Make Your Own Floral Bath Bombs


What you will need

1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup Epsom salts
1/2 cup citric acid
1 tsp water
3 tsp olive oil
10 to 20 drops essential oil
1/2 cup dried flower petals or buds
bath bomb molds
mixing bowls
wax paper


1. Mix It Up

Add dry ingredients to a mixing bowl and whisk until combined. In a small bowl, mix water, olive oil and essential oil. Slowly pour liquid mixture over the dry ingredients and whisk until blended.

2. Mix It More

Test the texture by grabbing a handful and squeezing. If the mix just holds together, it's the right texture. Add the flower petals or buds and thoroughly mix with your hands, until evenly mixed.

3. Fill Your Molds

Fill each side of the bath bomb mold with mixture, pressing firmly. Add a little extra to the top of one mold, then press the two halves together tightly.

4. Remove Your Bath Bombs

Hold the molds firmly together for 10-20 seconds, then slowly pull off the top mold. Gently move the bath bomb into your palm and remove the second mold.

5. Allow to Dry

Place your bath bomb onto a piece of wax paper to dry for 24 hours. Once dry, it's ready for the tub or for gifting!

6. Bombs Away

To use, simply drop the bath bomb into a warm bath. Enjoy as it fizzes and releases minerals, sweet floral fragrance and petals into the water for a luxurious bathing experience.
