Intro: DIY Oatmeal Jasmine Bath Bombs!
The jasmine flower is associated with love and symbolizes beauty and passion, and in some cultures, Jasmine also can represent graciousness and good luck. I highly recommend this bath bomb recipe because soaking in the tub with one can always release stress and anxiety.
- 1 1/4 Cup Baking Soda
- 1/2 Cup Citric Acid
- 1/4 Cup Oatmeal
- 4 tsp Almond Oil
- Water (amount varies)
- 10 - 15 Drops of Jasmine Essential Oil
- One Medium-Sized Bowl
- Bath Bomb Molds
Step 1: Mixing the Dry Ingredients
First, combine the baking soda, citric acid, and oatmeal in the bowl, then sift with a whisk thoroughly until mixed.
Step 2: Adding the Wet Ingredients
Add the almond oil and jasmine essential oil and stir with a spoon. If the mixture is crumbly, then add more oil or a dash of water. Never use too much water at once. The mixture should be the consistency of wet sand, and you should be able to clump it in your hand.
Step 3: Packing the Mixture
Pack the concoction tightly into the silicone molds by scooping amounts of it from a spoon. Demonstrated above, there are lots of different ways to mold your bath bombs. If the mixture is within an enclosed container, about ten minutes later, let it slip out from the mold, then set it out on a sheet of wax paper to dry until it is hard.
