DIY Bath Bomb Fizzies
Are you ready for some DIY papering? Well, these easy peasy DIY Bath Bombs will do the trick! After spending all day out in the garden, there is nothing better than a nice relaxing bath to sooth sore muscles and give my skin some extra moisture. And, just like the res of the DIY beauty products I have featured, they are completely customizable. I am on a lemongrass kick lately, but what ever essential oil you have or like will do the trick just fine.
1 Cups Citric Acid
2 Cups Baking Soda
1 oz shea butter or coconut butter (melted)
5-6 drops Essential Oil
Mica Colorant (optional, food coloring can be used also)
Spray bottle of Witch Hazel
*If you have a manicure, wear gloves, or use a fork during the mixing process because the baking soda is abrasive so it will remove polish.
In a mixing bowl combine citric acid and baking soda, being sure to remove all lumps.
Add in colorant, melted butter and essential oil and continue to mix.
Using your spray bottle, spray the mixture 2-3 times and mix, slowly adding more witch hazel until the mixture holds it shaped when pressed together.
Press into silicone molds, making sure to compact them tightly.
Allow to dry in silicon molds for 12 hours. Once 12 hours is up, remove from molds, and allow to dry an additional 24 hours for a nice hard bath bomb.
