Equipment

  • Mini Bath Bomb Mould

Materials

  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup citric acid
  • 1/4 cup epsom salt
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tbs jojoba oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons witch hazel
  • 1/2 teaspoon purple mica powder or color of your choice
  • 10 drops lavender essential oil
  • 10 drops lemon essential oil

Instructions

  • In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Make sure there are no clumps
  • .In a small glass bowl, combine the jojoba oil, essential oils and witch hazel.
  • Whisk.
  • Pour the liquid mixture into the large bowl, it will fizz once the liquid touches it.
  • Begin mixing using a fork (or your hands) until everything looks combined and somewhat moist.
  • Prepare your silicone molds and use a spoon to fill the molds halfway.
  • Using a silicone spatula, press the mixture into the molds firmly.
  • Spray each mold with a small bit of water (one spray) and press down again to make sure they're firm.
  • Using too much water will cause the bombs to lose their fizz.
  • If you don't press down firmly, the bombs will not hold together.
  • Divide the rest of the mixture into the moulds and again press down firmly.
  • Spray the top with water and press down again.
  • Let sit on the kitchen counter for twenty-four hours to set before removing from molds.

Notes

Note: The mica powder and the oil in these bombs might leave your bath a bit slippery- so take caution when getting out!
