How To Make Bath Bombs

  • 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 (grapeseed oil, water, food coloring, and essential oil) into a 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. 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.
  • 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.
