Total Time20 minutes
Servings: 5 bath bombs


  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 1 cup citric acid
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 30 drops essential oils


  • Mix together the baking soda and citric acid in a large bowl. 
  • In a separate small bowl mix together the water and 30 drops of your favorite essential oils.
  • Slowly add the liquid mixture to the large mixing bowl with the dry ingredients a few drops at a time. Stir well after each time you add so you don’t add too much water at once. While you are mixing you can add in optional ingredients such as food coloring if you choose to.
  • Keep mixing until the mixture feels like wet sand. Once ingredients are thoroughly mixed pack down the bath bomb mixture into a silicone mold to form a ball shape.
  • Allow them to dry for 12 plus hours before using. To use simply drop the bath bomb into your bath and allow it to dissolve.
