Citrus Essential Oil Bath Bombs Recipe:
- 1 cup baking soda
- 3/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/2 cup epsom salt
- 1/2 cup citric acid (Find it here in Canada or here in the US)
- 2 tablespoons almond oil – (Find it here in Canada or here in the US)
- 3 teaspoons witch hazel – (Find it here in Canada or here in the US)
- 1 teaspoon green mica powder (or color of choice) – (Find it here in Canada or here in the US)
- 10 drops wild orange essential oil – (I use & recommend doTERRA essential oils)
- 10 drops grapefruit essential oil – (I use & recommend doTERRA essential oils)
- Bath bomb molds or a muffin tin (Find them here in Canada or here in the US)
- Small spray bottle with water
1. In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients and mix well. Make sure there are no clumps.
2. In a small glass bowl, combine the almond oil, essential oils and witch hazel. Whisk.
3. Pour the liquid mixture into the large bowl, it will fizz once the liquid touches it.
4. Begin mixing using a fork (or your hands) until everything looks combined and somewhat moist.
5. Prep your molds and use a spoon to fill the both sides of the molds. Using a silicone spatula, press the mixture into the molds firmly. Spray each mold with a small bit of water (one spray) and press down again to make sure they’re firm.
Note: Using too much water will cause the bombs to lose their fizz. If you don’t press down firmly, the bombs will not hold together.
6. Divide the rest of the mixture into the molds and again press down firmly. Spray the top with water and press down again.
7. Press the two sides of the mold together.
7. Let sit on the counter for 24 hours to set before removing from molds.
Yield: This will vary depending on the side of the mold you use.
SAFETY NOTE: the mica powder and the almond oil used in this recipe will leave your bath a bit slippery so take caution when getting out!
