Learn how to make these beautiful, fragrant, skin-softening bath bombs!
What You Need:
- Bath bomb mold
- Whisk or wooden spoon
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup corn starch
- 1/2 cup citric acid powder
- 1/2 cup Epsom salt
- 3 tsp coconut oil (melted)
- 3 tsp water
- 1/2 cup organic dried rose petals
- Fragrance Oil. We recommend 10 drops of Rose and 10 drops of Vanilla
- In a large bowl, place all the dry ingredients together. Mix well with a whisk or large spoon, making sure there are no clumps.
- Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan on low heat. Slowly add the oil to the dry ingredients. If you notice a bit too much fizzing of the dry ingredients, add the oil even slower. Mix gently as you go.
- Add the water next, then the fragrance oils. Again, mix well and add the wet ingredients slowly.
- Once the mixture is ready, scoop approximately 1 tablespoon of the dried rose petals into one half of your bath bomb mold.
- Add the bath bomb mixture. Firmly pat the mixture to conform to your mold, slightly overfilling it. Do the same with the other half of the mold, omitting the petals on the bottom portion. Put the two sides together and press firmly over the mixing bowl, allowing the excess mixture to fall back into the bowl.
- Place on cookie sheet or cutting board to set. Don’t leave the bombs in the mold too long or they will be harder to remove. We learned this the hard way. If you remove them too soon and they crumble, simply place them back in the mold and give them more time to set. 3 hours of curing time is about right.
**Note: Make sure to use a strainer when draining your bathtub when done! It makes removing the rose petals after bathing easier!
