So my husband gave me a super luxurious box of bath bombs for Christmas in hopes that I would take more time to myself. ((LOL)) One evening at bath time I thought my daughter might enjoy one. I CREATED A MONSTER! Every time she got in the bath, she was asking for “colors.” I guess because they turn her bath water different colors. I had to cut her off. I didn’t want hubby to get his feelings hurt that I was giving his well thought out and heart felt gift to the toddler.
I set out for a recipe for bath bombs. I tried several but didn’t find any specific one that I loved, so I took a few things from a few recipes, and created my own.
And with the help of my spunky little girl, we have successfully made TONS of bath bombs.
What You’ll Need
- 1/2 cup of Baking Soda
- 1/4 cup of Corn Starch
- 1/4 cup Epsom Salt
- 1/4 cup of Citric Acid
- 3 teaspoons of Coconut Oil
- 2 Teaspoons of Water
- 1 Teaspoon Essential Oil
- 10 to 12 drops Food Coloring
- Something to mold your bombs
What To Do
- Combine all of your dry ingredients into a bowl and whisk together
- Add in your coconut oil.
- Mix in a different small bowl the water and the food coloring (this will help disperse the color more evenly.)
- Add the water and food coloring into your bowl with you dry ingredients and coconut oil. (This is going to cause your dry ingredients to fizz but don’t worry just keep whisking your ingredients until it stops)
- Add in your essential oil. For my daughter I use light scents (pink grapefruit, lemon, and orange)
- Lastly put your bomb mixture in a mold. Pack it in really tight on each side and then quickly put the sides together. Press firmly for a few seconds before putting it down.
- Let it sit in the mold for a few minutes and then carefully pull the bomb out and let it dry for 12 hours before using.
