Fizzy Bath Bombs

A soothing, fizzy treat that can be added to your bath.

Prep Time

5 minutes

Servings

1/2 cup baking soda (125 mL)

1/4 cup cornstarch (60 mL)

3 Tbsp canola oil (45 mL)

1/2 tsp essential or fragrance oil (2 mL)

4-6 drops food colouring 

water in a spray bottle

1/4 cup citric acid (60 mL)

mould for shaping bombs

Mix the baking soda and cornstarch together. Add the canola oil, the drops of food colouring and the essential/fragrance oil. 

Using a spray bottle, mist the mixture lightly one time. Mix well until there are no lumps and the color is well blended. Add the citric acid. 

Heap as much of the mixture as possible into a mould. Press down very firmly packing the mixture well. Do not add more mixture to the mould after firmly packing it as it will not create a cohesive bath bomb. Let the bath bomb air dry for 1-2 days on a baking rack. 

Note: Use lavender essential oil as well as 1/2 tsp (2mL) of dried lavender blossoms. Add the lavender blossoms when mixing the baking soda and cornstarch together.
