Pineapple 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 (Optional)
4 tsp coconut oil
2 tsp witch hazel
1-2 tsp fragrance oil or essential oil (I used Iced Pineapple)

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 then, 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. I used two molds for this so that I could have a hole at the top to put my bubble bar frosting in. My large mold is a 70 mm mold I found on amazon. I also got my small molds on amazon but I cut the edge off so they would fit in the bigger molds.

Let your bath bombs dry in the mold for 24 hours until you remove the molds. You can lightly tap the mold with a spoon to lossen the mold. 

Now its time to make the frosting. I used a kitchen aid to mix all of these ingredients but you could also use a hand mixer.

Bubble Bar pineapple tops:
1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 cup SLSA
1/4 cup corn starch
1/2 cup liquid glycerin
1 tbsp oil

Mix all of the ingredients together. You might need to add more glycerin depending on how thick you want your frosting to be. Then mold your bubble bar dough into the pineapple stems and place them in the holes. let dry for 24 hours or until your bubble bars are dry.
