Easy Both Bombs

Ingredients: 
  •  1 cup of baking soda
     
  • 1/4 cup of cream of tartar
           
  • 1/2 cup of cornstarch
           
  • 1/2 cup of salt (Epsom salts, sea salt, or non-iodized table salt)
           
  • 2 teaspoons of essential oil
           
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon of oil (vegetable oil, sweet almond oil, coconut oil, or olive oil)
           
  • Optional: 1 to 2 drops of food coloring
Directions: 
  1. Add the Dry Ingredients to a Glass or Metal Bowl It's time to mix.

  2. Place 1 cup of baking soda, ¼ cup of cream of tartar, ½ cup of cornstarch and ½ cup of salt into a glass or metal bowl. Don't use a plastic bowl or aluminum bowl as oils can often react to the mixture and not be effective. Whisk the dry ingredients together.

  3. Add Oils and Food Coloring (and scents) In a separate bowl, mix 2 teaspoons of essential oil and one tablespoon of oil.

  4. Add one to two drops of food coloring and stir everything together. Next, add that to your dry mixture from step two. Add slowly while mixing in the oils with the dry ingredients. If desired, this is the time to also add scents. I love peppermint, cinnamon and other scents.

  5. Fill Mold with Mixture. Grab a mold to place your mixture in. If you don't have a sphere mold, find an empty ice cube tray or any other shaped mold around your home.

  6. Using a spray bottle, spritz the mixture as you add it to the mold to help compact it into a shape. Once this is done, let the mold set for a few hours. Ideally, this works best if left overnight to allow the ingredients to settle and harden together. Remove DIY Bath Bomb and Enjoy After letting your mold settle, it is ready to use.
