Who wouldn’t love a Caribbean Escape in the middle of Winter? The closest we can offer is a soak in an evening bath of Caribbean Aroma to sooth your mind, body and soul and transport you to summer. We have a recipe that will give you that, Caribbean Escape Bath Bombs. Our Caribbean Escape Fragrance Oil is a sweet fruity fig type with top notes of grapefruit, pear, pineapple, and melon, middle notes of jasmine, gardenia, peach and coconut, with a sugary powdery raspberry and vanilla base note.
- Clear 60mm Round Ornaments (to use as a bath bomb mold) Note: You can use muffin pans as bath bomb molds. silicone mini muffin pan.
- Citric Acid (link to the 5 lb bag of Citric Acid I bought on Amazon)
- Baking Soda
- Epsom Salt
- Corn Starch
- Coconut Oil
- Caribbean Escape Fragrance Oil
You’ll also need a large mixing bowl, a small bowl, measuring cups and spoons, and a whisk. Once you have gathered the ingredients, you are ready to get started on your Caribbean Escape Bath Bombs!
Mix the DRY ingredients. In a large bowl, combine: Baking Soda, Citric Acid, Cornstarch, and Epsom Salts. Whisk thoroughly to mix. Set aside.
Mix the WET ingredients. In a small bowl, combine the wet ingredients: Coconut Oil (melted), Water, and Fragrance Oil. Stir to mix.
Whisk the wet ingredients from Step 2 into the dry ingredients bowl from Step 1. Mix well until thoroughly combined.
Working quickly, test the mixture to see if it will lightly stick together: Squeeze a small handful of the mixture and if it lightly clumps/sticks together, that is good. Proceed to the next step. If the mixture does not hold together, use a water bottle to spritz the mixture with a tiny bit of water, whisk the mixture again and test. Repeat until the mixture lightly holds together. *DO NOT add too much water or the mixture will begin to fizz. This means the ingredients have been activated and unfortunately, you may have to start over with all new ingredients.
Once the mixture lightly holds together, press it into the mold. Pack it tightly, but do not overfill the mold. If you are using round plastic ornament molds, press each half of the mold together until it closes.
Allow bath bombs to dry at least 6-8 hours or overnight inside the molds. Carefully remove bath bombs from the plastic molds and allow more drying time if they are not fully hardened and dry to the touch.
