(“Magnesium helps keep your body healthy and regulates blood sugar levels, blood pressure and muscle and nerve function, according to the National Institutes of Health. Doctors have warned, however, that a growing number of people have magnesium deficiencies.”- Epsom Salt Counsel Website)
3 tbsp. Epsom salt
1/2 cup baking soda
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup citric acid
1 tbsp coconut oil
spraying bottle with witch hazel
liquid food or soap coloring
Eternal Essence fragrance oils
Bath Bomb molds
Divide the Epsom salt between two bowls. Add one drop of food coloring to each bowl and stir. Let the salts sit while they soak up the dye.
Combine the baking soda, cornstarch and citric acid in a large mixing bowl. Whisk together with a spoon. Add a few drops of fragrance oil while you keep stirring.
Add the coconut oil to your dry mixture. Mix all the ingredients together and make sure to smooth out all the lumps.
Take a handful of mixture and squeeze it in the palm of your hand. Spray the mixture with some witch hazel until it clumps together. Stir well between each spritz.
Add the colored salts to the batch and carefully mix together. You can put a few salts at the bottom of your mold. Press the mixture down firmly as you fill your mold. Let it sit for a few hours and carefully take the bath bomb out of its mold.
