How to make eucaluptus and lavender bath bombs recipe
This recipe makes 4 bombs if you are using same mold.
- Epsom salt
- baking soda
- corn starch
- citric acid
- olive oil
- dried lavender
- Lavender essential oil
- Purple Mica Powder
- Large bowl
- Small jar with lid
- Bath Bomb Molds – 2.2 inch
- 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.
- Pour the wet ingredients (olive oil, water and essential oil), and the mica into the jar, secure the lid and shake well.
- Very slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture, about a few drops at a time, while whisking the entire time. If you’re not pouring slowly enough, or not continuously whisking, 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 dried lavender into the bottoms of 4 molds.
- Immediately fill the molds with the mixture, firmly stuffing each side full.
- Secure both parts of the mold together, give it a little twist 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 for storage.
