How to Make Natural Bath Bombs
To make the bath bomb mixture, start by adding the dry ingredients into a large bowl.
Simply blend the dry mixture together until it’s well combined.
Then, add wet ingredients like the oil mixture, drops of essential oils, and coloring until it reaches the desired consistency of wet sand.
If your mixture is more like damp sand, add a few teaspoons of water to get it just right.
Be careful not to add too much liquid mixture or your bath bombs will fizz before you even put them in the tub!
Mix everything thoroughly so that the different colors and scents are evenly distributed.
Once everything is mixed together, simply press the mixture into molds and let it harden.
You want to press it into the sides of the mold too so it forms a nice ball shape.
Let the bath bombs dry overnight and then they’re ready to use!
To use, just drop one into a bathtub of warm water and enjoy a nice relaxing bath.
That’s it! With just a little bit of time, you can make your very own bath bombs.
