bath bombs with eucalyptus essential oil that can help relive cold symptoms
- Sieve the baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salt and cornstarch into a bowl and whisk together.
- Mix the sweet almond oil with the eucalyptus essential oil and add to the dry ingredients. Combine thoroughly.
- Spray the witch hazel onto the mixture. Use one hand to spray and the other to mix everything together. The bath bomb mixture should resemble crumbly sand and not be too wet. If it holds its shape when you press it between your hands, you’ve added enough witch hazel.
- Divide the mixture evenly between two bowls. Dye one with green soap color.
- Fill one half of the mold with the green mixture and the other half with the white.
- Overfill both halves and firmly press together. Hold for a few seconds.
- Let the bath bombs harden overnight in the molds. To demold, gently tap the top half with a spoon and remove the mold. Don’t twist as breaks the bath bombs. Then tap the bottom half and remove as well.
- Let your bath bombs air dry for 24-48h until they have completely hardened. Store in an airtight container away from sunlight and moisture.
