Valentine Bath Bombs Recipe
- ¼ cup Epsom salt
- ½ cup baking soda
- ¼ cup corn starch
- ¼ cup citric acid
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- ½ tbsp water
- 1-2 tsp Rosy mica powder
- 30-50 drops rose essential oil
- Valentine’s sprinkles (hearts used for this project)
- Bath bomb molds
- Large glass or metal bowl
1. In a large bowl, combine Epsom salt, baking soda, corn starch, citric acid, and mica powder with the whisk. This process will take a few minutes, to get all of the ingredients as well as the colorfully combined.
2. In one-half of one of the bath bomb molds, combine the olive oil, water, and essential oil.
3. Very slowly pour liquid into the bowl of other ingredients, whisking the entire time. If you pour too quickly or don’t continuously whisk, you will probably end up activating the mixture (which will start fizzing) and have to start all over from scratch.
4. Using a spoon, lightly fill one-half of each bath bomb mold.
5. Press the mixture around the bottom and sides, leaving a hollow area in the middle.
6. Add sprinkles to the hollow area, and top with more of the bath bomb mixture. Repeat this step for half of the total bombs you’re making.
7. Add bath bomb mixture to the rest of the molds, slightly overfilling.
8. Secure the two halves together, and lightly twist until any excess mixture comes out, and the two ends meet perfectly.
9. Allow to dry or cure for about 12-24 hours.
10. Remove from molds once they are formed. If you wait more than a day or so, they may get stuck in there.
11. To release, twist one-half of bath bomb mold. If it’s not releasing well, grab a spoon and lightly tap one half of the bath bomb mold.
