As much as I love the home-based products I use daily, this is still one of my favorite DIY projects I’ve done with my Young Living oils


  • 8 ounces Baking Soda
  • 4 ounces Citric Acid
  • 4 ounces Corn Starch
  • 4 ounces Epsom Salts
  • 3/4 tsp. Water
  • 2 tsp. liquid carrier oil like jojoba, almond, etc.

Food coloring if desired (optional)

Plastic or silicone mold (I used plastic Christmas ornaments – 99 cents from the craft store but you can use any shape you like, such as a silicone cupcake tray)

Combine everything EXCLUDING the citric acid in a glass or metal bowl. When you’re sure it’s mixed well, add the citric acid and mix again. The combination should still look dry, like breadcrumbs, and feel like soap flakes. It will hold together when you squeeze it.To know more about bath bombs you can Contact us via

Pack the mix into your mold. If you’re using the plastic ball ornaments, overfill one side before you snap the halves together.

Twist the halves of the mold apart to eliminate your bath bomb. It should come out effortlessly and hold the shape.

Let your finished bath bomb dry for at least 24 hours before you use it. Enjoy!

If you set your bath bomb aside and it starts to lose the shape, then it’s too wet. Smash it back in the bowl and add a little more Epsom salt and cornstarch.

If your bath bomb smashes when you try to take it out of the mold, it’s too dry. You can spray it with some more water and try again. If your mixture starts to fizz, don’t panic!
