It has a relaxing combination of essential oils and delicate dried flowers that make it delightful! Don’t forget to grab your favorite novel to read while you wind down for the day. Are you ready for this floral DIY bath bomb tutorial?! Let’s get started!
Ingredients and Tools Needed:
- Bath bomb molds
- Medium size mixing bowl
- Measuring cups and spoons
- Spoon for mixing
- Dry lavender, rose, and/or calendula flowers
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup Citric acid
- 1/2 cup Epsom salt
- 1/2 cup corn starch
- 1 tablespoon of unscented liquid castile soap
- 6 drops of Lavender essential oil
- 6 drops of Bergamot essential oil
- 6 drops of Palmarosa essential oil
How to Make DIY Bath Bombs:
1: In the medium mixing bowl add: 1 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup citric acid, 1/2 cup epsom salt, and 1/2 cup corn starch. Mix until evenly combined.
2: To the dry mixture, add in 10 drops of both lavender and bergamot essential oils. Stir well to incorporate.
3: Next, to the dry mixture, add in 1 tablespoon of unscented liquid castile soap. Stir to combine. Check moisture - it should be crumbly but able to stick together. (add water 1/4 tsp at a time until correct consistency is aquired)
4: Add a small handful of dried flowers if desired. OR Sprinkle a pinch of desired dry flowers into mold bottoms.
5: Firmly press into molds, and then press 2 mold halves together.
7: Set them aside to dry for at least 48 hours. (tip, setting the balls on muffin tins keeps them from rolling away)
8: Once dry, remove from the molds and store in an airtight container until ready to use.
9: To use, add 1 bath bomb to a bath water and enjoy!
