Rainbow Bath Bombs

What you need for 4 Bath Bombs...

  • 1 cup of Bi-Carb Soda
  • 1/2 cup Cornflour
  • 1/2 Citric Acid
  • 1/2 Epsom Salt
  • 5 Tablespoons melted Coconut oil
  • 4 teaspoons fragrance oil 
  • A few drops of food colouring
  • Water, depending on how dry the mixture is you may or may not need a teaspoon or so of water to help the dampen the mixture for binding.
  • A plastic mould
  • Disposable gloves

How you do it...

  • Put gloves on!!
  • Whisk together the bi-carb soda, cornflour, citric acid and epsom salt in a medium bowl, then divide the mix equally into 3 separate bowls 
  • Mix to together the coconut oil and your chosen fragrance, then divide equity into three separate bowl, colour each oil mix a different colour, I chose blue, pink and yellow.
  • Slowly add one bowl of the wet mixture into one bowl of dry mix.  It is is important to do this slowly and to only add small amounts at a time so you don't cause the bi-carb and citric acid to fizz up, you want to save that reaction for the bath! After each time you add in some oil use you hands to mix it around.                                         
  • Once all the oil is added in you should have a mixture with the consistency of damp sand, and it should hold it's shape when you squeeze it together, if it doesn't feel right slowly add in some water or extra coconut oil until you feel it is right.
  • Take one side of the plastic mould and half fill it with the blue, then over fill the rest of the container with pink, take the other side of the mould and half fill it with the yellow and then over fill the rest with pink.  It's a good idea to over fill a bit so when you push the moulds together the bath bomb will compact.
  • Close the mould by pressing it firmly together and leave it to set in the mould for an hour
  • Carefully remove the mould case by gently tapping on one side, place the bombs on a plate or tray for 24 hours to completely dry out and turn rock hard, then they are ready to enjoy relaxing bath.
