Bath bombs are one of my favorite things to make. They're easy, cheap, fun and are savored add-ins when I make the time to have a bath. This recipe is a lemony bomb that will be a favorite to all of you citrus lovers. While I chose to use molds to make these bad boys, feel free to use cups, empty easter eggs, baking trays or whatever else you can think of. Enjoy!
- 1 cup corn starch
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup epsom salt
- 1/2 cup baking soda
- 2 tbsp sweet almond oil
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 tsp lemon essential oil
1. In a large bowl, add all of your corn starch, citric acid, epsom salt, and baking soda. Mix well with either a wisk or blender.
2. Add in your oil, essential oil and your first tbsp of water. Mix well before you add your 2nd tbsp of water. Be sure not to add too much water as this will ruin the batch. Mix well again. When the mixture is ready, you should be able to clump parts of it together with your fingers.
3. Pack your (well!) mixture into your molds. I would start with one at a time until you get the hang of it. Wait a few minutes and then gently remove them from their molds by flipping them over.
4. Place your bath bombs on a kitchen cloth or paper towel and let them dry over night. Wait at least 24 hours before you use them... or touch them (they'll crumble if you touch them too much before they dry). Enjoy!
