1. DIY Bath Bomb Recipe (via Tom's of Maine):
If you want to know exactly what is being used in your bath bombs, try this DIY recipe, which includes natural ingredients and essential oils.
Gather two mixing bowls, one fork, candy or ice club molds in the shape of spheres, baking soda, beetroot powder, citric acid, cornstarch, Epsom salt, and dried flower petals.
In the first bowl, mix 1/2 cup baking soda, 1 tablespoon beetroot powder, 1/4 cup citric acid, 1/4 cup cornstarch, 1/4 cup Epsom salt, and dried flower petals. Then, in the second bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of plant-based oils of your choice and 1 tablespoon of essential oils of your choice.
Mix the dry ingredients with the liquid ingredients, and note, if the batter looks crumbly, add a little extra oil and stir with a fork.
Next, fill your molds with the pink mixture and refrigerate the bath bombs for one hour until firm. Now, your bath bombs are ready to use.
