Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 1 minute, plus 12 hours set up
1/2 cup Baking Soda
1/2 cup Ball Jar Citric Acid
1/4 cup Cornstarch
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
4 drops Purple Food Coloring
4 drops Lavender Essential Oil
Silicone mold tray
In a medium sized mixing bowl combine all your dry ingredients (baking soda, citric acid, and cornstarch); mix well.
Add about four drops of purple food coloring to your bowl and mix with your hands and fingertips.
Add 4 drops of (therapeutic grade) lavender essential oil to your bowl and mix with your hands.
Heat 1/4 cup coconut oil in the microwave for about 20 seconds (be careful as coconut oil heats very fast).
Add your melted coconut oil a little at a time to your dry mix, mixing with your hands.
Once all of your coconut oil is added your mixtures should feel like damp sand.
Start filling a silicone mold of your choice with your bath bomb mixture.
Press your mixture firmly into your molds.
Let dry for approximately 12 hours then turn your mold upside down and carefully pop out your lavender bath bombs.
To use your lavender bath bombs, place one in the bottom of your shower or in your warm bath tub to release your bath bomb.
Note: do not rub your eyes during or immediately after use.
