DIY Hazelnut Coffee Bath Bombs
Follow these directions to make your own delicious smelling bath bombs to enhance your bath experience.
- 2 oz Epsom salt
- 4 oz baking soda
- 2 oz corn starch
- 2 oz citric acid
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- ½ tbsp water
- 2 tablespoons Hazelnut coffee grounds
- Large bowl
- 2-3 medium size round bath bomb molds
- Small mason jar with lid
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
- Mix the dry ingredients first (Epsom salt, baking soda, cornstarch and citric acid), using the whisk. Mix well to ensure there are no clumps.
- Add half the coffee grounds. Stir well until combined.
- Pour the wet ingredients (coconut oil and water) into jar, secure the lid and shake well.
- Very slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture, about a few drops at time, while whisking. If you’re not pouring slowly enough, the mixture will start to fizz and you don’t want that to happen.
- Once all of the liquid has been poured into the dry mixture, mix very well until the color is consistent.
- Put some of the coffee grounds into one side of each mold.
- Immediately fill the molds with the mixture, firmly stuffing each side full.
- Secure both parts of the mold together and let set. I always give it about a day, just to be on the safe side.
- Carefully release bath bombs from molds and put into an airtight container, or individual cello bags.
