Bath bombs recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 1/4 cup epsom salt
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1/4 cup coconut or almond oil
  • 16-20 drops orange essential oil
  • Orange food coloring (optional)
  • Water

Combine baking soda, citric acid, corn starch, epsom salt, and orange zest in a mixing bowl.  Whisk free of lumps.

Melt coconut oil in a small glass bowl in the microwave. Add the orange essential oil and food coloring if desired.

Add the oil mixture to the dry mixture and mix well with your hands. Lightly spritz with water a couple of times to get the mixture to barely hold together. Don’t add too much water.

Press the mixture firmly into molds. I used cute flower molds, but you can use a plastic ornament mold, or even a plastic Easter egg. Let dry for at least 4 hours before carefully removing from molds.

For a rustic look, you can even just roll them into balls by hand. I opted to use a silicone flower shaped mold for mine, and I think they turned out so pretty! Just make sure you press the mixture firmly into whatever mold you use.

  1. Awesome! I will definitely try this :-)

  2. WHERE DO I FIND ORANGE ZEST?

    • I Heart Naptime Reply

      Orange zest is the bright coating of the orange – under that is the the white pith which is bitter, and you do not want that! I like to use a wood rasp to remove the zest from the orange.

  3. Can you tell me where I can buy orange zest for the orange bath bombs?

  4. Bath bombs!!! Great idea, thank you so much! :)

  5. Where can I find citric acid? also is it a liguid or a solid?

    • You can find citric acid in the grocery store, usually next to the canning supplies. I like to order it on Amazon, though, so that I don’t spend too much time looking for it! :)

  6. How many bath bombs do you make with this recipe?
