Why pay up to $30 for expensive bath bombs when you can do it yourself for a fraction of the cost. You’ll feel like “da’ bomb” just for saving the money!
Here’s what you need:
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 2 teaspoons mango
- shea or deodorized cocoa butter (melted)
- 2 to 4 teaspoons scented essential oil or fragrance oil
- 1 tablespoon distilled water
Here’s what you do:
Mix baking soda, cornstarch, and citric acid together in glass or stainless steel bowl. Make a well in the middle and drizzle melted butter and scent. Blend well. Add a few drops of desired colorant to your distilled water and add to your other ingredients. It will fizz a little. If it fizzes too much, use less water next time. Pack firmly into soap mold. The more compact you do this the better your bomb will be. Turn out onto wax paper or plastic wrap. Let dry and harden. After a few hours, package.
