Fizzy Bath Bomb Recipe

Basic Fizzy Bath Bomb Recipe


Materials
Sifter
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup citric acid*
Mixing bowls
Gloves
Essential oil of your choice (see below for recommendations)
Food coloring (optional for color)
Water
Ice cube traymuffin tin or silicone mold
Tissue paper

*Tip: Most supermarkets carry citric acid. Look for it near the canning supplies.
Instructions
1. Sift baking soda and citric acid into a mixing bowl and, wearing gloves, mix well.
2. In a smaller bowl, combine essential oil, food coloring and 1 teaspoon water.
3. With gloves on, mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients until texture is crumbly and can just hold its shape when squeezed with your hands. Add more water, if needed. Work quickly so the mixture doesn't have a chance to fizz.
4. Tightly pack mixture into molds. Let sit overnight (do not place in direct sunlight).
5. Tap molds to release bath bombs. Wrap in tissue paper and store in an airtight container. Use the bath bombs within two weeks, as they will lose their fizzing power if kept in storage too long.

Recommended Essential Oils

A wide variety of essential oils are available, each with its own unique scent that can be used for different therapeutic results. Here are a few favorites that can be used to create the ultimate bath bomb experience:
  • Eucalyptus: A woody, stimulating scent used to help relieve sinus and respiratory ailments.
  • Grapefruit: A citrusy, refreshing scent used to boost moods.
  • Lavender: A floral scent with a calming, healing effect.
Tip: Help kids calm down before bedtime (and get them excited about bath time!) by dropping a lavender bath bomb in the tub.
  • Peppermint: A stimulating scent with a strong, minty aroma.
  • Tangerine: A fruity, sweet scent that produces a calming effect.
