What You Will Need

  • cup Epsom Salt
  • cup corn starch
  • cup baking soda
  • cup citric acid
  • lavender essential oil
  • Water
  • 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.
