Easiest Bath Bomb Recipe Ever! Use a mooncake mold to make it even easier! Before3pm.com

The blogosphere is already inundated with bath bomb recipes.

BUT, you will never find an easier or more fun way to make bath bombs than what I’ll show you here.

What makes my version so easy?

It uses already scented and moisturizing epsom salts.  No need for additional coconut oil, essential oils, etc…  (I am a huge fan of Dr. Teal’s products.  You can read about some of my favorites here.)

Also, because I use a mooncake mold to create them, you are not limited in how many you can make at once.  If you use silicone molds, you can only make as many as there are molds (at least at one time).

All of the ingredients can easily be purchased at your local Walmart. (or online):

From the Baking Aisle:

  • Baking Soda (small box is sufficient)
  • Cornstarch (small container is sufficient)

From the Canning Aisle (where they sell the canning jars, pectin, etc)  I purchased mine online, which is why it is in a bag.

  • Citric Acid (you will only need about 3.5 ounces or 1/2 cup)

From the Health and Beauty Area:

  • Any scent Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salts (I LOVE the Super Moisturizing Avocado Oil one – it smells a little like juicy fruit gum)

Misc.:

  • Spray Bottle

 

Simply whisk all of your ingredients in the following amounts:

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 1/2 cup scented epsom salts
  • 1/2 cup citric acid

After everything is whisked together, you will need to fill a spray bottle with water.  Mist the surface of your mixture and stir.

Continue misting and whisking until the powder BARELY starts to get wet.  As a matter of fact, it is not really going to feel wet, but it will feel “cold” to the touch.  The goal is to add just enough water so that the mixture will stick together, but not enough to actually activate the fizzing!

It is ready when you take some of the mixture between your fingers and when you press down, it sticks together.

You can add food coloring if you would like, but I like to keep it as simple as possible and also, I don’t like to risk staining my bathtub!
