These chamomile and lavender bath bombs are really easy to whip up in minutes. They smell good and they are great for moisturizing your skin and relaxing your body as well. The recipe makes approximately 10 bath bombs but you could easily double or triple the recipe to stock up. You can make them for yourself or as a gift for a friend. Make a batch of them and enjoy a nice relaxing bath today!
The dried herbs in this recipe are a little messy but they’re a great way to add a nice scent and color without using artificial dye.
- 1 cup baking soda
- 3/4 cup citric acid
- 3/4 cup epsom salt
- 3/4 cup cornstarch
- dried herbs (optional)
- 20 drops essential oil (your choice, although I do recommend lavender)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 4 tsp water
In a large bowl, combine baking soda, citric acid, epsom salt and cornstarch. Add in dried herbs if using them*. Mix well to get any clumps out. Add in essential oil and coconut oil, and give it a good whirl. Slowly add in water, stirring after each addition. It’ll fizz a little as you add in the water.
You can divvy this mixture out into ice cube trays, different molds, or use a meat baller to form balls. You could even free form them with your hands, although they might not look as nice.
