Step 1

First, mix the dry ingredients. Put 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/4 cup of Epsom salt, 1/4 cup of cornstarch, and 1/4 cup of citric acid in a bowl. Whisk them all together. Set aside. Next, moving on to the wet ingredients, mix 3 tsp castor oil, 1 tbsp essential oil, some soap coloring (or food coloring), and 1 tbsp of water. Mix them nicely. After this, mix everything. Add the liquid mixture very slowly, just a few at a time, so that it doesn’t activate the solution to the bowl of the dry mixture. Continue whisking until the consistency becomes thick.

Step 2

Get your mold and fill each half with the mixture. Make sure that it is packed in tightly. (Add a capsule to the middle that turns into a sponge animal to surprise your kids after the bath bomb dissolves. This is totally optional.) Put the two sides of the mold together. make sure it snaps. Let them dry overnight. (If you want to use the bath bombs right away, put them in the fridge for about 30 minutes.) Once it dries out, open it up to test it.
