As a kid did you ever mix vinegar and baking soda and watch it bubble and fizz? Well, that is the start of a bath bomb. A bath bomb is a hard-packed mixture of dry ingredients which dissolve when wet. You know how on instagram and youtube people make homemade bath bombs and they turn out very cool? Well, you can make them too! These are some of the key ingredients in most bath bombs:

Dry ingredients
Baking soda
Citric acid
Corn starch
Epsom salt

Wet ingredients
Castor oil
Essential oil ( optional)
Water

After you have all of you dry ingredients, mix them thoroughly in a big bowl. Once you mixed all the dry ingredients together, take a separate bowl and mix all the wet ingredients together. After both kinds of ingredients are thoroughly mixed separately, then slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry mixture. Once they are all mixed together put them into a mold of any shape. If you don’t have any molds, you can find them at AC Moore.

The castor oil is used to moisturize the skin. The essential oil is used to create a smell and relaxing environment. The citric acid and baking soda create the reaction and cause the fizzing. The epsom salt is used to soothe muscles. A color is added sometimes as more of a marketing tactic to match the scent. Bathbombs sell for anywhere from $2-8 at drugstores to high end stores such as Lush.

I attempted to make my own bathbombs at home but I could not find some of the ingredients so I got a kit from AC moore. The kit was $8 and should have made 4 bombs. The kit did not turn out perfect. The bombs failed to harden. I am going to continue my quest to make more bath bombs after some more research and shopping for ingredients.
