How Can Baking Soda Benefit Your Beauty Routine: Get Glowing Skin, DIY Manicure/Pedicure Treatment, Brighten Teeth, Deep-Clean Hair
Indie Lee has created a holiday-themed bath bomb recipe, which makes for a great hostess gift or stocking stuffer. The secret ingredients to the all-natural recipe are baking soda and citric acid, which will make the bombs fizz up like a glass of champagne once you drop them in the bathtub!
1 c. baking soda
½ c. citric acid
2 tbsp. jojoba oil
5 drops of peppermint essential oil
5 drops of eucalyptus essential oil
5 drops of lemon essential oil
1 tbsp. witch hazel
1. Before you start the DIY, make sure you have a fun holiday mold or tin to shape your bombs in. You could also use cookie cutters and parchment paper.
2. Combine baking soda and citric acid in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle in jojoba oil, followed by essential oils. Mix well until you have a smooth mixture.
3. Slowly drizzle witch hazel into the mixture, constantly stirring to stop the ingredients from fizzing.
4. Once all of the ingredients are moist enough to clump together, firmly press the mixture into your molds.
5. Allow the bombs to dry for 3-4 hours before removing them from the molds.
Recipe will make 6-10 bath bombs, depending on size of mold.
6. Add 1-2 bath bombs to a warm bath and enjoy! Use within three months. Store in an airtight container.
