Citrus Bath Bomb Recipe
Bath bombs are the ultimate diy gift for any occasion- who doesn’t like feeling pampered? Not only do these bombs make your skin and muscles feel good but they also perk up your mood!
These bath bombs use mica powder to for coloring and pure essential oils for scent. This makes them an all natural alternative to store bought options.
The bombs also contain almond oil which not only helps keep them together but gives your skin a silky boost as well.
While the recipe shown in this video is different, it shows you the textures and process of making homemade bath bombs:
Ingredients for Citrus Bliss Bath Bombs
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup epsom salt
- 3/4 cup cornstarch
- 2 tbs almond oil
- 3 teaspoons which hazel
- 1 teaspoon red mica powder
- 25 drops citrus bliss essential oil
- Small spray bottle with water
Note: from the mica powder and the almond oil these bombs will leave your bath a bit slippery- so take caution when getting out!
How to Make Energizing Bath Bombs
In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients and mix well. Make sure there are no clumps.
In a small glass bowl, combine the almond oil, essential oils and witch hazel. Whisk.
Pour the liquid mixture into the large bowl, it will fizz once the liquid touches it.
Begin mixing using a fork (or your hands) until everything looks combined and somewhat moist.
Prep your silicone molds and use a spoon to fill the molds halfway. Using a silicone spatula, press the mixture into the molds firmly. Spray each mold with a small bit of water (one spray) and press down again to make sure they’re firm.
Using too much water will cause the bombs to lose their fizz. If you don’t press down firmly, the bombs will not hold together.
Divide the rest of the mixture into the molds and again press down firmly. Spray the top with water and press down again.
Let sit on the counter for twenty four hours to set before removing from molds.
