Servings: 12 bath bombs

Ingredients

  • Silicone muffin mold
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • ½ cup epsom salt
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • ½ cup citric acid
  • 2 tablespoons fractionated coconut oil
  • Marshmallow oil or essential oil scent of your choice
  • Green soap colorant
  • Jumbo heart sprinkles
  • Water in spray bottle

Instructions

  • Add baking soda, epsom salt, cornstarch and citric acid to a mixing bowl; whisk to combine.
  • In a small bowl, combine coconut oil, water, marshmallow oil and green soap colorant.
  • Add the oil mixture to the dry ingredients, one tablespoon at a time.  It's important to add the oils slowly to avoid activating the bath bombs. Whisk the entire bath bomb mixture for about 3 minutes or until you have achieved your desired shade of green. The mixture is ready to mold if it clumps like damp sand (not wet) when you squeeze it in your hand. If it doesn’t clump to the desired texture, add an additional 1 teaspoon of water and whisk again.
    Bath bomb texture should feel like damp sand
  • Add a jumbo heart sprinkle to each mini muffin cup. Cover each heart with the bath bomb mixture and press down firmly with your fingers.  Allow to dry overnight.
  • Carefully press the bottom of the mold to release each Grinch bath bomb from the mold.
  • Store the bath bombs in a sealed, airtight container. If you're giving these homemade bath bombs as holiday gifts, tie a festive ribbon around them and call it a day. No gift wrapping needed... the bright colors in a clear jar are too pretty to cover up!
