Have you ever wondered how to make homemade bath bombs? If so you’re in the right place. Today I’m going to show you how to make DIY bath bombs using the essential oil lavender.
Lavender is a great oil to use when learning how to make your own bath bombs. I use lavender for many things and love how it relaxes the body and helps my daughter to sleep.
making your own bath bombs is great as you get to control the ingredients and know exactly what you’re putting into your baths and ultimately onto your skin.
How To Make Your Own Bath Bombs
- 2 oz Epsom salt
- 4 oz baking soda
- 2 oz corn starch
- 2 oz citric acid
- 1 tbsp grapeseed oil
- ½ tbsp water
- 1 drop violet soap dye
- 20 drops Lavender essential oil
How To Make Homemade 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 and food colouring (and if you’re using lavender 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 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 colour 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.
