Essential Oil Hack: How to make your new favorite bath bombs

There's something inherently calming about self-care rituals, and one of my absolute favorites is a luxurious bath with a homemade bath bomb. Infused with essential oils, these fizzy delights are a game-changer for your bath routine. If you're like me and love a good DIY, you'll enjoy making your own. It's simpler than you might think! Also, If you're a fan of visuals, you'll love the video tutorial we've put together here, but if you're up for a read, keep scrolling!

Step 1: Prepare the Dry Ingredients

To start off, I prepared my dry ingredients. I sifted together baking soda, cornstarch, Epsom salt, and citric acid. This blend forms the backbone of the bath bomb, with the citric acid providing the fizziness we all love.

Step 2: Add the Moisture and Color

Once my dry ingredients were thoroughly mixed, it was time to add some moisture. I opted for unrefined coconut oil for its hydrating properties, and also because it helps to bind the mixture together. To this, I added Mica powder for a touch of color.

Step 3: Infuse with Essential Oils

But what is a bath bomb without its signature scent? To imbue my bath bomb with an aromatic experience, I dropped in 20 drops of my favorite Supernatural essential oil. This is where you can really customize your bath bomb to suit your mood. Want to feel refreshed and revitalized? Go for a citrusy scent. Looking for relaxation? Lavender might be your best bet.

Step 4: Fill the Mold

With all the ingredients combined, it was time to shape the bath bomb. I carefully filled my sphere mold halfway, gave it a quick spray with water, and then filled it the rest of the way. It's important not to add too much water at once, as this can prematurely trigger the fizziness. A little spritz is all you need.

Step 5: Join the Halves

To create the spherical shape of the bath bomb, I took the second half of the mold and filled it in the same way. I sprayed a little more water on the surface and then pressed the two halves together firmly.

Step 6: Release and Admire 

Finally, I gently released the bath bomb from the mold. I must say, the end result was magical. I was left with a beautifully colored and scented bath bomb, ready to transform my bath into a spa-like experience.

I can't wait to use them, and I believe that you too will feel the same joy when you make and use your own essential oil-infused bath bomb. Happy DIY-ing!
