How to make bath bombs at home?
DIY bath bomb
Bath bombs have a therapeutic effect not only on your mind, but also on your body. When submerged in a warm tub, the bath bomb releases citric acid, which loosens the damaged skin layer. It then removes dead cells, softens the new layer and finally evens out the skin tone. Bath bombs also contain carrier oils that help keep your skin smooth. The best way to really know what each ingredient does for you is to make your own DIY bath bomb. However, the process can be a little more difficult than originally thought. But we will break it down for you.
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup epsom salt
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 2 teaspoon Aldrome fragrance oil
- 2 teaspoon coconut oil or baby oil
- A few drops of food colouring.
You will also need:
- Mixing Bowl
- A mould of your choice (round moulds are best)
- Put baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch and epsom salt in a bowl and mix with a whisk until completely mixed.
- Pour base oil, essential oils and food colouring into a small bowl. Mix well and mix the oil and colour as much as possible.
- Slowly add the oil mixture to the dry material one at a time and stir between each addition. Once all the oil has been added, add a few drops of water and whisk again with a whisk (add water, and it will foam, so mix quickly). When holding it in your hand to keep it in shape, make sure the mixture is slightly solidified. Do not get too wet.
If you want to add shells or petals to decorate, drop them at the bottom of the selected shape. Pack the mixture tightly on top and push down to smooth the top with a teaspoon.
Allow the bath bomb to dry in the mould for 2-4 hours, then carefully remove it. Now you're ready to drip into the bath-see the bubbling!
