Bath Bomb Ingredients

Baking Soda

The soda can neutralize acids, wash away sweat and oil, renew and soften dry skin, leaving it silky smooth.

Citric Acid

When the citric acid dissolves and mixes with the baking soda, it creates carbon dioxide – a gas – and forms small bubbles in the bath water, creating the fizz.

Cornstarch

Cornstarch slows down the reaction of the bath bomb. It binds to the baking soda and citric acid and slows down the rate at which both of them dissolve, making the fizziness last longer.

Epsom Salt

Epsom salt in the bath can soften rough, dry skin and exfoliate dead skin cells. It can also soothe skin affected by skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

Coconut Oil

This oil has amazing moisturizing properties for dry skin, including eczema.

Vitamin E

This amazing miracle oil can smooth away rough or dry skin.

Essential Oils

Studies have shown there are many health benefits to adding essential oils to your bath. Some of these include:

  • Ease Stress and Quieten the Mind
  • Help You Sleep Better
  • Soothe Sore Muscles and Joints
  • Lower Blood Pressure and Improve Heart Health
  • Combat Colds, Flu and Make Breathing Easier
  • Improve Dry and Irritated Skin

Holiday Bath Bomb DIY Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup epsom salt
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 3-4 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon vitamin E
  • 12-15 drops essential oil (lavender, orange, lemon, rosemary, bergamot, etc.)

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients EXCEPT THE CITRIC ACID. Whisk to remove any clumps. In a small jar or bowl, stir together the wet ingredients.
  2. If you’re using coconut oil, melt it and let cool slightly before mixing with other wet ingredients. SLOWLY pour the liquid mixture in with the dry mixture, whisking gently.
  3. Once all the wet ingredients are combined with the dry, squeeze the mixture together. It should be fairly sticky and wet but not like a snowball. If it’s falling apart, add a bit more melted coconut oil.
  4. NOW add the citric acid and gently mix with your hands.
  5. Next, fill each half of your bath bomb mold with the mixture until it’s just barely heaping. Press together.
  6. Remove from mold and let sit overnight before handling. You may need to keep it in half a mold overnight.
  7. This mixture makes enough for (4) 2.5″ bath bombs.
