bath bombsMake these Bath ball ( bombs) that fizz in the bath, just like the ones you see in store like Lush. Perfect gift for Christmas or Birthdays. Put the finished bath balls in a clear glass jar, add a ribbon and voilà you have a classy made with love gift.

You will need:

2 tbs. citric acid (you can get this at a pharmacy)
2 tbs. cornstarch
1/4 cup baking soda
3 tbs. coconut oil (or any other emollient oil like almond, avocado or apricot kernel oil)1/4 tsp. fragrance oil
3-6 drops of food coloring (if desired)
Paper candy cups

Directions

Place all of the dry ingredients (first 3) into a bowl and mix well. Place coconut oil into a small glass bowl and add fragrance and food coloring. Slowly add oil mixture into dry ingredients and mix well. Scoop up small amounts of the mixture and shape into 1″ balls. Let the balls rest on a sheet of waxed paper for about 2 to 3 hours, then place each ball into a candy cup to let dry and harden for 24 to 48 hours. Store bombs in a closed, air-tight container. To use, drop 1 to 3 bombs into warm bath water.
