Pink Viva La Juciy Bath Bombs



DIY Bath Bombs

bath bomb ingredients

2 cups baking soda
1 cup corn starch
1 cup epsom salt
1 cup citric acid
1 tsp sodium lauryl sulfoacetate (SLSA)
4 tsp coconut oil
2 tsp witch hazel
1-2 tsp fragrance oil or essential oil (I used Viva la juicy)
food coloring

For the bath bombs first mix all of the dry ingredients except for the citric acid. You want to mix wet and dry ingredients separately and then mix them together and add citric acid. This makes it so the reaction with the baking soda and citric acid doesn't start when you add your wet ingredients.

After everything is mixed you want your mixture to be similar to wet sand and stick together on its own.



Next you want to mold your bath bombs. When I mold my bath bombs I lightly overfill both sides and then push them together. If you want to make sure your bath bomb stays together, you can lightly tap one side of the mold with a spoon, take the mold off, and then check if the bath bomb is still together. After molding your bath bomb, secure your mold with a hair tie.




Let your bath bombs dry in the mold for 24 hours until you remove the molds. When removing the molds, you can lightly tap them with a spoon to help loosen the mold. 

After I took the bath bombs out of the mold I used a small brush and some yellow mica and put some of the powder on the top to add some decoration.
