Step 1: Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

2 Cups Baking Soda

1 Cup Corn Starch

1 Cup Citric Acid

1 Cup Epsom Salt

Wet Ingredients

4 Tablespoons Water

6 Tablespoons Coconut Oil

20 Drops Food Coloring (Red and Green)

20 Drops Essential Oil (Peppermint and Fir Needle)

The ingredients listed make six bath bombs for a full tray like the one i made you will need to double this. I would recommend using two different bowls and keeping them operate so you can make an even amount of green and pink.

Step 2: Mix Ingredients

Mix the dry and the wet ingredients separate. You will wan to introduce the wet ingredients slowly as you continuously stir. This helps prevent premature activation. If you see the dry ingredients fizzing stop adding dry liquid and stir util the fizzing stops. You will want to stir all of the liquid into the dry mixture until it feels like wet sand and can be hold shape when pressed.

Step 3: Set Into Tray

Place the mixture into your square mold and pack in down with the palm of your hand or a spoon. Make sure you are evenly distributing the mixture. Once you have them formed it should look like the second picture. You will leave them to dry over night roughly five hours.Tap the pan on a hard surface until they release.

Step 4: Decorate

Once they are removed you will cut a piece of twine 2' 1/4" and tie it around each one. The idea was to make them look like small gifts. I really hope you enjoy these.

    No I recommend a metal muffin tin. I picked one up at Micheal’s on sale made for square brownies. I don’t recommend plastic or rubber molds because it will morph the shape of the bomb. I hope this helps if you have any other question let me know.

    Good idea for a last minute minute present. I even have all the materials on hand. So I don't have to go out on Christmas Eve.

    They smell great too. The only thing I haven’t accomplished is getting them to float as they fizz.
