Homemade Bath Bombs

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoon baking soda
  • 2 Teaspoon citric acid (This can be found at many grocery stores)
  • Essential Oils (20-30 drops): These not only give your bath fizzers their own unique scent, they also add the benefits of the essential oil you use to your bath.
  • Fine Mist Spray Bottle filled with water
  • food coloring (optional)
  • Candy Molds (optional)

Instructions:

  1. In a small bowl mix baking soda and citric acid together.
  2. Drop 20-30 drops of your desired essential oil or blend into the baking soda/citric acid mixture and stir it until combined. If desired, add a drop of food coloring to the mixture and quickly stir until combined.
  3. Spray one or two sprays of water into the mixture and quickly stir until it is combined. Repeat this process until the mixture sticks together when compacted. The number of water sprays you will need will vary depending on the spray bottle and how much other liquid you previously added. I only used about 6 sprays from a 1 oz. spray bottle to reach the right consistency. Note: As you add the water in this step, you will probably hear some light fizzing sounds coming from the mixture. This is normal, and will continue until the mixture starts to dry.
  4. Take some of the mixture and press it into a small candy mold. Repeat this process until you have pressed all or most of the mixture into molds. Note: If you don’t have candy molds, you can shape it with your hands, or press it into cookie cutters, small yogurt containers, or any other container with smooth sides.
  5. Allow the mixture to sit in the molds for one or two minutes, then turn the molds over and gently release the bath fizzers onto a sheet of plastic wrap or wax paper by gently bending the mold away from the bath fizzer.
  6. Allow the bath bombs to dry for a day or two until they have hardened all the way through (thicker bath fizzers will take longer to dry than these smaller ones).
  7. This recipe can easily be made into larger amounts. Just keep the proportions of 1 Tbsp Baking Soda, 1 tsp of Citric Acid and 10-15 drops essential oil.

How To Use:

To use the bath bombs, simply drop them into warm water. The bath bombs will quickly fizz away, causing the water to roll, and releasing the aroma of your desired essential oil or blend into the air.
