• Baking soda• Cornstarch• Citric acid (You can buy this at the baking supplies store)• Spritzbottles• Food coloring• Glass bowl• Essential oils (The most relaxing are lavender and peppermint)• Baking molds (Foldable, elastic types are great for this particular DIY project.)
1. Work ¾ cup of baking soda, two cups cornstarch and a cup of citric acid through a sieve to break down the clumps.2. In another container, add water and a few drops of food coloring. This will be used to make your desired hue for the bath bomb. You may add a few drops of your preferred essential oil as well. Feel free to make different batches of scents and colors. Then, combine them later.3. In a large mixing bowl, take a cup of the powdered mixture and spritz it lightly a bit of the food coloring and essential oil mixture. Do it slowly so that the water will not fizz out the bath bomb.4. Pack about ¼ cup of the mixture tightly into the baking mold. This will be enough for one bath.5. Let it set for an hour then carefully pop it out of the mold. No need to bake.
