Use this quick and easy bath bomb recipe to make fun star-shaped patriotic red, white, and blue bath bombs! These homemade bath bombs make a great gift idea.
Makes 1 bomb
- ⅛ cup Epsom Salt
- ⅛ cup corn starch
- ⅛ cup baking soda
- ⅛ cup citric acid
- lavender essential oil
- Food coloring
- star-shaped molds
Mix the first four ingredients well.
Add 5 – 10 drops essential oil. I used lavender but you can use the scent of your choice.
Add just a little bit of water (this needs to be done a few drops at a time). It will bubble and react with the citric acid but this is okay.
Add food coloring one drop at a time until you are happy with the color.
Continue adding water slowly until the mixture holds together well but is not too wet.
Pack into the mold tightly so it takes on the mold shape.
Refrigerate for one hour.
Remove from mold.
Allow to air dry a day or two before packaging for gift giving.
