WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
Bath Bomb Mold
Large Mixing Bowl
Small Mixing Bowl
1 Cup Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Citric Acid
1/2 Cup Epsom Salt
1/2 Cup Cornstarch
2 TSP Essentials Oil
1 TSP Water
3 TSP Olive Oil
Food Coloring (any color)
1| In your large bowl, mix all of your dry ingredients evenly with your whisk. Rise and dry your whisk when done to avoid a reaction with Step 2.
2| In your small bowl, mix all of you wet ingredients evenly with your whisk. Add 10-15 drops of food coloring to get desired color.
3| Pour a small amount of your liquid mixture into your dry ingredients and stir until evenly absorbed. Continue this method until you've used all of your liquid mixture. Be careful not to add too much at a time to avoid a reaction.
4| Once all of your ingredients are well mixed it's time to create some shape! Put in a little more then you typically would on each side to make sure your bath bomb is pressed/ solid and close the molds together until they clip.
5| Carefully open the mold and let your bath bombs dry for 1-2 days!
It's that simple! Make yourself extra to always have for the shower or even to gift for upcoming birthday/ holidays! For questions or comments please comment below! Also, share with us your results by #sodamselDIY on Instagram or tag us @So_Damsel on Instagram! xo
