•2 oz. corn starch

•2 oz. citric acid

•2 oz. Epsom salt

•1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons water

•5-10 drops essential oil of choice

•1 1/4 teaspoon oil 

•1-2 drops food coloring

Instructions On How to Mix It All Up?

The process is very simple, there could have been a lot of complicated things that you might have done in your life, but this is in no way near to the word complicated. 

•To begin with the process, you will first have to mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl, and by dry ingredients, we mean baking soda, corn starch, citric acid, and Epsom salt. You don’t just have to mix them, but you will need to whisk them so that if there is any clump, it is removed. 

•Once this is done, set it aside and get a glass jar; in this, you will have to mix all the wet ingredients: water, oil, essential oil, and food coloring. Stir all these wet ingredients together and make sure there is no lump or anything and all the ingredients are perfectly mixed together.

•Once both the mixtures are done mixing, you will then have to pour the liquid mixture into the dry mixture slowly and gently. Remember, the catch is slowly and gently; otherwise, the mixture would start to become fuzzy, and that is not going to be good for making a bath bomb.

•Once both the mixtures are mixed and turned into one fine mixture, they are ready to be shaped into the shape of bath bombs. 

•However, you need to test first if the mixture is actually right to proceed with; for this, you will have to take a part of the mixture in your hand and squeeze it; if it sticks together, then it is ready, but if it breaks down then it needs some alterations. 

•The mixture is ready to be placed into your bath bombs molds, or if you don’t have any, then you can also use any other thing like the Christmas tree ornaments or anything that can be opened in half so that the shape of the bath bombs doesn’t distort in the process of taking them out of their molds. 

•Don’t let the mixture sit into the mold for too long because it will stick to the mold. Once you have let the mixture dry out into its mold and you are sure that it has taken its shape, you can then take it out of the mold and let it dry overnight.  By following the whole recipe properly you can get bath bombs just like the ones made in factories at home.
