Want to learn how to make bath bombs at home? They are so fun to make as gifts for your friends and family...and YOURSELF! And they don't have all the yucky chemicals and fragrances in most store bought bath bombs so they are much healthier.
Taking a bath with relaxing essential oils is such a beautiful and restorative way to support your body and mind. And these bath bombs make the bath even that more wonderful. ENJOY!
- 2 cups baking soda
- 1 cup citric acid*
- 10–20 drops essential oil of choice

*Citric acid can be found in some grocery stores, but I often purchase on Amazon: https://goo.gl/pg7D2S
** I use these circle molds: https://goo.gl/1yMFV1
But you can also use cookie, chocolate or ice molds you already have. Personalize it and have fun!
- In a large bowl, combine baking soda and citric acid. If using color, add ½ teaspoon natural coloring and mix well.
- Stir in essential oils.
- Spray the entire surface of the mix with witch hazel and mix with hands. Continue to spray and mix rapidly until the mixture holds together.
- Quickly press the mixture into desired mold, making sure it is firmly packed. Let mixture set in mold for 20–30 seconds. Gently tap the mold to release bath bombs.
- Let dry for 30 minutes or until they are firm and do not fall apart.
