• Spring Flowers Bath Bomb Recipe

We know, making your own homemade bath bombs seems intimidating.  But truly it is soooo easy and it’s such a good way to make customizable gifts for friends and family (and yourself)!  By making them yourself you know there are no scary-sounding chemicals or preservatives in them, and you can mix and match the essential oils and zest/dried flowers to suit your mood.  Try making these as a fun family activity - the kids will love helping and later using them in their baths!
This spring flower bath bomb recipe is one of our favorites and a great place to start your bath bomb making journey.

Here is what you need:

-1 cup baking soda
-1/2 cup corn starch
-1/2 cup citric acid
-3 T orange zest (dried)
-10 drops Neroli
-10 drops Linden Blossom
-10 drops Orange
-5 drops Lavender
-2 T coconut oil
-3/4 t water
-flower petals for decoration (optional: take care not to use too many or your bomb will not hold together)
-mold of choice
-You’ll also need a large mixing bowl, a small bowl, measuring cups and spoons, and a whisk.
First mix the DRY ingredients. In a large bowl combine baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, bath salts, dried orange zest & flower petals. Whisk thoroughly to mix. Set aside.
Next mix the WET ingredients.  In a small bowl combine essential oils, coconut oil, and water. Whisk thoroughly to mix.
Now whisk the wet ingredients from Step 2 into the dry ingredients bowl from Step 1. Mix well until thoroughly combined.
Working quickly, test the mixture to see if it will lightly stick together: Squeeze a small handful of the mixture and if it lightly clumps/sticks together, that is good. Proceed to the next step. If the mixture does not hold together, use a water bottle to spritz the mixture with a tiny bit of water. Whisk the mixture again and test. Repeat until the mixture lightly holds together. **DO NOT add too much water or the mixture will begin to fizz** This means the ingredients have been activated and unfortunately, you may have to start over with all new ingredients.
Once the mixture lightly holds together, press it into the mold. Pack it tightly but do not overfill the mold. If you are using round plastic ornament molds, press each half of the mold together until it closes.
Allow bath bombs to dry at least 6-8 hours or overnight inside the molds. Carefully remove bath bombs from the plastic molds and allow more drying time if they are not fully hardened and dry to the touch.
Enjoy! Don’t forget to share this fun springtime bath bomb recipe with friends and family on your social media.
