Fragrant bath bombs make bathing so much more fun and enjoyable. For this project, I used a small muffin pan, lavender pure essential oil for a relaxing effect and some purple food colouring for my desired color. But feel free to get creative! Discover other molds to create floral or heart shapes. Select your favorite pure essential oils for the scent you’re looking for. And add food coloring to give your bath bombs some colour. These Lavender Bath Bombs are also perfect for gift giving like Mother’s Day or for a spa party with your friends!
8 ounces Baking Soda for your skin and the bath water
4 ounces Cream of Tartar
4 ounces Corn Starch
4 ounces Epsom Salts
3/4 tsp. Water
2 tsp. Lavender Essential Oil for scent
2 tsp. Coconut Oil
Food coloring to make purple colored bombs
A mini muffin pan
In a large mixing bowl, mix all dry ingredients: baking soda, cream of tartar, cornstarch, and Epsom salts.
In a separate small bowl, mix all wet ingredients: water, lavender essential oil, coconut oil, and food coloring.
Mix wet and dry ingredients. Your mixture should resemble wet sand. Adding the food coloring helps you figure out if you combined all the ingredients well. An even color means a good mix! When you squeeze some in your fist, it should hold together. If it doesn’t, add water—just a few drops at a time until a desired consistency is reached.
Tightly pack mixture down into your mold.
Let it dry for 24 hours. Do not remove your bath bombs from the mold until the mixture is completely dry.
To make your bath bombs extra special, add dried flowers, non-toxic glitter, and/or sugar cake decorations
