Materials: tart tray (or any plastic tray like a plastic ornament or silicon mold), mixing bowl, whisk, glass, measuring spoons and cups
Ingredients: 8 oz. baking soda, 4 oz. cornstarch, 4 oz. Epsom salt, 4 tbsp. cream of tartar*, 2 tsp. essential or fragrance oil, 2 tbsp. vegetable oil, 1 or 2 drops food coloring, ¾ tbsp. water
1. Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl: baking soda, cornstarch, Epsom salt, and cream of tarter.
2. Combine wet ingredients in a separate container: fragrance oil, vegetable oil, food coloring, and water.
3. Pour the wet mixture into the dry bowl. Add a little at a time, and stir with a whisk. You want a sandy, grainy consistency. Make sure your mixture is more dry than wet.
4. Once evenly combined, pack mixture into the plastic tray—this will be your mold. Let your bath bombs sit overnight to harden completely before removing from the mold. Alternative Drying Method: Carefully remove the bath bombs from the mold, and place on a metal cooking sheet. Bake the DIY bath bombs 250 degrees for 1 hour.
* Use cream of tarter instead of citric acid as seen in other tutorials. I had a hard time tracking down citric acid at any local store, and this was a great alternative. If you use cream of tarter, there won’t be much fizz when placing the bath bomb in water, but it will still allow for a nice soothing soak.
