Basic DIY Bath Bomb

posted in Beauty > Skin & Body
  • You will need:
    🛀½ cup of powdered citric acid

    🛀1 cup of baking soda

    🛀¾ cup of cornstarch

    🛀¼ cup cane sugar

    🛀Food coloring

    🛀Essential oils.

  • 1⃣Start your mixture. In a large bowl, add your citric acid, baking soda, and cornstarch. Use your hands or a mixer to thoroughly incorporate all these dry ingredients together. After they have been well mixed, stir in your sugar.

  • 2⃣2⃣Add a bit of water. Use a spray bottle to lightly dampen the mixture you’ve just created. Add only enough water so that the dough is compactable, but avoid adding so much that it becomes fizzy and must be started over.

  • 3⃣3⃣Pour in your essential oils and food coloring. When your mixture can be easily molded in your hands, add essential oil and food coloring to your liking. Feel free to mix multiple scents and colors to create a combination unique to you.

  • 4⃣4⃣Press the mixture into molds. Use dome molds or a mold with rounded edges and press the bath bomb dough into it. Use a lot of pressure to compact the mixture firmly into the molds, to prevent cracking.

  • 5⃣Let the bombs dry. Leave the bath bombs in the molds for at least 24 hours. Place the molds in a cool, dry area away from moisture. If after 24 hours the bath bombs still feel slightly damp, remove them from the molds and allow them to air dry independently.

  • 7⃣Store the bath fizzies. When the bath bombs no longer feel damp to the touch, remove them from their drying area and store them in an airtight container. Keep the bombs away from moisture to prevent premature fizzing, and enjoy them in your next bath!
