DIY Essential Oil Bath Bombs


I found a great relaxation bath bomb recipe the other day from A Beautiful Mess and knew I had to try them for myself! They were really fun & easy to make. At first I had a little trouble getting the consistency right, but when they hardened up they were amazing!

These would make great little shower favors or gifts for a friend who could use a little rest & relaxation!

DIY Essential Oil Bath Bombs
Great relaxation bath bomb recipe!
  • 4oz Baking Soda
  • 2oz Corn Starch
  • 2oz Citric Acid
  • 2oz Epsom Salt
  • 1-1 1/2 tsp Water
  • 1 tsp Essential Oil
  • 1 1/4 tsp Coconut Oil
  • 1-2 drops Food Coloring
In a bowl combine the dry ingredients (the first four listed above). Whisk to remove any clumps, corn starch tends to be clumpy. In a small glass jar stir together the wet ingredients (the last four ingredients listed). If you're using coconut oil, give it a quick melt in the microwave or stove top first so it will more easily combine with the other ingredients. Slowly pour the liquid mixture in with the dry mixture, whisking as you go. If you see the mixture fizz or foam, you may be adding the liquid too quickly. Once all the wet ingredients are combined with the dry, take a small amount in your hand and squeeze it together. It should stick together fairly well in one or two big chunks. If it's still too powdery to hold together, just add a tiny bit more water and mix until it does hold together.
