your palm. If the mixture stays together then it’s ready. If not, we recommend to spray a little bit of water and mix again.
  7. Pack your bath bomb molds or use a cupcake baking tray. Add a little bit at a time and press with your fingers firmly. Molds need to be tightly packed.
  8. Let the mixture sit in the bath bomb mold for a couple of minutes and then remove. Leave it to dry for 24 hours. Store in an airtight dry container. 

Tip: Silicone molds are much easier to work with than Stainless Steel.
