Wonderful Bath Bombs Recipes
smooth, moisturize and detox for beautiful skin
Bath bombs also known as bath fizzies are easy to make and fun to give. They can be easily customized to suit your skin type or condition and scented to your liking. Bath bombs can be made to relieve stress by using stress relieving aromatherapy oils or soothe and nourish the skin with essential oils and other botanicals and sea salt. Watch the video and see how easy they are to make! The basic bath bomb consists of 2 ingredients: 2 parts baking soda to 1 part citric acid, and water.

Below are a couple of bath bomb recipes that you can easily customize. Watch the Bath Bomb Video
Itchy Skin Soother Bath Bomb Recipe
Ingredients:
2 cups baking soda
1 cup citric acid
1 cup oat flour
Wetting agents: 1 - 2 teaspoons almond,grape seed orolive oil (do not use almond oil if allergic to nuts)
1/2 - 1 teaspoon fragrance or essential oil
5 drops food coloring (or more depending on your preference - optional)
Small amount of water



Moisturizing Bath Bomb Recipe
Ingredients:
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup corn starch
1/4 cup Epson Salts
1/2 cup Citric Acid
Wetting agents:
2 3/4 tablespoons almond oil, olive oil or grape seed oil (do not use almond oil if allergic to nuts)
3/4 tablespoon of water
1/4 teaspoon of Borax
1 1/2 teaspoon lavender essential oil or fragrance oil
5 drops food coloring (or more depending on your preference - optional)

Instructions apply to both bath bomb recipes above.

Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Thoroughly mix with a wire whisk for about a minute. Because of the dust it produces you may want to cover your nose and mouth with a mask or bandana.

Mix the wetting ingredients in a small bow and mix. Quickly stir in the wetting mix into the large bowl of dry ingredients stirring quickly to eliminate unnecessary fizzing. Stir for at least a minute.

You mix should hold together when pinched between your fingers. It should not stick to your fingers, be doughy or overly wet. Important: if your mix is too wet mix up 2 parts baking soda to one part citric acid and add to mix. If you just add more corn starch or Epsom salts or whatever you lessen the fizz in your bath bomb.

Molding - in order to keep costs minimal and for first timers I suggest you mold these into 1 inch bombs. Fill a tablespoon full of mix and compress, then pop out the mix and mold into a ball. Let try about a half hour you can roll them in your hands and smooth them out as best you can. There are endless possibilities for molding such as purchasing molds, old Easter egg shells, silly putty shells, caps off of bottles and press together, etc. Set out to dry overnight. However if you wish to purchase molds then get them or Amazon.com

Personally I like the 1 inch bombs as they are easier to store. Colorant - there are options if you wish to color your bath bomb such as food coloring or powdered colors.

Storage - bath bombs need to be stored in a airtight container. Again the possiblities are endless: wrap in colored saran wrap and tie a ribbon around them, place in covered glass/plastic jar with lid. etc.

The possibilities are endless for making bath bombs. Consider adding Shea butter, cosmetic clay, aloe powder, milk or goat milk powder, etc. Fragrances are endless too. Get all your ingredients at Mountain Rose Herbs
