Homemade Bath Bombs

Makes 4 bath bombs

2 cups baking soda
1/2 cup corn starch
1/2 cup epsom salt
1 cup citric acid (get this online)

1 tbsp. hempseed oil
1 tbsp sunflower oil
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 1/2 tbsp water
15 drops essential oil for fragrance
(you can get all of these ingredients online)


1. Whisk all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Mix this very well.
2. In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients together. The coconut oil will be solid, so microwave it first until it is melted. When you add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mix quickly and thoroughly. Pack in large cupcake holders and let them harden overnight.

Note: You can substitute cocoa butter or shea butter for the hempseed or sunflower, but make sure that you’re using oils that haven’t had anything added to them.

My daughter and I are going to have to try these. She loves bath bombs but they all come packaged in so much plastic!
