Clove bath bombs

Let's continue the adventure with bath bombs. This recipe is more compact as it contains more liquid compared to my previous recipes.
With a lovely spicy aroma of cloves, do you think you can resist using them with your next bath?

  • 1 cup sodium bicarbonate
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salt
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 10 drops of clove essential oil
  • green and yellow food colorant

  1. Mix the sodium bicarbonate, salt, cornstarch, citric acid in a bowl.
  2. Separately mix the liquids: coconut oil, olive oil and the essential oil.
  3. Add slowly the liquids into the dried ingredients and mix by hand. The texture should be like a wet sand.
  4. Separate the mixture into 2 bowls and add the colorant. Mix well the color in each bowl.
  5. Put alternative colored layers into some molds. For these bath bombs I used my daughter's plastic cup toys. Press the layers well. Let them dry overnight.
  6. The next day, take them out of the molds using a bit of shake.
