AromaTouch Bath Bombs

What you need

  • 140g Bi-carb soda (Baking Soda)
  • 70g Citric Acid
  • 4 tsp (20ml) Liquid/Fractionated  Coconut Oil
  • 10-20 Drops AromaTouch® Essential Oil Blend
  • Natural Food Coloring (optional)
  • Bath Bomb Moulds or Silicone Moulds

Wearing gloves is recommended

Method

Sift the bi-carb soda and citric acid into a bowl and mix well. Add coconut oil, essential oils and coloring (if using).  Remember liquid food coloring is moisture so take it easy.  Excess moisture will cause your mixture to fizz and puff up and your bath bombs will be ruined.

Use your hands to combine the mixture, rubbing it between your fingers to evenly disperse the wet ingredients.  You’ll know your mixture is ready when it sticks together/packs down and can keep its shape.  It will still look kind of dry, but if you take a handful of the mixture and squeeze it, it should pack easily into a ball. If your mixture is too dry add a few more drops of coconut oil and mix again.

Once you get the correct consistency, begin to fill your moulds, pushing down the mixture into the mould and compacting it into place. Compaction is an important step as it may mean the difference between hard or crumbly bath bombs once they are dry.  When using silicone moulds however, be sure not to push down so hard that the mould becomes misshapen.

Set the bath bombs aside to air dry for 24-72 hours. If humidity is high at the time you make your bath bombs (as it was for me), consider drying your bath bombs in the oven on the lowest setting with the fan on for an hour or so.  When sufficiently dry, your bath bombs should release from your mould fairly easily, if they are still wet, they will not fall out with ease.  Store your bath bombs in a plastic zip-lock bag immediately.

Drop 2-3 bath bombs into a bath, or 1 into a bucket of water or foot spa for a foot soak.

Enjoy!
