Plop. Plop. Fizz. Fizz. Oh what a relief it is! Bath Bombs are the best way to enjoy bath time, to make it fragrant, relaxing and slow - a reward for making it through the day. If you're after a relaxing, petal-laden floral soak, this is perfect.
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup citric acid
1/2 cup cornstarch
3 tablespoons epsom salt
2 teaspoons sweet almond oil
3/4 teaspoon water
15 drops lavender essential oil
3 tablespoons dried organic lavender flowers
plastic ornament or silicone mold
Instructions: In a large bowl combine dry ingredients: baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, epsom salt and dried lavender. In a small bowl combine wet ingredients: almond oil, water, and essential oil.
Slowly pour wet mixture into dry mixture. Mix with a whisk until fully combined. Test mixture by pressing a handful together. It should feel and pack similar to damp sand. If the mixture doesn’t hold, lightly mist with a spray bottle filled with water once or twice.
Avoid adding too much water or the mixture will fizz and not form in the mold correctly. Once it’s the right consistency press mixture into mold and allow to dry at least 2 hours before removing. Set bath bombs on a soft towel to dry overnight.
