Homemade Bath Bombs
- Add dry ingredients to a bowl
Mix the dry ingredients first (Epsom salt, baking soda, cornstarch and citric acid), using the whisk. Mix well to ensure there are no clumps.
- Combine the wet ingredients
Pour the wet ingredients (olive oil, water, and essential oil), and the mica into the jar, secure the lid and shake well.
- Very slowly add wet ingredients to dry ingredients
Very slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture, about a few drops at a time, while whisking the entire time. If you’re not pouring slowly enough, or not continuously whisking, the mixture will start to fizz and you don’t want that to happen.
- Mix the mixture very well until the color is consistent
Once all of the liquid has been poured into the dry mixture, mix very well until the color is consistent.
- Put dried lavender into the bottoms of 4 molds.
Add a bit of dried lavender to one side of the molds
- Immediately fill the molds with the mixture
Immediately fill the molds with the mixture, firmly stuffing each side full.
- Secure both parts of the mold together
Secure both parts of the mold together, give it a little twist, and let set. I always give it about a day, just to be on the safe side.
- Carefully release homemade bath bombs from molds
Carefully release bath bombs from molds and put them into an airtight container or individual cello bags for storage.
