Bath bombs are an easy way to transform a regular bath into an aromatic adventure for your senses. Not only do these bath bombs smell AMAZING, the addition of coconut oil makes them extra moisturizing.
I've tried 4 different bath bomb recipes and this one is by far my favorite. The base is from the YouTube channel, "Our Raw Beauty" where I learned that both blending the citric acid and replacing water with more coconut oil makes for a fizzier and more luxurious bath bomb. An added bonus with this recipe is that the bath bombs do not need to sit in the molds overnight before removing.
The coconut oil in these can make for a slippery tub so do use with caution. If you would like a recipe option with less coconut oil look an alternative recipe with less oil and more water like this Gingerbread Bath Bomb
recipe from doTERRA.
Calming & Moisturizing Adaptiv Bath Bomb Recipe
1 cup baking soda
1 cup cornstarch or arrowroot powder
35-40 drops doTERRA Adaptiv essential oil (shop oils)
3 Tbs dried lavender leaves (optional)
Directions: Briefly pulse citric acid in a blender to create a finer powder (optional but creates a less crumbly, sturdy bath bomb). Mix baking soda, cornstarch (or arrowroot), and blended citric acid in a bowl. In a smaller bowl, mix melted coconut oil and essential oil. Mix oil mixture into powdered mixture until well combined. Add optional dried lavender leaves (looks beautiful but needs to be strained from bathwater). Firmly pack mixture into molds. Remove immediately from molds and set on plate to dry for 24 hours before storing. Store in air tight container or wrap in plastic wrap followed by tissue paper for gifting. Drop one bath bomb into bathwater for a relaxing experience. Makes 4-5 bath bombs using these molds.
