What is a bath bomb?

If you don’t know what a bath bomb is, it’s essentially a ball made primarily from sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), which is combined with additional ingredients such as essential oils, fragrances, and other additives.
These balls are then dropped into the tub filled with hot water, releasing an amazing aroma of essential oils, as well as helping to give your skin a spa-like treatment when you soak in the tub after wards.

Ingredients for the Best Bath Bomb Recipe:

Citric acid – the rarer ingredient in this recipe that many don’t have (you’ll have to buy some).  The fizzy reaction is like swimming in champagne.
Cornstarch gives us the silky feeling that we all love in bath bombs.  In this recipe, we typically use organic cornstarch powder.  Arrowroot works as well but does not provide a finished product as silky.
Oil, salt, and liquid – these are all very flexible and you can choose any mix.
Oil – pick a basic olive oil, almond oil, or coconut oil.
Salt – stick to basic salt or add Epsom salt or another favorite salt choice.
Liquid – simple water works, but herbal witch hazel is also useful for extra skin soothing.
Add scents and colors with natural additives, colorants, and essential oils.

How to make a bath bomb step by step:

1) Get a large bowl and add in 10 ounces of baking soda and 5 ounces citric acid (You can find it at any craft store).
2) And then add 2 tablespoons of witch hazel or alcohol for dissolving the citric acid.  If you have dry botanicals, this is the time to add them too.  Mix everything until the ingredients are well combined.
3) Next, slowly pour water into the bowl (start with 1 cup).  You can also add essential oils for fragrance.  Mix again until it forms a dough-like consistency.
4) Finally, take your bath bomb dough and pack it into plastic wrap.  Make a ball with the dough, then push it flat.  Add more water if needed.

Tips for Making the Best Bath Bombs:

Use high-quality ingredients. The better the ingredients, the better the bath bomb. Choose a high-quality baking soda, citric acid, and Epsom salt.
Mix the dry ingredients thoroughly. It's important to make sure the dry ingredients are evenly mixed before adding the wet ingredients.
Use the right amount of wet ingredients. Too much moisture will cause the mixture to fizz and activate prematurely. Too little moisture will result in a crumbly mixture that won't hold its shape.
Be patient. Allow the bath bombs to dry fully before attempting to remove them from the mold. This will ensure that they hold their shape and don't crumble.
Experiment with scents and colors. The beauty of making your own bath bombs is that you can customize them to your liking. Try different essential oils and food coloring to create unique scents and colors.

Making bath bombs is a fun and easy DIY project that can enhance your bath time experience. By using high-quality ingredients and following the best bath bomb recipe, you can create bath bombs that fizz, release pleasant scents, and nourish your skin. Experiment with different scents and colors to create bath bombs that are uniquely yours.
