How to make foaming bath bombs
2 Cups Baking Soda
1 Cup Citric Acid
4 teaspoons massage oil ( or 2 teaspoons essential oil and 2 teaspoons olive oil)
Spray bottle with water
mold (60 mm 2 part plastic ball) (I am also thinking the bottoms of two large Easter eggs could be used)
This amount only made 5 bath bombs. If I was making more I would buy the citric acid online in bulk. The small bottle you see pictured (1/2 cup) was $2.50. I purchased it from my local health food store.
Fill one half of your mold. Pack it tightly.
Love this and can’t wait to try this out for Mother’s Day!
Don’t use coconut oil. It is liquid at warm temperatures but solidifies when it cools off and may clog your drain. The essential oil is for aromatherapy. These look great! I can’t wait to try!
How do you store them before you use it? Do you have to keep it in the ball mold?
I found the molds at Michael’s in the Christmas department for ornament crafts.
The mold looks like a DIY tree ornament or some such.

This looks so cool! I am going to try it. 🙂
Could you use coconut oil for the essential oil and olive oil?
Denice Metz says
where did you find the mold?
If you use witch hazel instead of water, it’s less risk of your mixture fizzing. That being said I tried to make these in the middle of July… while there was no water near my mixture, they started reacting to the moisture in the air.
