Bath bombs offer the perfect solution to spice up bath time for the kids or mommy time at the end of a long day. This great tutorial on how to make bath bombs without citric acid offers the perfect solution to creating a luxurious bath for yourself.
1. Mix Dry Ingredients.
Using a glass bowl, combine baking soda and epsom salt for soothing muscles and softening skin. Next, combine the corn starch as your binding agent. Lastly, add citric acid to the bowl which serves as the reactor to the baking soda, creating the fizz. Whisk together until combined.
2. Mix Wet Ingredients.
Using a cup, pour castor oil for its therapeutic properties and natural anti-inflammatory properties and hydration abilities. Next, add essential oil for scent and soap or food coloring for color preference. Lastly, drop in a little water to combine the wet ingredients together.
3. Combine All Ingredients.
Take your wet ingredients and slowly whisk them into the glass bowl of dry ingredients. Make sure not to pour too much at once so as not to activate its chemical properties. When done, pour into both sides of a round bulb mold and close securely until it snaps and let dry overnight. To cure sooner, place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes until dry.
4. Remove Bath Bomb from the Mold.
To remove from mold, tap around the sides of the mold and carefully open to release the bath bomb.
Add a tag to the mold and give as a gift to a friend to enjoy!
