I LOVE Essential Oils
I love to soak in the tub with a great bath bomb. Maybe it is just me, but I really feel like the fizzing action of the bath bomb.
I have combined skin safe and softening ingredients like coconut oil and essential oils creates an irresistible invitation to soak your stresses away.

A Multitude Of Uses
Lime oil is good for your skin, it is rich in antioxidants, can help lighten dark spots, and acts as a natural insect repellent.

Steps 1-4: In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, citric acid, and cornstarch. Whisk dry ingredients together.
Step 5: *Add the polysorbate 80 (In the in-process photos, I added this into the coconut oil bowl.) This helps the coconut oil disperse more evenly in your bath water, makes the bath bombs bubbly.
It also prevents the mica from sticking to the side of the tub. The coconut oil binds all the ingredients together, so you bath bombs don’t crumble when you touch them!
Steps 7-10: Add the pomegranate scented oil and the lime essential oil. Mix the ingredients together. I use my hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is really mixed in there.
The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand. Separate mixture into two bowls.
Steps 11-13: Add 1 tablespoon of the Fuchsia mica and Fuchsia/dark pink cosmetic glitter into one of the small bowls and mix well. Add a bit more color if the mixture is too light. Continue to add a bit and mix until you get the color you want.
Steps 14-16: Add the lime green mica powder and lime green cosmetic glitter into the 2nd small bowl. Mix colors into mixture thoroughly. Add a bit more color if the mixture is too light. Continue to add a bit and mix until you get the color you want.
Steps 17-18: Add about 1/2 tablespoon of your fuchsia mixture into one side of the mold and the same with the green. Continue to layer until both sides of the mold are overfull. Press both sides of the mold together firmly, grinding together to get rid of the excess mixture.
Drying Is Key To Bath Bomb Success
Steps 19-20: Tap both sides of the mold and gently release the bomb. Allow to dry a minimum of 24 hours. If your climate is wet or cold, allow an additional 24 hours. My rule of thumb is that when it is hard to the touch, they are ready for the tub! Store in an airtight container until ready for use.
Make a few batches of these to share with a friend this summer, they will thank you for the invitation to relax a little!
