DIY Bath Bombs

A fun experiment using household items!


  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salts
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 2 teaspoon essential oil
  • 3 teaspoon olive oil
  • Food coloring (any color)
  • Bowl
  • Whisk
  • Jar
  • Bath bomb mold


  1. Place all of the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well with a whisk.
  2. In a separate bowl or container, gather all of your liquid ingredients in. (+ the essential oils, fragrances, colors, etc.)
  3. Slowly add the liquid mixture into the dry mixture, one small spoon at a time.
  4. When the mixture is now well mixed, pack this mixture into a bath bomb mold and pack tightly, then let it dry. Work quickly on this step so the bath bomb doesn't dry out too much!
