Groovy Bath Bombs

  • 1 cup citric acid
  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 20 drops essential oils
  • 2 tsp water (add up to 1 additional tsp if mixture is not holding together)
  • Natural Food coloring (if desired)

bath-bombs-2Blend dry ingredients. Mix liquids separately. Add liquids to dry ingredients very slowly, mixing fast and well. If you see the mixture foaming up, add liquids slower and mix more thoroughly. It should feel like damp sand after. Mold into balls while wet. Bigger bombs will create more fizz. Smaller bombs will dry faster. Let dry completely and store in an airtight container until use. Use within a month. If the bombs turn into a fizzy mess, there was too much water used. You can add more baking soda and citric acid in a 2:1 ratio to save it.
