¼ c baking soda
⅛ c (2 T) citric acid
⅛ c (2 T) arrowroot starch (you can also use cornstarch)
1.5 T sweet almond oil (or any oil you prefer- coconut, olive, etc)
4–8 drops of food coloring
6–8 drops of essential oils of your choice
- Using a mixer with the whisk attachment, add all ingredients and increase speed to high. Mix until the food coloring is fully incorporated, about 2-3 minutes. The final mixture should feel like wet sand.
- If you have bath bomb molds, you can tightly pack the mixture into your molds. If you don’t have molds- don’t worry! We used a standard muffin tin with silicone muffin liners. You can also use traditional paper liners. This just ensures that the bath bombs come out easily when they’re dry!
- Allow the bath bombs to fully dry (about 24 hours). Store in an airtight container until you’re ready to use.
Yield: This recipe makes 3 bath bombs! That way you can make multiple batches with different colors and scents.
