Have you ever had a bath bomb? If not, you are missing out! I absolutely love these, and they are easy to become addicted to. It’s even more fun to make them yourself.
It’s the citrus acid that makes them fizz. This ingredient is actually easier to find that you would think. There’s two different places online we’ve managed to find it. One of them is Shaman Shop, and the other is Mountain Rose Herbs.
Here’s a real basic and easy recipe for making fizzy bath bombs:
Bath Bombs/Bath Fizzies
2 tbs. citric acid
2 tbs. cornstarch
1/4 cup baking soda
3 tbs. coconut oil (or any other emollient oil like almond, avocado or apricot kernel oil)
1/4 tsp. fragrance oil
3-6 drops of food coloring (if desired)
Paper candy cups
Place all of the dry ingredients (first 3) into a bowl and mix well. Place coconut oil into a small glass bowl and add fragrance and food coloring. Slowly add oil mixture into dry ingredients and mix well. Scoop up small amounts of the mixture and shape into 1″ balls. Let the balls rest on a sheet of waxed paper for about 2 to 3 hours, then place each ball into a candy cup to let dry and harden for 24 to 48 hours. Store bombs in a closed, air-tight container. To use, drop 1 to 3 bombs into warm bath water.
