DIY : Bath Bombs 

  • Published on February 22, 2017

    Cosmetology student Collin Hilgenberg goes LIVE on Facebook at La’ James International College in Des Moines to show everyone how to make their very own Bath Bombs

    What You Need:

    • 1 cup baking soda
    • ½ cup epsom salt
    • ½ cup citric acid
    • 1 tsp water
    • 3 tsp olive oil
    • 2 tsp essential oils
    • Soap Food coloring 

    Step 1: First mix your dry ingredients: baking soda, epsom salt & citric acid.

    Step 2: Next mix your liquid ingredients: water, olive oil, essentials oils (Collin used a combination of Rosemary, Lavender & Lemongrass) & lastly soap food coloring. Make sure to use a soap coloring and not your typical cooking coloring to avoid any staining.

    Step 3: Very sparingly add a small amount of the liquid into your dry ingredients. This will fizzle but remember to only add a small amount. Too much will turn your bath bomb into a bath sludge. Baking soda and citric acid does produce a smell, don’t be alarmed!

    Step 4: Slowly continue to mix, using a fork or whisk. Once all the ingredients are combined, continue mixing with your hands. Next begging to form a bath bomb.

    Step 5: Choose a mold, we used easter eggs. Place the mixture into the mold for about 30 seconds. Then remove and let the bath bomb set for at least 24 hours before use.

    Thank you Collin for the great tips!!!
