Essential Oil Bath Bombs

Bath Bombs are all the craze these days and I can fully understand why! I remember just a few years ago I would go in to make myself a stress-relieving bath using my essential oils and I would have to scoop this much of one thing and that much of another and get the oils dripped in and it was stressing me out just to get the bath ready when all I wanted to do is plop in the tub and forget my troubles! Well, I am happy to say that now I can do exactly that using bath bombs!

Bath Bomb Ingredients

  • 1 cup Baking Soda
  • 1/2 cup  Citric Acid
  • 1/2 cup  Epsom Salt
  • 3/4 cup Cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil for moisturizing
  • 15-20 drops of an essential oil of your choice
  • 2 teaspoons witch hazel (or water) plus a little more if needed ( I didn’t need extra)
  • (optional) complimenting dried herbs
  • (optional) food coloring

Instructions: How to Make Bath Bombs

  1. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl and stir well.
  2. In a small bowl, mix all liquid ingredients well.
  3. Combine liquid ingredients to dry ingredients a little at a time. Mix by hand (use gloves if you have sensitive skin) Add optional dried herbs at this point.
  4. Mixture should stay packed when squeezed without crumbling. If consistency is still crumbly use a spray bottle to mist mixture with witch hazel until proper consistency is achieved.
  5. Quickly press mixture into molds (plastic ornament balls work great for gifting but muffin tins work just fine) 24-48 hours until hardened. Some bath bomb expansion is normal as it dries, pack it back down throughout the drying process to keep it from expanding too much.
  6. Store in airtight container or bag. Use within a couple weeks.

If you are making these as gifts, you can always pack mixture around anything from jewelry to small water tolerant trinkets or toys.

Bath bombs are not only for the bath! Use one in a foot basin while sitting and relaxing and soaking your feet!

I used 20 drops of lavender, 4 drops red food color, 2 drops blue food color, which made a nice soft lavender color for my lavender bath bombs. I used a muffin tin for the “mold” and another muffin tin on top as a press, this made 9 bath bombs.
