How to Make DIY Rainbow Bath Bombs
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1 cup citric acid (where to buy)
- ¼ cup cornstarch
- ¼ cup olive oil, coconut oil, OR almond oil (whichever you prefer)
- 10 drops Lavender essential oil (where to buy)
- 10 drops Orange essential oil (where to buy)
- Soap colorant
- Water in a spray bottle
You will also need: bath bomb molds
1. Combine baking soda, citric acid, and cornstarch well; Stir in oil slowly. Add essential oils to mixture.
2. Spray water one spritz at a time, mixing with your hands until it is just barely damp. You do not want it bubbling, just wet enough so that it sticks together when squeezed tightly.
3. Divide mixture into smaller bowls and add a few drops of colorant to each, as many as you want to make. Mix up well.
4. Spray the inside of each bath mold with some non-stick cooking spray so that it’s easier to remove the balls after they’ve dried.
5. Alternate adding colors to the bath molds, a couple of teaspoons at a time, pressing firmly into both sides of mold.
6. Fit both side of mold together and allow your bath bomb to dry out overnight before gently removing from the mold. I used these metal molds to get a big ball shape like you might find at the stores but you could also use a silicone shaped mold or even a muffin tin.
Keep bath bomb in a cool dry place until ready to use.
To use: drop one bath bomb under warm running water and relax in the warm bath!
