Step 3: Dry Ingredients
Mix together in a big bowl baking soda, citric acid, and Epsom salt.
Step 4: Add the Coconut Oil
In a small bowl put 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and put in microwave for about 15 seconds to melt. Once the coconut oil is done melting carefully add it to the large bowl while gently mixing the ingredients.
Step 5: Add the Liquid Bubble Soap
Put one tablespoon of liquid bubble soap into the same small bowl and using a dropper carefully add it to the rest of the ingredients one drop at a time.

The mixed ingredients should look something like the third picture shown and have a clumpy consistency.
Step 6: Add Essential Oil
Add 1/4 of a teaspoon of essential oil to the large bowl and mix it in with all the other ingredients. Then separate into three medium sized bowls.
