Prep Time 0 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 1 day 15 minutes
Servings 9 muffins style bombs

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 1/2 cup Epsom Salt
  • 3/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 tbs Almond Oil
  • 3 teaspoons Witch Hazel
  • 1/2 teaspoon green mica powder
  • 10 drops lavender essential oil
  • 10 drops peppermint essential oil
  • Small spray bottle with water

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients and mix well. Make sure there are no clumps.
  2. In a small glass bowl, combine the almond oil, essential oils and witch hazel. Whisk.
  3. Pour the liquid mixture into the large bowl, it will fizz once the liquid touches it.
  4. Begin mixing using a fork (or your hands) until everything looks combined and somewhat moist.
  5. Prep your silicone molds and use a spoon to fill the molds halfway. Using a silicone spatula, press the mixture into the molds firmly. Spray each mold with a small bit of water (one spray) and press down again to make sure they're firm.
  6. Using too much water will cause the bombs to lose their fizz. If you don't press down firmly, the bombs will not hold together.
  7. Divide the rest of the mixture into the molds and again press down firmly. Spray the top with water and press down again.
  8. Let sit on the counter for twenty four hours to set before removing from molds.

Recipe Notes

Tip: use anywhere from 1/8-1/2 teaspoon of mica powder keeping in mind that the more you use the more saturated the water will be with color. Mica powder does leave a ring in the tub.
