With everything going on at the moment we all need a little relaxation , why not give yourself some tlc with your own homemade bath bombs? Made with Organic Coconut Oil, they’ll not only help soak your worry away but also smooth and hydrate any dry skin. Creating them is a fun activity you can get the kids involved with too!
What you’ll need:
125g baking soda
60g citric acid
60g epsom salt
coloring pigment – optional
2 1/2 tablespoons melted Organic Coconut Oil (my favourite is Biona)
3/4 tablespoon water
12-15 drops essential oil
My favourite essential oil is Bergamot & Lavender and one of my Trusted suppliers is FRESH SKIN.
Bath bomb molds
- In a medium bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients. Add as much or as little color pigment to achieve the desired look. Whisk to combine.
- In a separate small bowl, mix together the wet ingredients.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones very slowly. (This is very important; otherwise you will activate the citric acid which is used to create the fizzing effect.) Mix until combined, and the ingredients look like wet sand.
- Fill each half of the mold, packing the mixture in slightly until it’s overflowing. Press the halves together firmly. Let the filled mold sit for one minute. Lightly tap the mold and gently pull it apart to remove the bath bomb. Let the bath bombs dry for 24 hours before enjoying in the tub.
