DIY Sleepy Bath Bomb

Ingredients

  1. 2 1/2 tablespoons jojoba oil
  2. 1 1/2 teaspoons rose petal witch hazel
  3. 50 drops lavender essential oil
  4. 30 drops Roman chamomile essential oil
  5. 1 cup baking soda
  6. 1/2 cup citric acid
  7. 1/2 cup fine sea salt
  8. 1/2 cup arrowroot powder
  9. 1 tablespoon spirulina powder
  10. 1 teaspoon lavender buds
  11. 1 teaspoon chamomile buds

Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, mix the jojoba oil, witch hazel, and essential oils.
  2. In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the baking soda, citric acid, sea salt, arrowroot, and spirulina powder. Break up any lumps with your fingers.
  3. Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry and mix with your hands until the liquid is evenly distributed — it should look like wet sand. Use a bath bomb mold or plastic fillable ornament to make the bombs.
  4. Place 1/4 teaspoon of lavender buds into one half of the mold and 1/4 teaspoon of chamomile buds into the other half. Press the mixture firmly into each half of the mold then close the mold. Repeat the process until you have four bath bombs. Transfer the molds into the freezer for 1 hour to set.
  5. Once frozen, remove from the molds and allow them to air-dry overnight before packing them up. Drop into a warm bath and enjoy a restful therapeutic escape.
