Who isn't obsessed with bath bombs right now? Everyone loves a good soak and bath bombs make your bath more relaxing, moisturizing, and way more pretty! We've all seen the Lush bath bombs turning people's baths into different galaxies. Well, guess what? You can make your own!
I created my own bath bombs with baking soda, citric acid, corn starch, Epsom salt, almond oil, and essential oil. It's as easy as mixing the dry ingredients with the wet and forming into a mold.
I started with 1 cup of citric acid, 2 cups of baking soda, 1 Tablespoon of corn starch, and 1/4 cup of Epsom salt. I have to admit, I altered the recipe (like I do every recipe) by combining two together, but I promise it works just the same!
I combined the wet ingredients separately. 1 teaspoon of water, 1 1/4 teaspoon of almond oil (or olive oil), and 2 drops of red food coloring, to give the mix a hint of pink, were then mixed together. Instead of actual essential oil, I used 2 teaspoons of rose water for a fresh scent.
I poured a splash of the wet ingredient mix into the dry ingredients and mixed with a handheld mixer. I continued pouring small amounts of the wet ingredient mix in until it was totally combined. Mix until it starts holding shape on its own.
What is fun about making your own bath bombs is that you can form them into whatever shape and size you want! I found a soap mold in the shape of hearts. I used my hands to form the mix into the mold (my hands were so soft after!) Once the molds are filled, you are supposed to let them sit for twenty minutes on parchment paper. I let mine sit in the refrigerator for twenty minutes, just to make sure they held their shape.
And it's that easy! Suck it Lush!
