Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)
  • ½ cup citric acid (sifted or finely ground)
  • ½ cup corn starch
  • dry herbs or flowers (optional)
  • colorant (optional), iron oxides, FD&C colors or mica powders

Wet Ingredients:

  • 2 ½ tablespoons sweet almond oil
  • ¾ tablespoon water
  • ¼ – 1 teaspoon of essential or fragrance oil
  • 3-dimensional mold or deep dish style molds
  • squirt bottle with witch hazel or water

Mix all the dry ingredients together and set aside. Mix the wet ingredients in an old jar with a lid so they can be shaken well. Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix with your hands. The citric acid my start to fizz, so pour slowly and work the liquid in as you go. The mixture should be damp enough to hold together. If needed, mist with witch hazel or water. Work fast to press the mixture into the molds. If you’re using a 2-part sphere, fill each side and then press together. Let bombs dry in the mold for a few minutes. Larger spheres may need more drying time. Remove from mold and let dry for 1 day before use. Cover with tissue paper or cello bag and store in a dry place.
