The Easiest Bath Bomb Recipe!

I've been wanting to make bath bombs for a while now because I love a good bath bomb, but don't like the pricing of said bath bombs. We are talking $6-$9 a piece!! To me, that price tag just isn't worth it. Thank goodness you can make these on your own!
To make bath bombs, you'll need quite a few ingredients, but once you have them, you can make enough to last you for months.

You will need:
- 2 oz. Epsom Salt
- 2 oz. Citric Acid
- 2 oz. Corn Starch
- 1 1/4 tsp. Coconut Oil
- 4 oz. Baking Soda
- 1 tsp. Water
- Food Coloring
- Essential Oils
- Bath Bomb Mold
- A food scale to measure the ingredients
Put all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly. I used a food scale to measure all the ingredients. It's faster and more accurate than using measuring cups.
Add all the wet ingredients into a vessel and microwave until the coconut oil is melted. This mixture will not combine completely, so just mix as much as you can. I used around 10 drops of essential oils, but you can use less of more. I found that 10 drops was pretty fragrant. Use as much food coloring as you'd like, but you don't need much!
This is the part that can get tricky and seem a little scary, but if you take it slow it will be fine! The trick is to pour a tiny amount of liquid at a time while also stirring the dry mix vigorously. This is demonstrated better in the video below. I also stir so vigorously that I lose some of the mixture in the process. The mixture does make a tiny fizzing noise and it's not a big deal! Just keep stirring.
Towards the end of stirring the mixtures together I just use my hand. When the mixture starts to clump together when squeezed, it's time for the next step!
Scoop the mixture into a bath bomb mold. Make sure both sides have heaping amounts in them. Pack it in with you fingers. Add more if needed. Then squish both sides of the bath bomb together. If there is extra mixture it will squish out and that is perfect.
I used this little brush to clean up the edge of the bath bomb. This is not necessary but it does make it look a little more professional. And then as soon as you have compacted the mixture it's time to take the molds back off. Very carefully remove the bath bomb and lay it on a paper towel to dry out for a day. They start drying out pretty quickly so you want to move fast.
Here's a little video of the process! Makes it a lot easier to understand how it works.
See how easy it is to make your own bath bombs? I experimented with multi-colored ones right after I made these reddish pink ones. I definitely will have another recipe for more fun looking bath bombs in the near future. I haven't decided what direction I will go with them so if you have an idea I'd love to hear it!
