DIY Bath Bomb Recipe


1 cup baking soda1/2 cup cream of tartar1/2 cup corn starch2 tablespoons Epsom salt2 tablespoons coconut oil5 teaspoons water3 drops essential oilfood coloring


Use a large bowl, add baking soda, cream of tartar, corn starch and Epsom salt. Add in the coconut oil into the dry ingredients and mix well until the mixture becomes sandy with an oil feel.

One teaspoon at a time, begin to add water to the dry ingredients, stirring it in immediately with a large spoon.

Continue to add the liquid until your mixture resembles damp sand.

It should still be partially dry, but when you squeeze a handful together it should form a ball.

Add food coloring and your essential oils, by mixing them into the liquid ingredients. If making several colors separate mix in 3 or more bowls and oils and food coloring in each bowl as you desire.

When the mixture is the color you want, take a small amount and press it firmly into each side of your favorite mold shape.

Allow to dry for a 24 hours or more. Gently remove from the molds and place on a flat surface for another 4 hours. Then store in an airtight container until ready to use.

Which essential oils are you going to use in your bath bombs? My favorites for relaxing are doTerra Lavender and Serenity.
