Bath Bombs

1 c. citric acid (I found in the spice aisle at the local health food store)
1 c. baking soda
1/2 c. cornstarch
1/2 c. of oil (almond, canola, or sunflower)
2-3 drops of essential oil (lavender, peppermint, or any other)
2-3 drops of soap colorant (I just used food coloring)

Mix is up. then put in the essential oil and colorant mix it in.
It will form a soft dough. Put into a mold or roll into balls.
Dry overnight then wrap them in plastic.

These fizz well and are simple.

We put ours in washcloths made to look like ghosts for Halloween. We attached the recipe and the bible verse Matthew 14:26-27.

I found the recipe HERE.


  1. Looks like you have some good recipes here! Someone pointed me to your enchilada casserole. Nice to meet you! :)

  2. Nice to meet you too. You are my first comment from a person I have never met!!! I hope you enjoy some of my recipes.
    Thanks for commenting.

  3. What do you do with the bath bombs?

  4. You throw them in your bath water and they fizz. They make your skin a little softer and make the water smell nice. I think, they are a fun girly gift. Also, Jessica sometimes uses them as a bath time reward because her kids really like them.
