Eucalyptus Bath Bombs Tutorial
Makes: 6 Bath Bombs
- 1 cup of citric acid crystals
- 1 ¼ cup of corn starch
- 2 cups of baking soda
- ½ cup of basic Epsom salts
- spray bottle with water
- food coloring
- 7-10 drops of Eucalyptus essential oil
- Bath bomb mold (if you don’t have a bath bomb mold you can use an ice cube tray)
- mixing bowl
1. In a mixing bowl mix your dry ingredients. This includes the citric acid, corn starch, baking soda, and Epsom salt. Mix well.
2. Add a few drops of green food coloring or coloring of your choice. This is optional and you are free to leave them plain white if you wish. Mix well.
3. Now add your 7-10 drops of eucalyptus oil. You will notice some slight fizzing which is normal. Mix quickly.
4. To create the paste, you will now spray in a few sprays of water. In all you will add about two teaspoons at most. Start off slow and small, spraying and mixing until the mixture starts to clump.
5. When the mixture can be molded in your hands, press it into your ice cube trays or your bath bomb mold. Pack it in well.
6. Turn the mold over and let the bomb come out. Allow it to dry for 24 hours.
If you find that your bath bombs won’ t stay together or have added too much water, try adding a little more cornstarch to thicken the mixture up and hold it together. You can store them in any airtight container, baggie, or jar.
To Use: Simply drop a Eucalyptus Bath Bomb into a warm bath and it will do its magic.
