DIY Easy Lavender + Cedarwood Bath Bombs
Author: Rebecca LeVander
  • 1 Cup baking soda
  • 1/2 Cup epsom salt
  • 1/2 Cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 Cup citric acid
  • 1 tsp almond oil
  • 2 T. coconut oil
  • essential oils optional
  • plant-based food coloring
  1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Divide this mixture up into 2 smaller bowls.
  3. Melt 1 T. coconut oil in each of 2 mugs in the microwave.
  4. Add 1/2 tsp. almond oil to each mug.
  5. Add 5 drops of natural food coloring to each mug.
  6. Add 20 drops of essential oils to each mug. I added 20 drops of lavender in one mug and 20 drops of cedarwood in the other mug.
  7. Stir the liquid mixture.
  8. Pour one coconut oil mixture into each of the bowls with the dry ingredients and stir well.
  9. Push the powder into the molds. I added it randomly to get a marbled effect.
  10. Push the two halves of the mold together.
  11. Then set them in your freezer for about 15 minutes to let the coconut oil harden.
  12. Take them out of the freezer and let them warm up slightly to remove them from the mold. I've had them come in half every once in awhile, and when that happens, I melt more coconut oil and pour it between the halves, add a little of the bath bomb mixture if I have it, and press them together again.
  13. Then I put them back in the freezer for 15 minutes and they come out perfectly.
Recipe Notes

This makes about 3 large and 1 medium bath bombs.
Experiment with different essential oil combinations and different colors.
Let them cure for 48 hours before packaging or using.
