“When in Doubt, Take a Bath.” -Mae West
After a long day our de-stress bath bomb is the best way to relax. So grab a glass of wine (or juice) and take a load off. This recipe took a little while to perfect, but if you follow the recipe exactly…it should be a breeze. Getting the supplies can cost a bit, but you will get a lot out bath bombs of it.
Here is what we used:
- 1 Cup Citric Acid
- 1 Cup Baking Soda
- 1/2 Cornstarch
- 1/2 Cup Melted Coconut Oil
- 21 Drops of Essential Oil(s)
- Silicone Mold (or a mold of your choice)
- Food Coloring (Optional)
- Glitter (Optional
- In large bowl combine all dry ingredients. (If you are using food coloring, now would be the time to add it.) We have found that the best way to mix, is using your hands. We used gloves so that our hands did not stain. Keep using drops till you reach the desired intensity. We used 12 drops of blue and 6 drops of green to get the beautiful aqua color. When you mix the food coloring to the dry ingredients the color will look light, but it will get darker when added the wet ingredients.
2. Put 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil in a microwave safe bowl and melt. (About 20 seconds).
3. Pour the wet ingredients slowly to the dry ingredients. We just poured spoonfuls at a time while mixing with one hand. You will want the consistency of wet sand. (Think sand castle.) To check squeeze the mixture in your hand and once it all sticks together with out crumbling, it is ready.
4. When the mixture is ready you are going to add your essential Oils. We used 7 drops each of Lavender, Chamomile, and Frankincense. Equaling to 21 drops. (This blend can help to relive stress and anxiety.:)
5. Now you are ready to put the mixture into your mold. Make sure you pack the mixture down firmly.
6. Let your mixture sit in the mold for about 24 hours. Or if you are impatient like us you can put them in the freezer. Ours were ready in only 2 hours 🙂
If you love bath bombs as much as us, you have to try this recipe. You will love it!
