Sometimes as women we put everything before we take care of ourselves. That’s why I love giving these DIY Bath Bombs as gifts for friends and family!
Most women tend to love items they can use to pamper themselves. These bath bombs are no exception. They provide a reason to take a break and unwind in a hot relaxing bath. The combination of oils and the fun fizz factor will make any reason to use them fun!
You can find citric acid at most grocery stores and certainly a hardware store in the canning section.
When you first add the liquid it will fizz a little but that’s totally normal. The first step is to combine your dry ingredients, the Baking Soda, Corn Starch and Citric Acid, then slowly add your liquid and essential oils.
Once you have your mixture ready you can press it into molds, then allow to dry completely before trying to remove or they will crumble. I recommend 24-48 hours, the longer the better!
If you use a Silicone Mold you’ll be able to get them out easily so don’t worry about them being stuck if you wait too long!
Here’s a printable version of the recipe for you!
