DIY Moringa Bath Bomb

Bath bombs are a fun way to switch up your morning routine or a cute DIY gift for your friends. Either way, get your own custom bath bomb by making them yourself!

Here’s how...

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • 1 cup of Baking Soda
  • ½ cup of Citric Acid
  • ½  cup of Epsom Salts
  • 1 teaspoon of water
  • 2 teaspoons of Lavender oil
  • 3 teaspoons of Moringa oil
  • food coloring

Tools you’ll need:

  • 2 bowls
  • whisk
  • bath bomb mold
  • two teaspoons

Step One

Put all of the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix them together with your whisk. The Baking Soda and Citric Acid is what causes the bubbles the bath bombs create when they make contact with your bath water. The Epsom Salts soothes muscles and can also provide relief from sunburn and poison ivy.

Step Two

Take your wet ingredients and mix them together in your second bowl. The Lavender helps with blood circulation as you relax in your bath and the Moringa works on detoxifying your skin. If you have skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis Moringa will also help reduce inflammation and speed up healing.

Step Three

Add your wet mixture to your dry mixture one teaspoon at a time and whisk the ingredients together. You want to do this carefully so you don’t accidently start the chemical reaction. Save that for your bath tub! If you see any fizzing take your other teaspoon and press down on those areas to stop it.

Step Four

When all of the ingredients have been mixed, fill the mold of your choice and let mixture dry for one day before taking them out.

Store your unused bath bombs by using plastic wrap or an airtight container. Pop them in a drawer or your bathroom until you’re ready! No matter where you put them, just make sure they’re in a dry and cool place. For the best results use sooner, rather than later, because the smells and fizz wear out over time.
