These fabulously fizzy homemade bath bombs are always a big hit with our Emily. They are so quick and simple to make I often do it with her after work (then pop one in a nice bath before bed!)
Fabulously Fizzy Bath Bombs
- 1 cup Baking Soda
- Citric Acid 1/2 cup
- Epsom salts 1/2 cup
- Cornflour 1/2 cup
- Powdered Natural Food Colouring (we use the liquid soap colourants)
- 2 Tablespoons Coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon water
- 10 drops of favourite Essential oils
- small toy to hide inside (optional but does make them a little fund for random surprise treats.
Full Instructions on these fabulous fizzy bath bombs are here, This was the recipe we started with but over time we have adapted it a little.
Firstly we mix the Baking soda, Citric acid, Epsom salts and cornflour in one bowl.
In another bowl, we add the Coconut oil essential oils and soap colouring (could easily use food colouring). Next, mix the “wet” ingredients together.
Then slowly mix in the dry adding a little extra cornflour should they be a little too wet and adding a dash of Olive oil if a little too dry.
Lastly, we gently pack the bath bombshells ensuring to slightly overfill each half and then push them together compacting the two halves using the slight overfill we had heaped on top. We have found this allows for a more sturdy bomb which is less likely to crumble.
