Rainbow Surprise Bath Bomb Ingredients
- 1 cup Citric acid
- 1 cup Cornstarch
- ½ cup Epsom Salts
- 2 T. Coconut Oil
- 15 drops Lavender Essential Oil
- Water in a fine mist spray bottle
You will also need:
- A bowl
- A mold or container to use as a mold
- Small toys or other objects to put inside
Bath Bomb Directions
In a large bowl combine citric acid, corn starch, Epsom salts, coconut oil, and lavender essential oil and stir until very well mixed.
Divide your mixture evenly among bowls, depending on how many colors you choose to do. Slowly add a few drops of colorant to each, stirring frequently, until the desired color is reached. This 3 pack of colors are great for making your rainbow bath bomb, just mix colors to make purple, green, and orange.
Spray each one with one or two spritzes of water, stir and mix with your hands until the mixture just stays together when squeezed. Be careful not to overwet it, or it will activate and start to fizz.
Begin layering colors in your mold, pressing firmly each time and fill halfway- these little plastic containers came from Dollar Tree 8 to a pack and are the perfect size for kid bath bombs but you can also grab molds with any shape you like.
Place your small toy firmly in the layers and then continue layering until it is covered up completely.
Let your fizzy bath bomb dry for 3 to 4 hours or even overnight.
Gently remove from your mold and store in a dry spot.
To use: Add one or two to a warm bathtub and watch the fizzy fun as the secret toy hidden inside bubbles out!
These rainbow surprise bath bombs can be packaged and made into gifts for others.
