Bath Bombs

Bath Bombs

Create your own moisturizing bath bombs with your favorite essential oils. A delightful, fragrant, relaxing gift for Mother's day, Valentine's Day, birthdays or "just because."



  1. Mix baking soda and cornstarch together. Add canola oil, food coloring and essential oil.
  2. Using a water mister, mist the mixture lightly one time. Mix well until there are no lumps and the color is well-blended.
  3. Add citric acid. Heap as much of mixture as possible into a mold. Press down very firmly packing the mixture well. Do not add more mixture to the mold after firmly packing it, as it will not create a cohesive bath bomb.
  4. Let the bath bomb air dry for 1-2 days.

Makes one bomb.

Essential Oil Idea: Use Lavender essential oil as well as 1/2 teaspoon (2mL) of dried lavender blossoms. Add the lavender blossoms when mixing the baking soda and cornstarch together.
