					8 ounces Baking Soda (about 1 cup)
4 ounces Citric Acid (1/2 cup)
1/2 cup (4 ounces) Sea Salt or Epsom Salt
4 ounces Cornstarch (about 3/4 cup)
2 tablespoons oil of choice (this is my personal favorite but any liquid oil will work)
2 teaspoons witch hazel (or water) plus a little more if needed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or more water)
30-40 drops of Essential oils or powdered dried herbs (ginger is great)


Combine dry ingredients (baking soda, salt, citric acid, and cornstarch) in a large bowl and mix well until combined.
In a small bowl, combine the oil, witch hazel and vanilla extract and stir well. Add essential oils if using.
Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients a few drops at a time. Mix well with hands (wear gloves if you have sensitive skin). Add powdered dried herbs if using.
Mixture should hold together when squeezed without crumbling. You may need to add slightly more witch hazel if it hasn’t achieved this consistency yet. I recommend using a spray bottle with additional liquid to evenly add.
Quickly push mixture into molds, greased muffin tins or any other greased container. Press in firmly and leave at least 24 hours (48 is better) or until hardened. It will expand some and this is normal. You can push it down into the mold several times while it is drying to keep it from expanding to much. Using the metal molds will create a stronger and more effective final bath bomb.
When dry, remove and store in air tight container or bag. Use within 2 weeks.

					Citric Acid Baking Soda And Essential Oils ! The baking soda alone will just crumble the citric acid helps it to harden and fizz and you can find citric acid in stores like Walmart in the baking section

					1 C baking soda
1/2 C citric acid
Colorant
Essential oil
91% alcohol or witch hazel
Spray bottle

Mix the first 2 ingredients together well with your hands or a whisk, making sure to smash any lumps.  Add your color and essential oil as you’re mixing.
Spray alcohol or witch hazel, 5 sprays at a time, mixing after each 5 sprays.
When your mixture is the consistency of damp (not wet) sand, you are ready to put them in your molds.  Lightly pack them in the molds.  Do not smash them into the molds as they will crack.  
Remove from molds and place on a very soft surface.

*you may want to leave the bombs in one half of the mold as it dries and turn them over every 10 minutes.

*this should make 2 bath bombs, depending on the size you decide to make each one.
