Drying time 1day
Total Time 1day15minutes
Servings 4jumbo bath bombs
1 1/2cupsbaking soda
20dropsessential oilI used vanilla and orange
mica powderoptional for coloring
In a large bowl, combine baking soda and citric acid together and mix well.
Add coconut oil and essential oils and work together, using your hands. I like to wear gloves for this part!Once the mix is the consistency of wet sand and starts to stick together it is ready to mold into bath bombs.
Use half of the mold and scoop up a heaping scoop of the mixture. Repeat with the other half of the mold. Don't pack them in, just let them be heaping. Then, press the two halves together and give them a gentle twist to lock them together. Brush away any excess mixture that came out the sides.
Carefully open up the mold and see if your bath bomb is formed enough to remove from the mold. You may need to let it sit for a few minutes and firm up. We usually take them out right away though. It will depend on the consistency of your mixture. If needed, you can add extra dry ingredients or coconut oil depending on if your mixture is too dry or too wet. This will vary depending on your local climate.
Remove onto a tray and allow to sit undisturbed for 24 hours or until dry and firm. Store in a glass container for up to 6 mos.
