Create Your Own Bath Bomb

Why buy bath bombs when you can create your own at home to your liking? Just follow these easy steps to DIY relaxation.


1/2 cup citric acid
1 cup baking soda
3/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup brown sugar
Natural colouring or flowers
10 to 15 drops essential oil(s)
Special equipment: 2-ounce travel-size spray bottle, silicone ice-cube tray, storage jars


  1. Stir together citric acid, baking soda, and cornstarch in a glass measuring cup.
  2. Pass mixture through a fine sieve into a mixing bowl and stir in sugar.
  3. Spritz mixture with water, one spritz at a time. You don't want to pour water into the mixture or it will cause a reaction and will fizz.
  4. Add in your essential oils, one drop at a time, until strength of scent is to your liking. Add flowers or lavender leaves and food colouring if you like.
  5. Place mixture in a silicone ice-cube tray. Use fingers to pack into the mould.
  6. Let dry at room temperature overnight. Pop out of tray gently.
  7. Transfer bath bombs to a jar or bag for safe keeping.
