Bath Bombs


  • 2 tablespoons citric acid
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼ cup baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil (or you can use any other emollient oil like almond oil, avocado oil or apricot kernel oil)
  • ¼ teaspoon fragrance oil or essential oil
  • 3 to 6 drops food coloring

Place all of the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix well.

In a small glass bowl melt oil then add fragrance and colorant.

Slowly add oil mixture to dry ingredients and blend well.

Take spoonfuls of the mixture and shape into balls. Balls should be about one inch in diameter.

Let the balls rest on a sheet of waxed paper for two to three hours. Gently reshape if needed.

Let the bombs (balls) dry and harden for twenty-four to forty-eight hours.
