DIY Christmas Bath Bombs Recipe

Ingredients:

  • Citric Acid - ½ Cup
  • Epsom Salt - ½ Cup
  • Corn Starch - ½ Cup
  • Baking Soda - 1 Cup
  • Water - 1 Tablespoon
  • Red Food Color - 2 Teaspoon
  • Chamomile Essential Oil - 5 Drops
  • Virgin Coconut Oil - 1 Tablespoon
  • Peppermint Essential Oil - 5 Drops

Supplies:

  • Bowls
  • Whisk
  • Spoons
  • Bath Bomb Mold

Directions:

Step 1: In a bowl, add 1 cup of baking soda, ½ cup of Epsom salt, ½ cup of cornstarch, and ½ cup of citric acid. Mix.

Step 2: Take another bowl for wet ingredients and add one tablespoon of coconut oil, five drops of peppermint essential oil, five drops of chamomile essential oil, and one tablespoon of water.

Step 3: Combine ingredients until everything is evenly distributed. Slowly add the wet bowl’s ingredients to the dry bowl while stirring the mix with the whisk.

Step 4: Do not stop mixing to prevent the formation of lumps. In the third bowl, add all the ingredients except red food coloring to make the mixture white.

Step 5: Once you are done mixing the ingredients, take a scoop of bath bomb mixture in your hand and clump together to see the consistency of the mix, whether it is holding together or not.

Step 6: If the blend is crumbling away, add a few drops of virgin coconut oil in order to make it damp and hold together. Now, start layering the bath bomb molds with the mixture.

Step 7: One line is red, and the other is white. Fill all the way up. Clump the molds together. Set the mold aside for 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 8: After the setting time, take a spoon and gently tap the mold to release the bath bomb. Once the bath bomb is removed from the mold, let it set for 24 hours to harden.

The shelf life of these bath bombs is six months if stored properly in a clean, dry environment.
