DIY Essential Oil Bath Bomb Recipe
  1. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl with a whisk
  2. Add almond oil and essential oils and gently mix by hand. If you have sensitive skin, wear gloves during this step. Choose essential oils that are calming such as lavender, vetiver, or cedarwood.*
  3. Once combined, lightly mist with water and mix. Do not add too much water all at once. This step will be done several times until mixture gets to a molding consistency.
  4. Stop when the mixture holds together.
  5. Now time to add some color. Depending on how many colors you wish to use, separate mixture into separate smaller bowls. Start with 5 drops of color, and more as needed.
  6. Spray a little mist again to ensure hold.
  7. Overfill each side of your molds. This is the fun part! Get creative and mix some colors.
  8. Now press your molds together until you hear a click.
  9. Remove from mold and let set overnight before use.
  10. Store in airtight container for up to two weeks.
  11. Now time for a bath! <3

*Some essential oils are hot and would not be suitable for application on the skin like this, such as cinnamon or wintergreen. Others such as lemongrass have a lower dermal limit so you'd want more dilution than 45 drops in 5 T carrier oil. Also remember when using an essential oil that causes photosensitivity you should avoid being outdoors in sunlight for the next day.
